Once again great job goose
Call me the leader of the African Badass hype machine, but I really think SHT could be a solid contributor next year. Here is my reasoning, he probably played his best game in a CU uniform against Baylor, he showed he can find cutters and drop dimes out of both the high and low post, with a more athletic team next year I in-vision a more "fluid" offensive where his passing ability can be showcased. Who knew he could pass? Obviously nobody, b/c when the ball entered the post NOBODY moved all year, when they finally did in that Baylor game he found them.
Dre - first off, if he is a guaranteed lottery pick or first rounder next year he has to go pro. Would I love to see him in a CU uniform for his SR year? Absolutely, but injuries in basketball are all to prevalent and your earning potential is 10 fold in the NBA over whatever he would earn out in the real world if he got hurt. All that being said I think he comes back for his SR year. I love Dre and even though the stats say he is fairly efficient on offense and can get to the line, he cannot create his own shot and doesn't shoot the 3 or any jump shots with a hand in his face, nor does he put the ball on the floor and take it to the rack, in the NBA he needs to be able to do all of that. With his size he won't be able to use his athleticism to get points the way he does at the college level. He is a rebounding machine and has a great ability to read where the ball is going to be, but he HAS GOT TO LEARN TO BOX OUT. This is another thing that won't translate well to the next level.
