I've always really liked Arthur's game. I think he's one of the best things MU has going for them next year. And I think Trayvon has potential, but so far he's still falling short. I'm always waiting on him to dominate, but so far he's never shown that type of aggression. I actually kind of root for him more than the others just because we had a class together our freshmen year and so if he ever makes the NBA I can do some bragging, but he's going to really have to step up. And I'm definitely hearing good things about Clemons and McKinney (especially McKinney), but then again we always hear great things when they are coming into the program. I remember everybody was psyched about Trayvon and Wesley Stokes, but Trayvon hasn't lived up to the hype yet and Stokes is already out the door. So I'm going to wait and see before I judge.
moTIGS, you seem pretyt knowledgable about Missouri hoops, so let me ask you this: how do you see the point breakdown looking next year? What do you see all the guys averaging, because I'm interested in how you project this team. Personally, I know we've been talking about Paulding and I'm going to project him at about 18ppg next year. And I see Arthur getting around 13-14, and Trayvon getting about 14. I guess I'm just not willing to make any predictions about Clemons or McKinney yet because I've never seen them, but right now I still don't see a legitimate threat on the team. I don't see anyone who the defenses will have to double-team and free up Paulding. When Kareem was around he commanded respect and drew defenders to him, and when Gilbert was hovering around the 3-pt line he stretched the opposing defense. I don't think that opposing defenses will have that type of problem against Missouri next year, so I think it will be harder on Paulding. I think he has loads of potential, but I'm still worried about him.
