    My bad. Didn't convey that very well. So if you take a look at Vic's career progression his shooting / 3pt shooting has progressed steadily every year. He obviously took a major jump last season and scored 1.3 points per shot and took 17.9 shots per game which banked him 23.1ppg. That was the key part I left out and where the 15-15.5 shots per game came from. My mistake. We're probably a year or two away from his prime, so for him not to break 22 points per game he would have to take fewer shots than last season and/or regress in efficiency. He should still have a level or two to jump so if he's at 22 something definitely went wrong. I don't think there's a chance in hell of that happening. It's more probable that he approaches 20 shots and maintains his %'s and maybe slightly lowers them rather than the team taking shots away from him. I think he can max out around 50%, 40%, and 85% (47, 37, and 80 last season) on about 15/16 shots but I don't think he'll do that because he's young, it's his team, and he has a point to prove so I'm expecting closer to 20 shots. I think 24 is the 'real' O/U.

    Another interesting column that would take some legwork/research to complete is all the former Hoosiers playing for a living outside of the NBA. I'm curious about Hulls, Sheehey, Blackmon, Watford, Verdell Jones, Zeisloft, Robert Johnson, McSwain and Tim Priller.

    Completely agree on Simmons. I didn’t mean he isn’t a legit super star, he’s a phenomenal player. But his biggest weakness, lack of shooting, is a huge, huge weakness. Even with the great passing, court vision, length, etc., he’s manageable for good defenses with length because he’s not a shooter.

    I'm confused...your first sentence and last sentence seem to be in conflict?
  8. Not at all surprised that Will Wade would be involved. He went from nowhere to a monster class. Ticks me off how coaches try to leapfrog the competition by cheating instead of putting in the time and effort to get there the right way.

    Just ran some goofy numbers and it's going to be almost impossible for Vic to not break 22 PPG. Points per shot by year.. 1.29 1.14 1.185 1.185 1.179 He'd have to take around 15-15.5 shots a game and that's never going to happen.

    Agree with you on the Sixers being worse. I think they'll take the 4 seed with Indy 3. Simmons is a weird one for sure. I have a different take on him (we're both still educated guessing right now). I think he's going to be a legitimate star in the league and he'll break out this season. That's a fair shout on the deluded stat line, but I think he's got the IT factor and his stats are more 'legitimate' than say Westbrooks (probably harsh on Russ but I think you get the idea of what I'm alluding too. It's insane how good he is considering he won't even attempt a three and we still have no idea what his real shooting hand is. Mind boggling stuff.

    Nice Write-Up on Hunter

    I look forward to seeing him hit the hardwood.
  13. Just my take. Football is a completely different animal. The rules are why. The rosters are why. I imagine there is corruption there, but not like CBB.

    So, my one game into the season overreaction, the Sixers are worse than last season. When losing Illyasova and Belinelli, they lost the shooting that made them so effective the second half of last season. Unless Fultz somehow turns into a legit star, which I don’t think is going to happen, they have some real problems. Not enough reliable scoring and playmakers, and they don’t have a single guard, in a guards league, that scares you. To me Ben Simmons is weird. He’s a freak athlete, he’s incredibly skilled with the ball and he puts up monster stat lines, but as an opponent he doesn’t scare me at all. It’s sort of like Matt Ryan, he’s going to retire with huge numbers, maybe some better than Manning, Brady and Brees, but when playing the Falcons I’m not like, “oh crap, we have to go against Matt Ryan, we don’t have a chance!”

    Preseason Award Watch List for Romeo

    Ok, Edwards is on the Bob Cousy award preseason watch list.
  19. I cannot help but wonder if / when this would spill over into the real cash cow - football. I am probably crazy, but I would love to see SEC football be brought down knowing what has transpired with recruiting in that conference. I know football is a different animal as far as shoe companies involvement goes.... however, with the comfort and complacency of the filth involved in basketball recruiting accepting "this is how it works", how can football be any different?
