    Gottlieb comments on Tinsley

    Doug Gottlieb on the radio here in KC today. He mentioned how good LE was at getting Tinsley open looks in their offense. Gottlieb said Tinsley couldn't shoot unless he was coming off screens or posting up his guy and rolling out for mid range jumpers. From what I remember, he was kind of streaky but he could shoot the three. Anyway, I recall him being a decent shooter... better than Gottlieb was saying. Gottlieb did say Tinsley had a sick handle and he was huge, making it impossible to turn him over.

    I ran into him and Kantrail Horton at Crown Center during the Big 12 tournament. I was surprised at how tall Tinsley was. I'm 6'1 and he was a good 2-3 inches taller than me with long arms. His wingspan had to be 6'5 or better. Horton was built like a truck. Still hard to believe Tinsley didn't have more success in the NBA.

    tinsley had a very flat jump shot.. wasnt a consistent shooter at all, but didnt need to be. he was just unstoppable at getting to the rim.

    Re: Gottlieb comments on Tinsley

    Tinsley's NBA career mostly got derailed by his off-court stuff. He was a streaky shooter in college, I wouldn't call him that good of a shooter really. His game was mostly driving to the basket and playing tough defense while making some unbelievable passes sometimes.

    I remember Larry saying he was going to have to wait till JT left so he could get his son to stop emulating Tinsley's no knee bending style of shooting free throws too.

    Re: Gottlieb comments on Tinsley

    Yeah, he was a mediocre shooter. I seem to remember him being pretty streaky but it didn't matter because he could get to the hole.

    Re: Gottlieb comments on Tinsley

    Tinsley had shooters around him. His driving and ball handling created shots for them. There was really no reason for him to shoot (although I don't remember him being very good at it either).

    Depends on how you define success. He was pretty financially successful, even getting paid just to stay away from the team for one year. I never got the feeling Tinsley really cared that much about improving his game. He was one of the best point guards to ever come through the B12 though.

    Re: Gottlieb comments on Tinsley

    Tinsley wasnt a great shooter by any stretch. Decent shooter at best.
    But he was a wizard at ball-handling and passing. I dont watch every college game, but I never ever see anyone in college doing the things he did with the ball.
    A lot of the reason Fizer had monster numbers was because he had Jamaal Tinsley running the Point.

    I think he had a solid NBA career. One of the best NBA careers to come out of ISU at least. Injuries and off court really kept it from being more.

    That's a delicate way to put it...

    Re: Gottlieb comments on Tinsley

    JT really improved his 3pt shooting from his Jr. to Sr. year. He went from 24% to 38% (which is certainly respectable). Otherwise he was an unimpressive shooter. Despite that fact, he is still the best PG we've ever had.

    Rondo's game reminds me of Tinsley. Now Rondo is an all star so different levels of course. Same acrobatic passing and get to the rim ability. Incredible defenders. Makes you wonder what Tinsley could have done on this Celtic's team. Oh well... slow day at the office.

    JT made 5 threes against OU at Hilton. That being said, he wasn't a shooter by any stretch. The ball was a yo-yo in his hands.
