I think what we can conclude from all this is that unc fans would take PJ to the Hornets over Hood and Duke fans would take Hood over PJ for the Hornets.

 

What's funny is that most UNC fans don't even like Hairston anymore because he cost us a chance to compete this year... but we recognize how much talent he has and hope the best for him.

This is 100% accurate.  

 

It makes me sick to my stomach to think about what a moron PJ is and how he's affected the team this year.  I'm not even confident that I would want the Hornets to pick him because he has been such a jackass.  I would certainly hope MJ would give him a good talking-to.  

 

But to deny that the guy has superstar potential and is projected as late first rounder (where we have a pick)?  C'mon.....

First off, are you insinuating that Hood could be a superstar? Because most superstars aren't taken between the 15-18 range.

As far as the conference talk, the ACC as a conference was much better last year than it is this year...

You can make an argument that top to bottom UVA is the most complete team in the ACC... (I'm fairly certain that hasn't been said in a while).

I'd rather compare what each player is currently doing... it's not like P.J. is playing against high schooler's; these are players that were either drafted or had solid years as college players and decided to continue playing ball in the D-Leauge.


No you were insinuating that there are all these really good players that are playing in the d league and I was pointing out that of the players you named there was only one maybe two that were taken in the 1st round.

It's fine we will see how they both fair next year when they are in the NBA. Obviously both players can score I like Hood better because he can play defense and that was an Achilles heel for PJ.

 Achilles heel for PJ.

 

Man....that's definitely a huge stretch.  PJ definitely only played D when he wanted to or had to.  A lot of the time he ended up guarding the other team's 4 because the Heels were so small.  If he was guarding other 2s they would have had a hard time getting a shot off.

Please explain to me what this has to do with who's the better player now?

What it sounds like you're saying to me is that PJ was irrelevant as a freshmen. Which means in the past three years he's improving at a more rapid pace than Hood, since you're also claiming that Hood was so awesome as a freshmen.


So is playing stupid a UNC fan thing?

You knew I was talking about your B.S. statement that Freshman aren't expected to contribute at UNC.

Come on PJ was a great scorer but defense is where his game lacked. Unc's best defensive player last year was Bullock, he could lock a guy down.

Out of the four games Hairston has played he makes up a fourth of the teams steals in those games according to DraftExpress. I know it's only four games but that is a flat out ridiculous stat. P.J. can play defense when he wants to and it's clear that he has been working on it.

I dont think you guys even know why you're arguing anymore.

 

Hood is not going to be drafted by the Hornets, mainly because we wont have a pick in the middle of the draft where he will be taken (we arent getting that Detroit pick)

 

I would love to take PJ with the Portland pick, but he may go earlier.

There's a decent chance we get that Detroit pick at number nine unless they start tanking hard,
