    If Matt Thomas hits the ground being JJ Redick good, look the **** out.

    Re: Hoops Insider: Kane shines in "secret scrimmage"

    Redick is/was not a spot-up shooter. He is great at running off picks, pump faking, two-dribble pull-ups, good vertical, etc. I don't think Matt is as quick, but definitely has a stroke and the fluidity of Redick.

    NOTE: I'm not saying Matt Thomas is JJ Redick. It's a fun comparison noted by one of Matt's teammates that sees him play every day.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    This is what I am waiting to see. I am hoping Kane can pick us up on D but I think I am maybe relying on him to do everything.

    Thomas has said he compares his game to Redick when asked before. He looked pretty athletic at CCL games but who doesn't, excited to see him play and what he can do against competition

    Re: Hoops Insider: Kane shines in "secret scrimmage"

    I expect Thomas to be the perfect combination of Coach Dreamy and JJ Redick.

    Okay maybe not but I do expect the kid to be lights out. I can't wait to watch him play. I love the fact that we have two true freshman (and a handful of young and very talented guys in Niang, SDW, Naz, etc.) that are going to get huge minutes this year. Makes me incredibly excited not only for this season but for the following years that they'll have together.
