He moves faster when he spins. The Whirling Dervish.
I expect an 18.5, 5.5, 4.5 season out of Georges next year. Hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble now that he isn't going to play as an undersized center full-time.
Could be. I felt like when he got hurt he was just starting to put it all together, the last piece in my mind was playing smart on defense. I felt he was doing a better job of playing straight up D and avoiding the stupid fouls.
And Naz. And Monte. And whoever transfers in. And Matt. We are going to be lethal.
I didn't think he was very focused in that game. Something happened with him and the guy he was guarding(don't remember what) and it seemed like he kept trying stick it to the guy the rest of the game.
His rebounding actually improved quite a bit toward the end of the season. Haven't crunched the numbers but I think he was around 5 per game. His defense and fouling also improved.
just needs to convert more fat into muscle and increase his endurance. With more help in the middle, I think his outside shooting percentage should also improve.
ISU could be a very respectable defensive team next year. Morris and Hogue are very good, McKay should at least be a good shot disrupter (don't know anything about his defense besides that), Niang is getting respectable. No idea on Nader but he certainly has the length to be good.
Oh, and count me in for the 20, 5, 5 for Niang.
I love he's getting that respect. I hope he continues to improve as he already has. I think our system is such that we could have multiple stat stuffers..which is great! I do like that Georges can have the offense run through him and his leadership is off the charts..one of those guys that is probably already rallying the troops for next year.
I could see him averaging about 18 points 5 rebounds and 5 assists next year.
Georges is prettier version of Kevin Pittsnogle. Similar skill set except Georges is way better.
With all the guys who can score, I have trouble seeing Georges achieve an honor like this unless he is able to either up the rebounding or have a simply incredible year distributing the ball. Georges is a great offensive threat, but he is unfortunately a team where multiple guys can go off any given night.
I will almost guarantee Georges will be the #1 option next year. Especially having a pg like Monte who is pass first, which I don't really think has happened in the entire time Hoiberg has been coaching here unless you count Lucious into that mold.
Honestly, just pack it in and make them beat you from 3.
I'll mark him down tentatively for 19, 6, and 5.
We have so many weapons next year. As you've already covered; Niang, Hogue, McKay, Nader.. all of these guys could go off on any given night. Matt should make some good improvements this offseason. I have a feeling he'll rid himself of the hesitation and provide us with a very steady deep threat. Naz will continue to do Nazty things. Threesus saves. SDW can hopefully make some improvements as well. He's got huge potential. Edozie can give us good minutes down low to at least provide our guys with a quick breather, if we're in a little foul trouble, or if we just need him to go bruise. In all likelihood, Hoiball will land some sort of immediately eligible transfer that makes an impact.
Oh, and I haven't even mentioned some guy by the name of Morris yet. I really think that he is going to turn into a star next year. We all know what he brings to the table, and the media started to catch on towards the end.. but with all of these weapons, he will be the true facilitator. I think he'll break his own A:TO mark, while averaging about 8-10 points a game, and making numerous SportsCenter top-10 passes.
Kool-aid tastes good.
Since we're slapping random numbers on Georges, I want to see 20, 10 and 10. Mark it down.
Didn't say mark it down. Won't happen.
Let's keep in mind, since the 97-98 season, only 6 people have averaged 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. I'm not saying Georges can't do it but it's a very difficult task to achieve.
Yes I did :smile:
I feel that Niang stepped up quite a bit already this year as a leader. We had many games where ISU was out of sorts and Hoiberg put the ball in Niangs hands to get a "sure" basket. Also, he has already welcomed the leader role as well I believe.
40 points a game like pistol pete.
