So that means we don’t want Dain on a spot up or Ty in a p/r to be a threat to keep people honest right?

Is everyone forgetting that we packed the ball down to Kofi on most possessions?

Yea but the problem was it was either a Kofi post up or a 3 on most possessions. Nobody else was really getting a lot of attempts at the rim which was a problem at times when the 3s weren't falling. There should be more balance this year with guys being able to attack the rim more which means not having to take as many 3s.

Exactly so comparing last year to this one is useless...IMO we will be able to get what we need to..unless we have terrible efficiency or foul trouble...
It will be a work in progress for a bit...but it will be worth it in the end....

He is a transfer regardless of years of elgibility. The class of Hawkins, Miller and Curbelo was very good except 2/3 has now transferred.

Regarding Perrin, he reminds me of Channing Frye.
So like Arizona Channing Frye OR NBA Channing Frye?

They are extremely different players. College Frye was 6-23 on 3s for his career. NBA Frye had nearly 600 3s. Post player vs spot up/stretch 5 guy.

Expect to see many more fast break buckets. Length and speed will mean better opportunities and we have a team of finishers at the basket. All can run and stuff.
