Is it me or is this guy being way underutilized @ UNC? He should be getting way more PT/touches in my opinion. I believe he is a better overall player than bullock and his Jumper is just as good IMO
I disagree that he's better than Bullock. Bullock is the better ball-handler, passer, defender, shooter and overall decison maker.
Hairston still has a lot to work on, especially his handle and shot selection.
He played his first two games with flu like symptons and against Long Beach finally played a good game. There is no reason this guy shouldn't be a star. Nice handles, very athletic, strong body and a picture perfect jumpshot. He just needs to really focus. Defenders only guard him for the 3 because he is in love with that shot, but he has the ability to create, however he just doesn't do it. His focus and driving are what are holding him back from reaching his potential. If he had the focus of MKG the guy would be a top 5 pick this year.
Siggy the thing is he can handle the ball, he just doesn't do it. Look at his highlights from the NC Pro-Am over the summer. He looked like James Harden.
