Anyone knows what goes on during the open practice? Probably will be getting there around 430. Do the ladies go on first? Do they announce the player. Dont know much about this. I do know I will be eating a lot of popcorn

Wear tennis shoes and a headband they give audience members a chance to run 3 on 3.  Also expect Oprah style give aways check under your seat.

That would be hilarious! I try that tactic when I attend a pro golf tournament. I wear golf shoes and a titlist hat and wait for phil Mickelson to ask me take a shot. It's never happened

What one person calls having an attitude, another person calls firing himself up.  It's a character Nesbitt plays on the court, a la Kevin Garnett.

 

 

-as long as his teammates, coaches, the refs and the folks in Newport News understand then I guess he'll get by with it

Hopefully, Nesbitt’s not a Gordon type scenario. If so, just have someone use Gordon’s journey as an example of what happens where you’re likely to end up when you go on the dreaded ego trip. For right now, let’s just chalk up the attitude to youthful enthusiasm. With guidance from his teammates and staff hopefully this too shall pass. From the videos it appears he has the tools to be very successful here, but so did Cart’are in the early going.

Many years ago one member of the Tip-Off-Club got to sit on the bench. I sat there once and hated it. I was afraid I would yell at the refs and get a T. You just tried to stay out of the way.

I once got the ‘game ball’ at the pre game ceremony from Debbie Yow. After the pictures with her and the Billiken, I turned and dribbled downcourt to take a shot. Those balls are not full of air and i totally embarrassed myself trying to dribble it! I then ran to the basket and had to take two shots to make a layup. 🤪🤪

I remember that.........I was impressed enough by the chutzpa that I didn't even notice the shooting form 

 

Who was it that won the shot for some sort of burger "for life?"  I remember he had to drive the the marketing company in Creve Coeur to pick up coupons from time to time......

My claim to fame was a time out contest. Got to shoot free throws against another gentleman. We both bricked about 5 then they said shoot a layup. I made mine and got the opportunity to shoot a 3. If I made the 3 you won 2 tickets from TWA to anywhere in the continental US. Somehow I made it. Took a trip to South Florida and saw Larry Hughes play South Florida in the sundome. Billiken Roy needs to tell us about his baseball bat spin.

Thanks for the kind thought.

I had it all planned out. Told my son in advance. While Im out there with Yow, she says, ’Someday someone is going to take this ball and take a shot.’ Little did she know it was me right then.

I'm proud to share the same message board as you.

training my 3 mo old for the baby race.  

I'm really bummed because my 10 month old will likely be too old by the time of the race....  (I think it is late in the conference season if I remember correctly.) My wife and I will have to plan better for our second child.

I believe its normally in late January? We'll only be around 7 months, so Vegas will be against us.

It is a glorified practice scrimmage usually.  I have gone to a couple of these and honestly I don't think you learn much about the team for the season play.  It is a nice PR thing for the school/team.
