Would have been a high major player if Coach Grant didn't take a chance and knew he was sitting out last year.

I'm hopeful he's got the tools on the defensive end to be able to guard the Grant Golden/Taylor Funk style stretch 4s in the A10

Based on athleticism alone he's going to get decent minutes. Hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble.

If the energy and character he showed on the bench last year while sitting out will translate to his game on the floor - then he could be the surprise of the season.

If he shows only 1/2 of the athleticism that i just saw in the tweet video, the arena is going to be rocking this year and 2017/18 is going to be a distant memory- at least for me.

Could he turn into our Flyers Obi-Wan-Kenobi? (I know, it's horrible, but I couldn't resist; i'm blaming a lame sense of humor and 'ROIDS!)

Looks like an NBA draft pick to me, just give him a #13 jersey with a bunch of letters on he back.

I haven't seen anything regarding his wingspan, but from the clip he appears to have that 7'+ Kostas -ish reach. Loooong arms.

If he's played city ball at Rucker and been around NY guys - this guy will come ready to play and dish it. Glad i got to read this.

Sounds like he might be in the right place, at the right time. And ready to give Cunningham some real support.

The two things I love about this guy is he is smarter than you think. The guy figured out pretty quick he would be better off hanging with the walk-ones at the end of the bench than some of the scholarship players riding the pine. Second, within days of the end of the season he tweeted it was his time and he couldnít wait.

I canít wait to see him on the court next year.

Kostas sat with the walk-ons and tweeted out that great things were coming after the Wichita game.

This is why we can't have nice things. Does every post have to be met with some negative response? How about Obi isn't Kostas and let's not lump them together.

Big Steve, Cooke, Cunningham, etc. all sat with the walk-ons at the end of the bench if it makes you feel better. That's where players who are redshirting typically sit. Where he sat on the bench shouldn't be spun into a positive or a negative.

But he didn't just sit there, did he. He was a huge cheerleader on the bench, always with the biggest smile, always encouraging his teammates etc. If you didn't see that, you weren't paying attention. And that's why it's not fair to use the "Kostas did x" comparison, because Kostas was not the biggest cheerleader, was not always smiling, or encouraging his teammates.

I'm telling you, just put "Antetokounmpo" on the back of his jersey, and he's a 2nd round pick right now even before he averages 5 points per game in the A10.

No weíre not. When has there ever been a red shirt freshman win any award at UD. Coming off a year where we had several guys mentally check out sitting on the same bench next to Obi who didnít even dress? Half of good play in any sport is attitude. In my mind heís already setting a high bar. October canít come soon enough.

I sat in my seat the whole game and I stood up and cheered when appropriate and I was able to do this without staying at a Holiday Inn Express.

Oh yeah this thread is supposed to be about Obi... May the Force be with him.

I agree. Anyone can cheer during a 30 win season.

Players who don't play typically sit at the end of the bench. This is includes walk-ons, redshirts, injured players, etc. This is a far more logical and likely reason why Obi sat with the walk-ons. That's all I was saying. It wasn't that deep.

Got all the end of bench, walk on, cheering,right crowd talk. I am eager to see Obi in action next.

My few glimpses in person were good. He is tall, long and seems quick.

He won the spirit award as a red shirt. That is the ONLY award he could even be nominated for as a red shirt. It's never been awarded to a red shirt so I am already liking what I see and he hasn't taken a shot in uniform yet; that's all I'm saying.

Obi reminds me of the kind of player Syracuse feasts on. Sometimes it looks like they are playing with 6 on the floor at once.

Am I the only one that finds it comical that Bcross seems to be angry at Longtime just because Longtime is happy that Obi had a good attitude during his red-shirt year? The horror!

Not only that but the dude is always engaging with other players in warmups, always in time outs, etc. Not every RS or walk-on acts like him. Obviously, that's no guarantee for future contributions on the court but I, as well, like what I see from an attitude standpoint with him..

Must be the off season. We are more interested in cheering than playing.

Red V. Blue is never coming back.

The only thing I learned from this thread is that "Kostas did X"...somethings you don't want to know.

Or, at the very least, they both screwed Flyer Fans. Yes I'm being funny...almost.

That's good to hear because we are going to have to rely on him some for inside minutes this year. 6'8" and 220 lbs will work in the post for the college game.
