    Darius is Russell Westbrook combined with MJ.

    I'm sure I will be well out in front of the pack when it comes to not sleeping on McNeil.

    I hope Darius compares well to Naz . . . off the court!

    Naz's greatest value to his teams was his leadership and character, if you ask me. That's what we'll miss more than anything. Hopefully these new guys take a page out of Georges/Monte/Naz's book with regard to leadership and work ethic. If they do, look out. The talent is without question.

    I'll be happy if McNeill is half the player and person Naz is.

    And that's more of a compliment to Naz, more than anything.

    Love that last play. At least two defenders were getting back and were in way better position to get there, and he still beat them all down the floor.

    I see a hybrid of Adam Schaper's athleticism with Mike Taylor's intelligence, and just can't help but salivate. Adam's mug, perhaps, best describes my fanboy giddy.

    I'm expecting big things from him, but am not sure what to expect this year. Just not sure if he'll be ready ball-handling wise -- there have been a lot of really talented guards who have needed a year of experience to get their TOs in check.

    He's kind of like Solomon in that he looks like an obviously underrated player when you watch him on film.

    I bet he will become a Prohm favorite because he's a lefty. Got to have a lefty in there or it's not Cyclone basketball..

    Yeah. Probably should go ahead and forget about him.

    I was just about to post something similar - suggesting that Jstanz change the thread title to "Scouting the Guy You SHOULD Forget About - Darius McNeill"
