Sports On My Mind
Josh McRoberts is turning pro. The 6′ 10″ 240-pound
sophomore Duke power forward/center is projected to be only a power
forward in the professional ranks. But what exactly is a Josh McRoberts
as a basketball player?
Statistically he averages 13 ppg, 7.9 rpg and 3.5 apg, adequate
stats for a college player, but not at all special. He possess average
ball-handling ability for a n NBA “four” and is weak around the rim. He
has no reliable jumper from the elbow, no go-to low post move. This is
not an indictment on McRoberts. This is the reality of a sophomore in
college who has plenty of room to grow into a stable pro.
