Default Re: Lakeem Jackson

Look Lakeem is okay.. He's kind of athletic but doesn't possess the best body control. His dribbling is pretty good, but he's a small forward so he doesn't need to handle the rock. His shot is atrocious and he is a liability late in the game. He does however bring good defensive intensity and can force turnovers. Considering his size he is a pretty decent rebounder. Calling him an NBA prospect if he could shoot 70% at the free throw line is wildly inaccurate. He lacks a good basketball IQ as well.

He's got a point.. Lakeem is a late game offensive liability. It's an obvious choice to foul the guy who isn't even sure what hand to shoot with.

Default Re: Lakeem Jackson

A lot of people forget that he was the one who defended/shut down John Wall in our win against Kentucky in the Devan Downey game. Lakeem is one of our best players but at the same time this all kind of speaks to where our talent level is right now, it will be much better in about 2 years.

How is that story? Any better?

Better idea...... since you are already in Cola, just tell FM in person...... and with a little luck, you'll get the go f*ck yourself along with the death stare!

The point being this team is not very talented and Lakeem has some very weak areas in his game such as basketball IQ and shooting.. Two very important attributes.

I trust FM too. Have you not noticed he has been pulling Lakeem out late on offensive possessions and putting him back in for defense. Again, no one is questioning Martin. We were just stating some of Jackson's deficiencys. Thanks for your highly intelligent posts though. Go Cocks!

He played great tonight. No doubt about it. Chatkevicios had a good game as well. Hit a nice turnaround over that 7 footer.

We dud the right thing. Went with him on defense and sat him on the offense during akl the timeouts.

He played great d at the top of the zone. Great job lakeem!

Brenton got to the line late in regulation and saved us too.

I never played college ball but I very much understand the game of basketball and the nuances within the game. And if you claim to have played college ball and so verociously defend Lakeem's skill set then where did you play ball? Bob Jones University??

Thanks man at least you get it. The other guy's comeback was "I guess you know better than the coach" he never came back with anything about Jackson's game. Oh well..

Really, you think a guy who is not that great a shooter by your own admission, is only 6'5, leads the team in rebounding (6th in the SEC), 2nd on the team in assists (21st in the SEC), shoots 62% from the field (3rd in the SEC), 2nd on the team in blocks, 2nd on the team in steals and leads the team in minutes played but he has no basketball IQ? Check yourself....

Default Re: Lakeem Jackson

I do not think Lakeem has NBA potential. That said, he is our best passer, defender and rebounder. He is an undersized 4 skill wise but the mentality of a 3. Aside from Bruce, he is by far the best athlete on the team. We need to stop worrying about what he can do for us offensively, because the coaches don't look to him for that. His points are gladly accepted, but not what he is on the floor for. Strength, defense and rebounding are what he is on the floor for.

This team, if you ask me has already overachieved. With the exception of a few, we are basically a CAA team trying to hang in the SEC. We have a lot of heart, but we just don't have the size or the caliber of player necessary to do too much. Also, we can not shoot the ball. I know we think we can, but we look to drive first every play. That said, it will be fun watching them play hard every game.

Also, Lakeem has fine ball handling. His whole freshman year he would handle the ball, drive and dish. When Horn found out he couldn't shoot, he took the ball out of his hands.
