    Yeah, me too. I mean not all 5* kids are OAD's. Now, most think they are. But most are not. Seems to me this kid realizes this. Plus, hey----dude wants to win.

    I’m always amazed when I see a gif like this and I’ve never seen it before. How many gifs are there in the world? It’s like porn... it seems like there must be a hundred million different girls doing porn out there, so why am I not recognizing any of them?

    Wanting to win is such a stupid thing to say. What do you expect him to say? No doubt he would be saying the same thing had he gone to Kentucky. Also, you are full of shit if you believe he thinks going to unc gave him the best chance to win. It gave him the best chance to be the best player on the team.

    Might be. But my point was necessarily toward him. Just more in general.

    Sure it does. Obviously UNC doesn’t have a noticeably better chance to win than some other teams... they are a bit down compared to some of the well known UNC teams, the ACC is generally strong, and UNC has a tougher schedule. But in terms of being the best on the team... On some teams (like Duke) he’d run the risk of being overshadowed by other guys. On this UNC team, he is the most talented, NBA-type talent, so whenever someone talks about UNC, Little will be the first guy mentioned (as well as Maye has done, he isn’t a physical talent like Little.)

    1. North Carolina: 9 NCAA Tournaments, 7 Sweet 16’s, 6 Elite Eights, 4 Final Fours, 2 National Titles, 3 Championship Games, 6 ACC Regular Season Titles, 2 ACC Conference Tournaments, Average Seed: 2.7

    Pretty simple here for UNC as the No. 1 team. They have absolutely dominated the ACC regular season, clearly one of the best conferences in college basketball every year. Throw in the fact they have the two titles, both with teams who were No. 1 seeds. Even without the most recent title, the Tar Heels would have been the best program the last 10 years. It’s truly impressive how consistent they are.

    It’s nice that UNC has had good teams in the last ten years. Little will be there for one. For the one he is playing, there are plenty of other schools that give him at least as good a chance of winning. #UNCFacts

    UNC will be just fine. Last years team was a “bit down” and they managed to beat Duke 2/3. If a player is worried about being overshadowed he’s not concerned about winning.

    Sure they will be just fine. Never said otherwise. But I don’t think UNC has any more chance at “winning” than some other programs, so I have a hard time imagining that’s actually why he picked UNC. I’d understand it better if he said he really clicked with Roy or loved the campus or really had chemistry with the UNC guys he’d be playing with.

    Has nothing to do with this year. Cool stats and all. Definitely worth bragging about. But he picked unc after shit got hot in Arizona. I am not even sure unc was his second option. Everything he says should be taken with a grain of salt, something that works for his current status. If he wanted to win this year, he chose a school that may compete for a title if the pieces fall right, but not his best option for winning. If he is saying he chose unc over Road Island, sure.

    Nobody said it didn't give him a good shot to win. I am saying it doesn't give him the best chance to win. Not that hard to follow here.

    Not sure what you mean here... where posters?

    But again... UNC doesn’t give Little a BETTER shot at winning than any number of powerful programs. Maybe “winning” played a part, but I’d have to imagine there were other factors, given that the other programs that recruited him (I don’t know who they were, but I assume it was the usual crowd, given how talented he is?) probably win a lot too. Had nothing to do with UNC NOT giving him a shot to win; that’s not logical.

    Don't really see what the issue is with what he said, it's not like he is bashing Duke or anything. Some of you should try not taking the bait.

    It's not that what he said was a shot at anybody. Just that it wasn't that great of a quote. We are challenging the OP more than we are Little.

    Kansas, probably. Maybe even Kentucky, they have two teams he could start for. Virginia maybe. Villanova will probably be at least as good as unc at the end of the year, he would make them better. He could pile in his position at Duke?

    He made a good choice no matter what. Playing for a program like unc is a prestigious achievement for an 18 year old. I just think you are making his comments out to be daggers more than just a kid justifying his 3rd or 4th option being unc.

    You can say that about any top 5 recruit. Why did Wiggins go to KU? Bamba to Texas? Dennis Smith to NC State? Every recruit has their reasons why they chose that particular school to attend. Just because they didn't choose Duke doesn't mean they made a bad choice.

    UNC hasn’t been as good as anyone in recent years. They have a good balance between talent and upperclassmen.

    I posted the comments because it’s great to hear an attitude like that from a young guy these days. Many non-UNC fans (like myself) found them refreshing. Others are reading into them and discerning something that isn’t there.

    What does Duke have to do with anything? And there are many reasons kids go to schools. My guess is there were a number of reasons he picked UNC. I doubt “winning” was really it... far more likely to be about relationships with the coaching staff or something like that.

    Actually it didn’t. He went to unc because Zona got caught up in the scandal. As did Miami. He went to unc because of those reasons.

    Same reason Zion ended up at Duke. He was ku bound until the scandal broke. Then Nate James got in good with his momma and he chose Duke.

    If he didn’t wanna win he would chose a school like Oregon St, Pitt just to name a few. So Zion, Barrett and Reddish chose Duke because winning was secondary?

    He chose unc because of the scandal. It’s not a slight to unc. It worked out in your favor. Zion chose Duke for the same reason.

    Likely due to the OOC schedule if we’re being honest.
