Freshman to Sophomore jump
Among many others Cole Adrich is an example of a player who made an enormous jump from his freshman to sophomore season last year. Who are you guys following or looking at to make a similar jump? Ed Davis is probably the popular pick right now. I think Ralph Sampson III and Kemba Walker can make a significant jump. Any incoming sophomores you guys think will burst in the lottery talk for next year or 11'?
I like this post, and I agree on the 2 you listed with Kemba Walker and Ed Davis
I will add Paul George to the mix as well.
Alof of people give Paul George love, but i think Devin Ebanks is gonna make a huge splash into stardom this year....I could see him being Big East Player of the year, his games alot like Gay but a better rebounder
Devin Ebanks.. dudes a monster hell average 10 plus boards.. and will compliment desean butler very well. the muscle of a very good WVU team.
also watch out for mike rosario to make a splash in the big east putting up HUGE numbers
Ebanks is good , but I don't see star qualities in him, plus it's easy to be grab boards in college , that changes in the pros as seen with Durant, and Bealey just to name a few........that's just my opinion though
barely beat me to it lol.. i thinks hes gonna be nice
it was like you read my mind
I know he put together a pretty solid freshman season, but do you guys think he is going to put up monster numbers this year or do you think he's kinda plateaued? I didn't get to watch Georgetown a lot last year and he seems like a pretty intriguing prospect with some serious upside
he will put up better #'s and improve, but we kinda know what to expect from him by now.
I expect Samardo Samuels to have a good season at Louisville this year. I think he realized he needed moves to be a better player in college, because he cant just bulldoze all the time like he did in HS.
The guy everyone is sleeping on but I expect a major jump in production from is Wesley Witherspoon of Memphis. He will be a lockdown defender first and foremost, but he has legit point forward skills and crazy quickness and ridiculous length. He needs to continue to get stronger and work on his jumper, but watch. He will be a 1st round level prospect by 2011, and I'll say "I told you so". haha
Being the focus of the offense I think he will have a great break out sophmore season. Hes big althletic and will gain by not jumping to the pros.
Definitely him, but I also like the future for Malcolm Lee, a guard for UCLA who was on the bench last year because of Holiday and Collison.
I think Ebanks, Davis, Aminu, Witherspoon, Hopson, and Monroe will have breakout years. But I will have to go with Elliot Williams as the player that will have the biggest breakout year. He is very athletic and now that he is at Memphis he should be the go to guy in there offense. He has great athletic ability and he has improved his shot he is my sleeper pick for POY just watch he will surprise everybody on how good he is.
i think greg monroe will and be first team all american as well as player of the year.
Samardo Samuels, Clark and Williams are both in the NBA, He is a big body and a competent scorer. I think he'll be putting up at least 15,8 and 2 next year for Louisville.
dude that looks like Adam Sandler in your pic
Thats me after i shaved my beard into a handle bar mustache. lol
did you do that because you just wanted to mess around, or are you a jew?
U ain't cool unless you pee your pants
I've always thought weird facial hair was kinda funny and my friend is a photographer
haha you look like an artist, you should have put on a beanie
I tried to find a monocle, but those things are hard to find!
how about a turban ?
Oh, thats not a turban, but its this old golf hat my dad sported in the 80's, haha
im stuck between a butler and a painter
haha, I could see that or maybe a second class sea captain
ha didn't think of that..........so is your name Joe? You look like a William in that pic
Joe Wolf was just my favorite bench warmer in the 90's. Dude was a big white guy with a mullet. I actually think he is a CBA coach now, but yeah, William, Allister, Ferdiand, Jean Paul, I could see those haha
hmmmmmm. i think im gonna do one of those pics and dye myself blue like a smurf
dude, that'd be pretty sweet, i say go for it
ok i will,i need a blue bum hat too. it should be up in 3 days
awesome man, i look forward to seeing it...nice usage of "bum hat" too haha
ha , im gonna get on it As Soon As Possible. Man
did any of these guys make a big jump other then aminu and monroe?
Both Samardo Smauels and Welsey Witherspoon broke out my man....so no. Greg Monroe and Aminu weren't the only guys.

Holy Crap! I predicted Samuels would average 15 pts, 8 rbs and 2 blks and he put up 15 pts 7 rbs and I was a little off with 1.1 blks, but damn. not too bad.
Kemba Walker went from averaging 8.9 ppg and 2.9 apg to 14.5 ppg and 5.1 apg he had a big jump
