Sunday Miscellany: Brockman, Josh Smith, Dentmon, and a kid named "Nars"

Some tidbits, links, and videos for you today on another off-season Sunday: /

Some Jon Brockman stuff:

It’s looking more and more like he’s a lock to make the Kings roster. I was curious and did some (very unscientific) research, and it looks like none of the other big-name second-round picks (Jeff Pendergraph, Jodie Meeks, DeJuan Blair, and Sniveling Poo-head, Chase Budinger) have their jerseys available in their team stores, while Brockman’s is available here.

Also, here are some more nice words about Jon from his new coach.

And, here are a couple of videos:

The first is some Brockman interview footage after one of the Kings’ summer league games.

And here’s some highlights from the Kings/Knicks summer league game. Nothing that highlights Jon specifically, but you can see him a bunch on the court – he played 33 minutes in the game, and grabbed 15 boards.

Josh Smith:

Dreaming of a starting lineup for the 2010/11 season that could be Final Four worthy? This good article on the many high school camps and tournaments going on during the summer in the Las Vegas area mentions that Kentwood senior-to-be Josh Smith has narrowed his choices to just UW and UCLA. He is THE big man prospect in the class of 2010, and getting him would be a coup along the lines of an Abdul Gaddy or a Spencer Hawes, possibly bigger.

Here’s a little Josh Smith footage.

Justin Dentmon and Nars:

And, here’s about a minute of footage from Coach Romar’s basketball camps that have been going on at UW over the past few weeks. Justin Dentmon engages in some mild schooling of a kid named Nars who plays high school ball in South Kitsap.

Reminder that voting is still open in Part II of The Fans Speak Out – Husky Basketball Fan Poll. I’ll keep it open until, probably, Tuesday, and then do a recap similar to what I did for Part I.

And, finally, huge thanks to Bob at the Seattle Times for linking to Montlake Madness on his Husky Hoops blog.

Okay, thanks for coming!
