Well I'm certainly in the passing. Maneuver use them. -- dear friend of mine in we communicated through the monthly basis. For the last. Figures. I've done though a lot of things that I could do it is to help maneuver along the way. We were able to. Certainly. Rally to his cause which was to help Sudan. And just try and -- part of the country. It was food drives and a lot of other things like that but it was a wonderful human being and did a great job here. As a basketball player. And I'll miss him dearly. -- -- -- -- Well maneuvered around it really was. It hit a locker room you're careful very loose. It is great sense of humor. He loves to those -- around people play practical jokes and and then on the court he was very competitive once again on the court. Yours not a good practice player because you like to have too much fun at practice. And really that's how we found out that he can shoot the three point shot because she would love to play against the best shooters shoot three point shots for money. You'd get beat every day but the fact busy he could make pretty good percentage for a 76 -- So anyway that's. Where I got the idea word you don't want to let him through -- see what happens in the game. My guys we found out that he could make him and keep his guys at least occupied. -- What's up with the team. Well could not be a fan favorite. Few blocks us. It was a comical guy him you know and and then how many 76. Guys shoot three point shot so. You know you just that kind of -- guy that fans loved him and his teammates love him dearly. And we'll all miss him. -- -- -- But it's are you. You guys are doing radio. You know we'll take it looks like needs. There. Pretty. So. -- as much as the draft. I think civilian version. And it's gonna get a good players section. Very excited players around -- watching on film including a room and Mandelson today. But I think -- It may not be deep what do you. And guys. A lot of good. What do you like about rules and well one thing you know we could use that he does extremely well probably marry anybody any other big men in the country passable. We're looking for. Guys who have been skill and ability and he's one of them -- big man who can -- And young enough yet to continue to do well. Is it hard because that presents Dolphins today plays -- hard to evaluate what you would be in the NBA. I don't know -- -- the Princeton offense gives everybody a chance to handle them on different positions. And you know he's become a pretty good all around player and -- And function away from the basket Wallace and a host of very. Tough can it -- they. Well because most dominant big man -- -- program. You know news. The youngest program all of them and the most talented and the big business and -- Position rumors of them for what time. Do very attractive. Well you know if you're gonna have attitude problems. Good. And I -- and get a rebound it's -- -- to grow that the guy could do some things that are there. Do you guys have both those guys there do you -- at number sixteen neither -- pats. -- -- We do but -- in in you're looking at our team. You know we need some help -- better position. Everything you know. Probably a small bowl. Is another need. -- and we think we have some answers -- run to. Well the position you know work. Okay. Five position we use them. They're bad. Every guy who can blow things like -- like. Now I'm pretty good players Stanford -- the news. Time spent. -- there are players. You know and of that are. You know I haven't really looked. -- top ten guys couldn't tell you much about him. There it was. It's best. It would be a big role player. Well tomorrow morning and pick and roll pick and roll your. You know you have to resort to that more if you don't have an inside presence. Have a guy this Korean side didn't lessen the game moments. -- -- Senators aren't really inside players and so. But you'd like really do -- Score on the block him play put it into. You guys take it. My big. -- actually players. Maybe and so. And -- so we're gonna get a good player or of those guys we'll -- is. We're going to be very happy -- -- your -- I think. Decision and it's you know at this you've had this position. You don't usually you always say I wish I was what do you know one picked. Closer Juan. But I think this year you know and it top six guys that are either program. Respect around here. Yeah Patterson -- because so and so on you get what you get them. Good. But personally. -- -- publicly that. I think you can get as good -- player and then dealing you can't most second. There's some exception to the -- you know guys -- stick around brilliantly cardinals' farm players. You let you get one of those two different deals. Generally speaking. Dealing you know it a lot of second rounder and -- develop. As many young players you have in that second. Internet. You want I don't know element you have to wrestler. You know again -- -- I've watched. All of them numerous time that we watch and we'll have been following. But I have my opinions on -- and I don't red I have seen him personally. Again my opinion most sacred ground -- And you can say that about almost any of them. Seven players. You know they're gonna get better in the future and look for -- -- -- Aaron senior and oh yeah. Very easy decisions that. I don't know here yeah. Know they'll all get better -- your vision. The guys really good you feel -- the way could be he'll develop. -- It's true it's reasonable year but I know -- because. Again we think they're really haven't really good player and I hit.
