We've been missing this for a long, long time.
Reminds me of Steph Curry. He’ll look good beside Karl Malone.

Once we sign Robert Parish we're set!

I saw Robert Parish play at Horton. He led the Gentlemen to a win over the Redbirds, and made Jeff Wilkins think he should leave the post and shoot from the perimeter.

I'm not sure what I like more about this news: The player and his skill-set, or an opened door to CPL basketball and Simeon HS.

Way to go, HCDM and staff! Welcome, Antonio!

Not to spoil all the good karma, but ISU tagged the wrong person in their tweet. The random Antoine that got tagged has to be confused.

I wonder who is going to get the jersey number 3. Reeves tweeted a photo with him in ISU #3 and Torres has one in 3 as well.

If Reeves can defend he will play a lot as a Frosh. He will instantly be one of the best shooters on the team. And he’s big enough to score around the rim. Really quick release and soft touch 8 feet in.

Gotta get in the weight room and work on lateral quickness.

He reminds me of Tyler Brown. Maybe not quite as athletic.

Torres will only be here one season, so I would say Reeves for 3

Why all the fuss about getting kids at the 1 or 2 position into the weight room? Added muscle can sometimes limit mobility.
Great guards that were skinny...Curry, Tayshaun Prince. Even Durant is thin as a rail.

All those players are thin but wiry and I’ll bet they strength trained big time too. Some people just do not put on much mass when strength training but they do become quicker, faster, more mobile, less susceptible to injury and most importantly better basketball players. I can’t think of a player or college program that does not highly prioritize strength training for every player in a big time manner. Part of the routine basketball “weight” training includes focus on adding strength, increasing mobility and quickness. Sorry Cali but I believe any college conditioning/strength trainer (and btw many power conference basketball teams have one full time trainer solely assigned year around for training just their men’s basketball program players) would laugh at your comment.

Talk about old school. It's strength training not body building or power lifting and everyone better do it
Strength-Speed-Agility-Endurance. You want your guards to have their legs under them when they take that jump shot in OT right?

I understand all of that, trust me.
My mistake was assuming that “getting him the weight room”, meant adding bulk.

Kenny Smith remarked that Durrant couldn't put 185 over his head once. Charles reminded him that the ball doesn't weigh 185 pounds.

I was at that game as well … Wlkins played decently, but Parrish could defend a team ….
