    For the same reason I'll eventually stop posting here again. You guys will eventually suck the fun out of it for me, and I will realize I need to step away for awhile.

    You are so F***in right on the money....shooting a basketball is not a learned skill....You can either shoot or you cant...When I was in junior high I could make 90 out of 100 free throws...which was the best in school...did I practice...HELL NO ...I just went up to the free throw line and made the shots....Naturally of course...great shooters are born not made.....

    Bolton is averaging 15 ppg while shooting 42% from the floor, 83% from the line and is a plus defender. You're clueless

    And your previous name was MikeM-but you’re too much of a douche to admit it. Let’s go back and look at all your previous brilliance

    I was only referring to what was shared in this thread about Bolton. It seems to me by the stats you are sharing is that he can score points. You see him as a legit P5 starter. Got it.

    But as you say, I am clueless, so if I agree with your take, what does that say about you. I am not here to argue. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the roster and what die hard cyclone fans like you think.

    I didn't mean to trigger you.

    4-5 top 25 teams are mid-major teams. So mid-major rosters may not be the insult you wanted it to be.

    No **** sherlock... My question to the @Artic Zone was in regards to if he thought that Griffin could improve, or if he was just a bust...

    I can see why you might jump to the conclusion that I intended this thread to be an insult. I never took the Iowa is a mid-major roster thread as an insult. it was an honest assessment by an MSU beat writer that may cyclone fans piled on hurling insults at the iowa basketball program.

    I guess those mid-major teams that are ranked in the top 25 have P5 rosters.

    trending bust... there are minutes to be had on this team and hes not capitalizing

    i know everyone loves to point to Naz Longs MPG and PPG as a freshman but Naz had the following guards/wings in front of him
    • Will Clyburn
    • Tyrus McGee
    • Korie Lucious
    • Chris Babb

    Griffin has
    • Tyrese Haliburton
    • Rasir Bolton
    • Prentiss Nixon

    This doesnt just apply to Zion, btw, this applies to Jackson and Grill also. I know Naz Long is the poster child for improvement and i LOVE naz but the roster construction of the 2012-13 team is completely different than the 2019-20

    It is amazing how many usernames that have popped up out of nowhere that remember old threads.

    It was posted that he is not consistent with his 3 point shot and would likely move to point guard next year. A better fit for him than his current role. It is hard to for me to classify a guard who can't hit 3 pointers with consistency a legitimate P5 starter.

    Again, I am not claiming to know much about cyclone basketball. I am taking an interest though.

    Was it the Murph and Andy account that did it a couple years ago? I think that's when he went away for a while.
