I think it's still a bit early to evaluate KCP's defensive ability yet. I've watched most Pistons games and while he's an effective one-on-one guy, he still makes a lot of rookie mistakes on both sides of the ball. With that being said, he certainly has the potential to develop into a defensive stopper. His jumper is as pure as any I've seen out of the draft in recent years; he's probably going to shoot around 40% from 3 his whole career. If the Pistons can come out of the draft with an above-average 3-and-D guy, they've definitely made a good pick.
I've also watched my fair share of Jazz games this year, and Trey Burke has made them a completely different team. With him out of the starting lineup, the Jazz started the season 1-12. With him in the lineup, they're 3-3, with a win over Houston and a close game against the Pacers. He's already a good pick-and-roll passer (surprise!), and looks more polished than some veterans. He's still a weak defender; opposing PGs constantly go at him and exploit his size and athletic disadvantages. He also sometimes makes rookie mistakes on the offensive end, though not to KCP's degree. But he's a good 3-point shooter, and I think his pick-and-roll abilities would make him a better long-term fit in the Pistons lineup than Jennings. That's not a knock on Jennings, who has also been an effective distributor this year, but BJ's not going to magically turn into a knockdown shooter any time soon. Jennings is not going to kick his inefficient shooting habits. We all also know that Burke's got intangibles up the wazoo.
KCP has the potential to be a good player, but I think Burke has the potential to be a great player. The combo of Burke + (insert dime-a-dozen SG) would be better long-term IMO than Jennings-KCP. A good SG is easier to find than a good PG, and I don't think KCP will be as good of a SG as Burke is a PG.

... is that he's sending the message that people shouldn't make a big deal out of him taking these official visits. That he will still be solid on M despite checking out other schools.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Probably best...||
... to take his "visits" tweet in that context. I don't think he's going anywhere. Things are bad now but he's remained solid through most of the tumult this year.

Prior to the "official visits" tweet, Peppers retweeted a tweet about a Bama recruit who took official visits to Ole Miss, Notre Dame, and UCLA, but was still solid with Bama...

for providing some perspective. Hopefully those who don't back away from the ledge now meet the same fate as those who jumped off after the Penn State loss last year.

... we all gathered to watch a big Michigan game occurring across the country? Watching the Alabama game at the Big House didn't end well. As a superstitious man, I don't think I'll be making it to Crisler for this one.

And I don't know if it showed up in the stats or not, but it seemed like Illinois punished us on the offensive glass when McGary was in. Did anyone else notice this? Are there any stats to back this up?

... McGary's excellence on the glass leads to a better rebounding rage. I always said Morgan needed to work on channeling his anger toward the offensive glass.

Robinson pulls off a 360 dunk in front of the same student section Rodney Williams 360ed in front of vs. North Dakota? Seems like a huge, possibly intentional Eff You to cap off a dominant stretch by this team.
