    Cream’s system fits Claxton really well, he looks much better than last year. Will be hard to keep him after this year.

    Did Fields get into the UMass game again?

    i thought the same think. Claxton might be the most complete player in the country. hope he can at least take us to the tournament while he's here.

    Claxton will be here for a couple more years. SEC play will slow him down a little but he does look great. Claxton does need to learn how to play back to the basket and maybe a little more weight.

    He needs to add weight just to be considered skinny. I do like our bigs though

    Claxton is a SF, not a big so i don't think he needs to add too much weight. he came in to UGA at 6'9 195 and is now 6'11 215. I'd say he could probably use 10-15 more pounds.

    Sounds about right on the weight, needs to largely be added to the lower body

    don't want to slow him down though... right now he's still got enough quickness to defend guards up top. that's what makes him so versatile

    A basketball player's legs get stronger by training and physically maturing. Size really doesn't matter very much either, Michael Jordan had sticks for legs.

    Agreed. I was at the game and he was getting banged around a good bit. After a lot of the plays, he was grabbing his side or holding his lower back.

    They had a few guys that could have played def tackle or DE with their size.

    yes and he played at about 230 lbs, so the rest of him wasn't matchstick like.
