Bullshit foul call
Keith Van Horn/Reaf LeFrentz?
Imagine Holmgren guarding Embiid and Joker
why would he? He’s not a center
Gonzaga are such overrated playing against weak conference.
And so ends the collegiate career of Chet Holmgren
Most years, Gonzaga is a vetran team with a lot of returning players, who make their resume facing big names with less chemistry early in the season. Then, they pad their record in a lesser conference, but while they're getting used to weaker competition, those inexperienced teams start coming together in the back half of conference play. The perfect receipe for the Zags to not live up to their tournament seeding ranking.
He's going to get beat up in the pros till he gets stronger. He'll be fine just going to take 2-3 years.
Not even in the same league.
That’s too bad. Gonzaga got screwed on some calls though.
Why do ppl continually believe in Gonzaga? They blow it every single year for the last like 20 years. They play in easy ass conference and get sweated like their Duke or something.
That’s why I question a top recruits competitiveness like Chet choosing Gonzaga to play in that easy conference…
How is it a flex?
He said Duren hurt his draft stock with that performance. I said the scouts disagreed. And they aren’t anonymous. They’re the ESPN guys. And I said it because it’s their job. If I said, “oh I disagree.” he would just say “oh that’s your opinion”. So I used someone else’s opinion, who actually gets paid for their job, to do the talking. Not sure how that’s a flex. In fact, I didn’t even share my opinion because I think it really depends on draft order. Was merely stating that what he said wasn’t popular opinion.
Would’ve liked to see Gonzaga advance. The refs really made some questionable calls. Hard to get a feel for Chet after that performance.
Gonzaga has a great program and have held their own against much bigger schools. Could you imagine UP having that good of a program for the last 12 years or so?
He's skilled but will need to strengthen up and he will, may take a few years.
I’ll also add: You said Sochan is going to be a late first or early second rounder and said you’re going to stick to that opinion. I said the scouts disagree. Not sure how that’s a flex either. Just stating reality is a little bit different. We will see if Sochan is drafted in the late first / early 2nd or not.
I think I am leaning towards Paolo or Chet, because I think he will beef up enough.
Paolo I think has the most superstar potential of the commonly accepted top 3.
Gonzaga has only outperformed their seed two times in 11 years.
Separate names with a comma.
