I've been sitting here for a bit thinking about this one, and it's not easy. But, I need a play maker - so I'm going with Terone Johnson. I know what I'm getting with Terone: heart, intensity, and someone who will learn from his mistakes throughout the season and progressively get better and better. Terone has gotten off to a very slow start, but I think he's going to pick it up and take over as the leading scorer for this team. I'm really banking on him being a better 3pt shooter, though. Obviously my team is shaping out to be a blue-collar, grind it out sort of team thus-far.
My team is running all day. I might hire Mike D'Antoni as an assistant and score 130 points per game.
I wasn't really sure what to expect when Carter came to Purdue, but this guy has easily become one of my favorites. He plays his heart out and will do whatever it takes to get the team a W. He can shoot, he can defend, and he doesn't give up on any plays. Your team will run, but I've got defense, high IQs, and balance. I think I've got a mini Memphis Grizzlies style of team right meow.
I'm going to add another potential 3-pt threat with Neal Beshears. My only consistent 3-pt threat is Carter, and Beshears has the ability to be a stretch four off the bench when I need. Behind Carroll, I believe Beshears is our best deep bench player and can definitely help out if we get into deep deep foul trouble (knock-on-wood that never happens but probably will because these new hand rules are bull)
My favorite non-Reggie Miller player in the 90's was Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway. So of course I'm going to pick the freshman guard from East Chicago named Anfernee Brown. No brainer pick here.
I like the way my team turned out. Maybe we should send Painter our rosters and have an inter-squad scrimmage held. Next time we are drafting the "All Big Ten Douche Bag" team. That might have to wait until B1G season starts so we can see who is playing more consistently.
