During the "2009-2009 season" that isn't an actual thing?

The guy is "dominate," which is a verb and not the adjective "dominant" which is what I hope you were looking for?

Sometimes played on the wing but normally on the 4 despite being only 6'2"? And at 6'2" he was a (the word I hope you meant) "DOMINANT" player?

I would really love to know which 6'2" forward in the Big East last year was what can reasonably be called "dominant.

Well I wouldnt exactly call him 'dominant', but he was definitely on teams scouting reports and a starter.

He has 23 double doubles in the last 2 years

I'll give it 16 more hours or so.

He is 6'3 in shoes however.

The only name that is popping up for me is Paul Harris. Although he was far from dominant and is taller than 6'2. Was he a PF or more of a SF?

Although it doesn't matter, I'm sure that's wrong, but it's the only guy I can think of.

This is correct.
He measured at 6'3 w/ shoes, 6'2 w/out shoes at the New Jersey 'group' workout this last weekend.

I know he started at PF for the orangeman.
Their starting line-up was-
PG-Flynn
SG/SF-Devendorph (sp)
SF/SG-Routins (sp)
PF- Harris
C- Some big guy can't even pronounce his name.

I believe Harris averaged something like 13 and 8.
He played mostly in the high post and did a lot of damage on the offensive glass from what I saw of him. They never ran a play to him on the wing either.

Is he the next Barkley??

In the 6OT game against UConn, he had 29/22. Only 1 point away from a 30/20 game.

I didn't think he'd measure as small as 6-2. That's extremely small for the position he was playing and also the stuff he was doing. Excellent rebounder for his size. He also averaged 2.4 offensive boards a game, so it's not as if he was getting easy boards.

Wow, he only measured 6'3 w/shoes? I thought he was supposed to be 6'5. Damn, that really hurts his chances of being drafted, he would be able to play SG at best in the NBA (although he would be the best rebounding SG in the league per/48). It's really pretty amazing that he was able to successfully play as a combo forward at only 6'3 in the Big East.

The dude probably should have concentrated on football and could have made the NFL. But if he sticks with basketball he could possibly have a decent career overseas, maybe even see a small contract in the NBA, there are definitely some foreign leagues (and an NBA team or two) where an athlete of his calibre would be valuable, despite his height. Hassan Adams comes to mind.

So he isn't 6'2" (if he's 6'3" in shoes, he's 6'3" as far as basketball is concerned; basketball, predominantly, is played in shoes), and he isn't dominant, and he isn't really a power forward.

If you asked who a pretty good 6'3" combo forward in the Big East was, I probably could have got that one.

Umm he is 6'2.

You don't measure your height w/ shoes on do you??
I never said 'his basketball height is 6'2' did I??
I said his height is 6'2, which is correct.

He started games at the PF spot and spent most of his minutes at the PF. Meaning he is a PF.

So he is a 6'2 PF.
as far as being dominant, your right he was not dominant, but definitely a damn good player and a warrior who everyone would want on their team.
Most of his game doesnt translate to the stat sheet


You mad I stumped you or something??

I knew who you were talking about because there was no one else in the conference that was even close to that description, and I knew your premise was flawed.

The only height that's relevant as far as basketball is concerned is your height with shoes on, since you play the game with shoes on.

He's not a power forward, he's a combo forward that played in a small lineup. Would you have called Randy Foye a "power forward" when he played the 4 in Villanova's four-guard offense?

And he certainly is not a dominant player. Decent? Solid? Maybe even "good"? Sure. Not dominant.

I think you need to read through the thread before you dig a deeper hole. Read some posts because right now you're looking like a certified idiot.

Paul Harris had the misfortune of growing up in Niagra Falls, if were from Florida or Alabama he would have been on the football field by now playing TE, RB, LB, or S.

His leaping ability, strength, and frame is built ideally for football.

He was one of my favorite college basketball players, he made some dumb plays a lot of times but he would give you some very good plays.
