    Hansborough playing professionally at 36 is impressive. I hope he’s made great money in that time.

    Oh, I see it. This time last year we all expected Free to maintain or improve upon an already productive stat line. There’s a lot of similarity in style. You may not recognize the comparison to a poor man’s Hansborough, but I think that speaks more to the true degree of Free’s downfall last season.

    I had a little Twitter exchange with Adam Baum last night as he was sitting in a NY airport waiting to come home.
    I asked him if Jerome Hunter had a role on this team.
    Adam answered Yes, as a defender & Rebounder.
    Then I asked “What about as a 3 point shooter”.
    Adam answered: “Nah. Jerome will not be shooting any 3’s in this system. He is a great passer though- and is the best passer to the Post on the floor.”
    Good to hear. Sean’s not gonna tolerate fuckery.

    So, for the things that we all recognized he could bring to the table, but the one getting paid millions of dollars couldn't. Amazing.

    Nice to have a coach again not afraid to let players know what things make them a tremendous asset to the team and what things make them a serious liability.

    As each day passes, I am more and more convinced Steele wanted to be buds with the players more than he wanted to make them and the team better.

    Alot of coaches know that if you lose the players, you lose the job - but that's more at the professional level. He basically let them do whatever they wanted, and I'm sure the players loved it. But they didn't become better basketball players.

    Not getting back into a deep Steele discussion, but there was an issue between Steele & the players because he had different levels of tolerance for different guys, and most of the guys didn’t like it. They hated how Ben Stanley & KyKy were treated vs *Others. (No names please)

    the weird thing is that Kunkel and Stanley got cleared to play earlier that originally thought. If Stanley sat out year could have avoided injury and been able to contribute this year. As much as I (and we) love Kunk, he was the death of Kyky and we STILL did not make NCAA. Sometimes you shoud not wish for something because you might get it. I hope Stanley tears it up..if he did not get hurt i beliieve he would have cut into Carter's time and maybe we could have snuck in with the extra offense (Carter had a great game against St Johns in 2021, then did nothing after it)

    Kunk is a great guy to come off the bench. I really hope Sean has him cut back on the quick trigger and contested 3 pointers he loves to shoot the 2nd the ball gets in his hands. He's streaky, but tbh, the talent being recruited should have him looking over his shoulder. Not sure he starts on any other top half Big East teams.

    I also agree that his arrival was the death of KyKy. Would still love to see the kid break out because he has elite first-step and upward explosiveness. And with that quickness, I could also see him being one of the best on-the-ball defenders in the league if he wanted to. I just want to see him dunk a couple times - I don't think he's gotten an official dunk yet.

    I don’t think kyky will see much time at all. I would say the one way he could is by being a great defender….though I swear I saw somewhere that Sean said he changed his philosophy a little in that a great offense will beat a great defense at this level. I wouldn’t be surprised to see both kyky and Kunkel become deeper bench players and less time as the season goes on.

    I’m so glad Steele is gone. But I think the players being upset he treated players differently says more about them then it does Steele. I’d bet 95% of coaches do the same. Some guys have longer leashes than others. Should Crawford have a longer leash to jack up crazy shots then most the guys on the team? Yup
