    Jameel McKay

    He's taking some time to answer questions from fans and for those who don't have twitter I'll summarize it for those interested.

    Q: How often do you shoot the 3?
    A: I'll shoot them as long as its accepted. It's been the biggest improvement in my game.

    Q: Are you looking to put on some weight for next year? How much?
    A: Yes and 15-20 pounds.

    Q: When is the earliest you can play?
    A: Hopefully right away

    Q: What is your biggest strength?
    A: my overall versatility.

    Q: Who is the hardest worker on the team and who's impressed you the most in practice?
    A: Abdel Nader

    Q: Why did you choose ISU?
    A: Best situation to get me to the NBA

    Q: Are you more dominant on offense or defense?
    A: I am a 2 way player.

    Q: How hard is it not being able to go out there and help Iowa State?
    A: Probably the hardest thing of my life.

    Q: What NBA player would you compare yourself too?
    A: I don't really know, I can just say that I am skilled.

    Q: Hoiberg loves having forwards who can handle the ball and it even bring it up the court. Wll you be a rebound it and bring it up yourself type of player (coast to coast)
    A: You will see that ! Been working hard on it.


    It's nothing groundbreaking just some things in the point of view of McKay. If he gets that waiver to play right away that will be HUGE.

    Think Nader comes off the bench next year, but man, Nader, Hogue, McKay and Niang. I like.

    Re: Jameel McKay

    Georges then can play the position he was made for.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Jameel McKay

    As of January 1, I think our lineup will be:

    McKay
    Hogue
    Niang
    Thomas
    Morris

    This of course is not factoring in anyone Fred will be bringing in off the recruiting trail. Say he brings in Vaughn, we could have a starting 5 of
    McKay
    Hogue
    Niang
    Vaughn
    Morris

    First guys off the bench: Nader, Thomas, Long, SDW, Custer...not too shabby

    Re: Jameel McKay

    Nader will be the best player on the floor next year, no way he doesn't start. Honestly if we want our best lineup starting McKay should also be out there... The odd man out would have to be Hogue or maybe even as crazy as it sounds Niang... But it will likely come down to Hogue or McKay for that last spot even though Niang is easily the least talented of the group.

    Re: Jameel McKay

    McKay
    Niang
    Nader
    Vaughn
    Morris

    That would be ideal for me. Hogue brings instant energy off the bench and Thomas hopefully is improved and adds instant offense with solid defense...

    Niang is not the least talented of the group. In fact, he is more talented because of his limited athletic ability. He's averaging 15 per game as a Sophomore. Those other three still have a lot to prove.

    Not for national for respect. Maybe just for respect around Ames but right now Niang is the best of the 4.

    Maybe I should have said least physically talented.

    But what is he so great at exactly?

    Great handle for a post player, 3pt shooting, creating space in the post where there is none, making contested shots, avoiding shotblockers, finishing in creative ways, reading pick and roll, extremely talented passer, great leader, elite spin move, swiss army knife of post moves, ability to finish with both hands, unstoppable hook shot with either hand, court vision....

    Off the top of my head.

    Niang will be our best player next year, and there is no question about that IMO. If we get Vaughn it is no guarantee that he starts off that hot or completely ready for D1 ball. He would obviously be more talented when it comes to NBA prospects but Niang is built for the college game and if you told me we had to lose Niang to get Vaughn I would choose Niang.

    Yes. What makes him so much better than the other four? Just the fact he's playing this year?

    Don't worry I'm ready for everyone to tear me a new one, got it for saying Houge is a better rebounder than Ejim too.

    Kid has one terrible game and people start throwing him under the bus, he's won several games down the stretch for us this year with clutch basket after clutch basket.
