Thoughts on Bo McCalebb? 

Post#1 » by jman3134 » Thu Sep 29, 2011 4:11 am

What are your thoughts on McCalebb? Do you think that he will come over to the NBA after his contract expires, or is he going to continue playing in Europe where he is a star?

Also, I wrote this article on Bo McCalebb entitled, Why No Bo? The Story of Front Office Cognitive Dissonance. Here's a link if you are interested: http://bit.ly/oCptcE

Let me know what you think.

I would think he stays in Europe. He's going to get a better contract there, he's going to have a bigger role, and he really isn't the prototypical point guard in the NBA which is part of the reason why he's not there now.

A player like Farmar isn't a prototypical point guard, yet he's been playing the position for awhile now.

McCalebb is just one of those players who takes time to get better. He could play in the NBA if he wanted to. There's nothing really preventing him other than a coach not trusting in him.

I only saw few games from McCallebb, so I´ll just throw my thoughts...could he have a role similar to JJ Barea?

I think Bo would have a similar role to Bobby Jackson from his Kings' days.

Great read jman, Bo could make it in the NBA & he's obviously much improved since his UNO days but I think he will stay in Europe where he is idolised & makes good crust.
