There is a 0% chance that Mintz is a better player than Reece. C’mon man. This list is wack

What does BETTER mean? More value to his team? Better numbers? Reece is definitely top dog defensively. Scoring, not so much. Assists? Top shelf.
Mintz will put up better numbers this year. They are both the most important piece for their team.
Again, what does better mean?

The zone is going bye bye. Red is going to play mostly man.

I played with Red and Breese years ago on the Long Island Surf. Love the guy

You are not factoring in the pace at which we play. Of course Mintz will average higher ppg, as Syracuse plays at a faster pace; the numbers are not comparable. Also, Reece is a true pg, Mintz not so much. Mintz looks to score first, while Reece finds his teammates, then looks for his shot. His vision on the court is elite; Mintz, not so much. Also, can’t wait to celebrate Mintz as ACC DPOY.

So, yes, a better point guard.

Also, isn’t there some Syracuse board you can hang out in?

Easy. He’s not being disrespectful.

He’s wrong about Mintz being on Beekman’s level but he’s being diplomatic about it haha

@Ironmike57 I know you mean no harm. But you committed the cardinal sin. You could have come here talking shit about our moms and how Thomas Jefferson was a Beta and what not and not an eye would have batted. But you mentioned our one true savior; Our Messiah to the chosen times. The one who in the end will not be denied. For we all are Beekman.

I was not irritated regarding any one thing he said, and no mortal person is my Savior. The constant one-sentence jabs that are not at all thoughtful is annoying.

@Ironmike57 provide something to the conversation besides Mintz, blah blah Mintz blah blah Mintz…

It’s clear who has the Messiah complex.

Beekman shouted out mintz during the NBA combine in an interview as someone who is difficult to guard.

One thing I had to learn** as a Northeasterner who went to school and lived in Virginia for a while is that people tend to be more polite and respectful in their language. So when Reece said that, what he actually meant is that “Mintz’s game is total garbage and when we play next year, I will lock him up.” Hope that helps!

** status check on that – still haven’t learned it…

It’s not the only bar I’d use to evaluate a player, but to be a nationally elite player, I think your team does have to be better with you on the court, or there has to be a very compelling explanation for why they aren’t.

I’ve been promising myself I will do some work this morning so I am resisting the impulse to waste an hour playing with Mintz’s on-off. :joy:

And just a reminder on my general theory on on-off stats: If they support my pre-existing belief, then they are just more evidence that I am correct. If they don’t support my pre-existing belief, then they are out of context and really can’t be relied upon.

Greetings Earthlings,
I come in peace. I committed a sin? Allow me to repent. Dear Lord, I have apparently upset some of the UVA faithful. Please forgive me.

Ok, I don’t know your moms. Also, I like Reece. You guys are reading the tea leaves incorrectly.
My only comparison with Beekman and Mintz, is that Judah is a better scorer. Defensively, there is no comparison.

I do think that Syracuse could potentially have the better backcourt. Don’t know much about IMac. He can shoot. But how good is his defense? Is he like Girard, a slow white guy that is a liability on defense? Like Pedulla?

This is supposed to be fun. I have bashed no one.
Carry on.
