Travis Leslie Interview

upon the occasion of his return to the NBA from his short stint with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League.

The Clippers obviously believed that Travis would benefit from practicing with the team as much as any improvement in his game from playing against D-League competition. It was good to hear Leslie's take on the experience.

That was Quick

After just four games down in the D-League, Travis Leslie has been recalled by the Clippers. Good for him.

The Clippers are playing the Celtics right now. The Clippers could use some help. They look a little stagnant in the half-court offense.

Congrats, Travis.

Gerald Green's Stunning Hops

Well, I guess if I just had to find a UGA connection I would note that Sundiata Gaines was in the frame.

But the real reason I'm posting this video is because of the sheer absurdity of Gerald Green's play. I don't think I've ever seen a guy catch an alley-oop and pretty much put his entire head over the rim. That's an NBA slam dunk competition winning dunk done going full speed during an actual game.


Leslie Adjusting to D-League

Had 19 points on 9 of 12 shooting from the field, 1 of 1 from the free throw line. Also notched 2 rebounds and an assist in 25 minutes.

His team, the Bakersfield Jam, beat the Idaho Stampede Saturday night.

In 4 games so far, Leslie is shooting 56 percent, and averaging 13 points and 4 boards in 21 minutes per night.

"Wow, what a great player!"

Plenty of compliments for Kenny Gaines after Whitefield marched through the tournament on their way to the championship. The coach for Athens Christian was impressed. As the attached article describes, Gaines had 24 points and 8 rebounds, scoring on 4 dunks and going 8 for 8 from the line. He pretty much did it all.
