because he really does not do anything of use on the basketball court.
Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Well next time he can lead from the bench because he shouldn't be on the floor.
Your Heading should be "CJ Lee must have incredible ORAL skills.
Ah yes, it's "shit on the walk-on" time.
Look, lay of CJ. He is what he is. He's our best on-the-ball guard defender and he runs the offense under control.
Everyone wants Grady to be the guy getting minutes, including me, but when he still can't control the mental mistakes on defense he isn't going to see the floor. Especially against a team the shoots lights out from the perimeter.
Uh, because he walked on. I have no idea what you're trying to say.
Like you are better? Get off his back he is a walk-on( Im pretty sure) getting minutes because he works hard and plays d.
Cj plays because we have no one at the position besides him and Grady. Michigan's two glaring needs on the basketball team is their lack of talent at point guard and center. And a lot of times our boys lose because of the deficiences at these two positions. I just pray that Darius Morris is a considerable upgrade at the position.
I just think it's odd that you want to lay the blame on CJ Lee's 5:1 TO ratio (admittedly, 0/5 shooting) when the team shot 32% from the floor.
If you want to explain why we lost, it would go something like this:
1. We shot horrendously (this is nothing new if you've watched the past 10 games) - admittedly, Lee's 0/5 was a contributing factor here - but so was Sims' 5/14, Harris' 3/13, and Perry's 2/7.
2. We got screwed in the final 50 seconds of the game.
3. Somehow, a team THAT PLAYED THEIR STARTING FIVE THE WHOLE GAME (only 7 minutes went to the bench) somehow was fresher and stronger in overtime.
4. We got to the line 3 times in the entire game (partially shitty reffing)
Furthermore, if you wade through the past 6 games, you'll notice that the damage that opposing PG's have done to us has curbed significantly since Grady starting riding the bench.
I guess that I just have a problem with describing college kids playing at maximum effort as "useless".
Further, Lee had a tough game yesterday as, plainly, he was too short to guard Kelly. However, he succeeded in completely shutting down the guys he guarded in the previous 4 games, and he's probably Michigan's best on-the-ball defender. Finally, his 5/1 assist to turnover ratio was pretty good.
How does "our best defender" = "very little"? He had a bad game against Iowa, all told, but my objection is to you using the single game as a reason he shouldn't play. He's essentially a bizarro version of Kevin Grady - except he's a much better defender than Grady is an offensive player.
He plays defense, breaks the press and distributes the ball. That's his job and he does it better than anyone else Michigan has. Lay off.
