Brandon Knight is playing so so..needs to cut down on the TO...still learning how to run the team.
Monroe isn't giving a full effort (rightfully so, its preseason)
Drummond is living up to is nickname...the "Manchild"...he's a hard to box out...good offensive rebounder..but needs to work on the post game...still doesn't know how to play aggressively in the post...but ill come eventually...great shot blocker..by the looks of it he should be starting after all star break.
I like Terrrance Williams and what he's done so far..he' s a nice defensive player..nice at playing back up point..good rebounder and(although he may not score alot at pg) he's DISTIBUTES first..which was something we lacked in Bynum..Personally i think he'll make the team...Lawerence Frank seems to have a liking to him..
Daye is still foul prone. but is rebounding better...
Villianueva, i think should be on his way out...but i doubt they'll trade him although Josh Smith didn't want to sign an extent. (hint, hint lol)
Slava Kratsov is on a learning curve so its gonna take awhile so him to get comfortable..
Khris Middelton has a nice little game..someone to keep an eye on..
Kyle Singler...goes out provides energy..and shows his scoring mentality
Flynn....havent seen enough of him..
“Yeah, it’s been great,’ Davis tells HOOPSWORLD. “Just got to keep working hard, it’s been tough on us, tough on me especially because of guys coming after me. I got to learn how to play through that and move onto the next game.”
Our own Tommy Beer tackled the subject head on earlier this month with an honest and straightforward article defending White. Now, HOOPSWORLD caught up with White recently to get his side of the story.
When the dust was settled, White had guided the Cyclones to a 23-11 record before the team fell to the eventual national champion Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament.
White followed his exceptional freshman season with a solid NBA Summer League after being drafted by the Rockets, and now the 6’8 forward just wants to fit in with Houston.
The New York Knicks’ frontcourt is banged up heading into the season. All-Star forward Amar’e Stoudemire will likely miss the first month of the season nursing a knee injury and veteran center Marcus Camby isn’t physically ready to play just yet.
Can the Miami HEAT repeat their championship quest from last season? Is this the final championship run for the aging Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs? Will Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks finally put all of their talent together and join the league’s elite? Can the new-look Los Angeles Lakers, now boasting Dwight Howard and Steve Nash unseat the Oklahoma City Thunder as Western Conference champions?
“One thing about Brandon, when he wants to get away to work on his game, you won’t see him,” said DeMar DeRozan, who is friends with Jennings. “That’s one thing about this summer. I saw him a couple of times here and there, but he definitely stayed isolated working on his game. He doesn’t like anyone figuring him out or letting people know that he is working on anything. You can tell as he doesn’t really play in too many leagues back home, so he won’t give away what he has been working on for the season.”
“More or less, Brandon is shooting and scoring right now because guys like Monta are driving and kicking to him and guys like Mike,” Skiles said. “They know when they play together that has been Brandon’s best shot. Spotting up, feet set for threes or twos, those are good shots for him.
