He was the best player on a bad team, but that doesn't work with any kind of consistency. We had no choice but to let him carry us due to our shortcomings, but teams are better when everyone isn't standing around watching one player ball hog. Watching good mid-majors in the tournament slinging the ball all over the place and observing the chemistry made me envious. Hoping to see better team basketball this season. We'll see.

Someone has to be the floor leader. After Ahmad graduated, and Wade went down, it was supposed to be X. It didn't work out.

I don't think Curry sought to be a ball hog. It just worked out that way last season.

(Now, re-reading your post, this might be what you are saying.)

RE: ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
In Currys defense, because Wade went down and X struggled, he had the ball way too much and was somewhat forced into trying to do too much. I was little hard on him in earlier post. If we had more playmakers around him he could of been at least a little more efficient. We honestly should of played Hunter more, but I think the coaches figured X would eventually do more. And Oliver had to play heavy minutes. At least he’d jack it up and you have to guard him. He was the only chance we had to space the floor.
This team on paper has the chance to shoot better… maybe. Programs biggest weakness. Been a bad outside shooting team for a long time.


Hunter. Essien Johnson
Oliver. Stines
Smith. Wade. O’Connell
Long. Morris
Kalu. Trice

We will be better at the 1 this year than we were the past two years. Jaylin is a left handed version of Caver. I think he will be one of our best defenders.

I love the possibility of rolling the 4 guard lineups out with Hunter, Oliver, Smith, and Wade. Insert Long and possibly the freshman into that lineup, and I think that is a good rotation.

I feel much better now about our PG situation. Jaylin is solid, but he needs a wingman to split time. But who will start? I guess that will depend on what happens in the Mitch in the next few months.

Charles Smith looks like he came to play. Im expecting a pretty big role.
