Yeah, it seems to me too many times Josh turned down and open three and three or four passes later we ended up with a contested shot or a turnover. Sometimes the extra pass is not the best play. Not saying he should take contested threes early in the clock, but when he's open he is a good offensive weapon. Shoot it young man!While MR says his players have a green light to shoot, I think some players are having a difficult time figuring out what MR actually means when he says he wants his players to make sure they pass the ball around to get the "good shot". So they don't take the shot in favor of passing it to someone else hoping the other person has the good shot.
I know Banks can shoot.....he has shown he can shoot.....his HS basketball record shows he has the ability to shoot the ball. I have been high on him since he got here and want him to succeed. But I am getting frustrated by his seemingly lack of desire to shoot and just pass the ball to others. I understand that with his limited playing time he doesn't want to take the "bad" shot and get pulled from the game. But I just really want to see him succeed on the offensive end. I think he has put in a ton of time on the defensive side and is pretty good at locking down his opponent. Now I just want to see him start shooting and hitting a few buckets.
He chose to stay for another year and with Curry gone he has an open opportunity to play and get more time. But that also means he needs to score on the offensive end. I know he can do it but I want to see him do it this year.
