Any offense looks better when players are making shots. Doesn't mean it's necessarily the right offensive scheme to run every game.
Josh Langford from Madsion Academy. He will be a top 10 guy nationally in his class. Was just named Gatorade Alabama player of the year.
Thanks for the help. +1
Haters are going to hate. We have a lot of baboons on here, that think they know a ton about football and have little to no understanding whatsoever about basketball.
Coaching Basketball at Alabama is not an easy task to undertake. It will take time to build that program into something of merit.
Football on the other hand a different story... I really believe a lot of the idiots will eat a large amount of crow next year. Although, I guess in retrospect I could be eating crow as well......
Roll Tide and I am proud of the our boys fought last night.....
Building a program from scratch yes it does take time. Developing players that should be far ahead of where they are and competing in the ncaa tournament is far different. We have three starters that were ranked in the top 100 players in the country (Lacey, Cooper, Randolph) and not one has improved their fundamentals or shooting since they arrived. Grant isn't having to "build" a program. He has the talent. Just isn't developing it.
Forgot about Releford who is by far our best player and doing his part being ranked #52 in the ESPN top 100 for 2010.

IMO Randolph an Coop have both improved from year 1 to 2. The last 6 or 7 games Levi has really shown improvement. If he can improve on his jumpshot in the offseason he can average 10-12 ppg next year. I think the biggest thing for Coop next year is that he should be back to playing the 3 ( his natural position). With him at the 3, he will have a size advantage over most of the guys guarding him. That will allow him to be a lot more effective on both ends of the court IMO.
I really don't know what to make of TL, appears he needs to drop a few pounds.

I agree Levi has improved these past few games. I think it has a lot to do with the confidence he gained over the period. Now if he can just carry that into the off season he has a chance to improve even further. TL's last shot last night was horrible technique. I think that has to fall on the coaches. Teach these kids how to shoot. I hold my breath every time it looks like coop is gonna heave one up.
IMO shooting and technique falls more on the player to get In the gym and get shots up on his own. The coaches didn't teach him to fade and lean to the side. TL has a pretty fundamental shot when he concentrates, he gets nice elevation on his jumper and gets really good rotation. I think last night he just got a little lazy with it.
On the other hand Rele really improved his jumpshot this year. If I had to guess that was probably just getting lots of shots up over the summer.
You mad bro?
This thread has potential to be the second coming of the "History will show....." thread, come this time next year.
These are my favorite. Don't think 100% Grant has done a fantastic job? YOU ARE JUST A FOOTBALL FAN AND DON'T UNDERSTAND BASKETBALL!
