    I love how well Nick has been playing lately, but he is not the best player on our team. Come on.

    Freddie Gillespie and Austin Wiley are nice players, just not sure that they're more important than Jared Butler and Samir Doughty.

    Not saying all of these guys need to be on the list, but here are some of the notable omissions:

    Isaiah Stewart, Washington
    Tyler Bey, Colorado
    Desmond Bane, TCU
    D̶a̶n̶i̶e̶l̶ ̶O̶t̶u̶r̶u̶,̶ ̶M̶i̶n̶n̶e̶s̶o̶t̶a̶
    Lamar Stevens, Penn State
    Zavier Simpson, Michigan
    Omer Yurtseven, Georgetown
    CJ Bryce, NC State
    John Mooney, Notre Dame
    Mason Jones, Arkansas
    Ashton Hagans, Kentucky
    Reggie Perry, Mississippi State
    Anthony Edwards, Georgia
    Jordan Ford, Saint Mary's

    Oturu was #4 on the list

    Not sure how Edwards isn't on there.

    I'm a homer, but I'd add Derek Culver from WVU to your honorable mention list too.

    The disrespect for Paul Reed continues. :mad:

    15.5/11.4 on 53.6FG%. Also 3.1 blocks and 2.0 steals.

    Is there even one player on your list who's better than Reed???

    Pathetic that Paul Reed isn't top 15 or even on the list.

    No excuse for that. He's easily better than most of the people on that list. Kamar Baldwin?? Give me a break.

    Haha you're right. Paul Reed is a heckuva player. Deserves some attention. I just came up with that list in a few minutes.

    Reed is a better individual player, but awards always favor players on top-tier teams. Baldwin is the best player on Butler, who is projected as a #1 seed. So including him has some merit.

    I've been rooting for Nick since he was freshman. There's 2 players on our team we couldn't do without, that's Nick and Aston. I have absolutely no problem with Nick on that list.

    Disagree, Maxey is our most valuable player IMO. Close between him and Ashton, but we basically have no offense outside of Tyrese in some games.

    I honestly think both okoro and doughty are both better players for auburn than Wiley. Wiley has stepped up this year though.

    Hagans and Tre Jones have been extremely similar players. Having one at 15 and the other not on the list is dumb.
    Nick Richards even being mentioned on this list after his first 2 years is wild. He went from awful bench player to legitimate all sec caliber player.

    When Maxie is on, he's great. Always plays hard,but Nick has been more consistent. Stats will prove it.
