    I can't believe I just saw that. Actually I can. So what correction does that behavior get? Was the coaching staff even aware that crap was going on? He did that at Shocker Madness and it was hyped then. Looks pretty stupid when you freaking miss the shot!

    • Dude needs to watch some old Tekele film to see how to behave on the court. If ever there was a guy who could have talked trash but didn't. Love me some Tekele!

I'd take Ricks or Pierre at the 2, or even Walton at the 2 and someone different at the 3. We have talent. They may not be playing well right now, but at least you can see the talent in a lot of these guys.
        Ricks and Pierre physically completely dominate XB. XB I think wins the mental battle. Pierre is going to be a black hole. XB is going to take better shots that the other two .. but if none of them make it .. does it really matter?

          So at some point you have to say .. maybe we should try to create a different kind of shot rather than continue to hoist 3s when we aren't on.

            Said that to the person sitting next to me at the game ... "well if he would have just literally stood where he took the shot .. he would have had a rebound"

              Pierre might be the best slasher on the team. If IB could reign in the off balance stuff and use him to drive to the hole, it could work.

                Agreed, he has potential. Just needs to learn what's a good shot and what isn't.

                  Tall task to expect a player to learn something the coach doesn’t know.

                  • How many assists would CP have had if guys would hit some threes. He was doing a great job of drive and dish.

                    • As bad as the shooting is, watch the rebounding, it's even worse. They have no desire to rebound. When the ball hits the rim, they stand and watch or run to the other end. Most high school teams are better coached.

                      • As bad as the shooting is, as bad as the rebounding is, add in off ball player movement, poor ball movement, and a general lack of team court awareness

                        • Maybe IB could marginally endear himself to the fanbase if he started pulling out John McKay quotes.

                            SO good.

                              I would take the Bobby Knight approach. That would endear me. Get p!ssed and throw a chair or snap a clipboard in half or something. Not casually take off your sweater and place it on your chair.

                                I would give IB a pass for the season if he showed some fire and got ejected because of it.
