Our buddy, the great Tom Leach, briefly gives his take about the Jodie Meeks early entry over at his blog today. He mostly seems to second the opinion of The Bo that this is not the end of the world for UK. But, he does agree there is a need to address when it comes to outside shooting. However, Tom did have one interesting thing to say about certain Jodie criticisms:
By the way, I get a kick out of those folks who talk about Meeks being just a catch-and-shoot guy who didn’t create his shot. It wasn’t exactly like he was getting an abundance of screens set for him, so he must have worked himself free more than a few times to score all of those points. Meeks is strong, fast and smart with a quick release–however and whenever he gets to the NBA, he’ll be like Chuck Hayes in that he will be hard to get rid of.
