Gabe v. Tyronn

Tyronn Lue and Lindsey Hunter saw the floor a combined 9% of last season. To put that number in perspective, it equals the amount of time Gabe Pruitt played last season. So just to reiterate, Pruitt was on the court as much as both Lue and Hunter combined.

While we're on the subject of Tyronn Lue, let's take a look at his numbers from the last year (below). I don't find them impressive. Do You? Needless to say, Lue is a wee bit shorter than Gabe, too. Gabe is 6-4 or 6-5, while Tyronn is sub-six.

Continuing on, we found out that this summer that Gabe has been tagged with the "he's a nice guy" label. Too nice apparently. Turns out, he's a preacher's kid. Watch video below. I always wondered why he couldn't just decide to be a little more beastly out there, you know, like Rodney Stuckey. Perhaps Gabe just doesn't have it in him.



I'm sure you've all seen this speculation, but there are those who expect Lester Hudson to beat out Gabe for a roster spot. Most of that speculation came, however, before Hudson broke his finger.
