re: Starting 5 next year (assuming no Waters or Reid)
Taylor is best suited as a bench guy & they will need Days’ shooting

Why does everyone assume Watford is coming? I hope he does.

Wishful thinking I guess? I dunno, I assume we have an uphill battle to get him. I remember hearing he was leaning our way before the suspension.

Emmitt needs to develop a midrange game. His improvement will be a huge puzzle piece.

Smart Days and Williams all have their things to improve on. I think Smart and Days from a skillset perspective have it down, it's a matter of playing in control better for both of them (days less fouling, Smart less bad shots).

Williams just has to develop offensively more right now. Outside of a wild (but fairly effective) hook shot, dunk or put back he's got nothing NBA-wise offensively.

But also keep in mind Wade is very anti-mid range. IT's all about getting to rim and taking 3's. He does not put up much with guys taking 10-15 foot jumpers.

That's terrible.

Mays and Smart are going to start, and that's a really really good place to start the conversation. Hopefully we bring in some talent that can start in at least of the remaining positions.
If Days can get better on defense, he could start, but he was terrible on defense this year.
Emmitt is a high energy off the bench guy. If he's starting, it's b/c we aren't that good.
Graves is a walkon. Pretend the Vandy game didn't happen and let me know what about him makes him a regular player much less a starter.

re: Starting 5 next year (assuming no Waters or Reid)
you are dumb as a box of rocks.



Marshall Graves is a feel good story but he is a 100% a walk on. Please make it stop.

If Mays and Smart do return they are the only sure bet starters.

We are going to JUCO route for big body guys and possible graduate transfer. We are also zeroing in on the kid from Bama.

I can’t see Hyatt starting over Taylor or Days

Maybe. But he could and should start if we are going up against a guard-heavy lineup. His defense will be critical.

Indeed. I just hopes he can learn to not get 2 fouls in 2 seconds every game. I absolutely love his potential and I know Wade does too.

Dude was the #26 overall prospect in the country last year and would be starting for most teams. Get the frick out with that bull shite.

I think he will start by SEC play. His 3 point shot is too deadly.

It may not be Graves, but If you can put a guy who can hit close to 40% from 3 with Smart and Mays that isn’t a bad lineup. Pick up a couple decent(don’t have to be great) big guys in offseason to rotate in the lineup to match up with certain teams, and you have a team that can make some noise in the tournament.

Is Hyatt's 3 point shot that improved? It's not like he was some 3 point sniper coming in, he was like a mid 30% 3 point shooter in high school but liked to fire them up.

Because before the WW suspension he was gonna go LSU and as soon WW is reinstated he postponed his commitment and LSU has picked up the last 2 Crystal Balls it’s looking good
