    Did I say everyone was overestimating him? No

    Yeah, check your reading comprehension.

    No, but they have overestimated the reading comprehension of a number of posters.

I love Naz, and I love his aggressive play, but I just don't think the talent is up to par with Bubu, Morris, and Custer.
    I said nothing about who is the better player. I just don't want Bubu getting minutes that Naz currently does, which now, as opposed to preseason, seem to be big lead minutes or junk minutes. Yea, they aren't great minutes, but they are still game experience in the Big 12. Only place I think Bubu will get minutes is maybe those now spent by Clyburn playing the point. And that would require him to be in shape first. Offense just runs better when KL is in and I don't see Bubu facilitating the offense that well. He could give some relief on defense for both KL and Will if he is in shape.

    I don't see where anyone has predicted more than that, so I don't know how "a number" of people are overestimating him, unless that number is zero. I also don't see the need for hostility, but to each his own, I guess.

    Re: return of Bubu

    Last year against Iowa, Palo played 30 minutes, scored 14 points, went to the line 15 times and had a 6/1 assist/TO ratio. If anybody had done that this year, we probably win.

    Re: return of Bubu

    My opinion is that Bubu is a solid role/bench player, and that is it..

    People assuming that he will pick it up where he left off last year is quite interesting. He hasn't played in a game since the tournament. To think he'll go out there and play like he did is ridiculous. It'll take a few games for him to find that form. I guess people that think he will, forget how Chris Allen and KL played in their first few games back on the court after a period of not being out there.

    Which is better than any other guard off the bench other than Tyrus obviously.

    We can hardly say that with certainty without seeing Long play. Due to his hand injury his time was/is limited. But carry on.

    Re: return of Bubu

    I'm not feeling too great about KL feeling under the weather for tonight. Bubu has zero experience even playing with Niang other than the last few weeks, and not much experience with KL and WC except practice last year. Hoping Tech is as bad as everyone says they are.

    Re: return of Bubu

    If KL is limited Clyburn is going to be the point anyway. Bubu probably won't even get in unless we're up 20+ or in serious foul trouble.

    Re: return of Bubu

    It was going to be a lot closer than most were predicting even with KL. Without him it is a toss-up imo.

    So, like I said, at this point. Thats better than anything we have. Healthy or not, Long's potential isn't giving us anything right now. Not a knock on the guy but he hasn't shown much so far. If a guy can't play, how can he be better than a guy who can?

    Long turned the ball over more often than Lucious did when ISU was playing bad teams and his injury wasn't an issue. Historically, Bubu hasn't turned it over that often. That, to me at least, is the key stat.

    i'm witholding judgement on bubu's game until he plays big minutes in a meaningful game against good competition, someone like a UCONN or Kentucky.

    Fail! That will never happen.

    What a windmill of a post.
