This writer almost sounds like he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. This is the deepest team we’ve had in a while.

Maybe we deserve this for being woeful much of the recent past, but a good analyst should be able to discern that certain variables have improved and re-calibrate expectations.
The writer didn't mention Dixon or Keita or Figueroa as worthy newcomers, or 4* Greg Williams.
Even absent Mustapha next season (God forbid!), this roster is much improved over last year's team, post LoVett.
I agree that is 'on paper' and Chris and the Staff have to show results on the court--but this guy dismisses a clearly better team 'on paper'.
Bad analysis.

While we Johnnie lovers probably always tend to overestimate the talent coming in each year, I agree this is a poorly reasoned/ poorly informed analysis. Without Heron, we have a very solid starting five and at least two proven solid bench players and 3 other newbies who can provide some minutes off the bench; we should finish mid pack (no lower than 6) and compete for a tourney berth. With him, we should definitely be a top 4 BE team. However, our recent track record counts against us with causal outside observers which is what this guy sounds like.

I actually think this is a fair assessment. He discloses that the ranking was determined minus Heron.

Also, while we feel good about our bench, it is largely unproven. Not sure what everyone was expecting from the predictors.
