Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“He’s making strides,” said Joseph. “He’s in better shape, he’s trimmed down tremendously. He’s a guy I’ve been with for two years, and I remember his jump from his freshman year to his sophomore year, and he puts in a lot of work that people may not see all the time. But I was there, personally, and I saw the hard work that he puts in and his dedication to the game. So, since summer league, he’s really been doing well, pick-and-rolling like they want him to, dunking, blocking shots. He’s doing all the things necessary to win basketball games.”
“Fab dunked on me three times,” admitted Joseph. “I was late on a couple rotations. But I got him back [Thursday]. Real good. For game point. Yeah, I dunked on him [Thursday].”
I’m always stunned when guys come into the NBA in anything but elite shape. They should be able to find 2-3 hours per day to work out.
A lot of times, young big men will pack on the weight to fill out their frame. Being fat is better than being slim because it keeps them from getting pushed around.
I’m not worried about Fab. Anyone remember how flabby Kendrick Perkins was during his rookie season in Boston?
I’m curious who you all think will have a better rookie season, Fab or Kris Joseph? Let’s throw Dionte Christmas into the mix, too.
