    Other than playing a different position, playing heavy minutes, shooting 41% from 3, drawing a lot of fouls off dribble drives, and functioning as a secondary handler and distributor?

    Other than that, no, basically the same - both tall and thin.

    I think you should let the building continue to burn, let it now be a reminder of what this board has gone through in the last 5 years. ;)
    It helps to remember the hard times, and it makes it that much sweeter to appreciate the good times rolling in, and me personally, I think we'll have plenty of that coming our way. It's nice to finally embrace the future for a change.

    Check out Lukas's article. It has Ali's stats against Kenpom Top 150 teams. Lukas did a good job with the article and there's a lot of good information in there

    Um at the very lowest he's a 6'8 floor spacer, shooting 40% from 3

    We will
    I can see that as the bottom line. Hope we find some game changers in the transfer market.

    I am pleased with this addition. With or without Luko I think we're now solid at the 1, 2, 3 and a stretch 4. Adding talent is always a good thing but the focus now shifts to a glass eating big. We have zero of that on the current roster.

    We need a five, four, Simas and Turnbull.

    We need Luko's court vision and versitility back and a 4/5 that can go after rebounds and hold his own in the paint. Everything else is negotiable in my opinion.

    Pretty much my wish list too. Luko and a 5 that hits the boards and is solid in the Pick n Roll on both ends. Best talent you can get for the rest of the spots (although if all else equal on an individual basis, another big or true point probably trumps a wing).

    Here's to hoping we see something else besides 70+ possessions of the pick and roll every game. LOL

    Seems like a smart kid who appreciates Butler basketball for what it is. I'm also impressed with the athleticism shown in those highlights. Super excited to see what he can do as a Bulldog!
