you are aware that Brown is known for his tough training camps right? This isn't unusual <_<

Why do people act surprised?

I think its because vets like Nash, Metta, and Antawn don't need a tough training camp like the one he seems to be implementing. A 3 hour practice could do more harm than good for these veterans. Now if he wants to run the wheels off of the youngsters that'd be a different story but its not good to hear that Nash participated in a 3 hour practice before tonights game.

Sorry I don't remember questioning CDR's defensive skill but rather answering the poster that said that Ebanks was incapable of defending the rim ;)

it didn't Say 3 hour scrimmage it said 3 hour practice and we don't know how much of it was a scrimmage.

on the Bright side, Nash is used to working as hard in the gym it's how he plays at a high level for so long, Kobe didn't practice today, and MWP LOVES working that hard in the gym. So really the only veteran that could complain about it is Jamison and his conditioning needs to get back on par anyway so it will help him get in basketball conditioning which we'll need.

So it's not as "terrible" as people love to freak out.

That block Ebanks had was luck. Ebanks wishes he could make a block without luck like CDR.

I was talking about this game dumb dumb. Ebanks tried two possessions after CDR did it and failed miserably, instead giving up a 3PT play.

Does anyone think that Ebanks would take CDR one-on-one? Please be honest.

Of course not, CDR is more experienced and a better scorer that's better at creating shots for himself.

That said, Ebanks has made improvements in his game and is far from a scrub. In fact him and CDR were the best players off the bench last night. So them challenging each other could be the best thing that's happening for either of them. CDR gets to show out so he can make the team, Ebanks gets to improve his game and be pushed to get better. It's working out well for them BOTH.
