    Wesley Johnson is the "Real Deal"

    Boeheim praises Wesley while taking a small shot at some of his ex players. Love how some on this board don't think we would have been a completely different team w/ him this past year. Over 20 wins easy.

    Re: Wesley Johnson "Real Deal"

    People don't know what they are talking about when they say Wesley wouldn't have helped this team.

    Wesley was the real deal. That's part of why it hurt so much when he left us.

    Half our athleticism left with him.

    Re: Wesley Johnson is the "Real Deal"

    I think Wesley is weak minded and was influenced by others.

    I haven't seen many people say we wouldn't have been a much better team with Wes. It was plainly obvious that we needed an athletic wing player and 2nd scoring threat, and Wes would have been great in that role.

    That's one reason I've remained hopeful about McDermott. He had all the pieces... it's just that one of them left. We can debate whose fault that was until the cows come home, but we are close.

    No doubt about that. Seems a lot of kids are that way anymore. Maybe it's the whole 80's were always going to praise you stuff that was taught back then.

    Re: Wesley Johnson is the "Real Deal"

    If he is sooo good why is he not declaring for the draft right now. Also he is good and I admit that and he would have helped us a ton. Now that I said that I do want to point out that he averaged 12 points a game his freshman and Sophmore years on really bad teams so how good is he really? We will find out soon enough.

    He did play hurt for most of last year.

    12 and 7 as a true freshmen when he hadn't played organized ball in over a year. Yeah he sucked!

    That and he was hurt all of last year. How is he going to declare when he has been hurt and redshirted the last 2 seasons?

    There have been a few posters on this board the last week who have said we wouldn't have been any better with him. FCMC in particular. Just like people said we would be better without Mike Taylor

    What sucks the most about it is that a healthy Wesley Johnson this year would have been our best player. Better than Craig in my opinion. Which means Craig would be 100% coming back next year

    I'm guess we may have been a 20 win team last year if Wes Johnson was still here.

    I did not say he sucked. I said how good is he really. Let's see what happens when everyone else on the floor get's the ball more than him. When he actually has to play on a good team.
