📍Cali...





Honestly, I have no clue as to what you are trying to say. But if it's something bad, that second gif would be appropriate.

Like that he is coming back as one of few shreds of continuity and stability we have left. Hope he has an amazing sophomore year. 

No one really knows for certain that the new kids are actually any better (shall we review all the past similar recruiting rankings that busted?) but honestly, after last year, a wholesale change of starters with Jeter and Wiliams off the bench is what I am hoping for.

Williams is not a great PG, BB IQ is not super high, he is not individually gifted as a shooter or athlete, he's not fast, does not create his own shot much better than an average PAC12 player,  he is not explosive nor creative. He does not shoot super well. His assist to TO ratio is entirely forgettable - he does not have the true PG gene. If Williams is our future at PG, we're not going anywhere as a program. 

Williams is a good back up at Arizona and frankly appears to be at or near his ceiling. It is just not a huge loss if he were to go or needed a medical redshirt year (which, of course, would mean an early declaration for the draft, along with the other 600 guys who declare every year now and have zero chance of ever playing 1 minute in the NBA) .

This statement is sooo wildly unaccurate. Williams is as close to his cieling are you are getting positive Karma on this forum. Kid has tons of room to grow. It's like you're watching a completely different team.

The biggest loss is that we're going to be really thin at the back up pg spot. Hazzard can fill in but he's better suited at the sg. But counting on a guy with his injury history who missed 6 games and was day to day the second half of the season would not be fun either. Hopefully we can find someone to replace him if he can't play.
I wish that I could be more like Dickie V, but I'm just not willing to cut off half my dick and tape it to my forehead - ichi

Can't teach or magically create talent.

Plain and simple - Wiliams is the next Jordan Mayes, or, in four years MAYBE Kadeem Allen, but he is not the next Mike Bibby or Damon Stoudamire. We need final four talent. Williams is not it. No one on the entire team (last year) is...Jeter might be a good back up.

Williams was the second or third best player on the 8th best team in the worst power five conference in history.

Dude you are just flat our wrong. It's fine to call him injury prone but to call him untalented is just not correct. When healthy he was easily our best player last year. No one on this site agrees with your assumption you just spew nonsense.

Nico will hold down the PG spot for 30+ minutes per game this year whether anyone likes it or not (unless foul trouble). I don't care what system Sean Miller has run in the past. He will ride his one and done ferraris into the ground this year and make a big national statement. Nico is a superstar and could start at PG today in the NBA.

Brandon Williams - Get better however and whenever you want.

How many points, rebounds, and assists do you expect Nico to average
