    Demo got a reaction from ALASKA HOOSIER in Book Thread   
    Steinbeck. When I first got out of college I spent a lot of time on the road and doubt there were any trips that I didn't have something of his with me. I've lost track of the number of times I've read Cannery Row.

    That lineup would really struggle to defend.

    Decent piece of video. Some really well-timed, accurate passes and a cute little left hand finish off a drop step. Have always thought the kid had pretty good vision, but it might be better than that.

    Nice interview but, in the way of editorial, IMO’s pizza is objectively gross.

    Couple of things to add to the breakdown in video #3, which, I agree, is very good. 1) Reed has been really well coached on the block. He has a drop step/counter action that is just textbook. He finishes easily over either shoulder with either hand.  He keeps the ball high in traffic. And when he doesn’t see a double he is extremely decisive. 2) He’s still so young that there is a lot of projection here, but I wouldn’t be so sure that he’ll become a good pick and roll defender. He struggles to move laterally and really struggles to change direction. I saw 3 Chaminade games last year and he was in foul trouble in all of them. 3) Love his demeanor. Love it. He is a tough kid. The 1st video above shows him committing a hard foul on Caleb Love(UNC). I was at that game. He actually knocked Love down TWICE. And then just stood over Love and stared him  down. How many HS sophomores have you seen try to physically intimidate McDonald’s All Americans? 4) He’s a high D1 kid on skill level and physicality alone, but if the athleticism and movement keep coming, he will be a load.

    Have seen Reed several times. I’ll write something more complete at some other point. Bottom line: big, physical, tough low post hammer. Big body,  pretty good athlete. Has a nasty streak. Like this offer a good bit.

    Love Mohammed and Kaufman, but this is my #1 kid regardless of class. Kind of hard to see him getting out of the SEC, but if Miller can get a visit, ya never know.

    Yeah, he has some physical maturing to do. When he plays from a point of balance he’s really good. But there’s some calf on skates going on when he’s scrambling.  And he also appears to still be growing. He’s now listed 6’10” pretty much everywhere. The last game I saw him was in January and I thought he was probably a full 6’8”.
