Kentucky vs Baylor Game Thread
man, Davis is a warrior , he checks in!!!
Why would you check in? You're up by 20 and you're going to put your future on the line like this? I'd rather he sit out a couple more minutes until he feels 100%.
yes it's actually a bad decision you can see he still feels big pain but i was talking only about his character kid just wants to play so bad
Yeah, I know what you mean. He really wants to be out there and show his team that he's there for them.
Yes Bosh has developed well but he has always been a go-to scorer and was very efficient scoring from all areas of the floor in his time at GT, Davis meanwhile has yet to prove he's go-to guy.
Baylor is a poor mans Kentucky, if I'm down 19 in my last game of the year I'm fightin til the end
The only reason he's not the go-to-guy is because that team is so stacked. I mean seriously, who is Kentucky's go-to-guy? MKG could be the go-to-guy. T-Jones can. Anthony Davis can. Teague can. Hell, even Doron Lamb at times.
After this game, I would not draft Perry Jones in the lotto, this is the last straw.
Jones showing random flashes
Perry Jones REAL agressive while Anthony Davis has ONE LEG.
Lol what a joke man
The Baylor guards have finally started passing him the ball, and he's being very aggressive with the ball when he gets it...The TO's he had in the 1st half were because he tried to pass out when he should have taken it strong...
When Perry plays aggressive he's A top teir prospect, keep hating mother &$#%#&@! because Perry is over powering Davis down low...He's helping Baylor make a run here in the 2nd half...
Keep on talking trash, he's going top 10 if you like it or not
Lol damn you mad? I've never denied his talent, he's just soft.
Perry Jones is averaging 7 points during the tourney
Suck on that lol better yet explain that.
And FYI, he's still performing very well given the circumstance...Scouts are actually very Impressed with his play in the 2nd half...
the only thing that is keeping Baylor in the game is Fouls and Davis's knee
I'm not about to argue with you about PJ3, I'll wait til he's 25 lmaoooooooo
When Perry Jones is 25 he'll be an NBA player making millions of dollars, where will you be youngdave???
Jones and Acy are The only Baylor players that have made any Impact, Jackson has only scored on broken plays...
what game are you watching??? Did you see Jones overpower Davis on 3 possessions and hit a nice fade away post shot over Terrence Jones, what about that nice pass to get Heslip his only good looking shot thus far???
I forgot you're head is up your ass and you cant see...
FYI I stopped watching the Game, my kids want to watch Dora The Explorer...
U da man scarecrow! Hahah
Why is Davis still in the game with less than 2 minutes to go and a 14 point lead? What do the coaches think happened to him that made him clutch he knee in pain? He didn't bang it against something on that play. If that trainer thinks he fixed something by rubbing some icy-hot ointment on Davis's knee, that trainer needs to go back to school.
I know Kentucky only goes 7 deep, but seriously, they still can't get Davis out of the game?
I guess the thought is he only has 3 games left in his career as far as Kentucky is concerned.
You know someone is taking it to heart when they ask you what will you be doing when your 25 lol butthurt, but for your INFO when i'm 25 hopefully i'll be overseas playing basketball, pretty good at bball just in case you wanted to know might even play in the NBA one day who knows.
I'm not commneting on PJ3 my minds already made up on him, I've seen the same thing for TWO YEARS straight.
Too bad none of Jones's production came in the 1st half when Baylor needed it
"You know someone is taking it to heart when they ask you what will you be doing when your 25 lol butthurt"
Yeah, I know right? It's obvious he'll be maing millions of dollars, that doesn't stop critics. Hell, LeBron James has made hundreds of millions and is still criticized. How does that change anything? That argument is baseless, senseless, and unimportant.
UK always makes teams look like they aren't that good on defense or not that good on offense.
Duke you say Davis only scores in those ways but he actually has post moves. UK offens is based on movement though. Also I think Shawn Marion has made a great living doing what you say Davis can only do. A Allstar for a couple years as a matter of fact.
Scarecrow it is PJ3's fault. He plays too soft most of the time and has a low motor. If he doesn't get the ball why doesn't he go get the offensive rebound? Post up harder or flash to the ball. These are things stars do. hell Acy isn't as skilled but he goes hard and depends the ball and posts up hard
Exactly he taking it personal, it's just a debate, lol Perry Jones doesn't even know who he is,but he over there taking this personal about me talking bout a basketball player he likes.
Harrison Barnes is a better prospect than Terrance Jones because he has a more complete offensive game and is not a tweener. I think T-Jones has very good potential and would be a great 6th man in the NBA a la Thad Young, but Harrison Barnes has the ability to come in as a starter from day one and drop 20 PPG within a year or two of being in the NBA.
And I know those are what the scouts say, but I think Terrence Jones can do the same thing while being more versatile in defense, post game, passing, etc.
While I do agree that Barnes is a better prospect, I dont necessarily by that Jones is a tweener. I think he is a legit PF but will be able to play SF as well.
I wouldnt get too overly hyped about college play. Roy Williams system and lack of half court game is not suited to Barnes offensive style....he will be better in the NBA with spacing and man defense. He likely will be a 20 plus scorer in the NBA. Even in that system, where he thrives in transition but struggles in half court....he has not been dominant but very consistent. Some players are just going to be better pros.
Jones will be good in his own right but a different type player....I still dont like how Jones reacts and disappears sometimes when the game is not in his teams favor.....whereas a player like MKG tends to be in beast mode all the time and actually MKG goes even harder when his team is in jeopardy.
THANKS FOR THIS THREAD!!!!!!!!!
i missed the game smh.....
I don't see Jones has a "legit" Power Forward because I don't think he can play the four on a full-time basis. What I mean by that is I do not see Jones starting at PF and playing 30+ mpg at that position in the NBA. Same thoughts on Jones playing the 3 full-time. However, I think that this can be a very positive thing for an NBA team. I mentioned Thad Young earlier because I see some similarities in both of their abilities to use their height/quickness combo as a mismatch in the pros.
Honestly, Jones and Barnes are not that similar of pospects. One is a 3/2 while the other is a 4/3 and they both have different things that they do well.
Jackson has bad shot selection. Don't like drew as a offensive coach. 17 and 8 for PJIII not bad. Would have told him to jack more. His best tourney game vs best competition. Don't understand the hate on that kid.
I think that Jones has pretty much every skill that Barnes has except even some more. I am a real big Barnes fan as UNC is always my favorite team, but I've been a huge fan of this Kentucky team this year as well. Thad Young isn't really too similar to Terrence Jones besides that they are both athletic and play the 3/4. The thing is with Thad Young, he doesn't have the perimeter skills for the 3, and doesn't have the size for the 4, thus leaving him as a tweener. It is different when you have the size to play the PF, but play the small forward because you have tremendous versatility. Thad Young measured in at 6'5 and 3/4 and 210 pounds. So that is a 6'7 210 player. Jones is 6'9 and 250-255. That is DEFINITELY not an undersized PF. To call him a tweener is crazy. He can play both positions, but he is by no means a tweener. If any comparison would be fair I guess it would be Derrick Williams, although Jones is way better defensively. I mean I don't want to say that Barnes is overhyped because I've been a HUGE fan for a while, but he has disappointed me slightly. He didn't improve over the offseason as much as I would have wanted. That being said, I still see him easily as a top 5 pick and am not saying Jones is better than him, because I think Barnes skills will translate well to the league, but I think they are about the same. I have Davis first, MKG second, and then I have Drummond, Jones, and Barnes tied for my third prospect. I know it is not a popular pick, but it is one I will hold true to and believe. I love Kidd-Gilchrist as well, even more than Jones, it just seems like sometimes there are biases that fans subconsiously believe. Like I see all the time how people say that Kidd-Gilchrist never drifts out of games, but Jones does all the time. This is simply not true. I see many games where Kidd-Gilchrist will pretty much drift out of the game and see him end a half with 2 points or even 0. The reality is EVERY young prospect not names Anthony Davis has games where they drift out of. But to claim Jones drifts out all the time and MKG never does is complete bogus, because I watched EVERY SINGLE Kentucky game all year long thoroughly and I will tell you that MKG and Terrence Jones have been equal in this department and pretty much equal overall, MKG getting the advantage being a year younger.
Not scoring doesn't mean you drift out of games. MKG may not score sometimes but he still hustles,plays tough defense and rebounds. You must not watch many UK games early in the season because Jones drifted out a couple of times where he didn't play defense or offense nor did he rebound (first Indiana game is a great example) but near the end of the regular season until now he has stepped it up as well as the rest of the team
"To someone who said that Perry didn't get enough touches. In this game he got many touches the problem is instead of making something he just kicks the ball out. They make ISO for him to play but he just kicks out every time. I haven't had the opportunity to watch him much but from what I have seen he is just awfully soft both physically and mentally."
its been happening!
Some of you would make poor scouts. I suspect NBA scouts like what they see in PJIII. I look forward to this next season. Liking and playing basketball does not mean you know how to scout. PJIII is going top 5.
PJ3 needs to fall to a team in the late lotto/teens. He'd go great in Phoenix if Nash returns, but he's going to need the right system and organization to be anything but Tim Thomas 2.0.
