Hamilton came to a hasty decision after his frustration built up on a lot of things (break-up w/ gf, wanting more touches on offense in the paint, injuries, disappointing seaosn as a team, etc.) and now he is reconsidering his quick decision.
Hamilton's game has shown continuous improvement during his time at ISU. I can see how he would be frustrated because the coaches only seemed to view him as a defensive stopper and rebounder. IMO they didn't do a great job of running plays to get Hamilton shots this past year.
IMO Hamilton could be an all Big 12 player by his senior year. You hate to lose kids with that type of upside. I've seen posters saying he made his decision & not wanting anyone on the team that isn't committed to the program. I think we need to remember he is a 20 year old kid- so he'll make some rash decisions. Second, even before he stepped foot in Ames he was dedicated to get his weight up so he could contribute his freshman year.
Can we please quit referring to these guys as "kids." Young adults, 21 year old adult, etc but they aren't kids
Seriously....for those of you questioning whether to let Ham back if he wants it..... Why would you not want a kid like that back and be a little sympathetic towards him?? He plays his *** off and we should welcome him with open arms if he chooses to come back.
Our guards also need to make quicker decisions on whether or not to throw it into the post when one of our bigs is posting up. That way they don't get pushed out 16 feet before the ball gets passed to them (ala Brackins), or just have any play completely breakdown cause they stood there for 4 seconds deciding what to do.
