    Can someone talk me into Len? I know he's been getting a ton of hype but I'm afraid he's going to end up soft in the NBA. I have the same concerns with Zeller. My favorite big man is probably Noel.

    So, McAdoo, poor man's Shawn Marion? At best? I haven't seen a ton of him, but he doesn't impress me.

    He's having a really solid season so far, very consistent since being the starter

    Signifcant improvement from his freshman year to this year

    Indiana is running UNC out of the gym right now. Just the 1st half but Zeller is doing a little bit of everything, kid plays with intensity, passion and just has a real nice all around game. I've questioned his game in the past but he looks legit to me tonight.

    I love Zeller. Probably not going to come out til 2015, though.
    When in doubt, step up the defense

    McAdoo doesn't look too sick, he has a nice turnaround but I don't see him having the skillset to play on the perimeter. No way I say.

    I think McAdoo would benefit from a more open NBA style game. However, he just doesn't seem to have a position. He is a combo forward and in many ways that is a curse.

    Len has a VERY nice post game and great footwork in the paint, he can also hit jumpers from a foot inside the 3 point line. He is a huge offensive threat, and I think he can be solid on defense too if he bulks up a bit. He is a perfect compliment to TT.

    Unrelated: I have been down on Zeller as of late, but he is beasting it against UNC right now, and surprisingly has some nice blocks despite his supposed T-Rex arms.

    EDIT: I don't think Zeller will be a good Pro though, great college player, but not worthy of a top 10 pick in my eyes.

    Len just had a really good stretch to start the 2nd half for Maryland, this is against Northwestern but he's just beasting.

    Edit: Reminds me a bit of Big Z. Am I crazy?

    About 3 weeks ago Len and Noel played each other

    Len played 32 minutes to Noel's 26

    Len had 23 (10/18fg 55% 3/4 ft) points to Noel's 4 (2/6 fg 33% 0/3ft)

    Len had 12 rebounds to Noel's 9

    Len had 4 blocks to Noel's 3

    Neither had an assist

    Noel had 2 steals to Len's 0

    Both had 3 fouls

    Both had 0 to's

    Also found it interesting that Len has yet to have a game where he shot less than 53%

    On a sidenite, IU is sick as hell.

    Crean turned us around big time. Feels awesome to have been a senior during the resurgence last year.

    Cody still hasn't gotten a big post challenge - most interested to see him against MSU.

    Whenever McAdoo plays, I find myself wanting a bit more from every aspect of his game. He has good (not great) touch, very good (not freak level) athleticism, an above average (not great) jumper... I wonder if that's just because he's a still-developing sophomore, or because he just doesn't have it in him to be an elite-level NBA player. Their games aren't similar at all, but that was the feeling I got watching Thomas Robinson last year (except for his rebounding).
