I agree with your post, but given that those final season stats were accomplished in an average of 17 minutes a game, they're not so bad. If he averages 30+ minutes a game at Marquette, he might put up some good stats.

Agreed.... I thought he would have been a really good player if he got the right minutes. I would have been playing him a minimum of 25 minutes a game. He was always doing something with that athletic ability. He's a lob risk... Shot blocker... Etc.

He wasn't used properly here.

On the surface I agree with you but, and I could be wrong, I believe another poster closer to the situation has mentioned before that he didn’t always do what was expected of him as a student athlete whether that be not going to class or showing up late to meetings and/or practice or whatever. In that regard he’s lucky he got as many minutes as he did. If I am misremembering then again I won hundred percent agree that he was miss used. However if he didn’t uphold his end of the bargain then he got exactly what was coming to him.

You’re absolutely right, Sky! I was among those who thought Lon made a mistake by not giving Kur more minutes. But if what some are saying about his attention to being a good student athlete is correct, it’s hard for me to blame the coach for making that decision.

He wasn't going to get more minutes with Manek here.

Manek's offense COULD win games all by itself when he was on. There is/was nothing about KK's game that could win a game on his own. He might have been better at some things than Manek, but Manek, even with his warts, but was the much better player.

Goes back to recruiting. Lon wasn't very good at recruiting pieces that fit together correctly. I agree, there is a team and style of play where KK can probably be somewhat effective. But it wasn't last year's team under Lon, and it definitely wasn't going to be this year's team under Moser.

Kur’s issue was consistency, his great plays were great, his bad plays were bad, not a whole lot of middle ground. With someone like Lon, I think that’s why he didn’t get more minutes.

I agree with WT in that he would get fewer minutes not more with Moser.

That’s one of the things I like about our new coach. No one will have to ask what kind of offense we’re running, a question we heard fairly often when Lon was our coach. Moser’s offense and his defense are highly disciplined. Kur would be lost, so would Vic.

I would say no. Once this offseason wraps up I bet he is rarely if ever mentioned again. I don't think is potential was ever built up like Hornbeak was.

The problem is that for as good of a shot blocker as he was....he wasn't a very good defender. Great weakside shot blocker when he was in position, but he all to often didn't recognize defensive rotations and wasn't a good on ball defender. His length masked a lot of his deficiencies. He's a good backup big, but IMO, at OU he did not show that he was a starting caliber or high minutes player.

Lon looked for mismatches and did as well as just about any coach at exploiting them. But because it wasn’t a set system and depended on personnel (both ours and our opponents’), people didn’t always recognize it. Other people just didn’t like it because they didn’t think it was as pleasing to the eye as the basketball they grew up playing and watching.
