    They are still young men who just left adolescence. Training can only take you so far - genetics combined with natural growth and development plays a major factor.

    I look at myself in high school compared to high school and very, very early university. It took all I could do to dunk off two feet - no step. Now I'm 14/15 years older and not nearly in game shape as I was at that time but I can dunk off two feet with no step easier now than I ever could then. If only I could play 40 minutes at a high level..... I guess that is the trade off, lol.
    You just dated yourself. Teehee~

    Yeah, the early 30's have been brutal for phyiscal conditioning and ability - adding a child has not helped.

    How tall are you? You can dunk? Can we draft you to play center?

    Kanter has meetings/interviews/workouts scheduled with four teams. He will begin by meeting with the Utah Jazz on Friday in Chicago. He will then meet with the Toronto Raptors in Chicago on June 6. The very next day, on June 7, Kanter will travel to Cleveland to meet with the Cavaliers. Finally, on June 16, he will travel to Minnesota to meet with the Timberwolves.

    A workout has not yet been set up with the Washington Wizards, who draft below all of those teams at No. 6, but it is not out of the question. After all, Kanter did state that he would prefer to play for the Wizards if he had a choice. However, he would also prefer to be drafted as high as possible - as long as it is the right fit - and the Timberwolves, Jazz, Cavaliers and Raptors are all drafting before the Wizards (unless of course there is a trade).

    I'm in the Chuck Hayes or +1 inch side of things. My arms are nearly as long. I'll play for the vet minimum if need be.

    I've gotten pretty good at reacting to dunks. It's all in the initial watching posture, you just wait till the ball gets stuffed, and than you get up and pump your fist and say things like "Bam", "Yah", "All day...", you can even use the opponents name in an ownage context. Just lots of ways to do it man, when you get good.
