    Ham - Just Dunk it!

    I hope Hamilton gets a little more aggressive next year and starts dunking those layups he had blocked this year.

    Re: Ham - Just Dunk it!

    I agree. ..I'm hoping they're going to start working with him any day now on his strength. He has the opportunity in my opinion, to be pretty good, but he's too weak right now. People just easily rip the ball from his hands, but he has a nice jump shot..if he was STRONG, it would be awesome.

    Truth. It's like he sits there and hesitates.

    Amen! GMac should hire Homan to come in as a consultant to teach some agressiveness...

    Re: Ham - Just Dunk it!

    He doesn't have athletic explosiveness to dunk quickly...he needs to gather himself it appears and often that allows defenders to recover.

    I think he is more comfortable with the layups for fear of getting rim stuffed as well.

    Re: Ham - Just Dunk it!

    He has the potential to be all Big-12, no joke. He improved a lot this year. Get a little more aggressive and stay out of foul trouble, he could be creating havoc for other teams next year...

    The development of LaRon and Jaime coming back will also be a great addition for Ham...

    He has the talent to be a very good player, but need someone to light a fire under him.

    Re: Ham - Just Dunk it!

    Ham averaged less than 4 field goal attempts per game this year, probably half of those on Brackins double team assists. To increase his scoring average next year he will have to add the 8-10 ft jump shot to his game.

    Back off Ham...It will be very clear soon what Ham was struggling with and should be respected for it.

    That will change. He may be our go to guy next year.

    Planteritis in his foot? Stress fracture?

    Huh?

    I didn't know Ham was "struggling" with anything. He looked pretty healthy to me.

    adding: why is this a secret? there's nothing to hide anymore, no one has to play "i know something you don't know" on this.
