New Story: Clemson's young "trees" growing up

Clemson's young "trees" growing up

Clemson head coach Brad Brownell has a lot to be excited about with his three young big men - Landry Nnoko, Sidy Djitte and Ibrahim Djambo. What does he say about each player? Photo by Joshua S. Kelly / US PRESSWIRE Full Story »

If we get a couple of big men that play consistently solid

this team will get a lot better. Real quick.

We have lacked a true big man for years

I would absolutely love it if Brownell could grab us up a 4 or 5 star really athletic 6'11" or taller center. I guess I would be satisfied with a Bill Walton type center maybe. If there is even close to another Walton out there;)

So Far (1st half)
Not picking up where he left off against Duke. So
much talent, and hes having a hard time getting his
career going-the way he wants it.

Also, whats happen to Roper??

I would ask what happen to all the FIRE Brownell folks tonight. I bet they are lurking for the next loss to pounce. We will lose games, but we will win games also. And for those that are happier wanting Brownell to lose to prove your point. Go try and prove your point on another board. Those of us that want to see Clemson win no matter who the coach is, we are kinda sick of you that believe proving you point is better than just pull for Clemson.

Still has 6 pts and led the team with 7 boards

so it was not a bad game. 14-14 is not going to be a nightly thing

I'd like to see Wienicki teach them some post moves

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 8:20 AM

It's a waste of time & spacing having our 6'-10" out on the perimeter setting weak screens & not even rolling to the basket. If we could get this part of the game going, it would take alot of pressure off of the guards having to shoot so many 3's.

We barely shoot 15 3's a game

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 9:35 AM

and the problem with our bigs setting a pick then rolling is that Nnoko and Djitte both still struggle to catch the ball. Nnoko has improved greatly. Has a very servicable jump hook now. Is now learning to stay out of foul trouble. Djitte is more than raw offensively. Your obsession with Wienicki is troubling, the guy is doing an excellent job

Instant lack of credibility

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 3:42 PM

My 8th grader has a better drop step & up/under move than any of the post players in Wienicki's tenure...that is what's troubling. I guess you thought Booker's "Flying Burrito Fade Away Hook Throw" was a good shot?!?!

Your credibility on credibility is so lacking as to make

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 3:46 PM

your response meaningless. DBook had his issues, but his improvement under this staff was undeniable. Nnoko has taken big steps from where he was last year. The guy is in his 5th year total playing basketball, and he's playing against real players, not 5'10 church leaguers like your 8th grader

My 8th grader is a 5'-10" girl & she'd kick your pompous ###

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 9:55 PM

Your arrogance is only outdone by your ignorance...

Your coaching acumen is best suited for 8th grade girls***

how dare you talk to coach superstar like that.



I know, he may send his daughter after me***

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 10:25 PM

Your wife is probably an 8th grade girl...wrinkled ole perv***

lol coach superstar.

Good lord you are a joke. You honestly see no development in Nnoko?



i was up close last night in blacksburg

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 10:44 PM

and some of those passes they struggle to catch were coming 90 miles an hour from inside of 10 feet

2020 purple level memberbadge-donor-20yr.jpg

Agree, but neither Nnoko or Djitte have good hands

Posted: Jan 16, 2014 10:52 PM

right now. Nnoko is far better than last year, and I'd expect he'd continue to improve. Not unusual for bigs to struggle catching the ball in traffic, especially young ones. Our entry passes other than from Hall do tend to be eratic, especially Roper and Filer when they penetrate to far

Winecki is widely recognized as one of the best big man coaches in the game.

Except by coachmac, so who am I to trust?
