    Didn't a few experts say the same thing before last season?

    Last year experts were saying he’d emerge as a power big man for us to go along with Brimah. This kid is a bust. Period.

    Rothstein said he looked good in practices the past couple of years as well, when the lights came on for real it was a different story

    I don't know much about Evan Daniels accept whatever credibility he had is now gone.

    Well ...

    I'm the contra. Kid has the body and some sincerely strong physical skills - including good hands. His question mark ... BIG ... is his heart and desire to be good.

    If he was still being coached by Rick Pitino, then yeah, maybe he would turn into something different than what he was at UConn. But I don't see that happening now that he's being coached by these two guys for the foreseeable future:

    Enoch has a basketball body, good hands, and some decent moves.

    He had no lateral speed and couldnt seem to get enough game reps to learn to finish, even when the move itself looked pretty.

    Has the potential if anyone can get him to work hard.

    Remember when someone said last week he had the moves of Kevin McHale? Good times.

    But that was before we learned McHale is a clown! So maybe it is true!?

    I was pretty positive a year off was going to do him a lot of good. Can't imagine the environment at Louisville being great for growth right now though.

    Hard to imagine him being able to help a stacked Louisville team this year when he could barely help our decimated Huskies last year.

    I think it is more than that. Missing bunnies and dunks are not great attributes. Also, defense can be learned, with desire as you note, but it is not easy. He is way way behind.

    But why does Pitino have this rep with big men? Dieng?
    Ville fans have been complaining about the development of their big men.

    That was me, and it was a bit of hyperbole/sarcasm that nobody caught on to.

    I didn't bother to clarify because it was just as funny to watch people respond with disgust.

    Plain and simple -
    IT'S THE HEART
    The kid showed little desire on the court, he took plays off on the offensive end, was caught off guard on passes and assignments, rarely fought for a rebound and when he was on the bench, from my seats at HCC, I saw him goofing off with Durham and one of the walk ons many times.
    Yes defense can be taught. However, in order to improve on the deficiencies, you need to want to work on them - desire is what was/is lacking - it is almost impossible for someone who is claiming to work on something to not get better if they have the physical tools - and looking at SE's size and some of the things he did show on the offensive end - he had physical tools.
    I hope things work out for him but truth be told - he is in a far worse position now than the day before he walked off the Storrs campus.

    Funny Harden and Enoch both have an aversion to defense.

    He either didn't have a clue on defense or he was just too slow laterally or maybe a combination of both.
