    Good post. Calvin's season FT% .655, however, last 3 games (ewenc,UVA,Miami) FT% .769. Still, too many mental mistakes.

    When you have very little history "last 30 years" its easy to dismiss history boy! Grasp onto that one game tight! When you base your season on one game the outcome is inevitable! The L's are mounting!

    CJ has his "developmental" opportunities in his game, but his strengths significantly outweigh his deficiencies. The root cause of the Pack's inconsistent performances (not playing to potential) extends well beyond just one player.

    Thanks, duane11 for restoring sanity here with an intelligent comment with a factual basis.

    i have a hard time agreeing with this idiotic post, when you look at the facts...Leslie leads his team in scoring, is second in rebounds, and has just come off 3 straight double-doubles against good comp(unc,uva,miami)...his problems are fixable, starting with controlling stupid, reactionary, impulsive fouls in the backcourt when the other team is in the double bonus late in the game, followed by more passing when in the teeth of the defense to avoid stupid traveling/charging calls, or having stupid turnovers when surrounded by 2-3 players(hint, SOMEONE is wide open)...and keep practicing free throws, so as not to choke with the game on the line, when his next opportunity comes

    C.J. makes some bad mistakes sometimes. He is a player with a lot of ability, and athleticism. He can go off on you and can be unstoppable, or he can commit a stupid foul and cost you the game. He's definitely going to be a draft pick. I think the NBA would be a better place for him to go to improve his game. He has problems shooting a jumper, which is something he'll need at the next level.

    Give us a break please, you and this ridiculous bunch of "dimwits" would be complaining about anyone (even a talent the likes DT or MJ)just because you are not winning or don't have such that type talent. Are you guys on crack or what? Get Real or come up with something with substance.

    Whoever "they" is, "they" call him that because he's lost EVERY OTHER GAME he's ever played against The Flagship during his illustrious career at state college.

    Hope this helps.

    Pretty accurate Mo. He could be so much better if he had it mentally.

    Only if "joke" = most talented player in the ACC

    Then, yes.... He's a "joke".

    The biggest problem with having a player like Leslie is that the other teams learn which buttons to push to get inside his head and they are all too happy to exploit it.

    Darn right in this one. CJ has the talent, but not much in his thinking sometimes.

  • SportznutV2.0 Feb 3, 2013

    There could be an All ACC team of head cases and/or non chemistry players - every team has them - Calvin would certainly be a candidate

    well i'm as big of a wolfpack fan as you'll find. i actually agree with some of your points truth. he has some major attitude adjustments that he will need to make in order to compete at the next level. i certainly don't think you can effectively make the argument that we would be better off without him but i see why you might suggest that. you're spot on regarding the talent and the issue with the team needing more sound leadership. however, I think these guys are going to right the ship and peel off some big wins on the home stretch. look for them to be a viable threat in the tourney (both acc & ncaa). Obviously all pack fans are displeased with the recent turn of events however I'm choosing to look at the bright side. I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet.

    Towel Boy

    First, understand that I am not a State fan or a State hater. Pack fans, you can turn a blind eye to this if you like, but it's there for everyone to see.

    NC State would be better off without him this year and he should have turned pro last year. The bench would have been a bit lighter, but players that are starting to get time because of Brown's injury are showing promise. If you look at the Miami game, the "flashy" one-on-one move where he lost the ball with 3 teammates open with 11:00 remaining and the pack up 7 and the missed dunk with 10:00 remaining that would have put the pack up 8. Not to mention the stupid foul after he missed the 1-and-1 free throw in the final minute. Throw in the incessant whining about calls and not getting back on defense when he feels he's been fouled is inexcusable. He's been acting like a spoiled brat all year and it's going to carry over to the young guys. The talent level for this years team is arguably the best in the conference and they may have the best first 6 in the country...talent wise. When Leslie decided to return for this season, it should have been to return as the team leader, not to be the leader in stats. There's a difference!
