    I'm not sure how credible this website is but they have Georges at #10 on their list of Best Players in College Basketball for '14-'15.

    You answered your own question. They are the most credible. (at least until someone else ranks him higher)

    I think the 'not a great athlete' references to Georges is getting a little worn. You don't become a D-1 basketball AA candidate without being a great athlete. We're not talking golf here.

    I stopped reading when I saw that they ranked Abdul Malik-Abu in the top 50.

    It's a talking point, used to describe him as a player. These writers/commentators have to say something about each player. Just quoting stats would get old really fast.

    When you're talking about Wiggins, you're going to talk about his off the charts measurables and athletic ability. When you're talking about Georges, they're going to say he's not terribly athletic or above the rim player, which is ALL TRUE.

    They're not comparing him to golfers or the general public. It goes without saying that a below average D1 basketball player is a better athlete than most, but relative to the top 50 players in college basketball, Georges is one of the worst athletes.

    Not a knock on him, in fact it is actually a compliment, that he gets the production that players far more athletic than him can only dream of.

    I agree with this. These "not athletic" remarks about Niang aren't blatant remarks calling him Tubby McPudgeface. The writers and all commentators that make these kinds of remarks use it because they're saying that he's as good as players that are athletic freaks, which Niang isn't. They're simply stating the fact that while he's not in tip-top shape like Aaron Agnew was, he still finds ways to beat the best players in the game with his skillset, which nobody can deny.

    Niang and Morris on the pick and roll/pop. Or Niang and Jones? Niang and Custer?

    I have that tingling sensation down my leg like Chris Matthews has for Obama just thinking about it.
