Julius Randle with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 1 assist in a loss to a very good MSU team tonight.

This class is living to expectations so far: Randle, Parker, Wiggins, Gordon all having very good games so far.

Parker and Randle >>>>>Wiggins (right now).

 

I'd draft both over Wiggins at the moment.

I was shocked to see that the dookies were out rebounded last night. 

 

 

Going to be extremely tough for "one of the most athletic dook teams of all time" when the 3 pointers don't drop and they get pushed around inside.

Why were you shocked that they were out rebounded? Davidson out rebounded us, that is going to happen but shooting 50% from the free throw line killed us. We missed the front end 3 times in the first half which killed momentum. Kansas played a good game and deserved to win.

Yeah Duke lost for one reason last night. FTs.

 

Cook/Hood need to step up as well, but free throws killed Duke.

Yeah as good as Parker looked I thought it hurt us because Hood kind of lost his aggressiveness and kind of watched Parker and he admitted that much.  I think this new hand check rule has really affected Cook because he can't be aggressive on defense which was his MO.  That being said KU played a really good game and made some tough shots even when we played good defense so they deserve the credit.

Kansas has scary good potential with Wiggins/Embeiid/Ellis/Selden.

 

Wouldn't surprise me at all to see last night's matchup again come March or April.

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
