    I really want to see him slam home a few alley oops this year. :)

    Re: Niang

    Niang has mentioned multiple times that his appreciation for playing basketball increased after his foot injury. No worries here.

    Re: Niang

    Being a likely wooden award finalist should motivate him.

    Re: Niang

    That chance we have for a Final Four berth could motivate him a little.

    I bet he's pretty motivated to get to the NBA.

    Finally a decent response not fixated on a typo. This is my thought exactly, Niang will have plenty of drive to prove himself after the foot injury, and Fred won't let him forget he is the leader of this team now. Plenty to keep him motivated.

    Can you imagine the attention that would get? Not because it looked nasty, but just because of who was doing it.

    That said, he is probably 5th on the list of which players to try it with: 1.) McKay 2.) BDJ 3.) Hogue 4.) Nader 5.) Edozie Or high-flying guard.

    I like the extra muscle. But I am worried about the weight he lost. He moved pretty good last year and their is a law called Physics.

    Re: Niang

    After tasting what could've been deep runs in the tourney the last 2 years, nobody that's been on the team should have any issues with motivation. They know they can do something very special.

    I know...it's not really his function on the team. But it would be so damn suhWeet after all of the crap about his vertical the last two years...sort of like an exclamation point every now & again. :)

    I am a little worried about the amount of *** he is going to beat on the court, and *** he will pull in off of it. When will the man sleep?

    In interviews earlier in the summer, Georges talked about how he was asked to put weight on last year in order to better battle under the basket defensively, and that he was asked to lose weight for this year.
