I don't anticipate it, but it would be really nice if they could stay fresh.

I disagree on a couple of things - I think Selden has a great basketball IQ. You don't make the passes he makes without seeing all the moving parts naturally.

I think he simply isn't quite the sponge that some players are. He knows he should drive to the rim, but he just doesn't quite have the knack for how to best do it. It started to come along this year.

He's going to make an NBA roster and he'll have a long career as a pro. Sometimes it just takes guys a longer time to develop. Look at JJ Redick - the ACC's all time best shooter. He played four years under the best coach in history, and yet it still took him years and a couple different NBA teams to reach his potential.

At the next level, it isn't about talent, it's about dedication. I think Selden has all the tools to be a really good player. Not comparing his skill set to Redick, just that sometimes it takes guys awhile to figure out how they can use their specific talents best, and how to develop other ones.

Also, there is this idea that Svi is a bad defender, which I find ridiculous. He needs to get stronger, but his anticipation in on-ball defense is outstanding.
