    Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    Mel and Deandre were killer, but my player of the game was Naz. His 3's were big as they came at key points in the game. Welcome to the big time.

    Last year I wondered what Fred saw, but if tonight is any indicator, we have a special player in the corner.

    Naz is the new Babb.

    Solid D, hits the three. Great teammate.

    Naz has a better shot than Babb though. Which makes it even sweeter.

    Re: Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    He does look fantastic this year, and very comfortable on the court. His threes came at times when we really needed them.

    Maybe he's the new McGee?

    After tonight, I'm sure Ejim will be starting again, and Naz will be coming off the bench, kinda like McGee last year. I know if I was Hoiberg and we needed some offense, I wouldn't hesitate to put Naz in, ala Tyrus McGee.

    Re: Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    As the creator of the "Babbed" meme, I want to be the first to introduce "You got Nazzed" for when Naz shuts down his man.

    Re: Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    I would just like to say that I love having Canadian basketball players. They bring talent and intangibles, and almost have me convinced that Canada itself isn't a joke.

    By the end of the year, I'll be singing "O, Canada."


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    He already has a nickname, 3sus of Nazareth.

    Personally, i think Naz should remain a starter. He has certainly earned it.

    Re: Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    Has shot it better than Thomas to date. And plays much better D.

    Yeah, I think you're right. Next game I think Ejim starts and Thomas sits. Didn't think of that for some reason.

    Re: Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    As far as I'm concerned, Naz has earned a starting spot ahead of Thomas. I still see Thomas playing a huge role, but Naz > MT currently.

    That might actually work in MT's favor anyway, and take some pressure off.

    He could grow into the McGee role that way.

    Re: Naz Long, Corner Pocket

    Thomas will be coming off the bench. Got to believe Naz has cemented his spot. But Fred doesn't always put the top 5 in for starters he values a good spark to lead the 2nd team.
