    If you find that player I will be surprised. If that player even exists then it wont be more than 1. Do you know why those players with that height dont have a shot distribution that bad?

    It's because no player is selfish enough to not develop any semblance of a post game at that height. He either has zero post game or refuses to do it. If your 6'9" you have some ability to play inside... or at least some desire to do so. He is a rare player. Superior height but allergic to the hardwood inside the arc. He does not need to make his bread and butter inside but it should at least be a threat every now and then. I dont know why that offends you so bad, but CAF is right... having 2 aspects to your game is better than 1. Kaiser needs something to go to if the three isnt falling. If you don't get that then your hopeless.
    For what its worth, there are a few 6'8 guys with higher 3pt shot % attempts, but no one 6'9 or taller in D1 this year.

    Last year, Nick Duncan, Jack Purchase, Nick Smith

    I didn't really address this before, because it was minor, but I don't know where the idea that Gates is 6'9" came from. Even Xavier doesn't list him as 6'9", and they are well-known for inflating players' heights from time to time. He's 6'8" at best and his true height could even be 6'7" if that's inflated.

    It reminds me of when announcers are talking about Bluiett and he somehow gets taller and taller as they talk.

    remember when Tre was in a shooting slump and some of us thought he might need season-ending surgery until he'd ever be shooting well again? Those were fun times.

    Kaiser will find his shot. I agree he needs to add more to his repertoire for next year, but if he gets back to scoring like he was earlier, he will be a very important key to a long run.

    Also, Naji is playing well, but I don't think I'd go as far as to call him our best all-around player.

    IMO Gates is a 3 that should crash the boards. I think he is forced to play a bit out of position due to the depth at guard and lack of depth at the 4. Where do you find minutes at the 3 with Q (6’4”) Tre (6’5”), JP (6’5”), Naji (6’7”) all on the floor for most of the game.
    You can tell whether he’s engaged or not by watching him on the offensive glass. My only concern with him crashing the glass is that he’s had a lot of blows to the head. One lineup that doesn’t get any run is Q, Tre, Naji, Kaiser, OMara. I would love to see him setting more ball screens.
    Kaiser will bust out of the slump soon and I could see him winning us a game in the tournament.

    Hope he has a huge game tomorrow and breaks out of his shooting slump, he was close last time out, when he hits his shot, this team gets even better considering his presence rebounding and playing defense. I have faith in Kaiser, he will be fine come tourney time, just looking for him to build up some confidence next two regular season games before it gets to the survive and advance mode.
