Agree 100 on Nick.
I read it the same way..................
Gotta think that Nembard could be the glue that makes this immensely talented team play well together for just one season.
Yes. I forgot about him.
That's the beauty of college basketball, Hall...it keeps us young
If AN balls out and we win our 3rd NC or even a final four, I think he's well deserving to be in the conversation for best Gator PG of all time, if not the most important Gator PG of all time. He'll go down as Mike White's most important recruit. Last year's team would've been very bad without a true PG running the show. The 2017 class all literally quit on us, the 2016 class was very underwhelming, and he just lost out on a player (Dotson) we thought would rejuvenate the program not to mention a few other in-state players. AN shifted the tide back in our direction.
Okay, besides deciding to buy another "40-0" shirt, I want to add this to the thread...
Oh, and for the other teams' fans...
We be coming for YOU!
And lastly, for us "real fans"...
Let's get this "other sport" over so we can get down to it!
He is getting better. He should be top 5 PG in Country. I can see 12pts 8 asst per game. 40% from 3 80% FT Line
Very good point to make. Just made me wonder what Chiozza would have done on a team of 04s.
Hmm. Well. A problem with this comparison is that Taurean Green as a sophomore was MUCH better than Chiozza as a sophomore. We never got to see Taurean as a senior.
My post had nothing to do with Taurean. It was what Chiozza could have done with bigs like Al, Jo, and Corey.
No doubt that Taurean had 2 great seasons at UF. Fortunately for him, he was handed the reins to a team that had a great shooter at the 2 and one of the best frontcourts in the history of college basketball. Cheese wasn’t handed the reins until his senior year in college, although he was a very good player before then, especially down the stretch in his junior year. In comparing the 2 players, I view Cheese as a lot better than Taurean as a defender, ballhandler, passer and rebounder. However, Taurean was a great free throw shooter, especially with the game on the line. Taurean also was a very good 3-point shooter and excelled in the Gators’ pick and roll offense. It’s impossible to predict how the Gators would have done in 2006 and 2007 if Cheese had been the point guard instead of Taurean. The bottom line is that Taurean was a key cog in the Gators winning 2 national titles. Cheese deserves credit for getting a fairly average team to the Final 4 a few years ago.
