Hey Zags fans,

I had a chance to watch Austin playing with Kobe and some other college players during finale of the Kobe camp at LMU. Austin looks like he bulked up a bit but is still very skinny. He had some very nice dunks which made all the kids really excited. A one handed slam off the glass was one of the highlights of the night. He also had some long range trey bombs. Other players in the game: Kobe Carl, Trevor Ariza, James Hardin, Malcom Thomas, Demar Derozan( was amazing), some Cal State Fullerton and UC Irvine players.

Thanks, IL. I doubt Daye fully develops until he's 25 or 26 y/o.

Thanks for the analysis. That is Great News on the "bit of bulk" Austin added. I don't think that most of us here, well the realistic ones anyway, expect Austin to ever add a ton of weight, but the fact that he was noticeably bulkier than last year is a good sign that he took good strides this summer.

Thanks for the report, Lions.

Derozan might be the best pure athlete in college basketball next season. He's one and done.

Here is a slide show from the event, most of the pictures are centered around the Lakers in attendance, but Daye is in a few. Looks like he was playing with the big boys during the tourney, out there showing help defense against Kobe
