2. “Kyle Anderson is 6’8” and playing the point.” DRINK!
We’ve known the entire offseason that 6’8” Kyle Anderson was a unique talent capable of manning the UCLA offense, be it in a slow-down, half-court offense or an uptempo, get-your-guns-and-go philosophy.
Of course, pundits may have missed that already. Many have already slated Larry Drew II as the player to watch in Westwood, because UCLA is famous for producing decent points and Drew happens to be your conventional point guard.
Except that Drew II running an offense would be disastrous, and we all know Kyle Anderson is the better ball-handler; if you’ve seen his work in China, you’d know that he’ll be running the show in Westwood.
So get used to the “Kyle Anderson is so unique, no one believed he’d play the point!” claims from announcers; you knew it all along.
