Okay so what does all the have to do with anything? except prove I'm beyond ready for some kind of meaningful sport to start back up, I'm honestly getting pumped for the U.S. Open, (tennis not golf, I'm not that desperate). Well I guess it gives some context to the kinds of personnel decisions that are made in the NBA every year that ultimately decide the fate of former Ducks basketball players, which is supposedly the point of this blog., though be warned I'm going to report on the current team too because I have to.

I found some video of both guys. There's nothing really impressive from Dunigan here but it's good to get a look at him. Humphrey's video has some spice to it, I see a little bit of Nick Young in his style.

Here's some really nice behind the scenes footage of what a NBA pre-draft workout is like. And it just so happens to be our man Aaron Brooks as the star of the show.
Summer League doesn't mean much but who cares? A.B. is ripping it up nonetheless. Here's the highlights from the July 12, 2007 game against the Dallas Mavericks' summer league squad.

The Rockets games Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will all be broadcast on nbatv, so there should be some video from one of the games for me to post. We'll see.

Apparently while T.P. is off playing with the U-19 USA National Team, Mitch Platt and Ray Schafer are going to be hoopin' for Jesus. They both will be playing for Athletes in Action, a "faith based" basketball squad that tours the world looking to spread the good word. According to the AIA’s website their mission is to “bring Jesus Christ and His message of victory into the hearts, homes, and communities of millions around the world...and to share one message: Life’s greatest victory is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.”
For some reason Sting Ray never struck me as a man of faith. Those wacky shaved lines in his hair and that monster truck he drives just didn't seem humble enough, although that ridiculous spin move to reverse lay up that he insists on doing every time he gets in the game could easily be called a "prayer" of a shot if he didn't make at least one a game.

I'm going to work on updating the bios and adding new ones as best I can and I would encourage anyone else how has something to add to do the same.
