Default Scouting The Bibbinator

I read this from the main forum, I guess nothings changed huh?
_________________________________________________
Scouting Report: Ken Bowers [kenb@uclink4.berkeley.edu]

I didn't see Bibby enough to give a full scouting report, but I do have a couple of observations. I heard the comment several times last year that Bibby's game had matured with regard to running a team. That fits with what I saw. His assist total didn't jump much, but Arizona's style didn't lend itself to one player piling up assists. Bibby improved a bit in almost every important category from an excellent freshman season, and adding 4 ppg while increasing your shooting percentage is a nice step forward.
What astonished me when I watched Bibby play California is how bad he was at defending the dribble. Over the past two years, Cal has had four guys playing point--Prentice McGruder and Anwar McQueen shared the spot in 96-97 while Raymond King and Thomas Kilgore split time there in 97-98. Three of those guys could drive past Bibby at will. Only McQueen didn't, and he rarly tried to drive at all. I realize that I didn't watch nearly enough games to come to solid conclusion, but if what I saw was any indication, every NBA point guard better than John Crotty will light up Bibby in the early part of Bibby's career.

Even if NBA GMs thought that was the case I doubt it would change his draft status. He's a wonderful offensive performer and a good enough athlete to become a reasonable defender.

Wow, it seems like Mike hasn't really improved at all although his stats have. He's still a good shooter, a decent passer who doesn't rack upa lot of assists, and a bad/lazy defender.

if youve noticed lately he has been playing OK defense...he's staying in front of his man more and coming up with steals. cp3 didn't have a great shooting night, either.

Did you watch the last few minutes of the game?

CP3 burnt pass Bibby whenever he liked.

If we had some shotblockers it wouldn't be so bad to have Bibby. But there's nobody there to help when they blow by him. So I'm all for keeping Bibby if they can get us some shotblockers, but I don't see that happening.

BM52 had to block 2 shots for the Kings to win the game, thats just funny.

I was honestly more amazed when I found out Bibby shot 7-12 than when Miller blocked those 2 shots.

He seemed to try and play a little defense for Brooks. We will see when Muss is back at the helm. Just an observation.

Multiple players have said in the Bee that they like Brooks. They've kinda implied that they like him more while Kevin has implied he likes neither. Musselhead has lost the team.
