Is Chris McCullough a Knucklehead?



After reading this Zags blog article where Chris McCullough says this

"I’ve been watching every game," he said. "I think they looking good. Rakeem [Christmas] gotta pick it up a little more."

WTF??!!

And the unknown incident that caused him to get kicked out of prep school, I'm starting to notice a pattern here. Especially after reading the weakness section of his Draftexpress.com profile.

Weaknesses:
-Rarely looks like he's playing with maximum intensity. Goes through the motions in too many possessions. Coasts for long stretches
-Not always willing to compete inside the paint. Shies away from contact
-Not an efficient offensive player. Consistently settles for low-percentage shots from the perimeter
-Has very poor fundamentals on defense. Doesn't get into a stance. Gets backed down relentlessly. Gambles for steals. Needs to improve strength and toughness around the basket
-Doesn't box out on defense
-Body language is often poor

This doesn't exactly dissuade someone from believing that this kid is a knucklehead, and being a Syracuse fan we've sure seen our share of knuckleheads come through the program. I hope this kid isn't, and when he gets into our program he straightens up so to speak.

What do you guys think?
