Deon Thompson

Dude is a pussy when it comes to rebounding.

There's a reason all of his shots are FADE AWAYS.

Because he's a 6'9 power forward who is afraid of contact. That's why he can't get a rebound to save his punk life. Might require "CONTACT."

Get your big @$$ inside and be physical sometimes you sissy. Can you get ONE rebound when it matters?

I agree. Deon is only good at shooting face up jumpers. If he has to make a move, then forget about it. Thanks God for Ed Davis! Too bad Stephenson had to leave and Zeller broke his wrist.

He's been playing better but i (like you) would like to see him get more physical.

he showed up big for us during the Duke game. But I agree. He plays very soft.

Eh, he is what he is. There is no point in complaining about him now.

Just look to the future...Ed Davis. That kid is gonna be tough after an off season in the weight room.

he has a lot of bad habits, he never follows his shot, he never boxes out

im looking forward to Davis and Zeller playing together, both are very fundamentally sound

Davis is going to be a beast on the inside. Watch out...

i'm with you to a certain extent. the reason why i do like deon right now is that he compliments tyler inside well. he has great potential for a big man. usually the finesse game is the hard part to learn and all big guys can do is body up down low. looks to me that deon has the hard part out of the way and just needs to get big.

he did have that one move early on in the game vs dook-- maybe a sign for the future.

Sure, he might be soft but he is still better then most of the other bigs in the ACC.

Thats true... but he needs to use his body more, he could do some damage. He reminds me of a dook big.... Slow, soft, and underachieving. Maybe when Zeller gets warmed up again thatll put the pressure on him. And yeh Davis will be a beast next year if he adds about 15lbs of muscle.
