The amazing thing to me is that his feet are no problem now after having feet problem for four years in Manhattan. Considering that a startling number of
our bigs have nursed foot injuries, we are either the most unlucky program around or something is amiss. It would behoove our trainers to look at whether or not ten pounds make that much of a difference or if shoes are a problem, etc.
Agreed. When you combine all of those foot injuries with the recruiting misses and the current guys showing potential, but not getting better, it seems obvious that we need to address this part of the program. Weber has a good class coming in and imo he better address this head on by pursuing an upgrade within his program.
Nearly all of the returning players appear to be playing at a lighter weight this year. Mawein , McGuirl and Diarra in particular. Sneed looks the same.

Edwards played there for a while. They liked his explosiveness but he was a little too volatile. He would lob up some bombs which were usually off target. If they tried to defuse him he would go ballistic. I think he now plays for the Shanghai Warheads in the Intercontinental League.
Sounds like his incendiary personality put him on a different trajectory. I hope his payload is better with the Warheads.
Yeah, its mega ton, but now they are afraid that if they fire him he will blow sky high. He's good though, you should see him turn on the after burners when he takes off, and when he launches he's soars up into the stratosphere. If he keeps going he'll be on a whole other planet.

When he changed teams, he said he nu clearly that his career trajectory needed a course correction. He also expressed his tanks to the players and coaches in North Korea.

He missed the last game because of atomic ache.
He needs to apply some of that atomic balm. That stuff will have an impact and really wipe out the pain.

What happened to the North Korea Missles thread? Did one of the moderators shoot it down?

I guess they wanted to blow up the thread.

Puff, I know there are certain aspects of his contract that allow for the back-n-forth nature of these 2way players but is that the sole reason? Every time I watch or see highlights it seems clear he’s good enough to be on Cavs. Is it better to develop a player in Canton/G-league than to play 10-15 minutes in nba and practice with them? I know he wasn’t necessarily getting 10-15 but I think he should/could have been.

Hopefully some contender trades for Love or even Nance.

Rodney's team (LAC) played Wesley's team (Orlando) today.

Rodney - 12 minutes, 0-1 shooting, 2 rebounds, 1 block, and 1 TO.

Wesley - 21 minutes, 3 - 5 shooting with 2 - 3 on 3's, 4 - 4 on FT's, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.

I don't know whether they were in the game at the same time. It would have been fun to see if they were.
