Phil was no goon... he did have basketball skills....

Moss doesn't seem like a typical Kowalczyk guard. He is a post grad at Spire academy working to improve his grades and his shooting touch. He reportedly is very athletic, plays strong one on one pressure defense and all the posts from his days at Springfield say he needs to improve consistency with his outside shooting. Hopefully his grades and his shooting have both improved this year. Spire defeated Orangeville Prep from Canada (Keshaun Saunders prep school) this week at a national tourney. He was an all state outside linebacker in football and promises to be a tough tenacious defender. On offense he thrives in transition and his game has been based on using his strength and athleticism to make dazzling plays getting to the rim. In high school, as a powerful 6’4” wing, Moss was capable of scoring explosively and also leading his team in rebounding and steals.

yeah, perhaps, it's better to swing and miss on an elite athlete than a guy who has game but might not have the athleticism to handle this level of play. however, coach k's successful developmental guys tend to be skill rich and modest athletes (navigato, boothe, knapke,...although rian pearson was an exception-a great athlete who needed to learn how to shoot). we've seen some great athletes never materialize as contributers (hill, rose, etc...)

Interesting take. I think Marreon and Willie are awesome athletes but kind of so so skilled bball players. Marreons shot is pretty ugly and he feels out of control in moments. Jon Jon Williams and Fletcher were athletes with an ugly shot. They tooled their games to find the stroke but I'm not sure we've had a ton of good combos of athleticism and nack for shooting touch.

IMO Juice Brown had both. Sanford as well... He just forgot to attempt shots some games.
