    How good was/is Bubu?

    My memory is fading and I can't remember how good Bubu actually was. I know he could create space and get the rim, but was he an outside threat as well? And I'm sure all of this was covered in the other Bubu threads, but didn't want to slog through all those threads to find this out.

    Also, what is the possibility that he ever plays again? Or is just being reinstated enough satisfaction for him?

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    This could be another great long thread!

    Bubu was going to start this year before the transfer of Kane. He had improved his shot and was playing the best ball of his career. How good? Who really knows but he would be giving us minutes and not riding the bench.

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    The best way to look at having Bubu back on the team is that he can give you quality minutes most of the time. However, he tends to make plays some times that are real head-scratchers. In other words, not very consistent. He is solid defensively however.

    I'd argue ONLY because they needed to see what Morris could do as a true freshman - not because Bubu had anything other than bottom of the bench PG skills.

    High energy, solid on ball defender. Very good at drawing fouls and a good FT shooter. Has shown some ability to hit the three, but seemed to be the only guy on the floor without a "green light" the past two years.

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    Is he really going to be getting any minutes though? We have Kane and Morris is really playing well for the PG spot and I don't see Bubu as a SG unless its for defense. I have nothing against him but I just don't see how he fits in this team at this point of the season.

    The Bubu debate is always a good way to see who actually watches and understands whats going on in the games and who just looks at box scores.

    My impression is that it was a self imposed thing

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    Is Bubu starter quality probably not but he is a very solid guy off the bench. I for one would welcome him with open arms as we have a pretty short bench.

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    I don't know if it was true but others have said his 3pt shooting has really improved. They said he was going to start at SG so maybe he is the 3pt threat we need to get us over the top.

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    Did the judge rule that Fred has to play him?

    Re: How good was/is Bubu?

    I have no doubt that he would be a solid addition to his team. The tough part is how the basketball program/athletic department decides to handle it. If they decide he's back, I think we're a better team with him.
