View Full Version : No dumb jocks under Larry Brown

Acording to this artical you going to need a high BBIQ to play for L Brown . I consider most if not all our players with a high BBIQ. Whitch players do you consider in truble because of low BBIQs . Or do you even think it's a requirment to play for Brown?

I could have sworn earlier on that Ryan Hollins would have been in trouble trying to get a roster spot, but he got one.
I actually agree witht the article about the "dumb jocks" point.
Also agree that we have some pretty smart players on our team. We really don't have anyone that I would put in that "dumb jock" category. At least not any serious contributors.
I think that a couple of our smartest (bball IQ wise) are Dudley, May and Felton. If each of these guys improve during the year, I think we will have a great...really great, season!

I thinks Hollins will actually be a lot better under under a good coach where he has clear responsibilty. Players with a high basketball IQ can be thrown out there with no system in place and they will gravitate towards the positions that make them successful. Hollins looks like he doesn't exactly know where to stand. That doesn't mean he isn't smart just that he doesn't have great basketball instincts. Of course he is on the team for his great physical talents with some guidence from LB we are going to see those talents make more of an impact.

Mek = A smart person but to me seems to lack in some areas as far as a BBIQ [ concerteaction and mchanical instead of just knowing the tends to second think to much.
Wallace = I think he counts on his atlethic ability more than BBIQ . Not saying hes dumb but i feel Brown could help him to All Star status if he buys into the program.
Felton = A gem rat and a student of the game . Should thrive under Brown high BBIQ
May = Could understand the game better than any other Bobcat [ But is his effort and health going to help that high BBIQ.]
Swish = Tons of ability and heart average BBIQ but with the work ethic over the summer . He should reach All star status.
Morrison = High BBIQ couldn't have made it this far on just atlethic ability along.
Hammer= Highest BBIQ along with May on the team average abilitys at best . But makes the most out of ever ability . Has come from the ndbl to a six year contract.
DJ + Allexis Nither has been around long enough to know . But one gets the feeling DJs BBIQ is very high and Alexis is a project with a low BBIQ.
Dudley = Another student of the game like Felton High BBIQ.
Hollins and Davidson both with tons of ability and low BBIQs . Thair desire to learn along with Alexas will determine how long they with the Bobcats.
Brown . Don't know enough about his game to commit.
Nazz A vertran who has played for Brown and should know what expectations are. With decent BBIQ and decent ability.
Your thoughts or disagreements about ant of the guys?

I think all our guys are pretty intelligent or they wouldn't be here. Although they were considering the trade of GW at one point, but I don't think that was due to intelligence...:cool:
