Bayno: "He's working hard; I'm really excited. Last summer, I spent the majority of the time with Greg, and LA called me a couple of weeks ago and said, 'Hey, what are you doing? Can you come to Dallas?' And immediately I got on a plane … he's been working. I can't say enough good things about the effort that he's putting in. The majority of work we're doing is adding to his game, working on his drive game. Teams crowd him so much; I think teams are going to crowd him and push him less (this year), and just really working on creating contact, using his body. I call it inside shoulder-outside hand, where every time he's looking to make a move to the basket he should be looking to hit the defense first with his inside shoulder, get to the rim and finish with his outside hand. He's working. He's wearing me out to be quite honest with you. He hired a personal trainer, a guy that works with a couple of the (Dallas) Cowboys. He's really gotten stronger; and he's done that on his own. I think he's probably up to 260, 262 (pounds). Considerably stronger and bigger, but hasn't lost any quickness. One of the things we've been working on is improving his first step. I can't say enough good things about him. He's taking it; I'm literally beating him up. He's probably doing 100 possessions a day once we get through, where I'm just forcing him baseline, forcing him middle, forcing him to his left hand, and just really cracking him with the pads and working on getting and-ones, and just continuing to be good at creating that contact and finishing with contact.
