not only did he play fball. but he played against kids who played fball. most of the high level kids are 1 sport bball types.. Joe has played against 2-3 players every team had for the last 4 yrs and most of those kids were multiple sport types too. he will run into better athletes but the physical side wont be the issue, he is used to getting pushed and over played. what he wont be allowed to do is in HS they would let him shoot from anywhere and get away from the contact and the team had no choice but to let him shoot thru any issues.
his skill as a shooter is not that he is light out its that he shoots about the same from 20 as he does from 30 or under pressure. to me his shot has gotten better and more consistent and with Hughes and Buddy out there he is going to be seeing the 3rd best man guy on any team and most teams dont have 3 lights out defenders.
if this team had a lock down rebounders like a coleman type i think we could fast break with Marek and the shooters
the flop is just get people to play the game, but there is also the time you think you are about to get crushed and fall away and then there is no contact. but guys have learned over the years to pretend everything is contact. when we played you learned to shoot and follow through with the offhand and slap your leg, much the same thing
