Default Parker and JO working out together

From an interview on Hoopsworld

http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=9450

Quote:
One of those perimeter players for the Raptors, Anthony Parker, was also putting his time into training at Impact Basketball on Saturday and echoed the same eager sentiment as O'Neal. "His addition to our team brings us what we were missing last year," Parker told HOOPSWORLD. "He brings toughness, a defensive presence in the paint, and he's a great rebounder. All of those things are things we struggled with last year. I'm very excited to have him on the team and the organization and the fans are just really excited for another season."

Damn straight. Jawai was working out with JO the other day as well
Quote:
Nathan Jawai was at Impact Basketball today working out with new front court partner Jermaine O'Neal. The young man from Australia gave Sam Mitchell an eyeful as he went through a number of drills to demonstrate both his physical prowess under the basket and his soft shooting touch.

First was a serious of low post power moves - Jawai on one side and O'Neal on the other. Jawai is a huge physical specimen, and he showed right away that he has the footwork and the raw power to be lethal under the hoop. Next up was a series of shooting drills, one of which had him shooting one-handed from the free throw line extended. He made a high percentage of those shots, too, and definitely has the potential to be a mid-range threat. Together with his power game under the basket he could turn out to be an important player for the Raptors this season.
From hoopsworld as well but I couldn't find it so I couldn't link it. Just read it on Realgm.

If we can just get Bosh and Jose there as well. Screw it, bring to whole team there and let them play together.

Nice .... Jawai learning from one of the best right now. I'm liking this and only hope that he's a "sponge" and is taking in alot of pointers that Jermaine might be passing along to him.

If Jawai continues to Impress I can see the Raps considering packaging Bargs or Hump and Joey to get another 2 guard. And sign Kwame Brown or someone like that as another backup Big man.

Mabey Bargs and Joey for Barbosa?

Why isn't Bargnani in that gym within the same timeframe - that's what I'd like to know.

I'll jump off a bridge if they sign Kwame Brown. He's just a terrible, terrible NBA player. I'm surprised people keep on giving him chances after chances.

I thought he was already in Vegas a couple weeks ago training. (around draft time) I could be wrong though. Maybe he's training with John Lucas in Houston now.

I thought he was still working out in Italy, and was going to starti "BIG MAN CAMP" last week of July?

I wonder if they get to sit around a camp fire at night....

*Yawn* This would have been interesting if we removed Parker's name and inserted Bargnani's.

Bargs has already been there, did you not see JO's interview from when he was officially welcomed as a Rap....he said he has already worked out with Bargs in Vegas.

Baargnani should be O'Neal's shadow.
