Will Blackshear be drafted?

    I hear that Don Devoe is ready to come in and establish discipline for the team next year. That should work.

    Why can’t he put his left heel down when he runs? Health issues?

    If I recall correctly it was something he inherited from his father.

    Exactly why I think Mike White is getting a bad rap. Our players just aren't performing to the level we thought they would.

    Hard to see Blackshear getting anything more than a D league look.

    Lewis would be better served by another year. He's got some skills but the inconsistency will be a tough sell in the NBA

    I think both Scottie and Tre would improve immensely with the sophomore jump. Both need to mature more and grow into their bodies, adding weight and muscle, get knock off/ around with whatever they try to do. The SEC is a very physical league. You excel in the SEC, you have a very good chance to make an NBA roster. Even Quez can get to the basket regularly, but if blocked out, has a short step back shot. He also has a warrior mentality and confidence he can get the ball to go down. These young guys will improve with time, but working on all facets of their games (driving and finishing when the opportunity arises, inside the arc finishing/ shooting and three point shooting) plus gaining muscle mass/weight, would help their careers in basketball.

    No..barely will make post-season play. White has not demonstrated the ability to coach/prepare people for the next level...European league is where he is going.

    Lol, he could have Phil Jackson, Popovich and Kerr working with him and it won't matter. They can't hide his athleticism issues. This isn't a CMW issue.
