he could but Meeks is one heck of a passer and has some great hands.  I think Joel can rebound and has a better overall offensive game.

don't underestimate UK in the Randle race.  They are very much in it.  I still think UNC is in the "lead" but what does that really mean when the guy hasn't committed?  nothing.  this is still wide open.

I don't like PJ at the 4 either.  Bullock will get a few spot mins from time to time inside due to the lack of depth

Paige is absolutely the favorite to be the starting PG.  I think u are underestimating Paiges game and basketball IQ by your statements.  He may make more freshman mistakes early, but his skills on the break and in the half court as a distributor and scorer set him apart from Strickland.

I agree 110%, the Tokoto comparison is a good one. JP is a little better athlete whereas Troy is a better rebounder and has a lot of length.

I don't know about top 10 but he's def a talented player and will be much more effective if he trims down ala Joel James.

Yes I would, PJ is a more natural shooter and a much better overall basketball player than Will Graves ever was or will be.

he never got an offer from Roy, came close but he never did.  I am of the opinion he would have committed to Carolina.  Roy would never say why he didn't like him.  He's often said sometimes nothing may be wrong w/the kid but he didn't get the feeling he wanted him.

2 years, 3 months ago on UNC Basketball Recruiting: What if the Kentucky Philosophy Happened in Carolina?

Reply

 @CaptainArtic 

The John Wall situation went like this.  UNC looked at him, he's from NC and grew up a TH fan.  Roy called him during the final four and apparently met with him at some point.  UNC decided to pass after the meeting and Roy stated that Wall was not a Carolina guy.  Rumors had it that Roy did not like how Wall always had his "posse" with him.

Hey Drew, long time no talk my friend.  Is PJ playing perfect basketball now, no, is he much improved? YES.  Fact, he it taking the ball to the hoop way more than last season and isn't looking like the guy who stood around like he was Steve Kerr like he did last season.

Shut down PSU Football and it devastates the entire sports programs at the University which has a harsh trickle down effect on the kids.  The alumni would need to put up record money in order to keep things even close to normal at PSU if that happened.  I say pull all of the state funding, shut down football for a decade and let the University be a memory.

great post man I appreciate the backup.  One thing neither of us mentioned and I wish I did in the column is how much tougher defense was in the 90's.  You can't even play 1/2 the D Jordan faced, Michael would have averaged 45+ppg in today's NBA.  Back then you had to be a top notch defensive team, tough and scorers earned it.

watch how well Carmelo plays.  It stuns me how awful and selfish he is in the NBA, this guy could be unstoppable if he would just play team basketball like he does in the olympics.  Not sure what I think about this team, would like to see D. Howard and a little more size at guard but that's nit picking.
