Things are slow...real slow.
So slow in fact that I've reverted to NBA Summer League games with the wonderful invention that is NBA TV. Seriously, even if you're not an NBA fan, the quality of broadcasters and analysis is second to none.
Last night, Chris Webber basically went head-to-head with the Minnesota Timberwolves' GM during a broadcast for picking up Darko Milicic. C-Dub really didn't appreciate being even mildly compared to Darko. At all. I've also learned that John Wall can really play and Hasheem Thabeet still can't.
In the nightcap of last night's games, I noticed some fellow by the name of Biggs on the Bulls roster. A closer look revealed that it was in fact Pitt's very own power forward, Tyrell Biggs. Tyrell looked oh so fashionable in his cotton tank top with shorts hiked up. Fortunately for him, he's not the only player that wears those awful practice-type unis. I can understand if that's what was worn before the games were ever televised, but if the league is spotlighting them on NBA TV (and even selling an online package where you can watch the games on your computer), they might want to outfit their players in apparel that doesn't look like it was from a $.99 bin at Gabriel's.
Anyway, I believe Biggs was a late addition to the team. I didn't see him on their initial roster. But he was a long-shot to even get a sniff at the team and averaging only 1.5 ppg and 1.5 rpg through two games
getting 18 minutes a game likely won't help. Still, good to see him in a camp. There are some guys in the summer leagues pushing 30, so it's not too late for him to ever get into the league by any stretch.
