Non-brawl Talking Points for 7/14/10:
- That 6'9" center who both Hooper and I initially and incorrectly knee-jerk supposed was a really tall and skinny offensive lineman who turned out to actually be a much more reasonable center of the roundball variety?
- Via Wes Rucker's Twitter feed, ESPN's Jay Bilas says that Tennessee guard Scotty Hopson was "the best athlete and the most fluid player" at the LeBron James Skills Academy. The best of whom, you ask? Oh, a whole bunch of guys ($), including players from Duke (Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith), Connecticut (Kemba Walker), Georgetown (Chris Wright), and Florida (Vernon Macklin and Chandler Parsons). LeBron has scheduled a miniseries to address the many ways he has helped these young men become . . . fluid and stuff.
