    Were Not just a PG away..

    Everyone has been stating how needy we are for a PG but in my opinion we also need a center. If we had a center that could play on the inside just for rebounding it would allow royce white to move to the 4 which is clearly his natural position, and also move Ejim out to the 3 where he is clearly a natural for.

    Royce is a big boy, but he's no center. He needs to be at PF.

    You realize that Railey has been suspended, right?

    I think Railey will help out the **** poor perimeter defense we displayed last night. If you have a near 7 footer sitting under the rim, it allows more room for error.

    Re: Were Not just a PG away..

    Royce is about 6'7/270 even undersized with length for the NBA PF but certainly great for ISU. I like Booker at the 5 with Royce. The issue IMO is a lack of glue guys and role players. Plenty of guys that want to score the ball though. I'm excited to have talent on the team again. Certainly excited about the one/two punch of White/Clyburn next year, but I am concerned we won't have the glue guys to go around them. The PG situation fixes itself next year with Lucious.

    Why do you think Lucious is the answer at PG?

    Re: Were Not just a PG away..

    If we were a center away Fred Hoiberg would have recruited a center at some point in the history of him coaching here, but he hasn't. It is not in his plan to have a true center. /thread

    Well Railey actually played last season, and from everything I have seen, the coaching staff feels he has made great progression into this season.

    If I were Hoiberg, I might start Railey just to prove a point.

    ...and also to try anything different. Give Melvin a break and a chance to come off the bench.

    It sounds silly, but a Point Guard literally would solve just about everything. And I'm not being sarcastic, at all.

    Really? Because our biggest problem right now is our defensive strategy. Unless the pg is going to game plan with Fred, we're still going to have problems.

    Having watched both those players, do you think you're making a point or just being an ***?

    Re: Were Not just a PG away..

    Point being how does adding a very average big help anything? Just because he is tall?

    Like Justin Hamilton?
