Wiggins!

306 posts in this topic

You'd better hope we get some kind of inside game or this year won't be any better than last year.  Wiggins would have helped alleviate some of the problems we have inside but now it looks like Hairston will be the main focus of our offense.  At least he should be.

Unless you want McAdoo to be one of the focuses on offense

Paige is going to have to find his inner Kendall Marsahll and McAdoo is going to have to find his inner Sam Perkins in order for UNC to win a ship, hopefully it happens.

I don't see how you can go to barely a top 25 team to a title contender with one player, maybe that's just me.

You were essentially advocating for as much a few weeks ago weren't you? I mean unc to me is a top 20-25 team next year. You said they'd be a title contender with Wiggins...

Do some research before trying to one up me.

 

We are projected to be a top 10-15 team that has a weakness at small forward, where that Kansas team lost all five of its starters. If Wiggins would have chosen UNC, he would have filled the hole that UNC has at small forward and made the Heels a very dangerous team. Now we have to hope that Tokoto can step up even though I think we will go with a line-up of Paige, McDonald, Hairston, Hicks, McAdoo.

McAdoo needs to greatly improve for me to want him to be our #1 scoring option.  He's not consistent at all.  He has no post moves.  He rushes his shots all the time.  Don't get me wrong, we would be way worse without him, but give me Tyler Hansbrough every day of the week over McAdoo.

UNC was also projected as a top 10 team last year...what has changed other than a loss of your best scorer? Did McAdoo improve greatly? Did he get tougher? Did your other bigs learn a post move? Honestly, between the beginning of last year and the beginning of next year the only thing has has changed is Marcus Paige. Is he really enough to take you from a borderline top 25 team to a top 10 team? IDTS.

 

I root for State.

I think that Hairston is going to have to average at least 20ppg and JMM is going to have to be close to that for unc to be relevant.  I don't think the freshmen are going to make that much of an impact, in fact I think they are comparable to unc's freshman class from last year.  I think the SF position is going to be a problem as well maybe not so much scoring because I think L Mac can get 8ppg but defensively.  I mean Leslie is a terrible defender and Tokoto is just not ready and they are going to have to guard guys like Parker, Hood, Anderson, Harris, and McKie so I think that is a big problem for the heels.  Like last year I think these heels have little room for error especially with Bullock being gone and missing out on Wiggins.

You'd have to ask Coach Williams that question. 

 

PJ Hairston and JMM are both going to be strong candidates for first team All-ACC next season, and both have potential to be All Americans. I expect Paige to improve. I know people like you and BigQueefDaddy probably DVR every UNC game, but you should have noticed how greatly Paige improved just over the course of ACC play. 

 

UNC is going to be just fine next year. Deal with it. Or live in denial. Doesn't matter to me!

Duke doesn't have a center and are going to depend on two players who have never touched an ACC ball next season. They always have lofty expectations but let's face it, guy, Duke won't be as good as they were last season. That is a fact.

 

Last year was your year man! You guys had the best center in the NCAA, a legitimate dude who can go off for 35 on any given night, and of course the best player in the history of the ACC in Ryan Kelly. 

 

You guys blew it man! You couldn't get it done! Just think about if you could of lived up to the pressure and taken care of business aganst Louisville! man so close!! Imagine the amount of bullshit you could talk on an internet message board if Duke didn't choke! 

 

But hey, I'm sure Duke will look fantastic in November and December. 

 

HOW SWEET IT AINT
