This is good. Everything you wanted to know about Kevin Pangos but didn't know who to ask. Ok..not everything, but a little more insight to the new kid from Canada.

Anyone see Hollinger's comment about Pangos? Said he was "brutal" and "doesn't have a career in the states, Europe maybe." Ouch.

Pangos definitely is not a one-and-doner like some of those kids on the floor. That being said, there's lots of players in the NBA that "didn't have a career in the states" coming into D1 ball. Hollinger knows his NBA, but has always been spotty on evaluating young talent - it's not his forte.

Great segment on the new Bulldog. Loved what I was hearing, the kid seems to have the right amount of passion for the game.

Pardon me for asking, but why post something (especially a negative quote without context) about a much celebrated kid with a lot of accolades that our coach and team welcomed into the fold w/ open arms? Who knows or cares at this point if he'll be an NBA player. But I do know he'll be a Zag that hopefully will thrive in our system and help bring our guards strength over the next few years up to "Gaurd U's" old standards. The book on him has yet to be written. But I for one am excited he is coming here and have high hopes- as I do with any new recruit!

Here is Hollinger's tweet (http://twitter.com/johnhollinger/status/56936333213569025):


Kinda brutal, actually. Will have career in Europe but probably not here. RT @EleateSports how was kevin pangos?

I think he's pretty off-base, or at least premature. Let the kid get to campus before declaring him a bust. And what game was Hollinger watching? Pangos didn't look as bad as half his teammates, I'll tell ya that.

My god, how can someone pass this kind of judgement after watching a kid play for 15 minutes against the top competition in his age group? He didn't have a great game, but he was far from brutal

Yeah I'm not sure what he did that qualified as brutal. Maybe his shooting? I love his attitude and passion I truly believe Bell, Pangos, and Dranginis will be the greatest collection of GU guards assembled on the same team at the same time. This recruiting class is special.

Don't kill the messenger! I was just quoting an NBA guy's opinion. I don't share that opinion....

Karnowski looks a lot more impressive in the scrimmage footage. I think it's safe to say that run and gun isn't his style

Here's what I tweeted earlier about John Hollinger's writing skills:


Kinda brutal, actually. Will have career boring people to death with pointless statistics but probably not with real analysis. RT @BasketballFans how was john hollinger?

I am just hoping his last dunk wasn't on Mar 27th 1994.

I think this thread is sorta funny. The kid hasn't played one game yet and already he is sliced and diced. What I saw in the game was a very solid player that didn't have much around him to look good. Pangos is the kind of kid that can come in and play a year or two, get his confidence up and his game a bit more advanced and then just catch fire. I'm looking for great things from a kid that is a real team guy, they don't always stand out initially.

Well, my post was tongue in cheek, obviously.

I think he is going to be a great Zag. He 'knows' basketball and has a better build and shot than Stockton. I like that we got this kid.

hahaha, for the last 5 minutes, I've been sitting here trying to figure out the signifigance of March 27, 1994....just figured it out. LOL.

Easy, lets get the class some games first before we start anointing...

Just saw this video on FlagrantFouls youtube channel. If you have some extra time, watch some of the shooting drills that they have Pangos do. The kid is in great shape and he hardly ever misses in drills I've watched.
