@JayHawkFanToo Very well said. - -the very same point that I have said and many others from different sites. - -It makes it sound I’m trying to put Doke down - -that’s not the case at all. - -Like you say Doke is a really good COLLEGE player. - However just as you said he if he wants a legit shot in the NBA - he has just got to develop some kind of outside jumper. - -his little hook is not going to cut it in the NBA - other 5’s that can jump higher more mobile will swat that out all day long, Doke can be a very dominant College player - -as you say however the NBA is moving away from the type of game Doke plays - -this make a lot of people wonder if Doke will ever be able to make a living in the NBA.
Oh there will probably be some team that will give him a shot strictly of his bulk - but he needs to improve his lateral foot movement - become a better rim protector/rebounder - -and he is only going to be able to work on that by coming back for yet another year.
One thing that worries me - -is can he develop a jumper? - -when you watch how he struggles shooting a free throw - -the same thing pretty much is used in the mechanics of a jump shot - your elbow - -position of the ball in your hand - etc- - etc -as well as Doke has come along - he has a long ways to go for any kind of extended say in the NBA. - - Another thing is he needs to be more positive on his move - just seems like he try to over think his shot - too mechanical - to slow in developing other when he just rips the rim off - doesn’t take a lot of thinking on that shot lol - he just needs to get the ball and go - Still a really good College player. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
