    Niang's Hook: Article

    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."

    Re: Niang's Hook: Article

    The jump hook is a deadly shot. My center in HS was 6'8", and as a 6'3" PF, I had to use it just to get my any shots off in practice. The trick is to keep your arm from starting behind your back. If you keep your hand in front of your face during the shot, it's really easy to control.

    Georges' hook makes defenders furious. I'll now refer to him as Furious Georges.

    I love that teardrop in the lane. In combination with the hook-shot, it makes him all the harder to defend and a high-percentage shot making machine.

    vBulletin seems to choke on apostrophes in link titles. So all the "Men's Basketball" links from the Trib get shortened to "Men".

    So when Niang squares off against Baylor’s Isaiah Austin and Iowa’s Adam Woodbury, it’s not exactly intimidating"

    Superb, although his post moves are ugly yet gorgeous to basketball buffs. So we could call him Gorgeous Georges.

    I would suggest you should shy away from comparing a player to a monkey....just sayin'....didn't work out so well for Howard Cosell. I know that's not what you mean, but yeah...no. Easily something that could be taken out of context and spun VERY negatively.
