    Definitely need a proven scorer at the 2. Tyrese is going to be fantastic, but I'm going to guess we're looking at 12 ppg. Very, very efficient, plays winning basketball, but just doesn't have a scorer's mentality (yet). If Bolton isn't eligible, we need Lewis or Jackson to really step up (probably both).

    I know this is all just summer league and a lot of the highlights should be taken with a grain of salt, but man I love watching Tre Jackson. I haven't been to watch any games, but it seems like from the highlights he's getting the crowd involved all the time. It's not like he's dunking the ball either... His handle is on a string, his finishing ability is elite, and his quick shot release will help him acclimate quickly to the D-1 level. I hope we're able to look back and say man, he was a steal.

    Thanks for posting. Tre's dribbling reminds me of Tinsley, not sure we've had a player with that kind of handle since. Anderson's game reminds me of Niang's.

    Leech didn't play?

    I am far from a talent expert, but Jackson looks better than his 3 star rating.

    Leech and Grill were not there last night. I agree on Anderson's game and the other person that I would compare him to is Dean Wade.

    Leech and Grill were the only no shows yesterday. It was Leech’s first missed game. Hopefully he’s back on Thursday. I love watching his game.

    The game looks so easy for him. With that stroke I'd be surprised if his floor isnt 40% from three. He seems to have great floor presence as well and the ability to facilitate.

    The combination of good handles, the quickness to blow by you, and the ability to hit the three could be pretty lethal.

    He and Haliburton will both have a steady presence on the floor. Effecient games. Hopefully Haliburton is around for a couple more years our backcourt could be great.

    The thing that strikes me about him in the highlights is that he plays at his own pace all the time. Nobody at the Cap City League level is speeding him up, and then he uses that control of pace to blow by guys, kind of like a pitcher who uses a great change up to play up a middling fastball.

    I just wish Jackson was bigger than 6'1" and roughly 170.

    I know small guys an be good basketball players... see Monté Morris on that one... but it is hard to survive on that size on skill alone without elite athleticism.

    Sounds like Jackson might be the first guard off the bench this season, or even starting if Prohm wants to play small/fast and Bolton does not end up with the waiver.

    I'm really excited about the young talent on this team. The freshmen all can shoot the ball. I was most excited about Jackson's High School highlights and he has carried that into the summer league. Conditt and TH are a year older and are going to be really good.

    It is also great to see Zion healthy. His shot looks better and he has his bounce back. He may be a huge surprise this year if he can play solid defense.

    Solomon looks healed.

    Conditt has some good hands.

    Wow, I loved this highlight.

    That dunk was very impressive, but what stood out to me the most was an expolosiveness and burst that I don't think I've seen from Zion yet.

    Looked like he was dunking on a 9 ft rim.

    Prentiss's 3pt percentages continue to struggle. Is he nursing an injured hand?

    I haven't watched enough live action, but based on the highlights I've seen from CSU and CCL, his shot selection might be the issue. He likes to shoot contested shots off the dribble, often kicks his leg out, and fades away. These all lead to inconsistencies.

    Prohm said that he improved his three-point shooting in his year off. I guess we'll see. Every player is better off catching and shooting open three pointers. Nixon appears to prefer the fake crossover pull-up jumper with a hand in his face (not sure what the actual move is called), which looks cool, but is low-percentage. I wouldn't doubt if Nixon shoots well on the gun or in workouts, but struggles to translate it to live action. Just a hunch.

    There's a reason why Haliburton shot so well last season. He was wide open and didn't dribble.

    Grill and Jackson got 2nd/3rd in the 3 pt contest tonight and Rasir Bolton just jumped over 2 dudes to win the dunk contest. Guy can hop!

    Do I need to post a link to all my highlights from tonight or does everyone know where to find them if they want to watch?
