re: LSU will sign Malik Newman (Book it) - Tom Bronco
[quote]The services have said Brown and Newman are not going to the same place - two alpha dogs. [/quote]Couldn't you say the same thing about Newman and Blakeney? They both like to shoot a lot and there is only one basketball. ...

re: NBA Draft - Mickey's draft spot with latest declarations to enter draft - Tom Bronco
I think the majority of you are missing the boat. Without a great deal of "individual hard work" Mickey wasn't going to be a three. If LSU let him play there or not really had nothing to do with it. He just didn't have 3 pro skills. He needed a much better jump shot with more range. His ball han...

re: Ben Simmons withdraws from Jordan Brand Classic - Tom Bronco
Point taken if he was recruited hard by Kentucky. One could be considered a fluke. Two is just what I said a switch of power. Let's face it, Blakeney is coming because he was close to Simmons and wanted to play with him. Malik might have some of the same thoughts but was not that close. ...

re: Ben Simmons withdraws from Jordan Brand Classic - Tom Bronco
[quote]Simmons probably already knows where Newman is going.[/quote]And that will be Kentucky. If Jones beats Kentucky in a heads up recruiting battle it will mean a huge switch of power in the SEC. Just can't see it happening....

re: What would signing Malik Newman mean for Keith Hornsby's role? - Tom Bronco
[quote]quote: I'd probably just try to guard all of them but I'm no basketball coach Well of course you TRY to guard them all, but if you have multiple screens, you have to decide who is worth switching extra defenders on and who isn't. If every player on the court is a threat to hit a game wi...

re: Elbert Robinson III: Did the weight loss have to be so drastic? - Tom Bronco
Well if Elbert had Kaminsky's freshman numbers or Malone his sophomore numbers I would feel a lot better about our chances. But a quick check will show you they were just a fraction of that. A very small fraction....

re: Elbert Robinson III: Did the weight loss have to be so drastic? - Tom Bronco
[quote]What a horrible line of logic. You don't pass up on guys with that size and skill set just because it may take a little while for him to come into his own. Give him a chance at least.[/quote]The problem with giving him a chance is that we have NO proven big men back next year. We have Simmons...

re: Ben Simmons measures at 6'10" at Nike Hoops Summit - Tom Bronco
[quote] I hope he's not relied on to guard opposing PF's. [/quote]Hell, he will be guarding centers after Malone, Elbert or whoever we have playing center gets in foul trouble. And we know they will be in foul trouble....

re: ESPN predicts Ben Simmons "won't live up to the hype" - Tom Bronco
[quote]It's just cringe worthy of how poorly written these pre-season ESPN articles have been. The pre-season ranking article had no mention of Craig Victor or the distinct possibility Robinson could surprise a lot of people next season[/quote]I agree that Victor should be mentioned but how can you ...

re: ESPN has LSU Basketball as 7th Seed in 2016 Tournament! - Tom Bronco
[quote]Believe me y'all are going to be thrilled with CVictor [/quote] Perhaps and perhaps not. Mickey, despite how he played the last games of the season, is big shoes to fill. Every year I see every new player we get has his praise sung. Until they get on the court you just don't know. If you w...

re: ESPN has LSU Basketball as 7th Seed in 2016 Tournament! - Tom Bronco
[quote] We have no reliable point guard or center going into next season. Did Patterson or quarterman transfer or declare? Dumb comment. [/quote]People seem to argue a lot about the definition of a point guard. I agree with those who think it is someone who does more than dribble the ball up...

re: "Get ready for the ride of your life at Coleman Coliseum" - Avery Johnson - Tom Bronco
I've always liked Avery. I thought the Spurs shouldn't have traded him and I think he did a good job coaching the Mavericks. Alabama got a good one and he should improve their basketball. ...

re: ESPN has LSU Basketball as 7th Seed in 2016 Tournament! - Tom Bronco
We have no reliable point guard or center going into next season. Our bench is thin and shaky once again. We lose two quality players and add two quality players. I think we will do better than a 9th seed but it won't be easy. We must have more consistency on offense, better decisions, fewer turnove...

re: Johnny Jones has gotten the most out of his highly rated players - Tom Bronco
[quote]That has to be on the player to get them up in his free time.[/quote]Absolutely, I made the same comment earlier. Jump shooting and free throws are on the player to put in the time on his own. Hornsby's oh so wrong technique works only because he put in so many hours practicing it. As far ...

re: Ben Simmons Pro Position - Tom Bronco
Yeah that's right he will be a small forward but he does have PG skills. I watched the semi-final and final high school championship games and the best part of his game is his ball handling and passing. He is not going to be a great scorer. At least it will be that way if he doesn't improve his ...

re: Whats our starting 5 next year w/ Malik Newman? - Tom Bronco
Malik Newman won't be coming to LSU and I think that is a good thing if we can get another decent big man who can rebound and play defense. Newman and Blakney both like to put the ball up and would not be good together IMO. Quarterman and Hornsby play defense, hustle and rebound as well as score...

re: Whats our starting 5 next year w/ Malik Newman? - Tom Bronco
It amazes me that people don't remember the lessons of the past. Anyone remember Quarterman and Martin's freshman year? No matter how great most freshmen require at least half the season to get adjusted to college ball. The main thing is that they are all known for their great offense and are no...

re: LSU Basketball - Tom Bronco
It is hilarious that you mention Rick Barnes who just got fired. Why do you think he got fired? He got the exact same criticisms that people love to use on CJJ. He had rosters full of, not just NBA drafted players, or even players who had pretty good NBA careers. These were guys who were and or a...

They don't seem to be very impressed overall although they do have some nice things to say. But the things they said that were negatives or some of the exact same things that were said on this forum.

re: Ok is the SEC Network not offered on Watch Espn for TimeWarner customers?? - Tom Bronco
I'm in Austin and get it but I am on AT&T Uverse. Does ESPN3 work the same way? I noticed the baseball game was on that also. ESPN3 and the SEC network streaming are different but sometimes carry the same games. ...
