    Default The 2010 Media Day Thread

    Figured we could go ahead and start ONE thread here so that they board doesn't have 87 new threads with every little thing that comes out today. Media day starts in 30 minutes (at Noon). Hopefully we get some cool pics, videos, articles, etc. from today's event.

    Can't wait to see if Hansbrough is beefed up!

    First bit of information to be tweeted from Mike Wells is some good news...

    http://twitter.com/MikeWellsNBA/status/25697417154
    O'Brien said they plan to work through Hibbert in the post this season.

    If Obie is shooting straight right now with all the info that has been posted via Twitter (PF's in the post now that Troy is gone, and running a half court offense that is focused on Roy) I will be very impressed with him.

    I'm still not sure he'll be a great coach, but I'll at least give him bonus points for being flexible.

    The removal of Troy may be the key. He was a crutch and his play style forced the team to design our offense a certain way.

    My question got answered:

    [Comment From Bryon: ]
    Coach O'Brien: If the season started tomorrow, what would be the starting lineup?


    12:02 Coach: I think if we started tonight, it would be Hibbert at center, Granger at SF, Dunleavy at SG, Collison at PG, and McRoberts at the PF spot. Obviously that is subject to change, but if you put me on the spot - that's who I would start right now.

    Obie listed McRoberts starting at PF if he had to decide today, setting up all of his fans for disappointment.

    Someone needs to ask if Dun would be starting even if Rush wasn't suspended.

    Mike starting at the 2 again? Oh, joy. I sure hope he's as healthy as it sounds like he may be. I can (temporarily) stomach that if it's the '07-'08 Mike, and if he later gives that role up to Rush or George, but if that's all year......

    If Dun's in 07-08 form, Rush or George most likely wouldn't even sniff starting minutes at the SG spot. I don't see either of them averaging anywhere close to 19 points a game.

    12:08 [Comment From Derek L Derek L : ]
    Roughly how many minutes per game should we expecting to see Josh McRoberts on the court? How to you envision our PF rotation?

    Monday September 27, 2010 12:08 Derek L
    12:10 Coach: As I mentioned, I believe Josh has an opportunity to be a starter for us. The role that I define for Josh is to run the court, go after every rebound on both ends of the court, and when he has the ball in his hands as a playmaker - to do something positive with the basketball. He is not being evaluated as a 3pt shooter. He has skills that are different than Troy Murphy's and will be evaluated on the 3 things that I listed.

    I am really impressed with this statement. I have assumed that the coach will change up the usage of his players and this is really telling about the role we are asking from McRoberts. The three things he listed, running the court, rebounding, and being productive with the ball in his hands, are all areas our team has needed to improve and he has the confidence in McRoberts to fill those roles. He might not be as confident in McRoberts as he is forced to use him, but at least the thought process is there IMO.

    I am pleasantly surprised to see that he listed McRoberts. I really like Hansborough as well, but coach is not expecting to give him big minutes initially. At least Seth is getting his wish a year and a half late.

    So are we supposed to feel bad for him that he gave up longtime friends?

    I think the opposite reaction was what he was going for. I think we are supposed to be happy that he has decided to part company for the sake of his job.

    You're lying if you said it'd be easy for you to stop seeing some of your life time friends. Even if you knew they compromised you some times. You'd remember the good times more than the bad.

    It's a hard decision to make speaking as someone who has had to do it.

    Maybe not feel bad, but I can at least understand the pain that can be associated with that decision and applaud him for doing it. (Assuming it's true and not just lip service.)
