Thomas is transffering to New Mexico because he wants to get in the game on offense. We're not lacking family values, WE'RE LOADED!!!!!

First off, I don't see how you came up with slow. His ball handling has went down. He's a natural point guard whose ball handling was great when he got to Ann Arbor. During his freshman year he showed good ball handling and played point for the Wolverines, and led in scoring. After Coach recruited smaller players(Stu Douglas, Zac Novak, Manny became a forward.
The system takes away from Manny's game. The kid wants to go to the hole, and does so effectively. But on a team without great 3-point shooters like Jon Diebler (43%) or Kyle Singler (38%), but the coach wants to shoot tons of 3's, he takes a lot of shots that he doesn't want but fit with the scheme or lack thereof of the system.
If that's slow, how does he to the basket so easily? And when the "natural point" goes to the basket, why do players not go with him and try to get a layup? In the NBA those are potential assists, that should have been assist in college, too. Instead of getting the layup his team steps behind the 3 point line, now those 2 or 3 defenders KNOW he's shooting it and only have to defense the shot.
Journeyman pro? Like Juwan Howard? Is that a journeyman? He lives good. Manny would even accept that, as would a lot of people with pro aspirations.
