That also tells me when everyone else is tired, he'll still be tall.

This is a highlight reel.  It shows me a guy who can hustle up and down the court.  He also happens to be 6'11".  That also tells me when everyone else is tired, he'll still be tall.

But I don't want to extrapolate beyond that.

All it shows is him dunking against horrible New Mexico high schools.  Buddha went up against much tougher competition in high school.  He wont be dunking like that next year.

He's athletic, he's tough, he hustles and he is big. Gotta love a player like that.

Amen, to that.  I loved that his dunks were plain old break your fucking arm off if you get in the way dunks.  I don't want fucking style points or pretty jump shots from a 7 footer that misses layups.  I want a man to be imposing his fucking will in the paint.  The fact that he is athletic, agile, and willing to use his body like a normal person and not like some delicate spindly creature says plenty. If he has any brain at all and is willing to be coached, as it seems he apparently is, he will progress and become a great player.  Ralph Tasker established a Bear like standard at Hobbs High and you can bet your ass and borrow another $5 to add to it that he will has already been given a solid foundation there.  As for the completion in the video, what he was doing has nothing to do with the level of competition.  A CUSA player would get just as hurt as a NM schoolboy if he got in the way of that shit.  Physics is physics.  That is why I loved the two-handed dunks.  They make a statement, and you can't block those.  There is a giant of a man holding a little ball in his two hands as he forces it into a metal hoop.  He doesn't let go until it is already done. 

I said at the time that I wanted to know the reasons for the players leaving as it is often a case of them seeing the handwriting on the wall, and it is some other player's.  There may be a lot of truth to the heading of this post.

Good point.  I just tend to forget the quality wins when they are followed by losses to bad teams in mediocre seasons.  It just doesn't help much to beat a cartel team and then lose to a team that ends up with 15 wins on the season.  We need to beat quality teams and not lose games to bad teams.

Oh, you mean to teams like Norfolk State?
