I could see those types of numbers show up OoC but not when conference play starts. Just not from a freshman point guard under Miller. I fully expect Miller to give Nico more leeway but at some point it will get reigned in. I could see 15/5/5 and that would be a great success at the point.

Williams is better than Randolph regardless of his first year stats. I wish he would have played a lot more point last year.  Understandable that he would sit behind Nico this year if he is of limited capacity but I would hope he would make it a really difficult position to win if he wasn’t.

Garland's stats averages went way down when he logged a game with 2 points and 0 everything else for blowing out his knee in 2 minutes.

Even then it only adds up to 19 and 3 against teams like Winthrop, Alcorn State, and Liberty. But the point is he got drafted that high even despite the knee injury and only playing 5 games. Scouts are already very high on Mannion he could potentially not play a single minute and still get the lottery. A couple of lotto guys from last years draft to compare numbers with Collin Sexton 19/3, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 14/5.

Cam Reddish averaged 13 ppg on team with 2 lottery picks. I suspect he is better than 13 ppg and he was the 10th pick on the 1st round.

And the comment about Miller's system... I am sure scouts have some sort of compensation for different systems, especially ones that so severely limit talent like Miller does.

I'll just mark down everyone here who thinks Nico is going to be a bust then. 14-15ppg would mean Nico can't shoot/score from lack of talent. Doesn't seem like many people in this thread believe Nico is a superstar.

With Arizona's incoming depth, I think 14 PPG is more than enough to land Nico in the NBA lottery.

Here is a VERY preliminary projection of what our roster could produce if we averaged 80 PPG (note that I was lazy & didn't use decimals):

Mannion - 14 PPG
Williams - 7 PPG
Hazzard - 6 PPG
Green - 13 PPG
Smith - 6 PPG
Doutrive - 2 PPG
Gettings - 6 PPG
Lee - 8 PPG
Nnaji - 6 PPG
Koloko - 2 PPG
Jeter - 10 PPG

This projection would assume that all of our returning players' average PPG decrease from last season.  There's a lot of love to go around & I couldn't envision anybody on this roster putting up 18+ points...but I'd be ecstatic if they did!

BTW, this is the type of depth that wins National Championships.  I bet everybody on this site would have a different idea of how the points would be distributed...which means that this team will be scary.  See ya in Hotlanta.

BWill's latest tweet is 2 pair of eyes. It is emoji day, so I think he's just trolling everyone with this tweet.

After posting the tweet with the 2 pair of eyes Williams posted a pic on IG of him driving to the basket in a game against HBU last season with no caption or description.
