Interesting comparison found on HR.

Xavier Foster: 2 GP, 10 Min, 4 pts (0-1 3pt), 1 Def Rb, 0 Ast, 0 Blk, 0 Stl
Keegan Murray: 2 GP, 36 Min, 21 pts (3-7 3pt), 3 Off Rb, 7 Def Rb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 Blks


Foster is riding the bench for one of the worst power conference teams in the nation.

Murray is contributing for a top 3 team in the country.

You want prohm playing guys long minutes when they are coming back from an injury? Best to bring them back slower and avoid reinjury.

It's funny to see posters not go on record if they think someone will be better than someone else, yet like to bump years old posts of comparing players.
LOL

You said you would take Griffin over Garza before Griffin had even played a collegiate game. Dont be bitter because you made stupid posts in the past.

Anyone that's watched these two teams with no bias would take Young over Garza.
I'd take an unproven Zion Griffin over Garza.
I've seen Garza play, he just doesn't run the floor well enough. Now, if he can develop into being a great banger in the post like Jared Homan, then he'll be ok. I haven't seen Fran's players develop enough though to even think that's possible.
I hope Francis continues to recruit bigs like Woody and Garza and Steve recruits guys like Solomon, Cam, and now Zion.
I hope you keep getting Garza type players and we keep getting more Lard type players.
