Yabby leads the Red Claws to their first playoff series win in their franchise's history.

26 points.

Excellent footwork.  Excellent.  I mean, for a guy who is listed at 260# and might be even bigger?  C'mon, this is sick.  Check out the footwork and left handed layup at :31 or so.  And then he guards the inbound pass.  Tyler Hansbrough is waiting for the guard to get free and he has to pass to another player because Yabby is not letting him get an easy pass.  That's the little stuff that Scal used to do that coaches love.  Force the inbound pass to another player, a slower player, and eat up their shot clock.

At about 1:45 or so Yabby gets the ball in the right corner, 7-year NBA vet Tyler Hansbrough runs out to close out on the 3ptfga and Yabby puts it on the floor and just roars to the rim.

@ 2:40 he blocks Hansbrough at the rim.  Yeah, I know Hansbrough is earthbound but he's a bull who knows how to carve out NBA space for himself for a putback.






I'm also really liking Abdel Nader.  He has point forward potential ala Evan Turner.  Nader was just named D-League Rookie of the Year.  He averaged 21.3ppg, 44.5fg%, 34.5% 3ptfg% (7.1 3pt fga/game!), 6.2rpg.

Abdel Nader.  Listed at 6'8", 225#.  He was listed in 2016 with a 7'1" wingspan.

He (Nader) looks pretty good in these highlight cuts and could possibly help next season although he is likely to be one of four or five rookies fighting for a roster spot.  I doubt that Boston will carry more than three first year players next season as it is time for Stevens to have a better and more experienced bench.

He also plays a spot that is currently pretty crowded on the Cs roster.  Brown, Crowder, Smart, Young, Green, Bradley, etc. with the first round pick likely to be a guard as well.  I will give him Young's roster spot just because Young has still not been able to earn any meaningful minutes in three seasons as a 17th draft pick.

Kdp,

You think Amir AND Kelly will be here, even with Kelly's new contract?

WoW! Canobie Lake Park. Now that takes me way back in time LOL If I remember right they used to have the longest roller coaster ride in the country. Had no idea they were still open. Next time I'm back that way I'll have to stop by.
