We?


"we" yes, did you even read the post I was responding to with that post? "Duke fans know all about unc, blah, blah, blah". We was a perfectly acceptable term.

If Wiggins goes to UNC it'll be another very talented top 5-8 UNC team and IMO nothing more. The experience and talent at Michigan State, Kentucky, Louisville, and Duke will put them in a class by themselves. Duke and UK are teams to beat next year...with MSU really on their heels. Heck...UNC could be 3rd in the conferences with CJ Fair announcing his return. Not a championship team for Roy though and IMO it's not how Roy wins. He typically wins by getting superstars to stay in college. His chance to win it all agin was with Barnes, Henson etc...he HAS to have the most talented player at every position to win. He'll have that at one position if he gets Wiggins but the rest of those guys are role players on a championship squad.

Just hard to win a title when two coaches like K and Cal both have possibly their most talented teams in last decade. I think the Jay Williams team is most talented team K had (this one rivals that IMO). This will clearly be most talented team Cal has ever had. Same COULD be said for Izzo's team this year.

UNC is going to be a force next season with or without AW.

This was a bad UNC team last year and they still won 25 games, played in the ACC championship game, and won a game in March. It would have been interesting to see what they could have done if they were rightfully awarded a 6 seed.

I'm not saying UNC wouldn't be really good...they would be. But Duke, UK, MSU, Louisville, and maybe Syracuse are going to be better teams. You can't just say "we have all this talent and Roy is the coach so we will be the best." You have to look historically at teams that Roy has won titles with. Those teams had the best PGs in the nation (Felton and Lawson), the best bigs in the nation (May, Hansbrough), the best shooters/scorer in the nation (Ellington and McCants). The 05 team had the most talented overall freshmen in the nation (Marvin Williams) so IMO he was a bonus. Then you look at the bench that Roy always has...Danny Green for the 09 team was the best 6th man in the nation. Jackie Manuel filled that role for the 05 team.

 

IMO what would make UNC a national title contender (maybe even moreso than getting Wiggins) would be if either Brice Johnson or Joel James became a dominant post scorer. IMO that isn't going to happen between their freshmen and sophomore years. They were both ridiculously raw players.

 

Roy isn't K. He isn't Pitino. He isn't Izzo. He isn't Boeheim. He and  Cal are both of the same mold. They HAVE to have the best players at every position for them to win titles. Roy isn't even close to that this coming year so until he proves me wrong or until Joel James or Brice Johnson become dominant post scorers...it's not happening for UNC with this team.

Roy Williams has 2 national titles in 10 years at UNC and has 7 final fours total. UNC has been to the ELITE 8 six of the past eight years and the two down years he has had at UNC has been after roster turnover from losing NBA players. 

 

K's 4 national championships at Duke speak for themselves but Roy is an elite coach and one of the top 3 coaches in all of college basketball. Pitino is obviously a great coach but his 2 national titles and 7 final fours are on par with Roy. Boeheim is another excellent coach but he's been at Cuse for 3 decades and has one national title. And his championship was won by a future NBA superstar and scoring champ. 

 

You comparing Roy to Calipari is insulting. He's a proven cheater. He is everything that's wrong with college basketball. Anybody can win when you have all star team and that's basically what Cal is going to  have next season. I think even Duke fans would have to admit what Roy did last season was remarkable.

 

I don't get how you're taking away from Roy's greatness by saying you have to have talent to win a championship. No sh1t sherlock.

I'm a UNC fan obviously and don't care for Duke but they're going to be extremely over rated next season. I also get a chuckle about their fans yapping about some scrub transfer from Memphis. His 7 points a game last year ain't scarring NOBODY

 

Right now, they look like their going to be like UNC's team this past year except with a slightly better PG.

I think Roy's credentials speak for themselves. One of the highest winning percentages of all time. and never lost a 1st round NCAA game.
