Practice starts this week

Is that insane or what?

So true...so sad.

So my 'best 5' at this point would be...

Brown
DLO
Kennel
Childs
Ari

That doesn't mean that's who will start. But I think those are your 5 best players.

Pittman could be in the mix but otherwise looks good.

Barring injury I would be surprised if this isn’t the opening night starting five.

Agreed. I think Pittman or Bar are a combination for 6th man to spell DLO and Ari.

DLO 100% as well! He's the glue and no one plays better D. I'd be shocked if he does not start.

Why? From what I have heard Boya has been very good in practices.

We've had about 50 All-Americans in practice this century alone.

Just a hunch that a new guy won't immediately start over a reliable veteran... No basis in fact. By that logic real fan you need to pencil in Pittman to start as well. Heck, Pittman might even be a Valley POY candidate too. ;) :lol:

Koch Bar has a breakout year. You heard it here first.
Do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior Brian Wardle?

Define “ breakout “......

I’ve heard he’s looked great in practice :D

If the guy gives us a good 4-6 ppg 3-4 boards 1 apg and 1 block per game including reducing turnovers in about 10-12 mpg id be happy....
So I was in the airport the other day and I saw AL B., PM me if you want more details.

It's possible, I suppose. It's also possible they are practicing in a unique location. They probably got displaced today due to the naturalization ceremony at RC.

Random thoughts...

1. Koch will be very important to the team this year, whether off the bench or starting. He was unfairly maligned last year (and most of his career), and we were more often than not a better defensive team with him out there than not. He also is about as good of a FT shooter as there is for a near-7 footer. He spent most of last year nursing an injured hand, which did affect his ability to catch the ball (a sore spot for many of us). He will be important this year.

2. I'm fine with us not practicing today. Basketball practice starting in September is silly. No one is getting an advantage by 'practicing' on September 25 for a game on November 6. We already had 10 practices this summer, so if BU wants to just do conditioning and shooting for a week and crank it up next week, that's fine with me. We talkin' bout practice!

3. Congratulations to all of the new citizens today, what an achievement!

Best thing to happen to Bar is Boya and i mean that in a good way....and Bar is probably just as important to Boya also.

Any thoughts on that fellas.....
