McRoberts Interesting Comment On Coach K

Really?  Miles was always very athletic but was never a back to the basket/post move scorer he got his points in transition and by working hard on the glass which is the exact same thing he does in the NBA.  BTW his averages for points and rebounds are the same in the NBA as they were at Duke.

 

I mean I agree that he is doing the same things now that he was in college, but if anything he is doing them more effectively in the NBA (which is very rare for a guy 2 years out of college who went to school 4 years).

 

He's averaging 8 and 8 with a block in 24 minutes, which is actually better than his senior year at duke (though he only played 20 min/ game).  In terms of the NBA, where you're luck to get a good rotation player with a late 1st round pick, he is already outplaying his draft position.  Duke didnt do his draft stock any favors by playing him 20 minutes a game

 

Duke's system lately has been to put 4 shooters/ ball handlers on the floor at all times, and it limits the opportunities for their bigs to shine.

And he's doing the same thing in Phx now. Surrounded by shooters setting picks and getting dirty points.

Also you are wrong about the offense we ran last year with Mason. Where the ball would touch his hands in the post as much as any shooter on the outside. The offense actually ran thru Mason.

So again stop pushing your false Tarhole propaganda.

Yeah I know, I just said that

Yeah, you passed it inside a bit more last year for a change. It only took until Mason's senior year to figure out he should get some touches. Even though he was hyped as a one-and-done player when you recruited him, or as you would call it, not a big time recruit.

Why dont you tell me again how nobody knew about Sheldon Williams until dook recruited him? lol

Why don't you tell me how JMM goes from top 5 pick to nothing after spending 3 Seasons at UNC??

Also it's pretty clear to most knowledgeable basketball fans. That it took Mason that long to develop a post game. Which again is a feather in K's cap. That a player with no post game as a freshman can develop into the focus of a inside to outside offense in his senior year.

JMM was only considered a potential top 5 pick by people who dont understand how the NBA draft works

Then that's more then half the scouts and analyst who had him top 5 if he had left his Freshman year.

A couple had him top 10 after his freshman year, nobody had him top 5.  He wouldnt have gone in the lottery once his measurements came out.  Well I cant say he wouldnt have for sure, but it would have been completely unprecedented compared to the last 30 years of NBA drafts

 

Your memory is terrible man, you should get that checked out

I could be wrong but I didn't think Sheldon was a big recruit at the time.

I do know he wasn't near the scorer he was coming into the program as he was leaving. His game definitely got better at Duke. And K definitely featured him a lot in his offense which helped his draft stock. So this whole thing about K and big man not progressing in his program is completely false.

Mcbob, and Shav were soft and that's why they didn't fulfill their potential.

Completely agree!  K ran the offense through him and that's what got JJ open looks, great one two punch with those guys together.

I don't think he was a one and done player, Ryan Kelly and John Henson were both rated higher than Mase.
