The flip side that we’re not talking about is, if kofi is spaces out on the floor while Giorgi is in the low post, how do we punish teams when they sag hard off kofi?
Weak side alley oop, after reversing the ball is one way , Have K set screens on the three line after dumping in to G and G posting or passing out of the double team....deking and gaining good rebounding position on low post... if you have ever drawn up plays there are many ways to use a mobile big when you have multiple offensive weapons.

The last name is pronounced Coburn. That's true for just about everyone with that name. Proof in this video
The hesitation and sideways look on that second question: “why illinois?”

i think we played this one right
 
you feel me, dog?

Enjoying these Cockburn clips and articles. Couple of things that stand out: Kofi is articulate and intelligent. All too frequently, top recruits are meatballs. Cockburn clearly isn't.

Because we'd be passing up easier shots that our opponents could take at the other end.
What the other team does on offense does not affect our offense. If the new 3 pt line makes our offense better, standing a couple feet behind the old one would have as well.

I'm actually pretty impressed by these kids a lot of the time. Being born into the social media spotlight (which surely rots their brains in other ways) tends to put a coat of polish on these kids public interactions. It's a setting they're comfortable in in a way jocks of years past wouldn't have been.

A couple of local articles (News-Gazette) have pointed out that the proper pronunciation of Kofi's last name is CO-burn.
OK then. I sit corrected. Thanks all.

Edit --> And just to clarify, I wasn't trying to be funny in my original post, I was really under the impression that his name is pronounced differently.

Is there an over/under on Kofi caused in game hoop damage this season?
