jordan brand classic impressions?
super impressed with tarc. first time i've been able to see him play (outside of highlight reels). one of the announcers i think hit the nail on the head when he said it was amazing he had 14 and 10 i think his final line was, and they didn't run a play for him the entire game. i also thought grant looked pretty good. ashley seemed aggressive at times, but he was definitely invisible for parts of the game. overall i was just impressed with how our guys attacked the bucket and fought hard for rebounds. i really think kaleb is going to have a big impact next year.
outside of the zona guys i was really impressed with goodwin, poythress, and purvis. this was also the first time i've seen noel play and i agree with most people on here that he's really overhyped, i wasn't really impressed at all. kid has no offense whatsoever that i saw. also, while i can't deny the talent that shabazz has, the kid is a pure ball hog. i literally think i saw him pass the ball about 3 times. and i don't know if it was just me or not but it seemed like the west played their worst basketball when he was on the floor. again i can't deny his talent but part of me is happy he didn't end up at arizona, he doesn't seem like the kind of guy miller would want. ucla has a ton of talent for sure next year, but i think between bazz and larry drew there is potential for implosion. i hope that doesn't happen but i wouldn't be surprised.
anyone else's thoughts?
