Other than his turnovers I don't see a ton NOT to like there. He was above 65% from the Line his last 3 years too.
For a pillowy soft socialist commie euro big... He we was pretty damn good, as I said before. He had such offensive beasts as Naymick and Ibok and Rowley and Gray to tag team with up front too.
Marriage is like flying with kids, if the flight had 500 connections, never ended, Ted Striker were your pilot and you ate the fish.
he was about 10 times better than most people gave him credit for
vivid memories of idiots slurping Marquise Gray for his one alley oop dunk per game and hating on Suton.
we have a lot of dumb fans.
Ok assessments except to say Thornton did more harm than good until the final 1/2 of his 5th year. He was actually playing very well his entire 5th year. It just took the board a couple months to come to terms with the change.
I wouldn't mind Byrd getting minutes and missing all his shots if he could defend at all. He gets absolutely killed on D on and off the ball. The footspeed is just not there. Maybe it'll get better as the lingering issues from his surgeries clear up but right now he is contributing nothing on either end. Hoping for the best for him though, he's got time to straighten things out. But he's going to get minutes and we really need him to contribute something over the coming weeks.
He did a way better job taking care of the ball and started hitting his 3s after B1G play started Specifically after the game @ Kohl early on. He was always a pretty good rebounder for a wing.
Klein was WAY more fluid and athletic than Byrd is now. Not sure if you recall or not but Klein won the Midnight Madness dunk contest in his freshman year over Mo Pete with a sweet Jordan "rock the cradle" throw down. He could get up which is why he was a decent and rangy rebounder as well.
Byrd? Not so much.
Byrd stats for tonight:
14 points on 5 out of 7 attempts (4-6 3pt)
Granger was also extremely fast and could sky. Lateral movement was an issue, but I know Granger held a ton of Track and field records at his High School coming into MSU.
We do need to hold judgement a little bit on Byrd's "athleticism" as foot issues are really a bitch to deal with and throw everything out of whack.
No free throws?
LOL me too! Well played +1
