That is completely irrational, so no matter the facts, the stats, and what the experts say you won't change your mind.  That's like someone saying Ray Allen is better then LeBron James, and you show them stats, facts, film, and what the experts say and they still want to try and tell you Allen is better.  Makes absolutely no sense.  

 

The reasons you listed for why you think Berry is better were wrong and I proved that to you so why is that so hard for you to understand?  You said Berry was a better shooter with better range, that was BS because I showed you how much of a better shooter Jones was from 2 and from 3.  Those are facts that you can't dispute.  You said defensively Berry was better and I showed you that Jones lead the league in steals and is a finalist for defensive player of the year, once again those are facts you can't dispute.  You are calling it speculation or opinion and that can't be further from the truth, it's facts.  The fact is Jones is better then Berry.  Jones is a better shooter, percentage wise from 2 and 3, she scores more points, racks up more assists, gets more steal and is better defensively.  

 

 

But see that is where you are missing the point, it's not that I like Jones more it's that right now Jones is a better player then Berry in every major category. It's not about liking, it's about being objective.

 

 

Well first off I have an iPad, iPhone, and an iMac and none of them have ever corrected my "some" to "sum".  Plus look how you spelled iPhone, if you really were posting from your iPhone it definitely would have corrected you and put the lowercase "i" in front.  Secondly you said you watched "highlights" of these players not that you actually have seen them play in person.  I have actually watched them play not just on youtube highlights.  I also don't just go off rankings but that is the only way I can explain to ignorant people like yourself that #1 is better then #12.  

 

 

Then explain why you think that is.  Is it his size, shooting ability, passing ability, how he sees the floor, or his strength?  You can't just make a blanket statement and expect people to just buy it.  Hell I could say Leron Black is better then Trey Lyles but that doesn't mean it's true.  

 

Jones is the top 1 or 2 PG in the class because of his feel for the game, his court vision, his quickness, his ability to create, and his ability to finish.  He needs to get stronger and could be a better 3 point shooter but he will get that when he gets to college.  

 

Like I said I have watched these kids play, not just youtube highlights like yourself.  As far as simple minded come on son I back up my posts with factual information so until you do that keep that mouth shut.  

 

 

Really?  Do you have a problem with reading comprehension?  I said Jones' feel for the game, his court vision, his quickness, his ability to create, and his ability to finish were the strengths of his game.  He is quicker then Berry and is a better passer, he can also finish around the rim better.  They both need to work on their outside shots and Berry definitely has the strength advantage over Jones.  

 

I am not a unc fan but I have given you FACTS on why I think Jones is better then Berry, I am still waiting on you to say ONE reason why you think Berry is better.  You have yet to bring anything to the table on why you feel this way.  It's been a one sided discussion with me backing up my opinion and you basically just saying "well Berry is better".  Why is he better?  That's how having a discussion works, you need to back up your opinions with facts.

 

 

Yes but also the FG percentage tells the difference, Jones shot 57% from the field where Berry shot 45%, and Jones shot 46% from 3 while Berry shot 41%.  So basically Jones scored more and shot a better percentage then Berry, so no way does it show Berry did better all around.  Jones has completely dominated the AAU circuit so far and that is why he is the #1 PG and is ranked higher and is a better all around player then Berry.

 

 

Bumping this for BCD at his request...  Browsed some random posts in this thread for you to show you what I'm talking about...

 

Careful correcting the grammar of others in such a casual social setting...  It's the Internet, not a spelling contest...

Nice work!  I will be better about using than vs then.  Now you need to work with your unc buddy, sevy, and help him learn how to write complete sentences so we can understand what he is trying to say.

That's what my thinking was its only a forum now I admit definitely didn't reread any of my crap, but hey my bad. Didn't know their was grammar police on here glad I could give you something to do. That was my point with the sweeter vest is that seems to be what rich old white guys tend to be wearing every time I see a UNC game which from how you choose to brag that I have this & that pretty much how I pictured you, could be wrong think I'm accurate though. To the rest of the forum people I agree this is some complete BS & its definitely got more to do with it then basketball. See I know who I am as a person so definitely not hiding behind my computer which is what I told you when your trying to act all hard. If you wanna get me a ticket that's cool by me buddy. DO I get to pick the game?? poo I'll take a butt kicking from you & your buddies since that seems to be the type of person you are could be wrong, but doubt it. A free ticket lets do it. Does the flight come with it as well? Never been to a Carolina game so you would be helping me mark off something on my bucket list. SO if your serious tell me where to sign or whatever I'm down. Till next time pussilkat.

Dude I am 34 and I don't wear "sweeter vests", so I am far from a rich, old, white guy.  When I go to Duke games I normally wear a Duke t-shirt.  

 

I am not trying to act hard at all, like I said I am at the same spot every Sunday for home games anyone on this board can find me if they want to.  I have never needed my buddies to handle my business for me so you don't have to worry about that.  Yes you can pick the game but why in the hell would I pay for you a plane ticket?  Like I said if you're man enough to show up to my tailgate I will give you a ticket to ANY game you want this year.
