Jesus, you sound like my wife. She says that about me all the time, and I have fvcking clue what she’s talking about.
Then just tell me I sound like a dick. That I can understand. This cryptic bullshit, “it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it,” doesn’t work for me.
Oh for sure, it’s also woman code for “I don’t like what you said, so I’m going to get mad anyway”, but that’s a different story.
At the end of the day, your wife didn’t average 2 PPG in college, run a MAC team into the ground, and then resurface, acting like God’s gift to college basketball, so she’s got that going for her.
I think it's neck and neck. Wendell Carter is going to go down as the most underrated player I've watched, because of Bagley.One thing is clear to me - Wendell Carter is a better overall player than Bagley.

He's incredible. And does so without requiring the ball, which really compliments Allen.
If your other big man had the talent to put Carter in the shadows, then your other big man is probably better.
Ehhh... Just because the casual fan and the media focus on something doesn't mean it is necessarily true.
Don't get me wrong... Bagley is amazing, Jah was incredible... and I know this sounds a bit counterintuitive... but in terms of all around game... defense, passing, post game, outside shooting... I'm not convinced we've had one better as a freshman than Wendell.
Carter is custom built for Roy’s system.I watch quite a bit. I watch a ton of basketball. Not what you'd probably consider a casual fan. I'm not talking about in the media, or on fan forums. On the court, Marvin Bagley's talent is superior to Carter's. It's apparent. Post game is definitely in favor of Bagley. Carter appears to be a superior defender.
One thing worth noting: Duke's offensive rebounding has gotten much, much worse overall without Bagley. He makes an absurd difference there, and it can be the difference in teams being really good, and elite. North Carolina rode that particular ability to a national championship. I'm inclined to believe that Duke just hasn't found the best way to use Bagley (and especially run Bagley and Carter together).
K is just out of his element when it comes to playing like that. Bagley gets injured, and he's able to play the way he likes to play again, so Duke looks different. The loss of Bagley definitely hurts at some capacity, it's just a matter of running into a particular team that exploits that void that Bagley's absence created.
There is a decent balance there when both are in. I do get what you are saying though and believe you definitely make a good point. I’d even throw Bolden in there as well. He has shown life after returning from his knee injury. Depending on the matchup I feel K does a good job mixing it up. It just happens that Duke is playing it’s best ball with Allen and Trent shooting more. Tonight aside...could have built a brick mansion tonight from 3.I gotta agree with you on that but when they're both in there it seems like Duke shoots more 3's. With 2 horses like that your first option should be getting the ball inside.
