Live from LA; Thomas is ready to meet the media

It’s always interesting to see which players are selected by their coaches to represent the team at Pac-10 Media Day. Often times the event is used as a springboard to launch a Player of the Year campaign.
Here’s a list of the coaches and players that will headline today’s press conference at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
Arizona — Sean Miller and Derrick Williams
Arizona State — Herb Sendek and Ty Abbott
California — Mike Montgomery and Harper Kamp
Oregon — Dana Altman and Malcolm Armstead
Oregon State — Craig Robinson and Calvin Haynes
Stanford — Johnny Dawkins and Jeremy Green
UCLA — Ben Howland and Malcolm Lee
USC — Kevin O’Neill and Nikola Vucevic
Washington — Lorenzo Romar and Isaiah Thomas
Washington State — Ken Bone and Klay Thompson
Thomas said he takes his role seriously as the voice and face of the UW players.
“It’s something fun to do,” he said. “Being here and seeing Brock (Jon Brockman) did it and Quincy (Pondexter) did it so I was looking forward to doing it. I’m glad they picked me.”
Thomas is looking forward to spending time with Lee, however, the UW junior co-captain isn’t planning on getting too comfortable with the other Pac-10 stars.
“I’ll be friendly with a few of them that I know,” he said. “The other ones, I really don’t care too much for them so it’ll be what’s up and that’s about it.”
Interviews begin at 10 a.m., however, the league will likely release the media preseason predictions early in the morning.
Check back throughout the day for news and notes from Media Day. I’ll also provide updates on my Twitter account.
One last note, I don’t believe the Pac-10 is not providing a live online video link like it did last year. I’ll confirm with a league official tomorrow and will immediately post a link if there is one.
Updated 12:22 a.m.: The conference will provide video links throughout the day on its website.
