left to right, charlie "5 dimes makes a dollar" moore, jabari "nba but not a yoga prospect" bird, roman "the fast & furious" davis, sam "the baddest raider of them all" singer, roger "where's home?" moute a bidias, stephen "knock you on your azz" domingo & ivan "diamonds are forever" rabb

there's beauty in the struggle

jabari's journey has been a story of heartbreaking lows & high flying pinnacles of success

jb arrived at cal as a heralded mcdonalds high school all american but i remember sitting behind the team bench during his freshman year at the absymal road loss at the freezing azz santa barbara thunderdome & hearing coach montomgery quietely tell a disconsolate jabari that he couldn't play him because of his defensive lapses, in those days the skinny bird man stood straight up like a suit trying to get a cab in downtown san francisco & then would try to tomahawk swipe/block the shot from behind after repeatedly getting burned off the dribble...the bird man put a towel over his head & was crying

then bird played lights out during cal's nit last second loss in dallas to the smu mustangs, draining shots from all over the court...he might've thought about turning pro then but his moms tonya was having none of that ****, her son was gonna earn a degree from the #1 ranked university in the world under her watch

his sophmore year started with the magical victory on the biggest stage on earth madison square garden as jabari was unstoppable during cal's program changing victory over the hometown nyc crowd supporting their syracuse orangemen...but then the injuries came on & off during the rest of that season & continued during a disappointing junior year which ended with the no go back spasms at the ncca tournament in spokane

but here's the deal, jabari never complained, he didn't become bitter & view himself as a victim because his career was not going as expected, he just humbly worked harder...the bird man has always had a certain wisdom about him, he knows that life is not linear & that's there beauty in the struggle

so this past offseason he worked out every ******* day without exception with young ivee & together they made great strides until ivan got mono (did i mention that life is not linear?)

and now jabari got a chieseled nba body thx to his relentless work with coach nic...nba scouts have told me during the early pregame warmups that their biggest question re: jb is his motor, does he have the non stop motor to succeed in the brutally predatory league that abuses & discards the weak?...his powerful & aerodynamic crashing of the boards from the weakside tonite reflects his self awakening as a bird of prey as does his physical lockdown chasing of shooters on d & competing/fighting for 50/50 loose balls/rebounds

jabari's most complete game as a california golden bear tonite with 25 points on an efficient 10 of 16 field goals & 4 of 7 3 pointers along with 5 boards, 2 assists, a block & only 1 turnover is the culmination of that perseverance & it's only the begining of the bird man's flight to the starz with his loving parents & sister, curvy brunette yoga girlfriend kelli, supportive teammates & coaching staff with him on this journey

bird knows there's no such thing as a life better than yourz, you gotta love yourz...let's do this, jabari

let it fly#

the king physically dominated with 11 boards in only 15 minutes of playing time, that's right 11 rebounds in only 900 seconds, that's amazing

funny moment late in the game when okoroh grabbed a defensive board & shook off the 3 mustangs literally hanging on him, them haters on his body, shake 'em off...the king then ran back upcourt with a sly grin, it's fun being the ******* king

Agreed, and hopefully it is a breakthrough for Domingo for the rest of the year. He always gives his all, just needs a confidence boost, especially shooting the ball. He can really help the team, if his confidence and rhythm are good.

ucla bruins (12-0) continued to play mediocre d (46.8% on field goals allowed) but got enough offensive firepower to crack open 86-73 the ohio state buckeyes

arizona wildcats (10-2) let a huge lead slip away & barely scratched by 67-63 the texas a&m aggies...the cats were 20% (3 of 15) on 3 pointers, the bears gotta gameplan to keep lauri markkanen from going off behind the 3 point line but other than him the rest of the team wants to attack the basket on drives & offensive putbacks, arizona's strength this season is not shooting

the corrupt oregon ducks basketball organization (10-2) paddled by 83-63 the down of their luck/fallen on hard times unlv rebels...chris boucher dnp & set on the benches with crutches & a boot on his right foot...if bad things truly happen to bad people, criminal dana alman is ******

usc trojans knocked up 86.4% of free throws (19 of 22) in barely wrapping up 82-77 the mediocre troy trojans in las vegas, it is more enjoyable having hot lava poured on your body than listening to the australian bee gees perform at half time

colorado buffaloes (8-3) +13 on the boards in taming 81-71 the fort hays tigers in boulder

stop the resume printing machine at the kinkos in pullman, the washington state cougars (6-5) bucked 69-68 the santa clara broncos despite my former neighbor (beofre the family moved from north scottsdale to westlake village) matt hauser knocking down 17 points

emergin kyle kouzma put up his 6th double double of the season with 18 points & 15 rebounds as the utah utes (7-2) continued their preseason cupcake schedule with a 92-60 huey newton beatdown of the prairie view a&m black panthers

arizona state sun devils (6-5) got pole danced 81-70 by the visiting new mexico state aggies in tempe

the #13 ranked virginia cavaliers (9-1) court martialed 79-39 the robert morris colonials in holding them in the brigade to 23.9% on field goals (11 of 46) & 26.7% on 3 pointers (4 of 15)...the cavs are a guards/perimeter team, the bears gotta take advantage of their size inside in the post/paint during this upcoming wednesday's epic battle at the 7:00 pm battle at the barricade, are you gonna represent your california golden bears?

seton hall pirates (9-2) looted 81-68 the delaware hens, pretty sure whose gonna win that battle when the mascots square off in the ring....rrrrrrr

south dakota jackrabbits (6-7) quickly escaped 88-84 the murray state racers

louisiana tech bulldogs (7-4) took a bite 89-55 out of the grambling state tigers despite getting out drummed at halftime by the band

southeastern lousiana tech lions (6-5) got the run around 78-56 by the toledo racers

uc davis aggies (6-6) agricultrued 87-64 some random named college called the william jessup warriors which might be an automotive tech school or something

what up, have you put up 1000+ shots this morning?...what the **** are you waiting for?...you got no excuses, finals are over

what's your 30 days 100% basketball focused self improvement plan?...sorry, building the credentials to beat t-wall in video games don't count, don't be a dumb azz

Shocky1;842778531 said:




alan crabbe (signed an almost $75 million dollars 4 year contract with the portland trailblazers this offseason), trevin knell (moms wakes him up daily at 5:00 am so he can put up at least 500, sometimes 1000 shots every single day in becoming an elite shooter) & jemarl baker (arguably the best high school shooter in the nation but who knows for sure because he don't post any stats on his twitter) understand steph's simple message re: the relentless work ethic that is required to become a world class pure shooter & become minted

how does jabari "grandpa" bird put up shots?...before every practice the bird man knocks down 20 shots from each of his designated 7 shooting spots behind the college 3 point line...then after practice jb knocks down 20 shots from each of those 7 spots again behind the perimeter...that's 280 made shots which usually requires at least 400-500 shots

sure hope dontae, roman & juhwan make the commitment to be off to the races too...let's do this

crooked azz shooting is not a fate, it's a decision

bc, i went over to the student section behind the south basket at halftime & talked with a bunch of the guys, they're in town to see their boy charlie & play a little basketball too...asked them what they like most about the trip so far & they all laughed & told me the weather without a doubt...they told me chicago is freezing azz right now, brrrrrrr

2018 ayo dosunmu went off for 51 points recently & is considered chicago's top player right now, he's being coached up by the legendary true student athlete mentor nick irvin

the fire left in the 2nd half in order to get over to merritt college to play in the oakland classic & burn down the very talented moreau catholic mariners (led by kyree walker & damari milstead) 92-79

bobby "off to the races" hurley's top rated recruit thus far true freshman sam cunliffe is gonna transfer, that was quick

i attended a major sun angels donor greet & meet after hurley was hired in tempe to turn around the program, he told the asu audience that he was gonna build a duke like program with true student athletes with academic ambition...that hasn't happened as bobby's recruited a bunch of nomadic high school, junior college & transfer guys with 2.5 gpas & social issues

but kinda like ira lee, cunliffe transferred high school multiple times (that's a major red flag in evaluating prospects) in the seattle area & now after averaging 9.5 ppg in 25.4 mpg sam is gonna depart from the #1 ranked school in the world for producing the most strippers

how's boby hurley handling the disappointment of the top recruit of his era transferring out before the holidays?

not well, bobby got kicked out of his team's 6th loss of the season saturday nite vs the new mexico aggies in tempe after his 2nd technical foul

yeah, coach hurley is building a classy program, alienating all the pac 12 refs is always a good idea, when things aren't going your way blame someone else...check out bobby's ejection last year vs arizona, that shirt gotta go to the cleaners that's for sure

the bears are gonna watch video of last nite's game & start gameplannning for virginia today

and now that finals are over there's a tremendous 30 day opportunity for all the guys to 100% commit to focusing on basketball, every player should design a personal detailed daily gameplan re: putting up 1000+ shots/passing drills a day & working on their s&c with coach nic

what's your commitment to the cal basketball program?:axe

Shocky1;842779552 said:



cal's basketball players (particularly jabari "got no yoga practice") should be doing headstands & handstands, finals are over (finally) at the #1 public university in the world...the weight of the ******* world is off your shoulders, your achieving something amazing & truly meaningful in the classrooms of berkeley, something that will open doors for you for the rest of your life

and now you got time to put up at least 1000+ shots a day until instruction begins again on tuesday january 17th, you got a month to 100% focus upon your shooting improvement & strides in the s&c program with coach nic, let's do this...jaylen got minted in the nba with a $12 million+ guarantee contract because of his tireless work ethic in putting up shots when there's nobody around...is the your deal too or are you gonna just work on being the house video game champ?


and yeah if you got a curvy brunette yoga girlfriend that wants to spend time with you, no worries, just make her rebound your practice shots...pretty sure she can wear (or not) underwear & high heels at haas & the gold gym during late night workouts when the world is sleeping...maybe afterwards you can review your shooting analytics or something in the visitor's dugout or the pitcher's mound at evans diamond

Shocky smiling at your analogies! and yes this is a critical timeframe (only remaining period of extended time) to work on needed areas of improvement: passing, shooting, free throws. finishing at the rim and hopefully getting healthy!
I think 5 teams will be a lock, but its less than 50/50 on the 6th team to make the tourney. And the league is tough in the top 7 (Ucla, Arizona, Oregon, SC, Cal, Utah, Colorado) Stanford/Washington will have the occasional upset, but not finish in the upper half. Several key games ahead for the Bears and beating Virginia and Arizona would put us in great shape - even taking 2 of our next 3 would be a positive start to the our RPI/start of conference!

cal's monster class exclusive news update: jemarl baker has not retired from basketball & joined a monestrary in kashmir despite unsubstantiated rumors to the contrary based upon his twitter account not linking any basketball scores/stats

baker scored 24 points in leading his roosevelt mustangs to a 66-55 endangerment of the valor christian eagles (colorado) & scored 20 points in the mustangs 64-51 beeping of the crossroad roadrunners at the tark classic in las vegas

watching him shoot (with his good friend juhwan) at haas late in the afternoon during a football weekend in berkeley this fall, jemarl got a beautifully simple repetitive pure shooting stroke from nba range, he's gonna be en fuego when he arrives in berkeley in the summer of 2017

onetime cal commit/oregon transfer ahmaad rorie is playing well as a sophmore at mid major montana with 15.1 ppg on 42.5% field goals, 36.1% on 3 pointers & 80.6% on free throws along with 3.8 rpg, 2.8 apg & 1.9 tpg

why didn't ahmaad wind up in berkeley?

ahmaad (from lincoln high school in tacoma) made a commitment to coach travis decuire (seattle native) during his sophomore year of high school, the two talked almost every day with td taking on a positive male mentorship role is rorie's life due to the absence of a father figure...ahmaad is very close to his moms rhonetta & was an excellent student in high school with a 3.8 gpa


with permission from the staff (donors can never speak with prospective recruits outside of incidental contact, at that time rorie had already signed a letter of intent with cal), i spoke at length with ahmaad (an avid reader of the cal's monster class thread) while sitting next to him behind the cal bench during the washington game in seattle in the spring of 2014

i was struck at the time how ahmaad's twitter personality (very brash) was quite different than his real personality (reserved & inwardly focused) and that some of his goals seemed quite unrealistic to me at the time...i was also concerned that he left alaska airlines arena almost immediately after the bears high energy victory opting not to visit with the coaches (other than td) & his future teammates...i shared these observations with the prior staff

point guards more than anybody on a basketball team need to be unselfish leaders, guys that command respect & facilitate their teammates...charlie moore, sam singer & brandon chauca all put team goals ahead of their own personal achievements

ahmaad & coach martin never quite got on the same page so rorie signed with dana altman who smoothly fed his ego of nba stardom...of course the criminal's promises turned out to be empty so rorie transferred to play for someone he could trust in td

rorie is not really a point guard, he's kinda like paris austin, a high scoring undersized 2 trapped in a point guard's body...he would've been a good fit ala justin cobbs with cal under coach montgomery or travis decuire as the head coach with the bears then mid tempo pace of play that emphasized half court sets...unlike burners like dominic artis he wasn't a good fit in oregon's frenetic paced offense ...the shame of it all is that ahmaad wasn't mature/sophisticated enough at the time to constructively understand his own skills & the best type of offense to showcase those skills which allowed a slick salesman like altman to sell him a pile of ****

ahmaad rorie truly loves his mom rhonetta & for that i will always root for his future success...he's a good person that will continue to mature under coach decuire's brutally honest but compassionate mentorship
