JULIE, are you Daniels mother, aunt, sister etc?
After watching the Purdue boilermakers play the GC Blaze at TSS last night I am convinced that he is the slowest and least threatening PG I have ever seen in the NBL or ABL.
He didnt look confident at all. He got at least 20 minutes and was given a variety of match ups, all of which he was exploited for being too weak and too slow.
Any coach would expect more from a backup PG that was tediously bringing the ball up court with a series of back turns (esp against a solid college trap) then wafering around near the half way line and calling the same play...THEN taking a wide uninspiring berth around a solid Melmeth pick only to lay the ball to him 1 metre outside the 3 point line and then re-assume his position near the safety of the half way line or camp in the corner to wait for the D to collapse so he can jack a 3.
Not saying he doesnt have potential or doesnt deserve a chance or even that I could do any better. But at that level you should have to earn what you are getting. Perhaps he is being thrown into the wrong position, maybe a spot up 2 or 3 man might be the go for him, but he will need to develop a scorers mindset and a stronger body.
ps Someone should tell him that muscles and heart make you look/play stronger...not tattoo's on twig like arms.
