    Default Kobe Paras in CSUN

    This thread is exclusively for discussions pertaining to Kobe Paras' stint at the California State University Northridge Matadors Men's Basketball Team in the US NCAA. After his unsuccessful stint in Creighton, we can only hope Kobe could find success in his new school and team so that one day he becomes the first homegrown Filipino player ever drafted in the NBA.

    For recording purposes, Kobe's stats in Creighton will still be kept in the first post, and his stats in CSUN will be posted on the top of his stats in Creighton.

    I guess so. Also, the thread starter doesn't care about that thread anymore.

    PARAS: His highlight came in the second half, when he drove along the baseline and rose up for a one-handed slam. He had another nice take. He also hit a jumper. … Paras brings energy and effort to practice, and he has intriguing offensive talent. But the Jays have relied on three proven veterans on the wing so far.

    watching the video and seeing KP play, parang larong mayaman? he wasn't hustling or being aggressive and seems lost in the plays.
    Mabuhay Team Pilipinas!

    It's going to take some time for KP to learn Coach Greg's system. The one thing going for him is that by now he is starting to get used to the American style of basketball, as if his stints in Middlebrooks and Cathedral are not enough. For now, I do not expect him to dominate right away, but I do want Coach Greg to at least give him enough burn to actually learn the system; Sink or Swim, ika nga.

    For now, I want KP to improve on his game, learn team play and discipline, and work hard on both ends of the floor, especially defense, where it really matters most. If he does this, he will go a long way, and the faster he does this, the sooner Coach Greg will trust him to carry Creighton to the US NCAA tournaments in the future.

    Let me say this in Visayan, "Depensa lang sa', Dong, para ganahan si Koots (Coach) nga ibabad ka sa game."

    I just hope Kobe gets playing time against Oral Roberts and ASU. With conference play looming, Kobe might get to play exclusively in garbage time. Let us just hope he gets the breaks and eventually end up in the rotation come Big East and NCAA Tournaments time. Just keep hanging on and be patient out there!

    UCLA IG is following Kobe Paras?

    https://www.instagram.com/uclambb/?hl=en

    I remember UCLA IG removed Kobe from IG before and now they are following him again?

    I wonder what could be the reason.....

    Just a theory: They will get him back after this season...

    ^^^Sorry for this absolute nonsense

    It only follows 49 accounts and Kobe is one of them. That means something.

    ..........

    When junior Marcus Foster caught a three-quarter-court outlet pass, dribbled once and finished with a one-handed dunk against Akron, the CU reserves jumped to their feet and turned to Mintz, who pretended to faint as he wilted into their arms. Freshmen Kobe Paras and Jordan Scurry were leading bench-wide shoulder shimmy moves after a Cole Huff 3-pointer a few minutes earlier.

    Right after Toby Hegner’s sequence of back-to-back dunks late in last week’s win at Nebraska, Paras skipped around the bench, redshirt freshman Martin Krampelj flexed both arms, Scurry placed his hand over his mouth, and Mintz simply sat and smiled.

    They’ve held each other back. They’ve hopped up and down. They’ve screamed and yelled. It’s not something they coordinate or script much — they just try to give their pure reaction.

    And it makes a difference, according to senior guard Maurice Watson.

    “Every time we score, they’re doing a celebration on the sideline,” Watson said. “It’s really hyping us up. I really don’t think those guys get enough credit for what they do on the sideline.”

    Positivity matters, he said.

    Paras confirmed this. He’s played only 47 total minutes so far, but he’s been encouraged every time out by the helpful words from teammates. During a timeout or a pause in the action, he’ll hear things — “just keep playing hard” or “you got this” — and it’ll help him immediately reset after maybe missing a shot or botching an assignment.

    So Paras is just trying to lift his teammates in that same manner.

    “It’s great that what we do from the bench can spread to everyone,” Paras said. “I want to be there for my team. Every timeout, I’m going to sprint out on the court. High-five them. Just bring energy.”

    In the meantime, Paras hasn’t stopped working to improve.

    He was out running sprints well after Creighton’s Sunday practice because he thinks his conditioning needs work. He’d like to be a better shooter, defender, rebounder, leader. All aspects of his game require his attention, Paras said.

    That’s the mentality you must have, according to coach Greg McDermott.

    The freshmen can party on the bench after lob-dunks and fast-break 3-pointers, but they’d better still be mentally engaged in the game.

    “Make sure you’ve prepared yourself in case your number’s called,” McDermott said.

    The same way Krampelj did. He logged 19 total minutes during Creighton’s first five contests. Then senior center Zach Hanson went down with an injury. Krampelj has averaged 11.4 minutes per game since.

    So with that in mind, guys like Mintz, Paras, Scurry and sophomore Ronnie Harrell plan to remain committed to getting better in practice — while doing all they can to support teammates until that moment they’re asked to step on the court.

    “Our team is making history,” Mintz said. “That’s making me proud. I don’t mind waiting patiently on a winning team.”

    Yep...I really hope Kobe gets another breakout game where he can show to the coaching staff that he belongs...quite sadly, his conditioning is not up to par compared Foster and Thomas...

    He really needs to work on his conditioning...

    I don't think they need kobe, since they already recruited 4 top 50 espn rank player. Maybe they are just interested in kobe's progress.

    I'm sure Kobe is stating right where he is, to go back to UCLA he'd have to red shirt and not play for an entire season.

    Creighton is a good place for him, it's a powerhouse team and if Kobe puts in the work and stays positive he should be a dominant player by his junior year.

    Yeah right, i also expect him to get significant minutes by his JR or SR year.

    So kobe really has this documentary. Does anyone know when it will be shown?

    His coach says in February....https://twitter.com/coachmiddlebrks/...69193575215104



    Personally, I don't mind if one day UCLA actually gets Kobe back...That's where he was supposed to go anyway....I don't mind if he doesn't play for a year being a redshirt transfer...As long as he's a starter for the following year and becomes eligible for 2018 NBA draft... ...I mean, it's going to be an interesting event for Kobe imo....just my opinion...I think I'm too crazy for saying all of this...forgive me...

    I think UCLA has now realized and recognized how big Kobe Paras really is in the Philippines... lol


    Being featured in Fox Sports is something, let alone to have your own Documentary...that's really something...

    I think they believe Kobe is a potential NBA player and the hype surrounds Kobe Paras...
