    Is he an ancient scientist or a future professional basketball player?

    Right now we desperately need a selfish scorer on the wing, assuming he can truly light it up.

    Anyone can put up impressive individual stats, but can he palm the ball in the corner for 15-20 seconds and then kick it to a guarded teammate with 1 second left on the shot clock?

    It's the shots Tay doesn't take that makes him a true artist.

    People in that gym actually had to witness this guy missing 44 three pointers in a game? Appropriately named Jack.

    When your making 3's at a .483 clip, you have to take that shot.

    Otto Porter struggled against Indiana. IU played a ton of zone and G'town basically passed the ball around the perimeter until someone was open long enough to chuck up a three ball. Even though he didn't have a great game, he still put together a pretty decent Boxscore: Indiana Hoosiers vs. Georgetown Hoyas - Box Score - November 20, 2012 - ESPN

    Didn't see Shabazz Muhammed play against Georgia, but he did score 21 points in pretty close game, check out the number of ft attempts, pretty impressive for a freshman in just his second game, he may be like Harden and Kevin Martin in terms of having a knack for getting to the line: UCLA Bruins vs. Georgia Bulldogs - Box Score - November 20, 2012 - ESPN

    I think the opposing coach made adjustments, too. After Jack nailed his 20th 3-pointer of the game, coach figured his team better start contesting that shot.

    Of all people, Melo had to be the one to call out the kid for being a chucker.
    ...Like Melo's never thought about taking 100+ shots before.

    A kid on the other team scored 70 points in a losing effort.

    "We definitely made it a focus to stop him," said the kid that scored 138.

    Good thing they focused on stopping that guy or he might have put up 100 in a losing effort.

    Otto Porter against Mount St.Mary's: 17 points on 7/8 shooting and 1/1 from beyond the arc. 13 Rebounds, 2 asts, a steal and 2 blocks. TO's.
    This kid is a player, I think he may end up being a better version of Danny Granger. He doesn't appear to be an offensive force, but Georgetown doesn't exactly run a system that allows a players total game to come shining through.

    Anyone that can put up 17 points against Mount St. Mary's can ball, in my book. By the way, I think you spelled his first name backwards.

    I posted this on another thread-

    I wouldn't mind seeing Shabazz attacking the basket while Knight and Singler stretch the floor. That kid can flat out get to the rim. I think that he'll be among NBA leaders in FTA per game. I like McAdoo, but he feels like a tweener- can't shoot well enough to play 3, can't rebound well enough for the 4. He feels like a poor man's Antawn Jamison. I'm intrigued by Otto Porter. He can just play ball. He's a natural passer. He's shown a huge improvement in his perimeter shooting. He could be a bonafide stopper in the NBA.

    Alex Len and Archie Goodwin are players to watch. Len was a beast against Kentucky.
