ucla shabazz chemistry

i feel their chemistry offensively and defensively is very bad , i watched the game today against San Diego State and there were several times shabazz had good looks but the team wouldnt pass it to him. It frustrates me to see such a geat offensive talent barely getting the ball. Jordan adams was the only one with a good game as ucla is now 5-3.

Do you get the feeling

Do you get the feeling Shabazz is just playing and waiting for the NBA draft next year?

Well

I'm pretty sure he will be an one done but if he wants to be the first pick in this draft he's got to get the ball more from his teammates, it's not like he doesn't have talent to put up numbers he's just not getting enough looks.

kyle anderson has a lot of

kyle anderson has a lot of work to do. Bigs are pretty soft. Defense lacks focus. The best thing about the bruins this year is jordan adams. Im very dissapoined right now. But give SD State the credit for winning this one and GTown the credit for that win. Both those teams are better then ucla and made more plays. Blowing the 18 point second half lead vs cal poly was just bruins beating themselves.

I agree

I've watched them play a couple times this year, and Shabazz really doesn't touch the ball enough. its lots of times when he's isolated or wide open and they go the other way. It makes me wonder if their is something going on inside the locker room or some. Even with the announcements of two players transferring mid season. Does anybody else think its something else going on besides lack of chemistry on the court?

I have

I have also thought of that as a possibility , he looked really frustrated whenever he came out to the bench or when they didn't give him the ball when he had a good look. All I knowis that he should be getting a lot more touches if this team wants to improve offensively , defensively communication seems to be an issue. However when I saw shabazz have the ball , he was putting it on the floor much more and he created for himself , that was the one thing I questioned about him.

UCLA & Kentucky seem to be

UCLA & Kentucky seem to be having similar problems....Chemistry wise,defensively,offensively and trying to find out who the leaders and role players are........

But Jamaal Franklin is proving to people he's a 1st rounder..Last night he looked like the 2nd Coming of Vince Carter......

He should be getting the ball

He should be getting the ball more. He went 7-11 I believe on mostly contested shots. Larry Drew III needs to stop shooting the ball. When UCLA was down by 6 I believe with around 2 minutes left LD3 airballs a 3 pointer with Shabazz open. New the game was over at that moment.
