I’m gonna miss him.
Man…he can shoot! Good luck CWat. Gonna miss you.
It was a pleasure to watch you develop over the years.
Thanks for the #WatShot
keep building the body and work on his foot speed for defense on nba 3′s, you gotta think there is room for that jumpshot in the league. good luck wat! keep working
Looks like he has already added some weight. He also appeared to be getting up better (made strides in that department last year as well). Speed and athleticism are still going to be his Achilles heal… On the bright side, he is an elite shooter. If he can improve the quickness of his release without sacrificing shooting percentage, you gotta think someone takes a shot at em. Good luck Wat! You will be missed.
6’9″, .484 % from three last season. Surprised that he’s not on draft boards. Whatever Christian’s drawbacks, there is an NBA role for him.
CWat will find a spot in the NBA. Has a good work ethic, skill, and size. Could have a long career like Rashard Lewis, Robert Horry, Steve Novak….other big guys who can shoot.
Good luck to WAT in the Combine. These clip-s are excellent..amazing what game speed and pressure can do to a guys shot. Putting the ball on the floor and getting to the rim might be his biggest challenge.I hope WAT gets his shot at the NBA
WATFORD FOR THE WIN?????!!!!! YESSSSSSSS!!!!
Its unfortunate that he isn’t on draft boards because if he gets a chance he will last longer in the NBA than about 90% of the projected picks. They say he doesn’t have a defined position…… its because he is a mismatch. He could post up most NBA SF’s and PF’s would have to guard him tight on the perimeter for obvious reasons, stretching the defense. Plus he is the best trailing 3-point shooter I have ever seen……”But why is he always shooting trailing 3′s?”…. Because he not only gets back on defense everytime, but he is banging with the bigs getting rebounds and starting the break.
I’d convert him to point guard
It’s hard to believe that there are 60 guys better than Christian eligible for the draft… However he gets there, bottom line will be that he WILL get there, and he WILL find his niche and be a great role player for some team(s) for many years in the NBA.
FYI: He’s not participating in the combine.
can we please have this guy back for one more season??
One thing I noticed watching this film is how long it takes CWat to get a shot off. Watch how he catches a pass and then immediately drops the ball to his knees before raising the ball above his head to shoot. There is no doubt that he is a great shooter, but he needs too much time and space to get a shot off. I think this is one of the reasons that the NBA isn’t high on him. If he takes that much time to shoot in the NBA, he’ll get killed by the more athletic 3s at that level. I really like CWat, love the Wat Shot, and love everything he did for IU, but I’m not sure what his role is in the NBA. Best of luck to him, Vic, and Cody!
My thoughts exactly. Seems like a great guy and got better every year. Victor is the clear-cut poster boy for player development at IU, but Christian is living proof of it, as well. Hope he finds the right opportunity.
C Wat’s on all day from the Wat Shot Spot! I would love to see him make it in the NBA.
Yeah, he takes a little while to get his shot off, but for what he is going to be on the floor to do (spotting up behind the 3 pt line for a kick out pass, and his trailing on a fast break) he will have plenty of space and have plenty of time as well. Have to remember that the NBA gears their defenses around stopping the go to guys on the other team. All CWat will need is either an elite guard who can penetrate to the lane, or an elite post player who can get the ball out of double teams.
