    Sunday's Washington Post had a feature on Jai Lewis/George Mason University, decided not to join the NY Giants Training Camp because his heart is in basketball.

    Now the guy is 6-5, 305lbs. He has a seriously sweet short jumper and soft hands. The problem is; he is too heavy to play SF and to short to play center.

    Should Joe D at least bring him into training camp to take a look at him. He is a small beast.

    It would be wise to room him with Cheikh Samb.

    I think Maxiell is that small beast too, but it wouldn't hurt to bring him into training camp. Right?

    I don't know if that would work. I can imagine a scenario where Saunders is running around searching for Cheikh, can't find him, and then questions Jai about it. Jai says, "Oh, the skinny guy? I ate him."

    It would be good to have a Mahorn type enforcer.

    I find it very difficult to rebound against players that are >300 lbs... no matter how short they are.

    LOL.

    Maybe he ate him. Or maybe they were just playing a friendly game of
    "Jai and go Cheikh".

    Perhaps Detroit needs to explore both Lewis and Chiekh.

    6'5 305lbs is MONSTROUS for his height. Definately not a great basketball body. A la Tractor Traylor anybody?

    Moses never used to jump into the air to get a board - all in the positioning. It would take an entire 24 second shot clock to run around this guy, so he should get 30 boards a game.

    Just for reference, Tractor Traylor is listed at 6'8" and 284.

    This guy doesn't scare me. He should be scared if he tries to eat J-Max.
