Couple of quick items this morning:
If you’re dying for some basketball content, here’s a good thread from @MGAnalytics1818 on Twitter breaking down Manny Bates’ game. Plenty of video is included as well.
Bates can mitigate defensive errors from his team by erasing shots at the rim. His weak side rim protection is impeccable. Showcasing great patience, Bates waits for his opponent to release the shot before jumping. He’s able to swat the ball at the apex with ease. pic.twitter.com/xhfszQ2cgB— M&G Analytics (@MGAnalytics1818) July 19, 2020
Excited to see what Manny can do this season, whenever we’re able to get around to this season.
Also, The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman released his annual college football freaks list, which this year includes Wolfpack defensive tackle Alim McNeill.
