    If Brackins stays for one more year

    What areas of the game can he improve?

    (1) He is already a consistent scorer already, can get red hot from time to time, even under double team.

    (2) He is a excellent rebounder already

    (3) His defense is solid

    (4) He can even shoot the three

    (5) he can dish out to an oen shooter

    To me he has a complete package. Where are the areas he can improve by staying one more year?

    The only arguement I can see from some posters are that he can put some bulks in his frame, but (1) Cannot he improve that as a pro? (2) There are so many good player in the NBA that have similar build as Brakins. Look at Chris Bosh?

    If he leaves it wont be until his senior year. I really think he could be fantastic if he stuck around long enough to polish up some things hes weak on.

    He could maybe not get completely shut out in games against people, and I use the term loosely, like Cyrus Tate.

    He could definitely improve his rebounding and his ability to take it strong to the basket.

    Brackins would tell you himself that he as a lot of stuff to work on...Nobody is ever good enough...If you stop getting better; you're getting worse.

    Brackins will give us another year from what I hear...

    Left hand
    His handle
    Strength
    Mid range jumper

    Problem is that he can learn all those things in the NBA. He has the game to be a top 20 pick right now

    Re: If Brackins stays for one more year

    He needs to improve to the point where he can score 100 points a game, grab 30 rebounds and coach. I think we might make the NCAA tourney then.

    Re: If Brackins stays for one more year

    Facing the basket and making a move towards the basket to finish. He throws up some god awful shots when doing this (forces action) sometimes.

    He can definitely improve defensively. How many blocked shots does he have? I can't think of one (although I'm sure he has a few). Seems like he should be getting a couple per game.

    His body can get stronger and his FT shooting can improve as well.

    He can also improve his hairstyle...LOL

    Watch him declare for the draft and end up going to the NBA D league.

    Consistency, tenacity and strength...when CB can pound down low he'll be ready, the outside shot is great should be an afterthought. When he can stay with Blake Griffen down low shot for shot then he's ready.
