    Richards MAY Have NBA Potential But Hes The Worst UK Center In Decades

    Yeah. He was much better to start the season.

    An epic fail by both him and KP to this point.

    Before I leave Id like to see our politics begin to return to the purposes and practices that distinguish our history from the history of other nations,
    I would like to see us recover our sense that we are more alike than different. We are citizens of a republic made of shared ideals forged in a new world to replace the tribal enmities that tormented the old one. Even in times of political turmoil such as these, we share that awesome heritage and the responsibility to embrace it.

    I totally agree, I’ve never seen a dude that long and athletic that not only doesn’t block shots but doesn’t even alter them.

    Agree that Bamba was a huge miss but think were being far too hard on Richards. Product of the Cal era of frosh superstars and a very spoiled fan base. Sometimes find myself doing it, too. I remember Magloire as a frosh mid season in Rupp turn around from point-blank range and throw it over the backboard. Without contact. Richards is more of a normal freshman. Going to need time. Has a nice touch. Shows flashes of excellent post moves, both feet and hands. Capable of being a good free throw shooter. Weakest on defensive switches and help defense. Needs to work on base to shore up defensive glass.

    This applies to most everyone in the paint although Wenyen and PJ are much improved, but just keeping your hands up on D would be a major improvement. I know Cal continually harps on high hands do I know seeing their hands below their waist has to drive him nuts. Those 14-foot wingspans dont do much good with hands down.

    The rebounding bugs me and it’s not just Richards. For a team this tall to rebound as badly as they do is just sad.

    Hands down, man down isn't just a catchy rhyme, it's pretty much what offensive players look at as soon as they catch the ball.

    Richards production is no surprise to me at all. I was pretty sure this is what we would get.

    No I think he means SGA when Quade returns along with Gabriel P.J. Diallo and Knox. With Greene as backup point guard

    Fire KP, can't get it done, all his failure. Well, let's rip an asst instead of Cal for a change

    (edited for attack on a poster)

    I look at the difference in Gabriel and Jones from last year...two players many here said would never get off the bench...and the improvement by PJ so far and I will say Kenny is underpaid. If the DC at LSU is worth $2.5 million, how much is Kenny worth?

    Nick will be a different player in March

    I agree that KP is doing a great job, but I'm not so sure about the other assistants. I think Cal may be looking for replacements after this season for at least one of them.

    Just for the record, I have been a champion of Kenny’s here more so than anyone. I have maintained that he must be the top candidate to replace Cal when he retires.

    Anyone who contributes to our conversations here Knows that.

    KP is great. I miss Stricklands PG tutelage and NBA cred.

    Strickland was only here a brief time

    Guys like Andrew Harrison, Tyler Zulus and DeAron Fox all did well with the current staff. I dont know if Strickland makes a huge difference

    He is not currently a superstar, but I am not sure his stats warrant such criticism

    Nick had 25/15 vs Fort Wayne

    His other 15 games he has 86/76 for 5.7 PPG and 5.1 rpg

    I may have been too harsh but Cal seemingly agrees that he is just not getting much done. Other centers are killing us right now.

    When the LSU center put up crazy numbers and scored at will that was telling.
