Feb 7th Post Practice Report w/ VIDEO: Coach Vaughn Embraces ‘Prince of Positivity’ Nickname
Watch intently a lengthy 15-minute interview after today’s practice from Jacque as we dug deep into how it’s possible to remain so positive when your team is on an 11-game slide and has lost 22 of the past 24 contests. Jacque also re-confirmed that Arron Afflalo will re-join the team in Cleveland and play after Arron attended a personal matter in California. Coach Vaughn also stated that DeQuan and Al Harrington practiced. JJ Redick did not practice but is making the trip and is questionable for Friday. Most notable is the absence of Hedo Turkoglu who won’t fly to Cleveland for Turk-O-Flu reasons. Jacque also has been keeping tabs on Glen Davis following foot surgery. Maurice Harkless solidified how astonishing Vaughn’s amazingly great attitude has been in withstanding the struggles.
Click below for video of Jameer Nelson after practice as well as Nik Vucevic participating in shooting drills:
Jameer Nelson had a bit of an embarrassing moment when it came to naming a Cleveland Cavalier player threat not named Kyrie Irving. The captain came up with Anderson Varejao. It wasn’t until after the interview that I had to break the news to Nelson that Varejao is out for the season and that he won’t have to worry about the Brazilian. It was kind of Brian Schmitz to remind Jameer to give Big Baby a phone call. Practice ran an hour later than expected, so no interviews of Redick or Harrington.
Also enjoy some shooting and pick-and-roll drills from Nikola Vucevic.
