I'm not saying he wasn't good for us but he does not have a pure shot, he is not very athletic, he is not a great passer. He's a work horse. He willed himself to rebounds, and put in a lot of work earning great play.I call BS on that statement. He was a double double player for us in both points and rebounds. He was also on a team with players that had all played together for several years, built chemistry and trust.
Many transfers are not top players on their new teams their first year out.....especially when they don't sit out a year and work with the team. Look at how many supposed great transfers we have had....especially grad transfers who get thrown into the fire with basically just 2-3 weeks of official practice to get up to speed with the team. In fact, we have two right now in Bacon and Levi.
Make no mistake, I am not rooting for MSS. But to say a MSS is not a natural bball player is just bull IMO. He is undersized, height wise, for his position as a center/forward and I am not sure he has an outside shot beyond 5 feet or so......we never used him that way. But he was extremely good for us. He was better pointwise and reboundwise than Mo.
