Kam was always somewhat of a mystery to me, he obviously was not good here and part of that was definitely he just didn't perform and his skill set didn't totally translate against college competition.
That being said, I do think he ended up playing a role that utilized his strengths in the worst way possible. Most of the time he became a floor spacer standing in the corner or was used as a baseline finisher 4. I never completely gave up on what he would become with the ball in his hands a little more, but I don't blame JB for never getting there when he had more reliable creators on the roster.
I remember he had a really solid game early in his freshman year against Syracuse- 10 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, and if I recall correctly we used him in the middle of that zone quite a bit. Interesting stat on Kam too is his career high in minutes played (30) came in his first career game against Hillsdale. It's almost like JB thought he had something special in Kam and almost immediately didn't like what he saw and everything went downhill from there.
