Kentavious Caldwell Pope
Last five games: ((58FG% - 47 3FG%))........ 20ppg-7rpg-1.6apg-2spg
It will be the Terrence Ross scenario all over again (who i thought was a top 10 prospect way before workouts). If you haven't been watching Georgia lately, Kentavious Caldwell has been improving tons since I last posted that thread down thread, believe it or not.
Shot selection has been great, nice defense, has even become the vocal leader of Georgia which is great to see coming from him since some people question his maturity.
He's one of my favorite prospects in the class. Because of him, the untalented Georgia squad is one of my favorite teams to watch... this guy can put points up in a hurry.
I'm glad his shot selection has gotten better as that was his main flaw, it's amazing he's been scoring so effectively with him being the only legit threat on offense, it's time to put him back in mid to late lotto conversations now.
One of my favorite things about KCP as a prospect is that he runs, jumps, and shoots on his tippy toes, players like that are never 'slow footed' but quick off their feet.
KCP was outstanding vs. Tennesse yesterday, he shot 9-12 and took over late in game, scoring 13 of his 24 points points in the last 9 minutes of the game, to put it away.
He's now shooting a good .465 FG% and .384 3FG% for the season, and is on that ridiculous streak last 6 games; shooting 62 FG% and 50 3FG%.
I imagine that if KCP were on a more heralded team, more people wouldve heard of him. He is quietly having a great season and will be a workout warrior at the combine IMO. Hes a lottery talent.
