    i think we’re gonna really like DA. i read some comments that were critical of the little shimmy he does when he shoots FT’s, but i like it. this team needs some swagger, it needs some intensity. another dude like TB, sans the whining after every foul. because last year’s team was devoid of that type of personality. it was chock full of soft players who pretty much just gave up on multiple games. that was by far the most disappointing aspect of last season.

    but when he is done with his shimmy he appears to lean as he starts his shooting motion. but hey, if he’s better than 80%….

    Those that are critical of DA need to be reminded that episodes of Hee Haw are reruns, not live.

    Juwan shimmied at the FT line, too, and I didn’t hear too much griping about his performance this year. If he can play and back up the swagger, let’s have it! Bring some of the confidence and self-assuredness back to Assembly Hall and let’s get back to our rightful spot at the top of the Big Ten and in the tourney. I think Damezi will be a great piece to help us do this.

    blues, despair, and agony on me

    i haven’t noticed a morgan shimmy. but he’s a lousy free throw shooter so that’s not helping your argument. besides, i don’t believe anderson’s shimmy has anything to do with swagger

    Thomas Bryant did that… Yeah a little attitude when he dunked on somebody’s head. I hate to see that when it’s opposing team that does it. To be honest, I don’t mind it if one of our guys does it. It’s been a long road…. And we need to dunk on some people’s heads. For once.. lol
