After all, you do have UK and Duke playing on Tuesday night, so it is time.

Any predictions out there?

IU faithful seem to think the Hoosiers are going to be pretty good. Langford has a lot of hype around him, guy was named pre-season all-Big 10 by the sportswriters and he hasn't played a game yet.

With grown man / Stanford grad transfer / two-time first-team all-Pac12 player Reid Travis joining a few returning sophomores and a gang of talented freshman on the roster, Kentucky looks like a cross between its 2012 and 2015 teams and will win its 9th national championship next April.

I hear some tall guy named bol bol is supposed to be playing for one of the local teams. Sounds interesting.

Please cast Zion in the Space Jam remake. He is an alien.

i still wonder about zion size wise for the NBA but his athleticism and playmaking skill are reminiscent of ben simmons, but he's far more polished of a player

yeah I was thinkin LJ for a comparison too. Partly cause Zion just gives off 90s vibes, maybe it's just the haircut.

what if he dropped like 50 lbs would he be able to dunk from the 3 point line or...

ha. He carries his weight so well, reminds me of LeBron in that regard. Looks so light on his feet.

I've never seen anything like that playing pickup, but def have been on receiving end of guys using the pretext of a basketball game to get away with assault.

Unless Tenaglia was race-baiting Platt, I can't imagine what else would come close to justifying that hit.

sure, they possess the raw ability -- they can jump over the backboard and make every shot. but are they willing to be molded, by careful application of polish discipline, into champions?

i still wonder about zion size wise for the NBA but his athleticism and playmaking skill are reminiscent of ben simmons, but he's far more polished of a player

― J0rdan S., Wednesday, November 7, 2018 11:54 AM (one week ago)

yeah simmons is his best modern comp but style wise and even moreso attitude wise he's got a lot of barkley in him. insane

he's now 32-for-39 from the field in three games ffs

lol this whole thread so far and not a mention yet of Duke's best player, R.J. Barrett

granted, Zion is much better than i realized. it's insane that if he were in the NBA today, he'd be the second heaviest-listed player (behind Boban) at 6'7".

(my two posts at top of thread didn't age well.)

RJ really shit the bed on the last three Duke possessions last night.

Jeff, Thursday, 22 November 2018 18:16 (three weeks ago) Permalink

will be cool if the top three players in the draft are all from duke, cool as in a scifi futuristic dystopia

lag∞n, Thursday, 22 November 2018 20:56 (three weeks ago) Permalink

It will definitely be cool if they squander the talent in March

true ^

also true, re: RJ shitting the bed ^^^

idk, i could be wrong, maybe Zion's better. but RJ looks smoothly unstoppable most of the time. (except not at the end of the Gonzaga game.)

alpine static, Friday, 23 November 2018 19:56 (two weeks ago) Permalink

small sample size, but 41% shooting on 21 shots a game on an insanely stacked team is not great. idk, i haven't watched enough to have a real opinion on his game.
