Hoops: Luke and the Thrill......

.... working out with the Knicks. A great article on both guys with a lot of good quotes throughout. Worth the read for Jacket fans:

"Not only is Luke a great kid with a real engaging personality," says Georgia Tech Assistant Coach Pete Zaharis. "But his work ethic is second to none. He's gained 40-50 pounds of muscle over the last four years and experts say he'll gain more. And standing a serious 7-foot-plus, he is a legitimate post-man with great footwork and a wide variety of skills. That makes him a real rarity -- and that should give him a great chance to make it in the NBA."

Tech's trip to the Finals did wonders for both players. "I know how to better deal with pressure situations," says Bynum. "In fact, I no longer feel pressure. Hey, this is basketball. Pressure is when you have three kids and no job."
