    I think it's messed up to call any college kid a disappointment.

    In this particular CCL game, Tre was getting in the passing lanes and had several deflections and steals. Similar to Tyrese.

    I'm sorry, but I have to politely disagree with this part of your post.

    I think everybody is saying about the same thing here.

    It is mostly a debate about how you phrase it and how much of an optimistic coda you want to put on your description of the career of Mr. Lewis so far.

    You know what they say about the perspective of those porta potty sanitary engineers. Their “stinking” perspective never changes and they often demean others in a thinly veiled effort to lift themselves up.

    To be fair, they're usually never the same people doing both.

    Great to hear. I haven't seen any more of this CCL game than the highlights that had been posted. I have big hopes for him, so love to hear that he's playing D - your comments fit w/ my sense that he has an excellent feel for the game. My comments were re: on-the-ball D from his HS videos. Hope he's looking good there too.

    based on cap city league game 1 stats we will have the highest scoring offense in America averaging approx. 240 points per game with 3 guys averaging 35+ and 4 averaging 20+.

    It's going to be a record setting season.

    One thing I remembered from Sunday was what the announcer said after a run of Tre Jackson threes:

    "His name is Tre, he wears number 3. You might want to guard him."

    Some lock down defense being played on those CCL games. Should be able to tell a lot. We had a guy like 10 years ago just destroying everyone in those games and he ended up sucking. Can't remember his name though.

    Watched most of the those two games and I've got to say that Zion Griffin is the one who really stands out to me. Bigger, athletic, and smooth. Worked fairly hard. He is the ideal size to me to try and bang in the Big XII.

    Conditt and Solo with some nice defense and hard work against each other and I imagine they'll get sick of each other after a while. Too bad it was most often rewarded with a guard making a 3. So is basketball these days.

    Leech looks like a nice guard but hard to tell on guards just making threes in this type of game. Terrance Lewis looks like he should compete for some playing time as well.

    This reminds me of the weird way hok fans talk about their teams before a season. X player averaged 10 ppg last season he’ll average 15 this year. This incoming Freshman looks good pencil him in for 10ppg. By then end they’ve always replaced everything they’ve lost plus 20 extra points, more rebounds, more assists...never fails with those morons.

    You are right --

    They are really good staying on the mediocrity conveyor belt.
