one of the things I have enjoyed over the last week is watching all the game footage of the recently departed Bill Russell
so many of his blocks were done with an effort to keep the ball IN Play so that his teammates could recover the block.

so many of the bigs today just want to block (swat) the ball out of bounds and allow the opponent another possession -

this is a lost art and I hope MR and our "bigs" coach will work on drills that encourage the bigs to try and keep their SWATS in bounds and allow our ARMY to recover

each additional possession works to our favor

go Rams and RIP Bill Russell "6"
