With a better jump shot.
I hadn't even considered this as an option, but I really didn't dig into Javan's footage much.
If Prohm can mold Javan into a Weiler-Babb type of player, that would certainly change the outlook on next year's team. It would free up some of these other guys to develop off the ball and allow for some switching on defense. If he could run the point with some efficiency and give us 7-8 points/game, I'd take that.
I hope Johnson can surprise and be vastly improved. If they are going to play small like they should they need a guy like that who can be a mismatch at the 4 and can guard multiple positions.
Hope he's a nice surprise, but he averaged 10 ppg at a Troy team that finished 12th in the Sunbelt. Let's be real.
Very true. But guys can improve in their sit out years. He does have some skills to build off of. He has a really nice looking outside shot, is a good passer and is athletic. He doesn't have to be a superstar to be a good player and improve the team next year.
Sometimes even really good players can't make a team good (see Tyrese this year)
Nader averaged 11.4 ppg on a Northern Illinois team that was 10-51 while he was there
That's true, but we've had guys who were just ok at their old school (Nader) and didn't really do much at all (Burton) become studs by the time they were seniors here. We've also had some that never panned out, so it could go either way.
DeAndre Kane's number also went up after coming here. Johnson is not Kane, but there is a history of some players improving their stats even while playing against better competition. Time will tell if Johnson can do it.
Underappreciated in his own time.
I know this is tongue in cheek, but wasn't Pippen 6'8"?
Yeah he was. At least that is what he was listed at. Although I think I have some cards that listed him as 6'7 but I would have to go check.
Boy I hope all of this is true, but I also remember him hyping up Zion coming into this season.
And Bowie. And Brase. And Beverly. And Nixon. The praise ceases to mean anything after a while when game results show something quite different.
I don't remember him hyping up Brase, Beverly and Bowie that much. Maybe said they would be solid contributors. He hyped up Nixon's defense, which was pretty accurate.
He also hyped up Shayock, Babb, THT, Bolton, Halliburton, Wigginton....
He’s gonna have to be Pippen to overcome Prohm’s terrible coaching
I hope the talk about JJ being potentially the PG is true because the idea of Tre or Bolton running the point next year does not give me the warm fuzzies.
Does he look like Micheal Jordan?
He’s going to be a good one. He’s a Kane guy, and Kane (and Prohm) know guard play. I wonder if we’ll use him how we SHOULD have used Talley, had Talley been in good standing. Small-ball four or point-forward at times?
I don’t expect him to be All-Conference, but Reminds me a little of Floyd pulling Dedric from University of New Orleans. He’ll be better in the Big 12 than his modest numbers at Troy suggest.
Not likely so don't get your hopes up.
