Any of our coaches speak German in case she is cursing us while on tour?
Joking, am sure she will have a great visit.
I am still in the Jones & Trice camp for filling the 2 remaining open spots. But obviously Underwood & staff have seen things in person we have not. As long as the #wewillwin turns to #truth, lets go!
Looks more athletic in that video than any other video I’ve seen. Including game clips.
He does have that type of skills and he runs the floor very very well, finishes with either hand, has some hops.From your mouth to the kid's skills.
When you post a YouTube video, just copy the stuff after the last forward slash: in this case, "_SAhcxUYvb0". Then paste that stuff into your post, highlight it, and click the "Tube" button to add the appropriate
What is different is that he seems to elevate to dunk EASILY. Nobody on the team today (except maybe Spicy G) dunks easily. I like Finke but it seems like he needs 10 seconds to gather himself to dunk.2) but seriously, people are impressed that a 6’10 guy is dunking the ball and calling him athletic. Coordinated yes. Athletic, cmon.
Just being picky, and saying Kipper does.What is different is that he seems to elevate to dunk EASILY. Nobody on the team today (except maybe Spicy G) dunks easily. I like Finke but it seems like he needs 10 seconds to gather himself to dunk.
In the videos I saw of him he was getting way above the rim very easily. Maybe our expectations have been lowered over the past 3 years, but I'm not surprised people are excited about getting him in the O&B.
Coordination is a major component of athleticismLooks more athletic in that video than any other video I’ve seen. Including game clips.
Here’s what I think:
1) skills yes. He can handle for his size. I posted earlier that I think he could be poor mans Jacob Parker in the offense because he looks like he already works a lot of the pinch post for his high school and is comfortable there (in the minimal clips I’ve seen).
2) but seriously, people are impressed that a 6’10 guy is dunking the ball and calling him athletic. Coordinated yes. Athletic, cmon.
I feel like my realism is being taken as I don’t want him on the team. I understand we are nearing the spring signing period with huge gaps. We’re at a take what you can get point. I’m cheering for anybody who chooses us.
I think it can be defined and measured some but for some I'd agree its subjective.Because the term is subject to personal interpretation, maybe. It is all relative. I don't know how you could be offered a basketball scholarship to Illinois, and not be considered athletic. Not as athletic as some, sure. It isn't for shot put. Basketball players in general are considered to be better athletes than nearly every other sport, because of what they have to do in the course of the game.
