Wow...I can't believe what I
Wow...I can't believe what I am hearing.  Huge difference between the SEC/ACC Conference & the Western Athletic...as far as level of competition goes.  If Paul George was so good he should've lead that team to way more wins in that weak conference.

Ok, here's the main thing

You love high potential guys. Anyone with high upside you like and you'll defend them to the end. Not a problem but I've been down this road before

Paul George wouldn't even
Paul George wouldn't even start for Tennesee.  No way he is better than Hopson.

Its not as big a dip as you

Its not as big a dip as you think. The difference usually is the level of depth, UNC has 7 or 8 guys that are good players and deserve significant minutes while Fresno State has Paul George. You cant expect 1 talented guy to win a bunch of games. When has that ever happened? Thats why in the tourny there are upsets every year. Your comparing the team George plays for to the SEC's teams, when you should compare the SEC's SG/SF's to George.

Iguodala- I am comparing, Hopson is the starting SG/SF for Tennessee.  He is better than George no doubt.

Mike...yo jumped on the

Mike...yo jumped on the Tomas dude as well. You said on that post...I saw alot of sites put him in the 1st round so i am.....jumping on that dude when you haven't seen him play.

To Be Honest...you take any dude off of a UCLA, Duke, UNC, Mississipi St any big school in a big conference and put them in a WCC school..they go nuts.

Like Jay Bilas said..." I was a ACC player of the year...you put me in the Ivy League...I would have been a 4 time Ivy League player of the year"

No you didnt

1. Fresno St. went 13-21 last season playing against cupcakes LOL
2. Huge difference between the SEC/ACC Conference & the Western Athletic...as far as level of competition goes. If Paul George was so good he should've lead that team to way more wins in that weak conference.

That would be talking about the team's conference and not talking about the players.

And what does Scotty Hopson do better than George?

Yall are starting to sound stupid now.  You telling me there isn't a big difference between the SEC & the Western Athletic hahahah

Fresno St. did play a ton of cupcakes 

 

Hopson is simply the better overall player...I could care less what the mock draft says LOL  Watch what happens this season.

You know good and well Im not saying that, Im talking about how you said your not talking about about the conference as opposed to the players that play George's position.

Scotty Hopson did nothing better than George last year, statistically or anything so how is he simply the better player?

The level of competition has

The level of competition has a ton to do with the players.

How you going to compare stats when George plays against much weaker comp than Hopson.  George also got significantly more playing time.  

All I am saying is this season will prove who is right ha.  It should be fun to see how George & Hopson play this year.

I just think a lot of people jumped on Georges bandwagon once that saw his name high in the mock draft.

Thank you. I like George and

Thank you. I like George and saw him play some games (St.Mary's and Nevada) He had 0 points against Nevada...so he has some learning to do and he has some room for improvement.

Hopson does nothing as a

Hopson does nothing as a player as good as George. The level of competition has an effect, but you cant get me to believe George couldnt have played for every single team in the SEC.But Hopson doesnt have anything skill as a player thats better than George. Plain and simple. He's just a better athlete.

Mike Beasley scored 5 pts

Mike Beasley scored 5 pts against Xavier 2 yrs back, every player has a bad game. No matter who you are. Yes, he can improve but tell me who cant in college basketball? They would be pro's if they didnt need improvement in an area.

I wonder why George wasn't
I wonder why George wasn't recruited by any of the major conferences? I'm not trying to be funny.  I'm serious, did he have bad grades or something?  I guess he could've just been simply overlooked.  He wasn't highly rated coming out of high school though from what I understand.

I read exactly what you

I read exactly what you said, and I say it again. Everybody has bad games, and every college player can improve in areas. That shouldnt lead you to say he is overhyped or not that good because he didnt have 1 good game.

Yea, but for the

Yea, but for the potential...you can pick bad games and see where he can improve.

In that game where B-Easy score 5 points, someone can say the same thing.

Plus how many sites have him in the lottery beside this one? I'm asking because I dont know...maybe this site is giving him the "prediction" mock. Where they thing he can be by the end of the season. Like Buford.
