Really enjoyed this video as it was nice to see the players during the long off-season.

-Man, Harden just dominated play and held court while not even exerting 50%. Was great to have Ali go against him, hopefully he will realize how hard he has to work and how he needs to play SMART. Several times Harden had no problem stripping the ball from Ali on drives, Ali has to be stronger/more protective with the ball.
-Nice to see Tyger looking to pick up early on D, even during a pick-up game
-Cody Riley had a few nice moves/finishes. Would like to see him hustle a little more. I believe he will be a real important piece this year.
-Jules Bernard looked pretty good, real solid
-Others are saying Hands looked good, but I didn't notice him until about halfway through (must be the hair). When he drives and shoots jumpers inside the 3pt line or gets to the key I think he is extremely effective. When he "floats" at the three point line and doesn't attack, that is a negative.
-Chris Smith, man this guy seems like he could be something but just can't put it all together thus far. Has trouble simply driving to the hoop or dribbling into a pick and roll scenario. Twice got stripped just trying to put the ball on the ground
-Must have been fun for Ike Hamilton to play with Harden, got a ton of easy shots and finishes
-Thanks to those that confirmed that was Kyman. Great for him to run in this. Made a nice 3, we need shooters.
