Arthur Kaluma Appreciation Thread
« on: December 09, 2023, 08:40:33 AM »
This is a thread for discussing Arthur Kaluma. I've really enjoyed watching him this season. He seems like a very unique kind of a Swiss Army knife guy with a variety of great tools. Really enjoyed watching him finish at the rim in transition, swish threes and rebound like a maniac against Villanova. What are your thoughts, fellow Catfans? What is his ceiling? I could see him as a second-team all conference type of guy.

He might have a promising future in the triple jump he’s already 2/3 the way there

Has any Cat ever had a better looking EuroStep?

I don’t watch many games in the preseason, but I do listen pretty often and they seem to call Kaluma’s name a lot, which I assume is good.

He's our guy now that Tomlin has transferred.  Hopefully his perimeter shooting continues to stay hot.

If I listened to losery Creighton fans, I'd believe him to be a ball hog in love with his shot. He scored 17 today 6-8 fg shooting and 3-4 from 3. Frankly, I wish he would have shot more.

He’s been very efficient the last two games.

You have to remember that Creighton fans have completely smooth brains.  100% lobeless.

It was really fun watching him play today. He crushed, Cam crushed, great times all around. I’m happy for our guy. Things seem to be clicking and Kaluma is a big part of that.

Also a pretty nice thunderdunk
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I've started referring to them as "Kaluma Strikes". It annoys the crap out of my family.
