    I think we can all count on TB to step up and be the leader of this team and hold them accountable to do what is expected of them to do! Glad we got this kid!!

    Just all great kids. Love attitudes of each. So obvious why TB and JM had no problem stepping up as freshman. JN fits right in. You can tell he’s chomping at the bit. Great to hear he’s 100% go. UNC, better get ready.

    TB has less of an freshman enthusiasm look about him. More controlled and mature demouneur about him now.

    I love the attitude of these young men. I don’t think anybody can seriously have any doubts about team chemistry this year. They all look like they are on the same page again, and that’s awesome.

    I think there is going to be some great competition for the “starting” point guard position, and my bet is on JN. He’s practiced with the team for a year (studying under Yogi — lol). He’s more of a straight PG, and RJ is more of a combo guard. I think those are the more natural position for both of them, and that’s really the only reason for me betting on JN. Oh, I’m sure there will be plenty of times that RJ and JBJ pull PG duty, but the main starter will be JN. Just an opinion.

    His confidence level looks good. I hear he’s a lot more relaxed in his offense also. Better footwork.

    Competition is great for everyone. These guys will be ready to jump on the first team they play after roughing each other up all summer.

    Great video…..I wish there would be more of these over time with all of the players.
    TB looks calm, cool, collected and ready. JM has a playful attitude and doesn’t seem deterred at all ie: his shoulder. First time I have seen an interview with JN….he appears to be a solid member of the team having practiced with them last year. Not like he will have to integrate with the team as most first year players. He looks and sounds ready to play. Bring on the new guys and lets roll.

    I think, unlike last year.. This team, will begin this year, with a red-hot intensity that will last the entire season! I think all the guys on our team, are hungry.. with giant chips on their shoulders! These guys want to be great basketball player, first and foremost! You can see the love of the game in their whole disposition, as they speak.. especially TB! I’m so excited about this team! I love IUBB!!!

  • TomJameson

    I think so too. Just no more broken ribs taking a charge … please! lol

    Man, that is an excellent response. Already expecting a 15+ point win.
