Just hands, no toes? <ducks>
Yeah, FWIW, I agree that it seemed like overreaction here about the no shot. His coach blasted him when it was fresh in his head, and I expect he'll learn from the experience.

penetration from repeated drives. With this guy, you ain't seen nothing
yet. From his defense to the fast break, he could re-write the book on
