    Out of all the shots JDS took in that video I saw him hit the rim only once—the last shot. JDS put some serious rope burn on that basketball!

    Hopefully we won’t need him to shoot 30 times a game like Pipkins had to last season.

    Article mentions he wants to be a combo guard because he knows he's a undersized 2. Curious if this would impact us getting another pg for 2019.

    I don’t think so. Nothing wrong with having multiple ball handlers on the court at the same time. JDS is going to be primary scorer and Hartwell will be a primary passer.

    We will also have Greene, who is a combo guard, on the roster.

    I haven't been this high on an incoming freshman guard in my time following George Mason Basketball. I really think JDS is a very polished player. He seems to pay attention to detail and already does a lot of the little things (moving without the ball, running off screens, etc.) that should make his transition to college hoops pretty smooth.

    I'm hoping he proves me right and earns plenty of minutes this year. I just wonder where they all are going to come from.

    I can see him taking some of Kier's minutes if Kier can't get a consistent jump shot this season.

    I love Kier and his slashing ability, but his inability to shoot outside of 20 feet is becoming a problem as more teams scout him. I really really hope he improves his shooting this offseason. I could certainly see JDS taking some of his minutes next season if the shooting doesn't improve.

    What about Mar? He was the player I've been most pumped for, and he's looking like he'll be something special. But don't want to derail the thread; I'm really looking forward to seeing this kid in green and gold.

    Mar is not a guard.

    If all is well with our team from a chemistry perspective — and I think it is — all of our guys will be OK with playing fewer minutes than they did last season.

    There will be no excuse for any lulls in intensity because guys will have the luxury of giving 100 percent, knowing they have somebody capable coming in when they need a break.

    Bottom line, the team will benefit. I care way more about that than what individuals play which minutes.
