Chicago Sun-Times - Former Illinois bigman James Augustine, judged by many to be a second round pick, sounded a bit discouraged Friday about the games at the NBA's predraft camp.

"As games went on, it kind of got out of control a little bit,'' said Augustine. ''People were getting down on each other and stuff like that instead of just playing basketball."

"I wish I could have done a little bit more. In this type of atmosphere, it's like playing in the Nike or Adidas camps again: The shots are going up; there's really not much ball movement. It's not a real game almost, so it's kind of hard to show what you can really do in a game situation.
