Can the offense run through KBJ instead of NAW?

Can the offense run through him like it's 1988? He's led the team in points every game without 5, and he's shown some ability to kick the ball back out (even though that's rare).

Is it possible for Buzz to draw up an offense going through him as the chief facilitator AND scorer? I don't have any doubts he's our best scoring option in a 1 on 1 situation, NAW gets blocked if he's near the basket and everyone else looks to pass first. However, KBJ may be our best option to get teams into switching situations if he kicks out of doubles vs forcing a shot. Right now he almost always take it up regardless.

Work plays to get the ball inside then have the outside guys run back-cuts and fill in on the weakside if KBJ gets it deep in the post. The assumption would be NAW is more effective not initiating the offense and Bede becomes a threat from the outside. If they don't double in the post it's a ~60% chance of getting pts with KBJ in iso.

It's definitely not an offense you see much in college given the pace of the game, but it might be our only option.
