    Ejim is No Small Forward

    Ejim is a great rebounder, making garbage baskets, and shooting 3 pointers. But, he has absolutely no business trying to dribble the ball on fast breaks or driving to the hoop. He has no handle and there's a high probability he will turn the ball over take a bad shot by just throwing the ball up there and hoping it goes in.

    On the play he dribbled the ball off his foot, I was yelling "don't dribble, don't dribble." My brother said "too bad he can't hear you,". He is hurting us by trying to do too much outside of his skill set.

    you have obviously not watched any of our games this year. Ejim can and will continue to dribble the ball, it's essential to our offense.

    He could hop on one leg for the entire game for all I care if he still pulled in 18 points and 9 rebounds.

    Re: Ejim is No Small Forward

    I agree with you to an extent. I to was screaming, "don't dribble!" right before the ball off the foot incident. However him faking and driving opens up the 3 for him later which he has proven he can hit.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Against his match ups, it is in his wheelhouse. Silly thread

    Re: Ejim is No Small Forward

    He's been a decent ball handler this year actually. In the past he wasn't good, but so far this year he's been pretty good.

    Also, tonight on the play you're talking about, he was being guarded by a PG, so that's not a great match up for him to dribble on.

    This is just plain stupid. If he wouldn't have dribbled the ball off his foot this wouldn't even be a thread.

    And you could see how disappointed he was when he turned it over. I don't think we see him make that mistake much this season.

    That is probably the error there, though Melvin still got a step on him . Just basically an accident. Nothing more

    You could tell he was pressing a bit to much tonight trying to bring the team back.

    Re: Ejim is No Small Forward

    Also, one time, I saw Georges miss a bunny after he made a three. He shouldn't take those bunnies just threes. I saw him with an open layup and I was screaming for him not to take it. He couldn't hear me then he missed it and it was bad.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Ejim is No Small Forward

    ****** almighty, it depends who is guarding him and how. If he has a 6'8 guy guarding him on the wing and trying to take away the 3, he better be putting that damn ball on the floor and getting to the hoop cause those guys can't guard him, that has been shown over and over again...a smaller quicker guy that wants to take the 3 away, he can just go post up.

    yes, once in awhile he turns it over...get over it, he touches it every possession for a reason and he plays 40 minutes, it is going to happen

    All the guy does is get double doubles, has the most complete game of anyone we have had in years, and people still *****. Anyone notice he is now shooting 85% from the line now too, add that to the list of things he is good at.

    Re: Ejim is No Small Forward

    The other thing here, we lose that game if Melvin doesnt put the ball on the floor and get to the hoop and shoot ten free throws. you can't jsut cherry pick possessions.
