re: What is the drive for Malik to MSST? - Woodman
The bad news about Howland is he tears a player down to build them back up the way he wants to mold them. Folks have got to remember that Westbrook wasn't lighting them up in the NBA right out of UCLA. It took him about 3 years. To say his present prowess was all Howland is not correct. I'd sugg...

re: The Killer B's are recruiting Malik! - Woodman
I wish we had a big man [HS or Juco Center] coming in that could allow the three to believe they had most all of the core for a starting five. . Don't get me wrong, LSU can win and win big if they average 55% from the floor with these guys and still have nobody starting taller than Victor and Sim...

re: Whats our starting 5 next year w/ Malik Newman? - Woodman
Does Anybody Remember the Fab Five? . What makes Ben Simmons any less talented than Chris Webber? . What makes Malik Newman any less talented than Ray Jackson? . What makes Antonio Blakeney any less talented than Jimmy King? . Yeah, I know we don't have a Jalen Rose or a Juwan Howard on th...

re: Is there any hope of Martin deciding to return? - Woodman
I've seen his salary projection at between $900,000 and $950,000 per year. Does a player at that level get $2 to 3 million per year from various advertisers? If so, then perhaps not a bad gig. Even after agent and IRS take their cuts, hand a kid a net of $2 million plus for 3 years of work who does...

re: Kentucky guards leaving plays a big roll with newman's decision - Woodman
I like assessment by one on the link that Newman is a "me me". That is exactly the type of player who Ben Howland will break done and build back up over 3 to 4 years to conform to his way of doing things. I know this is a Kentucky article, but taking as much of the info as possible to assess whet...

re: High-profile recruit Malik Newman still has an eye on LSU, several others - Woodman
Fast paced and freedom to make plays - that is the antithesis of a Ben Howland coached team. He's all about Discipline and Defense. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1507448-ucla-basketball-why-ben-howlands-coaching-style-is-so-polarizing#articles/1507448-ucla-basketball-why-ben-howlands-coachin...

re: Is Ben Simmons as good as Lebron? - Woodman
To meet this comparison, he'll have to bulk up; but the closest player I'd compare him to at that age [or even as a freshman in college] is Magic Johnson. Wonderful passing vision. Could play point guard, shooting guard, small forward but even played either power forward or center in one NBA serie...

re: Miss State trending in CrystalBall for Malik Newman? - Woodman
I don't see it. Howland will develop winning teams, but he likes players there for four years. Have seen 2016 NBA mock drafts that have Simmons and Malik in the top 3. . How does Malik get to the top 3 with a team that won't make the tourney [even with him] with a coach that is going to have tigh...

re: Official Malik Newman Buzz Thread - Woodman
The new coach at MSU, Ben Howland, is a good coach who's players hated playing for. That's primarily why he was fired at UCLA. . "Howland's popularity dropped as the Bruins' success waned . . . There was criticism about his perceived tight-fisted control, in games and with the team and staff. Ther...

re: Fournette just said Anthony is teaching Brandon - Woodman
We could be sitting here in 20 years watching Anthony Jennings as a budding Division 1 Coach. Not saying that is his aspiration or if his ability to check-off yet reflects he can teach that from example. Perhaps he can phrase things better than 50-60 year olds for 19 year olds to pick up nuances. We...

re: Fournette just said Anthony is teaching Brandon - Woodman
Watch the three Brandon Harris March 26th interview videos and see if a lot of the crap about him is now true. . The way he tells it; he was young, inexperienced, what you'd expect from a "HS Senior" at College Spring Ball. . He was given a shot and was learning learning learning. He says if he ...

re: If you blame this on coaching, you're a moron - Woodman
The biggest complaint I had was the refusal to put a player like Bridgewater in for Mickey when he started to turn to "Brick"ey. There needed to be someone off the bench to provide a spark [other than Gray] and that certainly wasn't going to come from Malone. . The team flat out got tired. When ex...

re: Mickey and Martin talk about future after the game - Woodman
If we saw any semblance of Mickey's mid range jumper last night, he ought to stay for his last two years. Absolutely terrible looks from beyond five feet of the rim. Second Tier Europe / Middle East League at present. . Likewise, Martin really needs to develop a touch from 8 to 15 feet away. It wo...

re: Hypothetical about Johnny Jones - Woodman
Let's chalk the question up to Youth. . LSU has had four or five exciting runs in hoops over the past 40 years. I can't recall any of them lasting more than 3 years straight. For a while under Dale Brown, not getting into the tourney was a disappointment. . Still, LSU is not UCLA, Arizona, Gonza...

re: What kind of team is NC State? - Woodman
Both teams tend to play to the level of their competition and get up for the big games. Both will be up. Hate to put it on the shoulders of one player; but if Mickey comes up big, we win. If both teams play to their best, it should be close and is a very good match-up by the committee. ...

re: In basketball, do we have a "team" or just a collection of talented players? - Woodman
From an SEC experience across the board standpoint, we have a very YOUNG team. Auburn burned us with a senior who was top SEC scorer and a guard [where we are extremely young]. . Injuries happen. Exhaustion happens. Both lead to less than stellar play often at crucial times. Quality Depth wins ba...
