I hope kadri watches rielly and rielly influences him to become a gym rat. Until kadri becomes seriously committed to the gym and gets stronger and more explosive, he wont even come close to reaching his potential as a dynamic playmaker/dangler.
Reilly has elite speed as well. I've seen him catch guys on breakaways from 3 strides back.
