Senior Greivis on this team makes them the National Title favorite, correct?
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Yea I would agree to the overall sentiment of that post. Maybe tweek some details but basically yea I agree.
All depends on what answer the OP wants. You can interpret it different ways. Does best mean MVP this season? Most talented? Longest potential pro career?
If it's MVP for this season I can't decide right now.
Great hypothetical. I would think it would make us #1. Michigan is still really good though. I think we would be clearly better than the rest of the Top Ten on paper though.
Len is the best player, but Wells is this team's undisputed leader.
So you are 13 years old?
I'm 21. I guess I forgot about Francis, his year was right when I had very first started paying attention to sports.
If you're 21, Joe Smith was also in your lifetime.
Cut the kid some slack. Do you think he has ever seen Joe Smith play in a Terp uniform?
You seem like a fun guy. Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to college basketball yet when I was 3.
I think this team could use Junior or Senior Blake more.
I would say that Len's pro potential is definitely higher than Stevie Franchise. Len could be a close to 20 point guy who makes all-defensive first teams.
My man doesn't remember how good a player Greivis was. Yeah, the dude who is currently 3rd in the NBA in assists wouldn't be a good facilitator.
Are we REALLY still having the Blake vs Greivis question?
lol at Faust being in this discussion.
Dez is the best player but there are about 5 or 6 players who are going to have 'ACC player of the week' type of games throughout the season (Dez, Alex, now Jake, Chuck, Seth, Nick and even Logan). This is a very, very good team.
Can someone break down Dez vs Len for me from the Dez side? I'm seeing Len as the better player on both sides of the ball.
I was watching the previous game on Game Tracker and near the end of the game 7 players were each 3-5 from the field and 6 players had between 8-10 points. I found that to be remarkable because typically one, two, or three break out from the pack, like today.
My man was 9 when Blake was the first ACC player with 1000 points, 800 assists, 400 rebounds and 200 steals and was 5th in NCAA history with assists.
Greivis is one of my all time favorite Terps. I think Blake's game would fit better with this team. Just my opinion. If this team didn't have a bunch of guys who can score i'd prefer GV.
Don't worry about it, kid. Gumbercules is the resident Al Bundy of this board.
Crap, you probably don't know who Al Bundy is.
Len will almost always be one of the 2 best players in any given game. Dez has had some games where he was a non factor. That's why this isn't a real question. He is consistent. That's important.

I think it's arguable. Neither is/was a complete player, but the holes in their games are/were addressable. It's hard to really gauge, though, because even a guy like Joe Smith, who seemed like he was destined to be a very good NBA player, ended up spending most of his career as a solid role player.
It doesn't really matter, though. I was just doing a little reminiscing of some of the great talents we've had come through here in the last 2 decades.
No, Canyonerrooooo fills that role. He never shuts up about that game where he had four rebounds.
I think you have to give Len the nod because of how his size can dominate both ends of the floor.
