As the week of training camp wraps up I am going through all the interviews for comments that might have been left on the cutting room floor.
CORBIN ON FOYE
“He is a shooter, he is a great spot up shooter, we can the ball in his hands some to make plays, but if he has his feet spot spotting up in the corner or behind the three point line we feel very good him making shots.”
CORBIN ON MO WILLIAMS
“He is a leader he is an attacker, he is a great communicator with the guys on the floor in a good way, they seem to listen and follow what he is saying. His speed, the way he can generates and navigate guys on the floor, he sees things early, he advances the ball, and then makes a play off that and gives us more versatility then we have had.
CORBIN ON HOW MO WILLIAMS IS EVOLVED
His confidence his shooting is better, he is a pretty dead eye three point shooter, he is a better one on one attacker then he was then, he has a good feel when to go and when to pull back, when to get other guys involved and who to go to at the time.
CORBIN ON KANTER
He is 20 years old and he missed a whole year at Kentucky, he had a lockout year so he missed the summer and that summer went to December – he came in and guys are bigger faster stronger and he is trying to think his way through it. Now he knows what to expect, he had a time frame to be ready.
Kanter is a young guy trying to figure out his body and over the next few years he may go through stretches where he is a little heavier where is a little smaller.
He needs to learn if it is not a time to where he needs to create contact just catch and finish and not seek out contact when it is not necessary.
CORBIN ON MARVIN WILLIAMS
the shot looks good, he is confident shooter, he knows how to get his feet under him and get his base down so when he comes off the driblle or comes off the down screen he is facing, he has turned quick and get his balance and his release looks really good. He is a good spot up shooter and I think we can get him better off the dribble some too.
He can handle the ball, you can put the ball in his hand, you can put him in pick and roll occasionally, you can put the ball in his hand early and be able to create and get to the basket some, he should be able to get to the free throw line some by posting guys up especially smaller 3
CORBIN ON MILLSAP AS A THREE
“There may be times when we can use him as three man he is a 4 man and he likes playing 4 at times we have an advantage to go big and put him at the three spot we will use that times to play him at three but we don’t want to put him at a disadvantage at the three spot and get him in foul trouble.”
CORBIN ON DIFFERENT STYLE TEAM
What fans will notice different about the team – our size – we can be big with Gordon playing the 2, the way we can move with this size is going to be a nice change.
