    Dear Craig Brackins,

    Please develop a left hand!

    Signed,

    NBA


    **disclaimer** I am no way bashing Craig. I think is a great player who has a ton of tools that are going to make him an NBA player some day. With that said he will have to develop a left hand. All of his shots that get blocked are because he turns over his right shoulder, should shoot it with his left, but shoots it with his right. Than he gets blocked.

    True. But the NBA happily develops skills for players lacking in one factor, if they have all of the others.

    Look at Jeff Hornacek. He was a good shooter at ISU, but with horrible technique. When he got to the Suns, he had to totally relearn how to shoot. I think his career turned out okay, don't you?

    Re: Dear Craig Brackins,

    Not many post players can shoot a LH jump shot from the block. He just needs to set up that shot with a better ball fake to the middle of the lane.

    You won't hear any arguments from me. I think he is an NBA player right now. I should clarify that I think for him to be an effective player he will have to develop a left. That shouldn't be a problem for him

    Re: Dear Craig Brackins,

    Guys, it's a faux-hawk, not a mohawk. It's supposed to be faded like a wedge. I know this because my son is growing his hair out so he can have one. It's the style with the younguns'.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    That was 22 years ago...they NBA has changed a little since then. If you are drafted, you may get 2-3 years to prove yourself. After that, your chances of getting back are very, very slim.

    Brackins needs to develop a left to give him the best possible chance of success in the NBA.

    Re: Dear Craig Brackins,

    Wasn't this the style back in the day of Kid-N-Play?

    I'm not a hair stylist at all, so I know nothhing about hair. I only know what the clippers and my receding hairline tell me.

    That is, there isn't much to know.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
