Just responding to what you said. This is a much better team at sharing the ball and every other way than they were. The new players adapted to this level and the team drastically changed with the addition of Bouknight and Jackson.
I never liked it in an important game, tomorrow is an important game. Honor them and I guess you can start them but the four of them on the court together is a really bad lineup and I don't want to get down big early. First sign of any troubles sub them out.
He's buddies with Rothstein, Goodman, Zags etc. It's a great thing after years of what seems like a bit of an adversarial relationship with UConn and the tri-state and national guys.
On first glance it seems totally ridiculous but I'm pretty sure the buyout remains $0 with Edsall.
Don't pull a Nelson, I didn't compare him to them as a player, they are obviously both much better. I said they jerked their heads back all the time to draw calls, Gillespie draws fouls all the time by backing people down and creating contact. It's what good smart players do.
I was responding to the comment that his offense is somewhat overblown, it's not. He has been bad on offense lately, don't need him to play like he did offensively last night but he needs to get back to making layups which he did last night.
Agreed, it should and will factor in. It isn't 100% numbers, there is the eye test as well and we pass that. Anyone watching knows we're easily a top 25 team when healthy, they probably don't want a potential second round matchup with UConn playing a #1 seed.
