    I will have to say this too, yes Kai did ran out of gas but I think the other coach also outcoached coach Rob, or at least outprepared. They knew who to stop and they did that by wearing out Kai by making him exert a lot of effort just to get those passes in the low block by doubling on him even before he gets the pass. What I don't get is how they (latams) were able to get away with those off the ball double teams. Somebody has to be open but TSF could not capitalize

    Well, it is easy to scout tsf.

    Stop kai, and you stop whole tsf. Just like 2007 cavs, stop lebron, you stop cavs.

    Kai being the main focus of defense shows how great a player he is

    LATAM doubled on kai even before he gets the pass then sends a third defender to swipe the ball the moment he receives the ball. The help defense didn't wait for Kai to receive the ball because they've scouted that kai passes the ball well once he sees a help defender coming. It didn't just limit kai's touches, it also wore out Kai. Someone should be open everytime LATAM doubles off the ball but TSF didn't find those holes

    Yes. They dont have misdirection plays.

    Kai's teammates did not move off the ball. Thus, it limits Kai's performance.

    Anyway, coach rob said tsf will no longer play this season. Wonder where will Kai go now.

    Nike hoops summit is getting near. Hope Kai gets an invite. Maybe they just waiting for Kai's tournament to finish.

    April 15 deadline of college signing. Though i think Kai will skip.

    This begs the question whre will Kai train and play. Maybe Euroleague or G league while training

    I think April 15 is the start of the regular signing period and it ends on May 20th this year. So from what I understand that will be the hard deadline; he could sign any day between those two dates.

    I think Kai just want to take some needed rest after that grueling training in the US for several months now. He has to recharge his batteries. He deserves such rest.

    I say Kai should focus himself away from basketball for the meantime & just enjoy his life as a teenager. Its just proper that Kai rewards himself after such a successful stint in the US.
    "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    Hope Kai will not be influenced by pba and uaap here.

    These are my hopes

    1. He plays professional in europe. They said that the orig plan is train in us, and play in europe.
    2. Hope he can train also while playing pro.
    3. He plays for Gilas national team.
    4. Hope he will not apply for pba draft where the team will get his rights when he is finish in nba.
    5. It is unliiely now that he will play for nike hoops summit. He needs to play pro for competition.

    So, we are right that Kai just uses unofficial visits in is ncaa schools for media hype. Well, it does good cause espn,rivals, and 247 was able to know him cause of unofficial visits

    Kai should develop his chest and arm muscles to be more effective on defense.
