  • Well, uh, you know, I worked out how to go work out.

  • Um, they liked what they saw.

  • Thank you, Iris, with our next question, let's go to Chris Feed or Chris Tyreese.

  • I'm curious when you're in college and you go through an offseason, you probably have set, um, instead of workouts that you go through Thio, improve your game Now that you're going from college to the NBA.

  • How much if at all have those workouts changed in terms of what you're trying to better.

  • Yeah, I just say, uh, you know, I think my injury was a little bit of a blessing in disguise in the sense of being able to really step away from the game of basketball for extended period of time and look at what I need toe work on, obviously, you know, tightening up my handle, shots off the dribble, finishing at the rim.

  • Just a lot of different stuff.

  • That being able to step away and look at from the outside in and see where my where.

  • There are criticisms in my game that, and holding my game that I can fix has has been really, really good.

  • I think, um, kind of having that that year between my freshman software when I was working on was basically everything, because my role changed drastically and so just fine tuning everything, and I'm still doing that now.

  • But just with focal points on the things I just mentioned, because I know what I do well in and areas that I could get better at.

  • So obviously I'm working on everything.

  • But with the general focus on the things that I just mentioned.

  • Thanks, Tyreese.

  • Next question.

  • Let's go to Ian Bagley.

  • Ian, Harry's Thank you for doing this.

  • Yeah, I have had some.

  • Just, like, an interview or yeah.

  • Just interview, Okay.

  • And And just next, just in general, you guys in this draft class are in the unique position.

  • There's not gonna be any summer league.

  • It's kind of draft and then training camp almost immediately.

  • What?

  • What do you feel like?

  • That's a just a miss development opportunity.

  • And what can you do to kind of over overcome that?

  • A quick turnaround.

  • I mean, I guess it might be a miss development opportunity.

  • Obviously, this summer league and having the summer, uh, use usually beneficial.

  • But I think that baptism by fire is that is the best way to go about it.

  • Uh, you know, kind of just throwing us in.

  • Our next question.

  • Cody Taylor.

  • Cody.

  • Hey, Tyree's thanks for joining us today.

  • Um, you said you've been out working out with some players.

  • What has been maybe the best piece of advice that you've received from one of these NBA players that you're out with?

  • I just say, uh, me and Gilbert talked a little bit, uh, just about angles and focus on little things like that because he just talked about, you know, you could shoot the ball.

  • Really?

  • Well, um, you know, that's what you do with a high level.

  • The only the only thing you're gonna have to work on is just getting angles and finding spots to get to that.

  • You could really get your shot whenever you want.

  • Uh, not being not over over, you know, making things more complex than they have to be simplifying things.

  • Uh, you know, one dribble to dribble.

  • Simplify as much as possible because his words of advice for basically, you know, if you're if you're shooting, it's going in for the most part, if you can get it off.

  • So the most important part is just about getting your spot.

  • So that's probably best.

  • Best piece of advice that I've that I've gotten from former NBA player.

  • Great.

  • Thank you.

  • And we only have time for about one more question.

  • So let's go toe Tough on Bondi.

  • Hey, Tyreese.

  • How you doing?

  • I'm good.

  • How you doing?

  • All right, man.

  • Um, a lot of point guards in this draft.

  • Lemelle Oh, Killian Hayes.

  • Carol Lewis.

  • Cole.

  • Anthony.

  • What?

  • What separate you from those guys?

  • Um, I just think you know my overall basketball.

  • Cute.

  • I'm really a student of the game.

  • I love the game of basketball, so I'm really obsessed with I spend a lot of time watching film or, uh, you know, in the gym or just doing some That's basketball related.

  • I think that separates me, but at the same time, I really, truly feel like I'm the best facilitating this draft.

  • The best shooter in this draft on day one of the highest best like you.

  • So, you know, obviously I have that confidence in myself.

  • I feel like that's what separates me.

  • But I'm not the one who makes the decisions.

  • Uh, November 18th.

  • So, um, hopefully we can have this conversation, you know, in a year or two it and see what separates me.
