So, whether it be Bank, Shep, Reaves, or a new guy… When do you call them a 40% shooter?
If you bring in a grad transfer, at what time do you take PT away from a kid who has dedicated several years to your program, and replace him with someone who may shoot 30% himself? At what point do you declare any of them “legit”? How many shots, or how many games, before you declare one of them a “.300 hitter”, and the other a “.250 hitter”?
Do you judge Banks’ by his first 25 games shooting 40%, or his last 10 games shooting 25%? On the exact opposite side, do you judge Reaves by his 25% his first 25 games, or by his 42% in his last 10 games? If you have a grad transfer, what confidence will you put in his first 10 games? …first 20 games? If he shoots bad, do you instantly bench him? If he shoots well, do you take minutes from your vets, assuming that it will continue all season?
Keep in mind that Shep, Banks, and the grad transfer have 1(ONE) season remaining. You have a very short period of time to figure it out, or lose those players.
