    Weaks in front of Noah/Murphy.
    (Dan) Williams back row far right
    Frazier 4th from right 2nd row.
    Is that Wright back middle (next to Horford...er...Dupay :) )?

    Of his former stars, who did not return? Mike Miller, Matt Bonner, Brewer, Taurean, Williams, David Lee, Donell Harvey, Walsh, Roberson, ...?? I think some were playing overseas, but others could have been there for their head coach.

    Wilbekin and Kasey Hill are playing overseas.

    But, I think the turnout was pretty impressive, regardless. I'll assume most of those who didn't make it just had other commitments, which is okay. Busy lives.

    Didn't Lee get married a few months ago? I am surprised Jason Williams didn't make it, as he was one of the players rumored to be coming beforehand.

    He's there a lot, I'm sure he would have been there if he could have been.

    Impressive list of those who were able to make it. There was never going to be a perfect time for everyone to make it but picking the all star break gave the most people a chance at making it in. I mean BB easily could have chosen to be a part of the all star festivities.

    Something tells me the guys that didn't make it personally reached out to Billy about it. Must have had good reasons.

    Love it. It's one thing realizing we had a coach that won at the highest level, it's another thing, as in a real life teaching moment for our young players, that UF had the players and through some selflessness, accomplished all that is possible in the NCAA (04s)

    Also, is Erik Murphy the most forgettable pretty solid player we've ever had? I was in a room with some pretty hardcore Gator Basketball fans and not one of us recognized him. But he was really good in 2013

    Really great seeing all the guys back and not just speaking highly of Billy but also their time at Florida!

    It's a shame that Beal was able to attend, because he got robbed out of an NBA All-Star slot. How do you average 29.1 points per game and not make the All-Star Team. Smh.

    I believe that's Greg Cristell next to Patrick Young.

    Erik Murphy. I originally thought it was Jwill, then Mike Miller.

    It's because of their losing record, but that's more Wall's absence than anything...if anything Beal has significantly stepped up every facet of his game (assists and rebounds too)

    I don’t care if you lost every game. Scoring 29.1 ppg is All Star worthy to me. Maybe if it was 22-23 ppg, but 29 is hard to deny. I’m not even a big Brad Beal fan, but he got hosed.
