I think Sherron Collins is going to prove it was a bad idea not to draft him. He may be a little out of shape but he's pretty good.

Gerald Henderson taking it back to his Duke days. If he plays like this, he'll get minutes for sure.

Sixteen minutes from the McBob show.

In all seriousness I really don't expect him to get a lot of minutes. I'm really anticipating see Lance Stephenson trying his 0 guard Gilbert Arenas type point guard spot they've been trying him at since the draft. Him and Magnum Rolle, the coaching staff's been saying he's a lot more than just the lanky athletic guy they expected. And of course my first time ever seeing Paul George in a game situation.

I saw two of Paul George's games at Fresno State and the dude is fun to watch. You'll be in for a show (hopefully). Saw plenty of Stephenson in the Big East and I like his handles and mid range game, but I really don't see him as point guard. At all. Not even in the Tyreke Evans mold.

I don't either, also at all. I guess his handles could be adequate for it, and in Jim O'Brien's offense about the only traditional PG trait he uses is the 1 bringing the ball up the floor, after that it's predominately off ball. Still, I worry about him guarding 2s, let alone NBA 1s.

I'm hoping it's just a quick experiment since the roster's so PG depleted, they'll quickly realize it ain't happening and hey, it was worth a look. If they try and fit a round peg into a square hole we got problems though.

Speaking of PGs, I'll get to see Huertel too. I think he's got a decent shot to make the roster, Bird apparently likes him a lot.

Any idea why Hansbrough, Brandon Rush, and AJ Price aren't playing?

Hansbrough's still dealing with the inner ear problem, supposed to be ready for training camp. I'll believe it when I see it, I'm worried about his future.

AJ Price broke his knee in a charity game about a month ago and had surgery a few days later. May miss the first month or so of the season.

No health problems with Rush I don't think, just not a lot of reason for him to be there. They've got the wings they drafted and a couple points they want to give lots of minutes to see what they've got I assume. We already know what he is.

It's probably just me, but every time Hayward gets called "Haywood" I cringe a bit. Little things like that bother me, I mean the guy's name's right there on his shirt.
