Isaiah Hicks New MixTape (For UNC Fans)

11 posts in this topic

I don't know that he will see the floor much, he is basically the same player that Johnson is.

I agree somewhat, but he seems to be more athletic and is obviously more bulkier than B.J. Unless Brice puts on weight, he might struggle; he's just not the player than Henson was. I'm actually really high on Hick's. I think he will be a solid two-way player.

Hicks will certainly have the opportunity to receive plenty of PT especially when we get down the stretch into ACC play.

Love the potential for our rotation this year.

If you look at both their strengths and weaknesses they are the same. Strengths: athleticism, and runs the floor well. Weaknesses: strength and post play. BJ is 6'9" 195 and Hicks is 6'8" 205.

They both have the same weaknesses, but I believe Hicks' aren't as prevalent as BJ's. Just from watching a few of his games it looks like he tries to find his game instead of looking for the game to come to him ala BJ.

Also Hicks doesn't have to be a scorer, especially if the Heels land Wiggins. If the ol' ball coach pulls a trick out of his hat then Hicks (if he starts) would be the last scoring option on the floor. I really like Hick's for his speed, agility, and defense. If he can hold Parker to 15 instead of 25, then the Heels are in business.

Don't be dumb. He will get a lot of playing time. You don't bring in this big of a recruit and sit him the whole season unless you are red shirting him, which they aren't. Also, Roy rotates his players in and out a lot so he and BJ will get a lot of PT.

A lot of playing time? Come on BJ was only on the court for 10 mins per game, I could see Hicks getting something like that but that is not what I consider a lot of PT.

Hicks will play and play often unless Roy wants to screw up half of a season again

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
