Read on Twitter

^^^^This was the guy I saw, who I said kinda looked like Derrick White, that came out of the practice facility when I walked by about a week ago.

The thing is, I didn't recognize either of them. One was like 6’5-ish and looked kinda like Derrick White of the Spurs the other was like 6’1 and kinda looked like Ben Gordon but it wasn’t him. He might've been a trainer or something.

Could've been nothing, could've been a player that got worked out, idk.

Looks reasonable. Probably just a body for training camp of course, but I like the one-piece shot and if he can hit 38% he'll have a spot in the league, especially if he's adequate or better defensively. And with a 6'11" wingspan, he has plenty of length.

Kaiser Gates is that new real estate development just north of Springfield that is being built by Blaupunkt.

It isn't far from the parks and creeks and wildlife of Tremont Waters.

When you have a chance to sign someone who had a college career-high for points per game of 7.2 you have to sign them.

Yes, he is just a nobody signed to sit there and sometimes practice when others are resting. Nothing to see. Would be a lot more fun if the Ainge Cartel would sign someone with potential, instead of someone they saw at a G-League workout.

It doesn't really matter, as Tacko should be spot 15 on the roster.
Markelle has Faults, Lonzo can't Ball, Jayson Tatum is the best player in his draft.

Kemba's best utilized as a bench scorer anyway.

I just went through the thought process:

-- "Kaiser" is German for "emperor".
-- Who would name a kid "emperor"?
-- Actually, a lot of kids are named "Caesar".
-- Actually, "Kaiser" is probably derived from "Caesar".

Oops! :)
