    As usual, no scrimmage action (at least none for us to see) on the first few days, but here's about 5+ minutes of random filming of the squad shooting around after the team's first official practice of the 2016-17 season.



    Sam Dekker spoke after practice as well on whether he viewed this as his real rookie season.



    Also, ICYMI, the weight loss of Patrick Beverley is very evident. He looks good... gives me some hope he could return to form defensively.

    I don't quite understand why they are having Clint slow down his release so much. You almost never see decent shooters stop at the top like that.

    Thanks again Clutch

    I don't really know how good this team will be this year but...i feel like we're going to love watching this guys play together.

    Can't wait for the the start of the season.

    Thanks for posting these Clutch! I cracked up seeing James doing the Nanu FTs. He seems more relaxed and having fun out there with this team.

    Is Montrez growing a flower on top of his head?

    There are no high expectations. This should be a fun team.

    I do have minimum expectations of 8th seed. But I agree with the sentiment that we shouldn't have the heavy expectations of the last two years. Time to have some fun again this season, hopefully.

    Nice to see the underhand free throw in full effect! Capela should at least think about adopting it as well.
