Re: 1994-1996 : Rubin, Kwiatkowski, Halebian, Papa, Corinteli, McDonald, Donaldson,
One thing I know for sure is Kozlov definitely knows how to slide. There's a video on youtube from Groundspass.net that shows him sliding like 3 feet in a really controlled manor towards the ball (which was too far out of reach). Also there's an unique instructional video by his dad teaching players to slide. I say unique because he splashes waterall over the court to make it easier...
I'm not convinced that's a safe idea though.
Hardcourt or claycourt?
