|2 weeks 4 days ago||wouldnt say "perfect"||
he overplayed the drive and aaron got enough separation to shoot. good job of recovery to get his hand up but levert bit too hard to his left initially.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||KCP hate||
I dont really get it unless its homerism, which I definitely at least understand. he was a monster last year, and had a season as good as, or better than, any 2 guard in America.
27.7 PER and a +24 rtg differential are elite numbers even for a mutt in the cesspool (not really but im obligated) that is athens.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||ok||
so when you say played better than any 13 seed ever had you are basing that on a win over the 12 seed in the next round. im not impressed by that and the only reason I suspect you are is that it puts a positive gloss on their win over UM.
Also, funny that you bring up Georgetown. They lost to a 15 seed last year and missed altogether this year. so where is the great accomplishment? They have none of Duke's recent successes and all (and more) of their failures. so what does that validate?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||ok I misunderstood||
I misread the post and yes duke has suffered 2 1st round losses as a top 12 overall seed. but my point remains. youre hammering Duke for 2 upsets that you have rationalized to be worse that Michigan's upset. this rationalization appears to based on the fact that Ohio beat a 12 seeded USF in the second round. You are also ignoring Duke's NC 4 years ago. its the tournament. upsets happen, and if you're using Duke's upsets as some sort of referendum on the program without taking into account its recent national championship, thats a biased assessment based on moving goalposts.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||the NBA hasnt forgotten||
I dont see him getting picked in the first round until hes actually played some more games
|3 weeks 3 days ago||lol||
how many points? 40?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||yes it would||
that would be remarkably risky for a guy whose track record was short even before the spine surgery he isnt yet recovered from.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||he has no stock right now||
no one is going to give McGary a guaranteed contract this summer.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||yes it is||
first round is guaranteed money. guaranteed money mean you will be given every chance to produce for the length of the contract. second round is not guaranteed and the team can cut the player at any time and be off the hook for money.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||so obviously Mizzou||
before I had even finished it I knew its origin point. but I like Mizzou so im ok with it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||but...||
judging duke's performance based on how their players were evaluated coming out of *high school* is fair game? do you see the inconsistency there?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||huh?||
so your assertion is that the 11-12 team wasnt actually that good? they overachieved to win the B1G but then water found its level in the tournament when they were bounced by a team that went 11-5 in the MAC? Novak and Douglass by that point were playing in their 3rd Tournament, Hardaway was in his 2nd (all as starters), and Burke got AA recognition from at least 2 media outlets including the AP. why not just be honest about it? and I dont mean the seeding mistake I made, but rather in how you are characterizing these teams. one was a B1G champion, the other was 3rs in the ACC. yet the B1G champion was a bunch of feisty overachievers that was out-overachieved by Ohio U, while the 3rd place ACC team laughably choked? not being able to assess stuff like this objectively is terrible for the board overall.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||the post you replied to||
contained the exact same error
|3 weeks 3 days ago||lol||
yes I made a mistake with the 2012 seedings, but 3 sentences later you just did the same thing with Duke. They had were party to one 2-15 upset, not two.
anyways, all that other rationalization is meaningless. ohio stayed hot for a few more games, and lehigh didnt. so what?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||dont be stupid||
you just perfectly exemplified my least favorite aspect of this board. im trying to be objective, so I must be biased against Michigan in someway? id rather the board not be a perpetual circle jerk, but instead a place where ppl can exchange honest thoughts.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||but one was a NC||
id take a couple first round upsets balanced against a title. wouldnt you?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||yeah but here and now||
its preaching to the choir and comes across as nouveau riche so to speak
|3 weeks 4 days ago||2 1st rounders||
and a 3 seed. cmon.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||why wouldnt he?||
if he could be a lottery pick in 15 months, why would he not pursue that?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||so by that logic||
did Beilein squander Douglass' and Novak's senior year when Michigan blew a 3-14 matchup?
or was it just a random upset that happens in the tournament sometimes?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||humor?||
what does your comment have to do with humor?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||you guys are nuts||
Duke's program is still the gold standard and a couple upsets in the last few years doesn't change that.
it hasnt even been 4 calendar years since their last Chip, and I dont think M's first final 4 in 20 years puts us as fans in any position to mock Duke's program considering there arent any Duke fans here for us to be poking at (which I definitely always endorse).
|3 weeks 4 days ago||squander?||
that sounds like a very emotional response
|3 weeks 4 days ago||lol wtf?||
does twitter's msg length restriction really have any impact on whether or not someone's word should be backed up with action?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||thats the problem||
at what point does someone become accountable for what he puts into the world?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||lol||
pretty sure that was a joke
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I know what u mean||
when a guy has hands on hips during live play...not a good sign
|3 weeks 5 days ago||loved his play||
his pace in that first segment winded all of UTs bigs and put Ridley down for the count
|3 weeks 5 days ago||who knew that?||
if you tell me you knew GR3 was gonna come down and make the 2 biggest shots of the season after they got to within 6, im calling major bullshit
