Combine measuring is underway in Chicago

Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 2.12.07 PM

Today is measuring day at the NBA combine and De’Aaron Fox went with the shirtless approach to his standing reach.

Also, why are they in a ball room?

But on a serious note: it’s a very wise move by Fox to attend the combine when some of the other elite talents — Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, Malik Monk, Jayson Tatum, Dennis Smith — skipped out. Showing up to prove his value, when others aren’t, will go a long way in teams’ eyes and hopefully he will thrive in his shooting workouts to try to dispel some of those concerns with his jumper.

As for the measuring, we’ll know more on how Kentucky’s four guys measured out soon. Hamidou Diallo’s measurements will have a major impact on his draft future.

Stay tuned for those.

      All the white guys in the room who are handling Fox like a piece of meat is creeping me out.

      Yeah this image has strange, historical connotations that make me feel uncomfortable.

    Good grief…stop with the fake guilt….It’s the same white guys who pay to go to NBA games, buy apparel, etc. that will make D. Fox wealthy! Sheesh!

    This isn’t about race…although I guess it could be…but measuring every physical attribute of another human being is just sooooo bizarre. It’s beyond creepy.

      I don’t think the image would look any better with a lily white guy up on the measuring block. Not to mention I find “measurements” to be laughably irrelevant. Either you can play or you can’t.
