I think Bowden has a decent chance to get a two way contract like Kyle got last year. 3&D, just needs to be consistent on the 3 part. Good athlete, good size for a 2 guard, can handle the ball adequately at least, was pretty good on defense (really good at times), just has to make the 3 consistently. He has a good looking stroke.

Bowden is such a hot and cold 3 point shooter, and his cold streaks last weeks or even months. If he could not be consistent at that under Barnes I do not think it will improve in the NBA. Hope it does, but if it doesn't then hopefully the young man can find his place in the D league or overseas.

So true.. it felt to me last year anyway, like he was pressing to much to shoot his way out of that slump. With him being a local kid he wanted so bad to be "the man" after LT went down.imo I actually think getting out of Knoxville might be just the thing to free him up to just play basketball again. Would be really cool to see him make a roster somewhere. Such a good dude that caught some tough breaks last year.

It was true of each of the last three seasons. When he went cold, he went cold for half a season.

Okay. I still think if he weren’t a local guy he may not have pressed as hard.
I will appreciate him as long as I’m breathing but I just think he wanted to represent so much for his home town it became a hindrance. Jmo

I'm not disagreeing with you. Just emphasizing the fact that his cold streaks were legit streaks. They didn't last 7-8 games, they lasted 7-8 weeks. The reason for last year's, particularly, may have been the exact reason you mentioned.

Iverson says hold his beer
2 rings to none and Zeke was everything Iverson was, just a better team/assist man. Zeke, also, got a ring in college as a sophomore at Indiana. Pure winner, only played 11 years in the NBA because of an Achilles injury that u didn't come back from over 30 years old, in the early 90s
