And I think that's why he does it. But in doing so, he becomes very easy to take the ball from. I think he has the ability to bounce right up off the floor after catch an entry pass. If he does that, no one has time to rotate over. And if he keeps the ball high, no one's taking it from him. He may miss the shot, but heck, he misses a lot of close in shots already, so he'd be no worse off doing that.
He also showed more patience with the ball and made a couple of excellent passes out of the double team. He will be a bigger monster next year and we will need him with Ayo gone.To his credit, Kofi kept the ball up high much more tonight, especially with the early alley-oops!
I wonder what Ayo and other athletes will do if the NBA pushes the draft back. There are rumors of the NBA looking at playing the finals as late as August and potentially having the draft after that. Would potential draftees stay with their universities through regular summer workouts or leave and work out on their own?
I’m a 49 year old man, and when I been shooting hoops I’ve imagined Ayos game winners. That kid has captured our family’s imagination and I hope he gets drafted in the first round.
Luka Garza should join him.
