Our Summer roster series is now complete! If you need a refresher on our coverage, we have already:
- Discussed the off-season efforts of both Brandon Jennings (Podcast # 4) and Ersan Ilyasova (Podcast # 3)
- Provided updates on Andrew Bogut, Keyon Dooling, Stephen Jackson, Jon Brockman, and Jon Leuer (Podcast # 6).
- Debated the relative importance of Luc Mbah a Moute, Shaun Livingston, and Larry Sanders (Podcast # 7).
- Analyzed the potential implications of the off-season basketball activities of Andrew Bogut, Carlos Delfino, and Beno Udrih (Podcast # 8).
In this episode, Frank Madden and Steve von Horn finish the roster tour with updates on first-round pick Tobias Harris and the polarizing off-season signing from last year, Drew Gooden. You can get a quick rundown of all the topics in episode nine, along with the audio links, after the jump.
In this episode, we speak on the following topics:
- The training habits and maturity of Tobias Harris--and how these may have affected his draft workout results and helped to determine his ultimate landing place with the Bucks. We also reference the pro-style workouts he's been doing since high school, an example of which you can see below:
- Articulation of the Drew Gooden conundrum: is he actually a good player to have on the Bucks? Will he ever be worth the five year, $32 million mid-level exception contract he signed last summer? And is any play as representative of the brilliance / lunacy of Gooden than his penchant for throwing himself passes off the backboard?
- Some tongue-in-cheek speculation on Drew's recreational interests, where we ponder the eternal question: is it possible to have too many jetskis?
