Bulletin to Mike Jensen

Posted by at 4:40 PM

I really think that you should spend the time you have working on your offensive skills. Shoot lay-ups, hooks, reverse lay-ins, bank shots and tip drills about 50 percent of your time in the gym. Then spend another 40 percent of you time on foul shots and the last 10 percent on threes.

I like your overall effort, but you are very inconsistent as an offensive threat. I think you would really benefit from a whole offseason of shooting around the cup, with somebody big guarding you if possible. Thatís what I would do if I were you. Your long-range game, mid-range game and (surprise) defense are fine. Iíd just like to know for once that if we get the ball inside to you that youíre going to look good taking it to the hoop.

With your body type and skill set, you could have a decent pro career (Europe, overseas, possibly an eventual shot at the NBA) if you could add a down-low offense to your repertoire.
