    I saw 2 long McRoberts jumpers in the first two minutes. Solo had a really nice move against Roy as well.

    I assume the blonde guy is Lance Allred.


    #15 is Magnum.

    I saw two typical TJ moves as within the first two minutes as well...supposedly he played well today though.

    My initial take is that we are seeing more of the same old same old, but what should I, or anyone else, expect in that this was the very first official practice that this group of players has ever played together, and there has been absolutely no chance for anything to have been done from a coaching standpoint other than to let the guys play street ball to get slightly familiar with what they like to do on the court and introduce themselves to each other as players instead of people.

    Hopefully Walton is still available. Roy needs lots more work unless they happened to pick the parts of the scrimmage that he looked the worst and that he was the least involved in offensively. He got pushed away from the rim as opposed to being able to attack it, just like he always has, and that was disappointing. But, it is still exceptionally early and impossible to tell until we see the first preseason game.

    Stephenson is a scorer, and George looks like he might be able to defend.

    Granger appeared to move well.

    Dunleavy looked pretty good overall from an energy and awareness standpoint, and Foster did, too.

    McRoberts did OK, but mostly seemed to be a non-factor, especially when matching up against Foster.

    I need to re-watch this video to glean anything else from it.

    I look forward to seeing what everybody else thinks.

    Darren had a really good pass (the one to Roy), he's energetic too.

    Lance couldn't get by AJ (not really a good sign, considering AJ's still slightly gimpy) and didn't even try to get passed Darren. (Meanwhile Darren could go where ever the heck he wants) I think his quickness will be a (well another) problem at the point. On the other hand, I'm sure he could punish both of them physically, and score that way. Regardless..if he's still here, we should stop the PG fantasy unless we need him as a third PG. (aka, we trade Ford)

    I thought Solo looked good. Better than Josh.

    Also, Hibbert didn't look as bad second time viewing. He scored a few times and got at least one rebound, he just had that terrible shot against Solo.

    Josh made a three. Great Josh. Let's not encourage JOB, kay thx.

    Darren and TJ both look fast, difference was I didn't see Darren do anything stupid.

    he is in the beginning of the video(#50) he is the one that runs kind of weird

    he is the one blocking Collisons (I think)

    edit: By the way TJ has not change he is still the same guy.

    Liked Tyler spacing the court early and the quick run back on defense that led to a block. Looks like our PGs want to run the PnR with Foster or Solo, but maybe they should get a different partner. Roy looks good and like Josh's activity on the low block. Both need to use some more power under the basket.

    I don't think calling him a shooting guard is zinging him. :P

    And Josh shooting threes just means that Josh isn't stupid. He knows what his playing time comes down to.

    I also saw him being active on the inside and playing nice defense. Also you have no basis to assume he is being "judged" on the 3. He took one three pointer and made it, woopie. He has put alot of work into that shot, he is going to use it from time to time regardless of whether the coach requires him to or not.

    I don't think one made 3 pointer warrants judgement of JOB, some people just hate him so much that they are going to criticize anything he does, or blame any players choice on him.

    I am referring to Obies press confrence where he said "Josh will not be judged on shooting, but rebounding and defense and blocked shots, in fact Josh wont answer to any staff memeber about shooting" (paraphrasing).

    It almost seemed as if Obie was making a point to say that.

    Then in the scrimmage we see Josh firing up long jumpers and three's

    So in essence, I dont believe Obie when he says that Josh shouldnt worry about shooting , as evidence by the scrimmage

    we look soooo sloppy put there. I am not liking JMac (McRoberts) shooting all those 3's

    My observations:

    Paul George: seems to be long and strong, Dunleavy can't even pass trough the guy.

    Tyler: looks healthy and in the beginning of the video he looks aggressive and even got to block a shot.

    Foster: looks healthy.

    Hibbert: looks fit, not sure if this is bad or good (I like my centers to have some weight to move people around) he is running quicker.

    TJ: same old guy, he jumps and lose the ball like always

    Dunleavy: same old guy.

    Mcbob: he looks out of control and is shooting way too much from outside

    Solo: he looks decent but we already know who he is.

    Brandon Rush: looks agressive, eveytime he gets the ball wants to go inside(I like that)

    Collison: he knows were everybody is, he is as quick as TJ but in more control.

    AJ price: he is looking healthy (is going to be nice to see him competing againts Collison)

    Lance: he looks a bit lost, he had a nice shot over Collisons at one time.


    Danny: he looks like he wants to get everybody involve and is not looking to get his own shot that much.
