    It's thin gruel, but if that's all we get in June, I will take it.

    interesting to see him call Gordon a post player, been lots of speculation there.

    My favorite part of the article is that Fletcher wants to be called Fletch.

    He also calls Mills a post player. So I think it's not a term that carries a whole lot of weight.

    There was a lot of talk last summer about him working on stretching his game out to the 3 point line so he could play the 3 at times.

    I asked specifically about gordon when I talked to tad at ptarmigan. He said that gordon would play the 4 or 5, depending on who else was on the court (for CU & opponent)

    I'd love for him to have that in his game. I doubt he'll play any 3, but there's nothing wrong with having a 6'8" 240 power forward who can pull his man away from the basket.

    yeah Whelan and a few of the other writers who go to practice a lot have been talking about it, apparently he's so athletic that he can range from 3-5 and thought we might see him as a plugin for the Dre wing/forward position.

    Would think Gordon would see some time at the center position, unless Boyle was okay playing Ben Mills 10 minutes or so a night.
