Although I like Nail and his honesty, the Russian factor scares me.......that being high maintenence and moody.

Players from NA are taught very early to be good team mates.....I do not see any real evidence to the contrary for the Russians.

I hope I'm wrong.

Yak is my favorite of the Fab Five, even before his first game. I really hope he is not hammered into a round hole by 'the man'. Yakkety Yak, please talk back.
