he is just not a threat as he gets further from the basket.
Villanova and Jay Wright had a pretty successful run playing small, Baylor plays smaller as well, there’s more success in recent years playing small than playing two true posts…it’s pretty clear you’re of the older generation and still think basketball is played with true big or that football is best running I formation with 2 TE’s, lol. But times and the games have changed for sure and given this rosters makeup it would seem to suggest that small ball is our best.
I think we start games this year small, but that’s not really all that important, what I will say is I think we play more small ball per game than we do 2 true posts per game…whether that’s starting or not we will see, but prior to Nkahmoua’s injury we were already playing more small ball than 2 true post, and not just against opposing teams backups, maybe you forgot but that was almost exclusively our final 8-10 minute lineup to close games out, it was our best lineup no matter who was on the other end of the court.
