When do the players get to campus and start working out?

When he gets a look and gets into his jumper, he is right on the money every single time. Best natural shooting stroke of any Mick player. He is going to be elevating and canning jumpers off the catch or the bounce from all over the floor for the next 3 years imo.
If this was the same team as last year without sk maybe KJ would be getting big minutes but went out and got more and better players for this year that push KJ back down the rotation. As for KJ shooting all these percentages he didn't play enough to go off any of that the kid played 10 min a game some games didn't even play at all it's not worth going by to little sample size. Until he proves to me he is good enough to start he will be 2nd string for now.

KJ didn't get enough minutes last year but that's because we had SK. What KJ did in his minutes was certainly impressive. Besides has stellar on the ball defense he was getting consistenly better on offense. Besides SK he was probably the best guy who could finish around the rim and make a layup. Don't forget his clutch free throws and clutch 3 in the conference tourney either.
I'm not saying KJ is going to a stud next year but he will certainly have his opportunities. There is a lot of upside to him.

This is the logic that I am struggling to understand...KJ is a 2nd string behind a 1st team AA as a freshman. Then, the 1st team AA leaves, KJ is now a soph, and he gets pushed down the rotation? He is the only returning SG on a team with only 5 returning payers...so I see how you can say we brought in more players, but better players? How can you say that? We lose a 1st team AA at SG and gain a 6' spring signing juco combo guard and Morman at his position.

Cobb is not sk by any means but his experience and deadly shooting and none of us know how good his defense is it could be Bishop good we don't know but I think right now Cobb is better than KJ by going off of last year. If KJ doesn't redshirt and is 2nd string I still think he can contribute but he won't be top 3 team good I think Ellis, Thomas, Cobb and Caupain will all avg more minutes and ppg than him. Just because your 2nd string one year and your 1st string leaves you take the 1st teamers spot, you have to now beat the new players coming in and I don't think he will do that. Also none of us know what Morman will bring he could end up being great and start over everyone who knows.

I guess with a lot of new pieces no one can say for sure at this point who will start. And I get that you dont automatically move up the depth chart by default (but that is kind of how it has worked in Mick's program). I just think KJ is a future 1,000 point Bearcat.

But I guess if you think Ellis starts, we'll differ there right off the bat...bc if we go small with Sanders like I think, theres no way Cobb starts at SG...but I might be way wrong about that.

Id like to make a friendly wager with you on who averages more ppg between Johnson and Cobb. Bc I'm down to put the house on KJ.

I don't think Ellis will start I think Sanders starts at the 4 but that doesn't mean Ellis won't get 20 minutes a game and avg 20 ppg in those minutes. And if you follow Mick system closely he starts upper classmen which Cobb is older than KJ but ill make a friendly wager with you on the Cobb KJ ppg bet.

I'm not arguing KJ could be a 1000 point scorer but it won't start this year with the other guards Mick has not enough minutes for KJ.

I agree with you. Plus Mick is extremely high on KJ...with just cause too. Not to mention KJ plays stout defense.

You wanna say whoever has the guy averaging less ppg after the last game of next year gets a 2 week ban from any posts?
