His passing ability. Dem passes looked awfully soft...
They were tentative passes. JC wanted him not to just keep chucking threes. These kids are caught between what they would do reflexly and what JC wants them to do. This is JC's strength. He knows the players strengths and the tendency of players to just be one dimensional. He wants his players to develop more of their skills.His passing ability. Dem passes looked awfully soft...
Daniels is a stud it's easy to see. It looks to me like Roscoe is just pressing, trying to do too much. He needs to just play his game, Roscoe is an extremely important piece to the puzzle.
Funny - I see this too. He seems to have a slight bend in the his and elbows and plays like that - not a lot of torquing and shoulder/hip rotation.Not an amazing athlete a little stiff in the hips in terms of agility . . .
The thing about DD that i like the most... no hesitation. Right when he gets the ball, he knows what he's doing with it if he's open. And everyone knows he can stroke it.
Yeah I noticed thAt too but I think it's only when he's wide open. if pressed I bet he jumps.He doesnt elevate a ton on his jump shot. However hes so tall for a wing player and has a high release he can get it off. He cant exactly take anyone off the dribble one on one yet either. I think once his handle improves he becomes a stud. Adding strength is a must too.
Agreed. As much as I love to see Daniels light it up, it pains me to see Roscoe struggle. Hes such a tough, likable kid. Need him to get back in his grooveAlthough I will say, it hurts my soul a little watching 'Scoe sulk on the bench. He sees the writing on the wall and knows Daniels is better than him. But man, he's gotta get his head on strait cuz we need our defensive coordinator back!

There are two ways to look at this.
1) He's struggling because DD is here and putting pressure on him and he's not responding well. This is the one I don't like to believe.
2) He's struggling and would be no matter if DD was here or not and we have the luxery of plugging in a hot DD while Roscoe is working things out. This is the way I like to think about it.
To be honest, he has a couple weaknesses that I think may deter him from being an elite player. First, he's not a great athlete - yes he is long but he lacks lateral quickness and can't jump that great (his long wingspan helps with the lack of jumpiing but not as much with the lateral quickness). Second, his lack of being able to take a man of the dribble. I think he will develop and be a good player and important piece to the team, however I wish Moe Harkless would not have decomitted and gone to SJ (I'd take Harkless over Daniels - Harkless is going to be an absolute stud and one of the top collegiate players in the next year or two). If we continue to have quick guards that can penetrate and big men that force teams inside - he will be very effective in hitting the open 3 which I look forward to.His passing ability.
