    Brackins' Outside Game

    When do we start giving him the Jiri treatment?

    Jiri was a better outside shooter than Craig. When Jiri shot it outside, he was immediately put on the bench. Craig will shoot a 3 or try to shake and bake someone out there, and nothing. Why?

    For a team that is offensively challenged, we're not exactly in a position to waste possessions.

    In the paint, Craig is great. I can only imagine how efficient he'd be and how high his field goal percentage would be if he didn't force so much from further than 10 feet out.

    Ham learned that one yesterday. He took it up soft and got rejected hard. He's still real young and will turn into a mean SOB as he gets older.

    So you want him to shoots threes because he has had one good game out there out of about 50 games?

    Can someone post his 3 point stats? Cyclones.com doesn't work for me on this browser for some reason.

    And I want to be clear that I'm not just talking about 3 pointers, either.

    Re: Brackins' Outside Game

    another reason might be because he is a better low post scorer on this team than jiri was on the last team. he is a more valuable player to this team

    Re: Brackins' Outside Game

    he is probly the most valuable player on the floor. and if u want him to stay in the post say that instead of saying why dont we bench him like we did Jiri. and i also dont think he FORCES up 3 pointers. i dnt remember many times where hes shot a 3 with a hand in his face

    He is undoubtedly the most valuable player on the floor. His value is maximized when he stays in the post. That is the point.

    Everytime Craig shoots a 3 it is forced. You know why they don't put hands in his face? Because they want him to shoot it.

    Re: Brackins' Outside Game

    Oddly enough Brackins does have the record for most 3 pointers in the game. He's usually off though.

    He forces shots inside also.

    Re: Brackins' Outside Game

    he forces more inside shots than outside and if craig is open for a 3 i wouldnt mind at all if he takes it.
