    He's a legit 7 foot. Rivals reported his wingspan at 7'3

    Thanks Twins.

    So he is not a T-Rex at least.

    I think people understand that you can vape THC, rather I don't think anyone cares to bring it up because it's stupid to even bring up. Foster wasn't smoking weed in the high school boys bathroom. He was probably hitting a vape, something that although is stupid, it's incredibly popular among high school and college students. No one should worry or even give a crap that he did that.

    If he was smoking weed, I still wouldn't care.

    Yeah I mean I'd look at it slightly differently than simply vaping nicotine. I'd care more that he was doing it in school than anything. Like, if you're going to do that, just do it literally anywhere else lol. But yeah, the stigma surrounding weed has changed. It's not even going to be tested in the NFL anymore.

    And that’s my point. Everyone is watching you. Don’t do it at school. With a future in the NBA, I’d prefer he not do it at all, but I’m a grumpy old man I guess. I just don’t want him to be so openly dumb when he gets here. Although I know many players get away with worse, I just prefer he stay out of trouble and dominate. We need him.

    I shouldn't say that as it's a 100% fact, but I believe this was in the new CBA for the NFL and a lot of teams would like that to pass.

    I would just try not to let yourself read into more than it really is.. a kid hitting a vape. He wasn't out drinking (which also wouldn't be a big deal), he didn't get a DUI, or get caught with drugs in his car, or anything along those lines. Law enforcement was not involved in any way. It'd be no different than him throwing in a dip, but "vaping" has more of a negative conation than dipping these days.

    I'm happy that the X-man is a Cyclone. Can't wait to see the athletic 7 footer in Cardinal and Gold.
    Swirl on.

    We’re going to have great length next year! And multiple lineup options. I think the defense will be much improved.

    As far as the people that are questioning Xavier because he is outside on the perimeter a lot and not inside dunking on 6’2 guys, I do think people aren’t taking into account that he had mono midseason. When you have mono, even when you get back to playing, you are a million miles from 100%. Stamina, strength, and explosiveness all take a considerable hit for what seems like forever. I think a lot of what people are attributing to Xavier being lazy is that.

    It's an incredibly stupid narrative people are pushing. If Xavier were dunking on these kids (which he did a ton so I don't understand where this all came from), then people would say "Well what else can he do? Those kids are 6"2" white kids from Iowa playing 3A basketball."

    He never had mono. He attended every game in street clothes that he wasn't playing in. Mono was the "excuse".

    How does attending games in street clothes mean that it wasn't mono?
