[quote=“kidcoyote, post:11, topic:1350”]Sorry, Craftsy, you’re on ignore. PM me if you want to wager. Let’s go to Lucas, Jay Williams #1. Here are the last 4 games of MSU vs. PSU, and the numbers for Kalin and Talor.
FG-FGA 3P-3PA FT-FTA R Pts A TO's Steals
Talor Battle 31-59 18-39 15-25 21 95 21 12 0
Kalin Lucas 24-58 4-12 19-23 9 71 18 8 3
Talor shot 65% inside the arc(I caught some errors). He outscored the mighty Kalin by 6 points per game. Talor outscored him and outrebounded him every game.
For those who think maybe that there was a lucky game which skewed the stats, there was. One game Lucas shot 10-15, though was still outscored. Take that game out and he shot less than 33%. And he’s better? Okay, Jay better watch a few more games.[/quote]
You’re ignoring me… that’s rich. Because I’m the one spewing crazy-talk on this board for the last 4 years… got ya.
The problem is, even if I ignore you I’m going to see your posts quoted everywhere because everyone here thinks of you the same way that I do. So that’s not really an option, I’m hoping that you just kind of disappear once your weird man crush on Battle and his brother takes you to another team’s board somewhere.
Lar has a pretty good point I’m sure you’ll ignore…
But answer me this one… if Lucas isn’t covering Battle, as you always like to point out, why are you making this comparison like it’s supposed to reveal ANYTHING as a comparison? Taking a 4 game sample out of over 100 games of data and making these broad conclusions about anything is just kid being kid yet again - talking out of whatever side of his mouth gets his point across, facts be damned.
Do you really not understand why these other guys get ranked ahead of him time and time again, by every analyst under the sun?
He’s not big enough or athletic enough… where the hell is the upside? What makes anyone believe he’s going to get BETTER from this point in his career onward? There’s no reason to believe he will. In fact, the way he plays and gets knocked around it’s likely it’s going to make him worse when he gets around bigger, stronger, and faster guys at the next level, wherever that winds up being for him.
Show me the players with similar game, height, weight, and athleticism playing in the NBA currently… i’d love to see it.
He’ll have a nice career in Europe, but if he lasts more than a year or two on an NBA roster (assuming he’s drafted), it will be because he drastically improved several facets of his game from junior to senior season… and most guys don’t make that kind of jump in years 3 to 4.
I’m also hearing some things to the contrary about your second favorite young man you like to worship, the little brother of the family. While I’m not ready to make any wagers on him until I actually get to see him play myself, I know some people that know basketball that aren’t exactly high on him as a D-1 player anywhere, let alone PSU. I can’t wait to see your excuses if this one doesn’t pan out the way you say… like the other 20 guys you’ve hyped that never amounted to anything and you conveniently forget to mention anymore.
Please DON’T pm me if you want to wager - I don’t make it a habit of dealing with people as odd as yourself. I still think this whole persona of yours is a sham.
