    It's exciting when new players get together for the first time, simple things can have great "meaning" -

    Who "wins" the wind sprints?
    Who can "block-out", hold a pick, dish the ball.

    Who can "score" especially on the low blocks

    Whom is the best 'fast-break" personnel -
    Who do we depend on in the offensive 'sets"
    late in the shot clock.

    Could go on forever but I think the first couple of weeks are always interesting because you start to see whom "works" hard and whom begins to separate themselves.

    I'm really hoping Gak and Bassett make a little jump forward this year. The low post rotation will be important and hopefully our 3 big's work out an effective rotation this year.

    Jason is one big Man. Between Payne and Him we might be all right down low in the future. Did I say that's a big Man?
    Our Big Man Coach needs to teach a good proper Hook shot.

    You can be 3 feet tall and teach someone a hook shot, although you might have to shout.

    Major surprise for me if he doesn't go to Okie State. Probably the best all-around player in this year's class. I'm not comparing him to Magic but he can be whatever player position he needs to be.

    Just at a glance, looks like Klatsky has added a lot of muscle. And Gak looks much stronger than he did the last time he took the court.

    So true. Yet you hardly see any bigs doing it.

    Thank you jjh - appreciate the posts. Awesome to see the players together.

    Hey - is it my imagination or does Payne look "taller" in that one group pic than KB?

    It's not your imagination. He "looks" taller, but looking at his feet, it appears he's standing on his tip-toes.
