It's amazing to me how these guys focus and concentrate in a gym that busy. I might need horse blinders and ear plugs to get through a few hours of that. When I see some gyms with 2,3 or 4 goups playing different games all at once with other people standing around yelling out things and other small groups standing around talking in the peripherals, the movement and sounds from the other groups playing, I would be on senses overload. Even a loaded NBA stadium with a crowd going wild wouldn't be as difficult as concentrating in one of these loaded up practice gyms.
These are my opinions.

Of course, lack of info. Doesn't say who all went. Just that "many" did. They aren't all bonding. Let us know who all went so we can know which guys don't fit into Towns little culture club.
These are my opinions.

A text post on Reddit from yesterday said "Saunders, Culver, Nowell, and maybe Layman" were on a flight to the Bahamas.

Same post is referring to a Q/A of Jon Krawczynski / The Athletic from Friday

Treveon and Naz are also there. Okogie and Dieng are both with their national teams, only real question marks are Teague and Wallace.

Is Graham in the bottom right picture of that tweet above? Initially I thought it was Wallace.

Lavine is also in the bahamas. I would not be surprised if kat, wiggs, and lavine scheduled some time to hang out.

What’s the most y’all would give up to bring LaVine back?

Teague, Okogie and 2020 top 5 protected 1st?

Should start an annual offseason full team full summer training camp in Nassau. Their new identity will be as league pirates.
These are my opinions.

I do admit a starting line-up of Lavine, Culver, Wiggins, Covington, and Towns does sound viscous, especially if we can get everybody to lock in defensively. Their athleticism could cause havoc if used with the right attitude and approach.

I told my cousin when they traded Lavine for Butler, that they had traded the wrong one. They let the Lavine injury spook them. Lavine has always been a gym-rat and he 's a go at you attitude that Wiggin's lacks.

I like LaVine’s work ethic, but he was only efficient offensively for about six weeks in his career (the first six weeks last year) and he is worse than bad defensively. He tries hard, but he has horrible instincts that he can’t seem to fix.

At $19.5 mil a year, for the next two years, I don’t think I’d even offer Teague, Okogie, and a protected 1st.

I'll take a hurricane in Nassau any day of the week over the snoozefest here. - edit. I may have been just a tad ignorant about what a hurricane can do to the Bahamas. I wonder how Nassau fared after seeing video of some of the other islands.
These are my opinions.
