    If you can make it 3 times without even shooting, your stats should be good. No idea why you don't believe them :confused:

    Really hope Lewis' play style is more Wes Johnson and less Sherron Dorsey-Walker. He's already got more muscle than both when they were freshmen, but similar body types.

    I love the length Lewis can bring to the 3 spot as well as his perimeter shooting. Some have pointed out he's pretty skinny right now, but he's also super cut so just needs to add more bulk to his frame. People like former player comparisons and I see his game similar to Taurean Prince's from Baylor a couple years back. Probably not quite as athletic but potentially a more accurate outside shooter.

    Also, Movement Hoops is making a documentary/video series profiling Lewis so we will learn more about him from that. I'll add the preview they posted below.

    I think more than anything Im impressed with the shirtless gold necklace look. We're going back to the 80's. Someone get that man a mustache and we have a baller :).

    I thought we decided on Clyburn as the correct comparison. I think he's definitely more Clyburn/Johnson than SDW. He's lean, but he's 6'5"-6'6". SDW was 6'4" and even skinnier. Lewis seems to bring more of an intensity/alpha attitude as well.

    I don't think he is like Ejim or Clyburn. I know people always want to compare people to former cyclones but I don't think they have had a 6'5 guy that can shoot like that and plays like he does. He is athletic, can finish in the lane, plays hard on both ends. To me he is a guy if he had developed a little faster he would have blown up like Wigginton did. But he didn't really become a great shooter until his Senior year and has improved handles as well.

    A lot of over-analysis. Let's let the kids dribble the ball a few times on Johnny Orr's court before we determine who can do what.
