SO WHICH IS IT
when people talk up or talk down players there are alot of things said that contradicts something they may have said at a earlier date. examples
player B is a good scorer but isnt scoring much because they have a great scorer(player A) on there team but then say another guy is only scoring as much as they do because they dont have no one else to pass to and they have to shoot alot
player B doesnt get as many rebounds because they have another big man (player A)whos taking some of there rebounds, but doesnt that mean the team is focusing on stopping player A from getting alot of boards which in turn gives the player B more chances to rebound? and if guy A wasnt there wouldnt it make it harder for player B to get more rebounds since the other team can now focus on him?
player B doesnt get alot of assist even though hes been a pg in highschool, hes playing sg in college because player A is a better point guard. some say player b doesnt have the ball much so of course his assists wont be that high which is true but, if thats the case then player B shouldnt average a high number of turnovers since they dont handle the ball as much and is a number 4 option
my point being is alot of people dont look at the whole picture just bits of it.
Im not to sure about Bledsoe of Kentuck either, but can you give the kid a chance to play point guard exclusively. If he goes pro it would be a mistake for his game(financially it could be a good move, not alot of pg's in this class). There is no excuse for his turnovers but give him a full year of point guard at kentucky before you bash on him. Alot of players make major strides between freshman and soph. years and those are guys without john Wall in front of them.
i actually like bledsoe. not for this draft but easily for next years. i can see him as a lotto with the potential to be top 5. thats how much i like him. with that said i think he needs another year first and get used to being a focal point instead of not having to worry about real tough defense since teams are concentrating on wall, cousins and patterson
