Clemson basketball was not a powerhouse basketball program by any standards in 2013-14, but they did have a star in first team All-ACC selection, K.J. McDaniels. McDaniels was Clemson’s LeBron James, their savior if you will, as he led, or came close to leading the team in every statistical category.
McDaniels ranked first in scoring, rebounding, blocks, steals and three-pointers made. He was also second in assists, and so on and so forth. He single-handedly led a 10 win improvement for the Tigers program in 2013-14 (23-13) and pushed Clemson to the the NIT semifinals. Yet, the dynamic wing player tumbled down the 2014 NBA Draft board thanks in large part to a couple of poor individual workouts.
