Having an athletic Big who actually finishes at the rim. I'm ready for Pumba!
Athletic big who finishes at the rim?
Can he make Free Throws?
70% free throw shooter in hs.
Hoping so hard that he's a game changer. I expect him to take a bit of time to get it, kind of like Mayor Dinwiddie, but once he does he should improve our rebounding, post scoring, post defense, and ball screens.
P.S. 70% from the line is solid. It's enough to keep people from fouling him as a strategy. The real key will be his clutch FT shooting down the stretch of games.
This. I can take enough antacids to stomach misses in the first if we can just manage to hit the 1&1s in the second.
I also hope he is a game changer, but he doesn't have to do much to be an upgrade over simba. Depth in the front court is a game changer imo.
Depth? What you talking about, depth? It would be our first post presence in YEARS. Simba and Dufault do not count.
Hope... she's a bitch.
I just hope our expectations are not too high. First time on the court at the college level, tonight could be hit or miss.
I hope we see him battle in the paint, grab some rebounds, change some shots, etc. If he shows us more, great.
Had a dream that he had 17 and 10...
Hopefully he takes SHT's PT
I'm (naively) holding out hope that Simba shakes the rust off and we get a decent four man rotation down low of Cain, Simba, Austin & Dre.
Wait, I thought Dre was a guard......... The more I see Simba play I am not so sure it is rust, his issue may be skill.
fify. Dude is big, but that is about it. Athleticism is non-existent.
I don't care what he's called, we can use him down low.
As for Simba, I'm afraid you're right, but I'm holding out the tiniest bit of hope. Boyle said something recently about how he's seen some improvement from SHT in the last week, so I'm stupidly clinging to that branch with all I can. We need him to step up if we're going to do anything this year.
I just think it is funny they still call dre a guard.
As far as Simba, I want him to be physical, body somebody up, get an offensive foul b/c he is shoving a guy on his way to dunking on him. However what I see is somebody who plays way smaller then the frame they were born with. I'll cling to that branch with you though and hope for improvement.
see that post and the following.
