    I appreciate you sharing this video with us. Getting access to information on the team is the main reason I read this blog.

    Seriously? It’s quite common for the average person in Europe to speak multiple languages. Not sure how many Killian knows, but English didn’t seem like any issue for him when he arrived. Ronny Turiaf came in knowing 4 or 5 languages.

    Both Ballo and Tillie are listed at 6'10" but in that video there are a couple of scenes with the two of them and Ballo looks to be a good 2 to 3 inches taller and I'm not counting the hair.

    Why was the interviewer so far away from them? It was awkward.

    I've never viewed Killian as 6'10", tall, long, rangy, yet not 6'10".

    I met and spoke briefly to most of the team last year in Omaha, following the Creighton game. The only players who walked past & didnt stop to meet n greet were Ayayi & Petrusev, both had their hoodies pulled up & flying solo,.focused on leaving.

    When standing right next to the players, or watching them stand next to each other, a few heights/sizes surprise you.

    At one point, Rui and Killian (obviously close friends), were standing together and chatting to the group.

    They were the exact same height in tennis shoes, as Killian looked taller/leaner on the court yet not at all in person. Rui's size surprised me and my wife as well. Easily 6'8"+

    Clarke seemed shorter than both but his presence seemed "bigger".

    Norvell was the most surprising to me of any player, as he literally towered over Perkins, and seemed every bit of 6'5", if not taller. Seemed eye to eye with Kispert. Zach was most shocking, and also took time to meet everyone, shake hands, take pics, etc.

    Listed heights are interesting, some want to be listed taller while others shorter. There was a recent article stating how Kevin Durant wanted to be listed 1 or 2" below his actual height.

    I'm not certain Killian is actually 6'10", which would out him 1" shorter than Filip, who looks 3" taller than him. Hard to accurately know.

    I don't think Perkins was ever 6'3" or 6'4" as he said one time, because that would have made Norvell 6'7"+.

    Sheesh Malastein, take it easy. Definitely not a bad question.
