Because you have only one guy who is an effective creator off the dribble if youíre starting bienemy/Harmon, reaches, manek, Doolittle, kuath. Aside from the fact that lineup would just completely melt down against a decent press, you just arenít going to get the dribble penetration you need to get going on offense. Manek and reaves can shoot, but they both need to be facilitated. Kuath is going to need good penetration to be effective on offense.

Have you seen reaves lately? In non shocker gear?

Yeah, the only reasons people think of Reaves as solely a standstill shooter are because they haven't watched him and/or they buy into a tired stereotype. Plus, Doo does his share of damage off the dribble. Just ask the Kansas and Ole Miss frontcourts.

Watching him at WSU you can see why people are skeptical, but looking back at his Hs film you can see flare, feel, & creativity off the dribble.

Even if Manek and Doo play 30 minutes a game at the 4/5, there's still 20 minutes left for Kur. I can't see anybody moving to the 3 unless Vic is playing, and all four are healthy. Although if Williams doesn't make it, we could somehow end up with more depth in the frontcourt than the backcourt (despite all the complaining on here about needing real big men).

I think Kur is a legitimate rotation player.. that means they only need Merritt and Victor to play remaining minutes, probably just for 2 minutes at a time, before tv timeouts and stuff.

I’d say Iwaukor & Kur fight for the majority of the remaining 20 mins.

You never know how chemistry works out on a team. We have more basketball players this year than last.
The coaches don’t seem to be worried about Williams being here in August. I hope they are right because he has ability.
This team will dribble much better than last years. James and Odomes were terrible ballhandlers.

Kur is around twenty pounds bigger. All muscle so he should be better.

So you are saying Kur is now 6'9'' 230? That's a gigantic difference for him, because he has freaky athletic ability to go along with that.

How has he looked in practice?

If you go by Kurís listed weight on last yearís Soonersports roster, another 20 pounds would put him at 224 this season.

I still think youíre right in saying that with the additional weight he added since last year (assuming itís mostly muscle), along with his athleticism, he could a difference maker as a defender and rim protector.
