In fact Coleman, Hickey, Stringer and O'Bryant III played essentially the entire game.

Hickey
Stringer
Morgan
Coleman
O'Bryant

is a pretty legit lineup. We're a good team with them on the court. The problem is the lack of depth.

If he only .. . only . . . only could learn not to try and dribble when he is double and triple teamed. Either go up and shoot it or pass it back out. He has gotten much better at this but still reverts back to it too many times.

Size is the main problem. If we're not running, we're extremely limited offensively. And offensive rebounding kills us.

Carmouche over Morgan. I think both are solid.

I'd rather use Morgan since they're both about the same but he's only a freshman.

Yeah he is a great big man on defense, without him we would have lost this game due entirely to lack of rebounding.

I may be in the minority but his offense is not great. I watch him on offense and I think... really, you are talking about NBA. Never going to make that transition without offensive improvement.

He is offensively bipolar. He misses the rim on a free throw off to the side of the backboard!!! Dont' think I have ever seen a miss that bad. Anyone can short a free throw but how do you miss the entire rim off the backboard???

And then he make a sweet jump shot right after that.

He can't ever seem to handle a pass cleanly. His game would improve another step right there if he could just get the pass cleanly the first time it hits his hands.

No shite. Infuriates me when he dribbles after a rebound.

That said, dude has played hard and great the last 4 games.

I KNOW! It's like breaking a habit, I guess. I don't think he's really got full confidence in his strength/size.
And I wish he'd also double-pump as well to get his defender to commit, or get 'em flat-footed.
In fact I wish most of the players would double-pump before taking shots, they'd get fouled more on shooting or beat the defender. Wonder why they don't do it so much?

Am I missing something? I thought was bball basics?

Yeah I don't remember seeing that the entire game from anyone inside of 15!
