Say his AAU team is Adidas and he wants to go to a Nike school. What does he lose?

He'll improve his D while on that first round contract.
Why don't people understand that you don't need to be a fully polished product for it to be a great decision to go pro?

In theory, MSU should be really good. Senior PG, Valentine and Dawson decent complementary pieces, two top 20 picks. But looking back, that's not an impressive preseason. Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Texas are solid wins. But nothing to write home about. UNC waxing them at home isn't a good look. Struggled against Columbia and Oakland. Empirical evidence suggests a healthy MSU isn't a final four favorite.

So simple minded. He gets a scholarship for one year. What he brings to Northwestern is more than the value of that scholarship. If a normal student can benefit from his likeness, why can't Kain?

You'll see Michigan run that wide pindown 4 times in the first 6 minutes. Designed to put Stauskas's defender in a bind. You see Iowa denying the catch, which opens up the backcut (which Michigan didn't really exploit). But anyway, Stauskas by the third time seeing it has figured out how to use White's positioning against him.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Objectives on offense||
For the most part, Beilein runs three sets. Two shuffle series and the Princeton-based chin series. Then a ton of set plays that are offshoots off those.
You'll see this when two players run through to the baseline after the initial pass to the wing. The point is to isolate two options, one cutting to the basket off a guard's screen. The other, a screen the screener action for a 3. This can later evolve into a PnR opportunity.
This is one player cycling through. Then pass to the top of the key with emphasis on exploiting the pin down screen. This is the same play that got GR3 open for jumpers against Wisconsin. And that Pittsnogle would pop out for 3's with WV (expect to see Donnal doing that next year). If those are defended well, you'll see a backscreen for an alleyoop, then some dribble handoff action.
An immediate pass to the center. Two main actions initially. A backcut, and then a fade screen for the guy throwing that potential backcut. This is actually diagrammed differently than how it's run now.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Not the first||
Sims and McLimans were attempts to find a Pittsnogle-esque contributor. Smotrcyz too in a way. Hopefully Donnal is better on defense than the three.

A decent way into the season, even passably playing in his time out there. Little chance at return too. Wish we could know what the actual diagnosis and surgery were, just from a curiosity standpoint.

Then again, any matchup between two West teams will have some drama. Even include Utah with the required Trey watching.

Takes less dumb shots when you account for a 3 point gunner on the perimeter at the 3.
With the contract, he can't be traded. Drummond isn't going anywhere. Monroe is the logical choice.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||I read the 20 points higher||
I read the 20 points higher thing and thought you were implying Jennings is much more efficient. He's not, and this season isn't varying from his career averages. In a thread where you're citing adjusted +/- and WS/48, you might not want to use hyperbole to accentuate your points.

brandon jennings ts% .493

Both are inefficient. Jennings isn't playing great by any stretch of the imagination. His bulk stats might be decent, but that's not how basketball is evaluated these days. Sorry. He's also the worst PnR defender in the league.
