here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
According to MLi ve, Caris LeVert played through noticeable pain much of last year. This is according to GRIII and Nik Stauskas. He complained of foot pain as well as sore knees . Obviously he had foot surgery recently to repair a stress fracture of his foot.
We can now return to talking about all of the injured players on the Michigan State basketball team.
Seriously this makes me even more optimistic of another huge uptick in LeVert's play now that he should no longer have to worry about his foot. I'm not sure if the foot issue could have contributed to the knee tendinitis but I would assume it might.
Appears Yahoo can't tell the difference between GRIII and Gary Harris.
Stauskas tied Kentucky's James Young for fifth in running vertical jump at 35.5 inches, ahead of Devyn Marble (Iowa), Jordan McRae (Tennessee), Dante Exum (International player; Australia), Joe Harris (Virginia), Lamar Patterson (Pittsburgh), Jabari Brown (Missouri) and Jordan Adams (UCLA).
Moreover, Stauskas ranked sixth among shooting guards in standing vertical leap at 29.0 inches, seventh in the shuttle run (2.92 seconds), ninth in the three-quarter court sprint and 11th in the lane agility drill (10.79 seconds).
Looking at the live updated scoreboard displaying each player's vertical leap, one participant turned and quipped, "There ain't no way Nik Stauskas can jump higher than me."
But he did, indeed.
Saw this on my timeline this morning:
Stauskas: he and Steph Curry had shooting match set up for his Mississauga backyard for last year, TSN would televise. NCAA rules nixed it.— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) May 16, 2014
Fuck the NCAA.
Apparently the Pistons are in discussions with Isiah Thomas to make him a minority owner. The percentage has not been determined. As long as he stays far away from running the team this may be good from a public relations perspective. I hope that is the main purpose.
