Chapman, OTOH, may eventually not be a good starter, but I don't think ANYONE is basing it PURELY on his mentality (thank goodness).
I'm just an excellent evaluator of talent.
And I just know that Hoover will make a good starter, or will improve his trade stock by putting up good numbers as a Louisville starter.
I felt they should see if Chapman could start, but I never thought he'd make a good starter.
I don't always make player evaluations. But when I do, I drink Dos Equis.
