    Thanks Buddha. I meant to get that posted.

    The Low has graciously agreed to once again help cover the SL for us from Vegas at BadBoySummerCamp.

    The site will be getting a facelift shortly, and I am looking for one or two folks who would be willing to post news from the papers and online to the blog until the summer league is over. You can PM me if you are interested. I can definitely use the assistance, and it's easy and simple with the opportunity to explore your inner sports writer if you want to take it up a notch.

    Also, if you will be in Vegas for the Summer League, I'm pretty sure The Low would be happy to meet up with you at a game, and again, any observations/video/photos you have to share would be appreciated.

    I planned to go this year to carry The Low's gear and act as a bodyguard (not that he needs one) but those plans have come undone and I won't be able to attend.

    Feel free to post if you will be attending and I will do my best to help coordinate the PF community at AMIRSAMBFEST 2007. :D

    I don't recall if this is the first year that the Chinese National team will participate.

    If Low or anyone else is going to the games maybe they can ask Amir how tall he really is.

    Let it go, he's obviously taller than he was 2 years ago when drafted and is at least 6'10" now. I'll be absolutely shocked if he isn't 6'9.5" or taller in bare feet.

    Most of these heights are complete BS anyways.

    How many guys listed at 7' are shorter than Sheed? Tons of them.

    Paul Davis is 6'8.5" and was listed as tall as 6'11"...

    All I care is how tall he plays. Hopefully we will find that out real soon.

    that's some funny stuff. :MusicBigGrin:

    [FONT=Times New Roman,Georgia,Times]58. Uros Slokar-Toronto Raptors: Now they’re just making names up at the end of the draft to see if anyone is still paying attention.

    However I do agree that it was a pretty weak draft. The picks actually seemed to get better the further it went on.

    I would trade Will Blalock for Uros Slokar in a heartbeat. He had a very good late season game against us off the bench. Now there is a guy fans can get excited about possibly having some potential.

    he has to be. he's our only C.

    The fobb story is that he tore up his knee. would he have been something otherwise? Who knows.

    I am liking the fact that maxiell asked to join summer league. not only will his appearances make for exciting hoops but you gotta love that attitude.

    This guy (Fobbs) reminds me of a little known player from a small school (my undergrad school) in Kentucky called Murray State. That player was Popeye Jones, and while he never achieved star status, he had a pretty good career in the NBA. Small schools do occasionally produce some excellent talent...Joe D being one of the best examples.

    Some Summer League Information

    PISTONS: Summer Stock

    - additional players in the summer league: Ali Traore and Walker Russell Jr.
    - curry will be part of the coaching staff
    - johnson cannot sign as a free agent until the 11th, so he is expected to miss the 1st two games
    - maxiell was not expected to participate, but asked the pistons if he could, so he will be on the team
    - samb has been in town for a week and working out with the team
