I have read in different places that Solomon Alabi (!) is in top shape. Apparently he was injured (does anyone know about this?) last season, and thus was unable to play to his ability. Coach Jay said words to the effect that Solomon wasn't ready for the speed of the game at the NBA level. That was apparent to anyone who watched him during his mercifully brief appearances on the floor.
Anyway Solomon has impressed Coach Casey, who has said he will give the big guy a chance to compete for the centre's spot. I find this all a bit much, although I'd be pleased if it's true. So, guys, what have you heard? Is Solomon Alabi ever going to be more than the Yogi Stewart of this team? Or is this Solomon-is-ready stuff just a forlorn hope, like expected Andrea to play defence?
