Couldn't agree more. And you nailed it on our greatest concern. What the hell Leaky? Were you hurt?Platek +27
Everyone else was in single digits.
I'm certainly not saying that +/- is the end all, be all. However, I watched the game, thought he played pretty well all-around and the stats bear that out. He had 4 steals, 3 boards, 2 blocks, an assist and no turnovers in 20 minutes. The shooting is maddening, but give credit where it is due.
The burgeoning Platek Wars are funny. I don't "love" his game or anything, but I find myself defending what he can offer in a strange way. I also don't think he has this cult following, but more of an optimistic contingency that wants to see him thrive because the team desperately needs it.
Anyway, there is a bigger problem in the lineup and it is the junior.
