  1. What happened to Valdes?

  2. Aaron is good. Practices and workouts are a lot more intense it seems and the guys are also helping with the clinic this week. They all have a lot on their plate this summer. We are all looking forward to the upcoming season.

  3. Kyle Pape lighting it up.

  4. Thank you for the update TriveVx4!! It is good to hear that Aaron is good and the team is working hard. I just hope the team is not working too hard right now and they don’t wear themselves out. Summer should be a time for work and fun and I was hoping the guys would show up and get some bragging rights in the Summer league playoffs.

  5. TribeVx4:

    hope Aaron stays healthy, not too many big bodies this year. I guess Aaron, Canda, Fleming, Bobbitt, will have to hit the boards for rebounds.
    This year’s team tons of guards. I counted at least 9 possibly 10..

  6. I’m glad to hear that the summer workouts are very challenging. I think people are getting too hung up on height within the roster. I’m not saying we are VCU but they started a 6’6″ center last year. My point is that good coaches will be creative and will allow us to still be successful regardless of height on the roster. We do have two 6’11” players and a 6’8″ player so although thin we still have some size. I’d rather have a team of “players” then a roster of height that just looks good on paper.
