Which client/player surprised you the most in terms of unfair rep and actual work ethic? Thanks and keep up the good work, Coach.

I had an amazing time coaching Earl Clark. He threw up every day for a week, and came back to finish every single rep of every drill he missed. Then once he got into shape, he was a beast with a perfect attitude. He's going to be great in Orlando. Amazing that he was given away.
Speaking of Earl Clark. What kind of talent do you see him developing into (stat wise)? Thanks

I see him as a slightly better version of Odom. At best. Which is very good. But he has to get coached up, and allow himself to listen.
...This goes right along with some of the positive things that SVG said about him after the Houston game. I love the Lamar Odom comparison. I hope we can resign this guy. Here's the link for the rest of the chat: http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/chat/_/id/36491
