Let me touch on a few things today since there isn't a whole lot going on.

  • The 5 position is one item I would like some input on. There are some of you that understand things far more in depth than I do here so here goes. Diallo’s standing reach is 9’1" which is the same standing reach or greater as Zimmerman (Tarik Black has an 8’11" standing reach). Diallo is not as tall but theoretically should be just as effective playing the 5 as Zimmerman. I believe Diallo can probably jump higher, is more athletic, and has a 7’4" wing span so shouldn’t signing Diallo be more significant than almost all of the 2015 OAD 5’s? If your finger tips measure the same height as a 7 footer than you are basically the same height in basketball terms since you don’t play with your head. If you are rebounding a ball you only have to jump the same distance as the 7 footer so BINGO right? DID we sign someone that can compete at the 5 when we landed Diallo?

    Next up Tevin Mack, I think our chances are better with Mack more so than anyone else left in the top 100. Should be a good 4 year relationship for all of you older more sentimental fans that like watching players develope. HCBS is said to have paid Mack a visit this week and my sources tell me KU is a strong candidate for his services. I have infiltrated his inner circle similar to Diallo so I actually have good info on this kid.

    I believe next years team will resemble the 2010-2011 team that was favored to win it all. No 7’ers but but similar to the Morri and T-rob we have Ellis, Diallo, and Bragg. I guess we will see how these 3 stack up to the FOE team? Those are some large shoes to fill but there is some resemblance Marcus the shorter twin and Ellis the shorter 4 on this years team will lead in scoring followed by Diallo the taller but not as polished 5 similar to how we played the Morri. With HOPEFULLY quality bench minutes from Bragg similar to T-Rob (and I am not compairing the 2 lol). Our back court is just as good if not better the 3rd 4th and 5th leading scorers on that team were Reed, Taylor, and Selby. I believe Mason, Selden, and Svi could be just as or possible more effective than the 2010-2011 back court.

    I like our chances next year and I think Brown would take it to the next level BUT he has broken the silence and is starting to talk. Its looking like MU and UK are the biggest possible destinations for him. Tevin Mack seems more realistic for KU. I guess we will see?
