that is nice bonus change
Welcome to the Knicks THJ!
But maybe the Bulls, because I hear they once were a rival of the Pistons, and what's most important to me now is rooting against the Pistons.
We likely all remember that McGary's success in the tournament apparently had something to do with him losing weight. Dylan over at UMoops noted the other day that he was listed at 266 lbs at the Nike Academy and worried that he'd added his old, bad weight back. It turns out that isn't true. Someone watching the camp tweetered that he looks "downright svelte," and the big fella sent out a pic of himself with Anthony Davis (I can't get the thing to embed) in which he looks pretty fit. It seems like things continue to be on the upswing with our favorite unicycle-riding big man.
PS: Read UMHoops if you don't already (I have no connection to it). It's about Michigan! And basketball! And Michigan basketball!
Still no 2015 commits for Kim Barnes Arico and the Michigan basketball program, but they today picked up a 2017 commit—5-8 guard Brelynn "Bre" Hampton-Bey—after getting a pledge from Akienreh Johnson in the 2016 class last week. Having attending Springfield Middle School, Hampton-Bey will join Johnson at Toledo Rogers High School this fall. Hampton-Bey also plays AAU ball for the same program as Johnson—the Toledo Vipers.
There's little available on the web about Hampton-Bey—which isn't surprising given that she just finished 8th grade—but If I come across anything else I'll post it here or in the recruiting board thread. I did find this video of her dunking—but certainly not on a 10-foot rim. There's another video of her supposedly dunking on 9.5-foot rim, so perhaps that's the height here.
i hope it's wrong. he has Trey going to OKC (a terrible situation for him) with the 12th pick.
he also has THJ to LAC with the 25 pick (which in my opinion would be a good situation).
if Trey really got stuck behind Russell Westbrook and fell to 12 that would be awful. here's hoping Chad Ford is wrong again.
