First, JA played like an all American last night. Second, is there any chance he can develop a right hand and play situational point for us? Talk about a match up nightmare for other teams.
JA is not a PG. A quick PG would strip the ball from JA like taking candy from a baby. He is a unique combo of size, power, leaping ability, and court vision that is a matchup nightmare for most teams at the 3 or 4 spots. The development of his jump shot lately is huge for his future potential. If he can develop better ball handling skills he can become an All American player. Think Vince Carter.
I didn't say he would be our starting pg...I said situationally given the right matchup
If Brogdon can play point, why can't Anderson? Brogdon's just as tall, is slower than Anderson, and his non-dominant hand is also undeveloped. Anderson was the only guy on our team who beat the Norfolk State press. To add to that, Anderson makes some nasty passes.
Because Anderson's game isn't cerebral and it's best not to weigh him down with running the offense. I don't want him playing deliberately like a point guard sometimes has to do, and every minute he plays the point is a minute our freshmen aren't developing. Plus, taking him far away from the basket on defense is taking away his strengths on that end of the court too.
My offseason to-do list for JA is:
Improve penetration game featuring pull up jumper
Develop right hand
Improve post-game (especially if a 2 is guarding him)
Keep developing 3 point shot
I think this kid can turn into a LeBron-esque matchup problem playing the 2 if he adds these aspects. Who exactly is going to guard him? He's bigger and stronger than a normal 2 and faster than a 3/4.
