It's a clear win imo for both St. John's and GW if he returned to the team in terms of continuity and famaliarity and personal achievement.
We wouldn't have to school anothet new player to learn CMA's sustem and Greg would likely have a more important role at SJU than elsewhere

MCNPA.....not sure if you are on Twitter, but the comment that rubbed you wrong was just one out of endless praise for our program and CMA   It's doubtful Greg's father wanted him to enter the portal.  Knowing you as an extremely positive poster, my guess is (if you followed Greg Sr. on Twitter) you would really appreciate him

Hopefully whether returning,  Houston, LSU, ISU, Miss St, and whoever else, I think it would be a mistake to drag this out too long. Staff may find someone in interim equally appealing or better.


With 4 spots open Paultz, is that really a concern?

If he's a starter like most here think he is, it's a huge concern. If a suitable replacement pops up, you take the new kid and don't look back. It would be a nice story if he returned, but in the portal era, I honestly think waiting is for suckers.



I’m not saying not to recruit another guard or to take a player who wants to commit, just that we are not dealing with only one open spot. Really not even close to that.

No I don’t follow Twitter much, you are correct but they did rub me the wrong way.  The programs he’s “looking at” also rub me the wrong way regardless  of GWill.

 For a while I thought it was great for him to come back but I’m not so sure after looking at the programs he’s shopping himself to.
.  

I am of the opinion that we should  look to fill his spot ASAP and get a roster that wants to be here.  SJU fans have been waiting for GWill to step it up and be a starter but it hasn’t happened and it’s nobody’s fault but his own.  Injuries have happened too and he’s been given plenty of Pt when he was healthy.    Bottom line though is that he got the red carpet and didn’t make enough of it.  He lost his spot to Dunn who played a lot harder and was more aggressive.  

I’m sure he’s a great kid but as a SJU fan my interest is in SJU first and we have had a lot of kids bail.   A LOT.  Getting tired of it and just want to move forward with our team the way it’s going to be, not the free agency nonsense that is going on.   Greg should make a decision fast or we grab somebody better.

Posh, Dylan, Transfer with ability, Smith and Pinzon seems ample, especially if the transfer could run some point. My overall opinion is we are approaching the time when Greg must decide if he is staying or not.

Hope he can stay healthy, otherwise might hurt more than help. Seemed he was getting minutes even when he was physically limited. I thought it was questionable.

I never understand why people think GWill lost his spot to Dunn.  In any event, I disagree with you on Greg but completely respect your perspective.

I do think CMA would have pulled the trigger if he thought he had someone as good or better than Greg.  No way he is waiting.

If you are listening to other programs, I don't think you really want to come back, except as a last resort. Greg has to do what's best for him, but that doesn't necessarily intersect with what's best for our staff and our team.

But on the off chance that he just has a very weird way of showing he wants to come back, he needs to make that decision before someone like an Alvarado enters portal and decides quickly on a return home. Because in that instance, Greg likely gets a firm handshake and a good luck in the future from the staff.

This is like being in a committed relationship with a girl and she tells you she is going to start seeing others and she calls you while she's out on a date with another guy and she tells you she's having an OK time and maybe we can get together next week.
