As things stand right now I do not see us as a FF team. To get to the FF I believe a consistant go to guy who really wants the ball in key situations & can take over games for important stretches is critical. I think our best candidates to be that guy are Dion & KJo. However, both of those players have a long ways to go to attain that stature. Scoop is closest mentally, but I think he is too limited athletically to get to that point. Hope I am wrong, but that is my take.

actually I am placing my "bet" on Triche...he will probably be our high scorer...presuming ball is passed to him when there is time on the clock

i think we are the only ones high on dion, im way far ahead out in 1st and youre a distant 2nd :cool:

Dion is high risk, high reward, but in terms of being a FF caliber takeover player he could possibly be the man if he fulfilled his 100% upside potential and kept his head straight. Two very big ifs...The poster above says Triche, but I put Brandon in the Scoop category of lacking elite athleticism plus big questions on whether or not he is suitable to be the man mentally.

Good news, Thickburger Fair plays for Syracuse. He's got a headband and everything.
