Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
The Hopson vs. McCrae debate is an interesting one. I liked Hopson, and I'm not trying to bad mouth him, but it didn't seem like he had the desire to be great. It always seemed like he thought his 5 star All-American status would carry him through college. McCrae seems to have more humility and motivation.
I'm curious whether or not anyone else feels that Hopson had an incredibly slow three point shot. Almost like Tebow throwing a pass. So slow and deliberate. It seemed like he had trouble with the "catch and shoot", and creating his own shot from distance. McCrae can pop it right in your face even when you know it's coming. Hopson shot a decent 3 point percentage, but when he missed, he missed badly (airball, bricks, etc). Maybe we were spoiled by Lofton who NEVER missed by much.
On the flipside, I think Hopson (when determined) could attack the rim much more aggressively than McCrae. I don't mean dunks necessarily, I mean just insisting on beating his man. The problem was, he didn't come to be aggressive every game.
