This summer, we had two players out at the Vegas Korean workout who were trying to be among the few chosen at their draft. Sondy has been working out with Korean teams for the better part of the last three months, and I thought he had a real shot from all the feedback I had heard. Reiner also was up for the draft, but I had not heard he would be attending the draft. Instead I heard it from the person I hear all my D-League news from, Scott at www.ridiculousupside.com. Unfortunately, neither were drafted in the draft. I am a bit surprised, too, because there are some real no names on that list. Of the guys I do know, I would certainly take Sondy over guys like Marcus Hubbard and Eric Dawson. No disrespect to them, but Sondy is just better. Not as athletic certainly, but just flat out a better basketball player. For that matter, I think Noel Felix is a nice player, but I think Sondy demonstrated that he was a better player last year. As for Reiner, I think the only center who could possibly have a resume close to his is Chris Alexander. Jared is a skilled, savvy center who I think would kill in that league. Anyways, my two very biased cents, but I think some of those teams missed out. Then again, I have never seen a Korean team play, so what do I know?!
Well, I am off for a fun weekend with family. I may hop on here should something good happen, but otherwise, I will see you guys on Monday.
