Just four games in, I would say we have a pretty good understanding of the part each guy on the team needs to play. We also know what they shouldn't be doing.
For instance, Julius Randle, while perfectly capable of it, should not be trying to grab a rebound and take the ball the length of the court and score. Get the ball to a guard, post up strong and dominate from there.
Willie Cauley-Stein is an energy guy. He comes in the game and give you defense, rebounding, hustle, etc. He does not give you offense. Sure, he can finish an alley-oop, but please stop giving him the ball on the block and letting him make a move.
Andrew Harrison will run the offense and use his size to get in the lane and be strong with the ball. Aaron Harrison and James Young will be the scorers, guys to either hit a three or create their own offense.
Dakari Johnson rebounds and makes great post moves. He's not a great shot-blocker. He needs to stay in front of his man on defense and use his big body to keep them from getting close to the basket.
Marcus Lee should be taking notes from Cauley-Stein. He's an energy guy, although with better offense than WCS, but Kentucky needs his shot blocking and rebounding more than anything.
Alex Poythress is filling his role better than anyone. He knows he's not someone who creates offense. He's going to crash the boards, create havoc inside and use his athleticism while also knocking down open threes when the opportunity presents itself—although he needs to do better than 1-of-6.
