    Harris, to me, has enough size to play the 2 but not the skill set. He’s much better with the ball in his hands. I haven’t seen *enough* of Pack to really tell yet.

    I think Pack would be fine as a 2 guard. His size is not ideal there, but his offensive skill set is great for a combo guard. I’m not overly concerned about being small at the 2nd guard spot.

    Harris would pair very nicely next to a SG like battle though. Based on an admittedly small sample size (and none of it in person) I don’t really want a ball dominant off guard next to Harris. It’s kind of the same situation we have now with Thompson and Baldwin, and I’ve already beaten to death how much I don’t like how that combo plays together.

    Pack is a point guard first and foremost. I do think he is capable of playing the 2. Does his lack of size represent a defensive liability? Is that a huge concern? Does a BU offer still exist?

    Updated 2020 from 247: jumped 32 spots to 181. So underrated.

    He would light it up at Belmont.

    Staff did the wrong thing taking Harris over Pack.

    How do you know we even had 100% chance to land Pack? He's offered, he can still commit. I think Harris is going to be a great player.

    Edit: I love everyone on this board!

    I hate red but those Belmont Unis are pretty dope.

    I can't see Harris being a "great" player. He's Thompson 2.0. Solid. Now if he develops a shot, that's different.

    I know people have made this point over and over again, but Thompson is on pace to be the all-time school leader in assists. Do I wish he had an outside shot and more developed game? Yes, of course. But you don't need to be an offensive threat to be a great player. See: Draymond Green.

    The simple fact is Harris pulled the trigger first. Second guessing the staff seems to be pretty SOP. I do think Thompson is one of last year's team, lesser problems.

    It's truly embarrassing that this sort of opinion on this board doesn't even seem outlandish. In fact, its probably not even in the deep minority. Who in Christ's name knows if Pack is better than Harris? Makes really no difference. Neither are likely difference-making guards in this league, but to honestly think someone should be BANNED because he believes that choosing one player over another is a bad idea because he struggles with the EXACT SAME THING as a maddening current player is insanity. Are you really that thin-skinned?

    Personally, I wish I could ban everyone with stupid opinions. I want this board to be a utopia where everyone agrees with everything I say and vice-versa!

    To say the staff made the wrong decision by taking a guy who is ranked 50 or more spots higher, playing in way tougher competition for a nationally ranked powerhouse every year on a guy who is just as gritty and tough as Pack is just flat out a wrong take. I for one am a huge fan of Pack and want him here badly and feel like these 2 can definitely coexist together. But this take that Pack is so much better than Harris is absurd.

    That still doesn't mean anyone should be banned though...

    Never said anything for or against any bans. Just think that's a ridiculous statement that's all.
