    Love the line-up discussions between Chris and Blum which ends with "oh, and we forgot to mention Dustin Hogue..."

    I'm excited to see Nader play. The comparisons to Royce are surprising, but I'm guessing that's more of a body-type comparison.

    Yeah, Nader is a better shooter, but not nearly the passer or probably the rebounder. The discussion about him being a "tough shot" maker is intriguing. I'm still very curious to see where Nader's shots come from within the offense, how much of the ball he sees.

    but this is going to be REALLY fun team on the break. The Morris-BDJ-Nader-Hogue-McKay line-up running rim to rim is potentially unstoppable.

    Re: PODCAST: Abdelmassih on the CF Radio Show

    The coaches think Nader is going to be one of the best offensive players in the league. He's very good offensively and another tough matchup for defenses because of his versatility.

    We have some serious fire power this year.

    In a way but I think that they are pretty accurate.


    Big body, big wingspan, that said, what will be surprising is if he handles the ball as much.


    The roster is way deeper than the Royce year.

    Re: PODCAST: Abdelmassih on the CF Radio Show

    We have 3 legit matchup night mares with BDJ, Niang and Nader that can all post up if they're guarded by smaller players, but can generally take advantage of their perimeter game if they're defended by bigger guys.

    Combine that with a really good floor general at PG, 2 shooters (Naz & Thomas), and two athletic energy guys like Hogue and McKay, who can run, dunk and rebound all day.

    Re: PODCAST: Abdelmassih on the CF Radio Show

    I get goosebumps just thinking about how much fun this year could be. There's no way the opposing teams will be able to focus on just stopping one guy... nightmare match-ups everywhere.

    If our defense improves, this year could be incredible.

    Re: PODCAST: Abdelmassih on the CF Radio Show

    I do expect Nader to be an elite scorer or all-conference type. Imo Nader is going to be similar to a Chris Allen type talent, and at times will struggle with not having a high usage rate in a similar manner.
