I saw Ellis on TV the other night as hundreds of KU fans jammed into a bar to watched their beloved Jayhawks on TWC (that Cheyenne Zulu TWC TV package has been a real plus for business for bars in TWC areas . . .Comcast, Google, AT&T and many other customers, not so much) and I was stunned that he was still around.   He's like 27 isn't he?

My question for all the experts on this board is how do you score when you never touch the ball? There's not enough balls on the floor for this team and that is on the coaches.
Title: Re: Claws
Post by: sys on November 27, 2016, 04:36:49 PM
Quote
Dean's ONLY job where it is designed for him to touch the ball is to reverse the ball to the other side of the floor. He never gets a screen for him. He sets screens and picks and rolls or picks and pops. You can watch the game film and if you count touches where it's not designed to only reverse the ball and you can count the touches on one hand for a game. I'm used to coaching teams that like to share the ball and if they don't they come over and sit by me. Pretty simple.

Quote
The only way to score on this team is to create your own shot. It's the biggest ego who is going to shoot it. Might as well steal it from your own teammate and take it to the hole.

Quote
There were numerous times where Dean would post up and the guard would look at him and pass away or he would screen and pop out only to be ignored. I would even comment about it to the wife and then she would watch and pick up on it. It's like his team mates are ignoring him?

The 5 big egos on KU's team are pretty well defined and if you stray from the plan you can grab a seat on the bench. If you don't pass the ball on that team you might as well start trudging to the bench.

We had a fun little name for this last year and I can't remember exactly what it was.  Something about black to white to black I think.

b2w or b2w2b is no good because he's prolly just reversing the ball again in those cases.  black to white to bucket or gtfo.

Might as well steal it from your own teammate and take it to the hole.

Nick Young won a real nba game for the lakers doing the stealing the ball from a teammate this week, but he shot a 3 with it.

irregardless of his teammates selfishness he is not ready to shoot more often that not when he does find himself with the ball in scoring position.  He needs to realize there are only 2 other serviceable bigs on this roster and be ready to let if fly ever-y-time he touches it.

Last night.  23 minutes, 8 pts, 8 rebounds, 3 assits not bad.  Claws has a different role this year.  Not sure yet if that is good.  Seems like he is becoming nutgrabbing nasty if need be.  I like that he isn't fouling; thinking about though may stymie the rest of his game.

Thank goodness for Claws.  If he gets hurt, it is dog turd city.  He had the points and rebounds against ORU.  #ThreeGuysInTheStands how did he look.on defense?  Played lots of minutes will this hurt him against Vandy?

Just read the weekly Cat Q&A in the Wichita Eagle.  The questioner pointed out Wade has had to games in the row with good stats, a rarity it appears. The crux of the questions were is this the start of good-consistent Dean or will he revert back to 6 point Dean?  Will he go Alpha male?  I think he could be like Kaminisky.

All in all, getting Claws was a big win for oscar in the state of Kansas. I could have easily seen him playing for Wichita State. I'm not sure if he was on KUs radar when we recruited him.

At least this year it seems that if he has an off game we have enough talent to still pull out a win. Last year didn't seem that way. Perhaps the lifting of that pressure will allow him to relax a little?

Oh, they'll get to the tourney.  They'll win a play-in game or sneak in as about a 10 seed, lose in the 1st round, and oscar will save his job because that's what oscar does.

Named national player of the week.  Claws has some nasty rippers.  When was the last National Naismith Player of the Week, Foster?

Since Wade grew that scraggly deranged looking whiskers, he has been great. Fear the Beard.

We are seeing one of the great ones blooming before our eyes.  Dang glad he loved KState.  I don’t think Oscar would have won the recruiting battle for him.   Article said ISU tried everything short of putting a cinder block in his shorts to stop him.  I like the 9 assists the best.

Claws is going to make 1st team all Big 12 this year and possibly be a rotational guy in the NBA someday. How perfect would he be on a Popovich team?Awesome development from his first two years to this one. Happy for the dude.
