Default Renaldo Balkman Looks Great in Knick Debut!

I would go as far as saying he was the best player on the court in the first half.

The game gave a lot of hope for the future. The youngsters all looked good.

(I wrote a full article about it at www.dwolin.blogspot.com, please check it out!)

Two things:
1. It'd be nice to see some stats.

2. " Higher Level Basketball Thinking" ould be a cool username. Well, not really. But I'd have used it.

Personally, I don't look at stats for summer league games. They never tell the full story... but I will try to find some for you, Mr. Green.

HLBT would be a cool username, almost as cool as Real Men Wear Green. It's also a good blog name

Defense is half the game and can be poorly represented on a stat sheet, but that doesn't mean stats are meaningless. Balkman is being boosted up as a hustle guy...ok, then I just want to know how many rebounds, steals, blocks, lay-ups his hustle is getting him. And if he was the best player on the floor then I want to know what he scored, what opponents scored, all of that stuff. More information is always a good thing.

I admit that I haven't seen him a lot, but judging from what I heard, I think at best he has a shot at being like Greg Minor who played for the Celtics a few years ago. Above average athleticism, good upper body strength and conditioning, zero offensive skills.

I never said stats were meaningless... but idt those comments were directed towards me. The stats from yesterday's game are at http://www.vegassummerleague.com/box_score.cfm?game=55

Human error - those were the general thoughts on Balkman... though not totally accurate. He actually does have a pretty nice offensive game - he can handle, moves very well without the ball, has a nice foul shot. He could also use some more upper body strength. The hustle comes as advertised, though.
