I saw somewhere it was a few years ago.

Also, Kam's response about putting the spin on the ball for layups was really interesting. His grandfather's hoop didn't have a rim, so when he was a kid, he'd throw the ball on the backboard and look at how it spun off different ways.

Sounds like he is familiar with cracked sidewalks, a real Warrior.

Looks like this was filmed this week. At the 90 second mark, TK throws a dime. He's ready.

Anyone at the practice? I heard from someone that was that TK was a bit ginger with his passes - take it for what it's worth


My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Kolek barely hold up his ice cream cone at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

With my recent muscle injury, I could do some things fine — hammer a string forehand, run, etc. but certain movements — a deep backhand of the Pickleball, etc… would result in excruciating pain. I’m concerned about what we’re gonna see out there from our injured troops, but hoping for the best.

Give Tyler the best meds we’ve got
I gave TK some excellent sinse after open practice, he smiled!

Absolutely hilarious

I would like to thank TyKo, Shaka, and the other "powers that be" for having the discipline to give Kolek the time to heal from his injury.

I'd like to recognize TyKo for seemingly being impervious to rust.

I would like to thank those who either said or implied that Kolek was done for the season.

It’s great to have such valuable information available here.

Am I the only one who thought he looked inhibited by the injury?  He avoided contact so much as to not scrap after loose balls, and passed up several layups that would have required him to twist his torso toward the basket and instead kicked the ball out.  I think he is still hurting and that was a really gutsy performance.

I wasn't watching him that closely, but if that was an inhibited performance that's incredible.

I thought it a couple times on defense but then realized I was looking for it and never really watched Tyler that closely when he didn’t have the ball. Who knows but his output seemed just right.

I didn’t notice anything regarding Kolek.  I did notice Oso seemed to be struggling and one instance where Chase was rubbing at his shoulder after contact.  I think they are both still hurting and trying to gut it out.

The only thing my son and I noticed was that TK passed up some layups that it seemed he could have made. We were seated pretty high up, so I'm not sure how much torso-twisting would have been involved, and we also talked about him also doing that sometimes in other games long before he was injured.

So I don't know what to make of it, especially given the outstanding game he had.

Seriously, 39 pages of Scoop comments on Koleks condition on an injury less than 4 weeks ago. I can't remember a player in the last 2 decades making a bigger impact. Jimmy, Jae, Markus....all made a mark. Certainly after MU in NBA, but Kolek has really captured us.

Wade of course bigger than Kolek so I edited to last  2 decades.

Not sure there would have been 39 pages if Oso had suffered that exact same injury on the same day, with the same "will he or won't he" be able to play mystery. But I'm guessing it would have been pretty close.

We need both of them to be at or very near their best to get where we want this season to go. I'd have been surprised if there weren't this many pages.

It could have been just one page if the Scoop doctors did not take over for the ones who are actually licensed to practice medicine but...I know, I know... this is Scoop.

I thought the same. Though obviously it didn't seem to impede his performance much.
