Really tall, highly skilled players are pretty rare and most with size will be projects. Uros has been hated on relentlessly by the VN degenerate trolls. But he’s really just TN’s 4th ever true (regular) 7 footer (Boerwinkle, Kosmalski, Hamer) and he still has 2.5 years of eligibility. I loved how he’s diving on the floor for loose basketballs. I love how he’s sealing off defenders to create lanes to the rim. I love how he rarely fumbles away the ball when the offense is in motion.
I was calling for him to try to dunk more when in the paint and he’s shown an increasing effort in that direction. It’s not always successful but it puts pressure on the opposition’s bigs and has drawn a couple fouls - some called and some not. He seems clumsy when he tries to finesse in the paint which may improve with more aggressive attacking of the rim.
One thing nobody can fault him for is effort or attitude. He’s clearly giving max effort and he’s 100% supporting his teammates When he’s on the floor or bench. I’m starting to think he’s going to be a serviceable 15-25 minutes a game type player before he leaves. I hope he does as he really seems like a great guy!
