Greg Williams is a career 5.6 points per game scorer. 

And don't give me he did not get enough run the last 3 years. Great players force coaches hands and create their opportunities. 



If you think giving Greg’s career ppg is an accurate representation of the type of player we just lost than that explains your stance. But it’s no where close to accurate.

Agree to disagree. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. I believe that Smith and the 2 other guards we bring in this offseason will all give us more than Williams has to date.

And again after 3 years, a great player (all league players) would have already shown to be such.

He is a good person and nice player, but his game has a lot of flaws in my opinion.

Other than Creighton game last year at Carnesecca, refresh me on what games the last 3 years you said wow, Greg Williams carried us to victory and was the difference. I cant recall many, but then again, I must be missing something.

I love Dunn's tenacity, but he was a mid-major talent and Williams could not outplay him. Thats the facts

Sir Dom would have just been shown the door after his junior year

And those “mid-major” talents were part of a backcourt that was amongst the upper half in the big East. When you do that you’re not really mid-major talent. You’re quality BE talent.

Dunn would have been a good role player on a very good team. Which we were not. He should not have had to be a 30MPG player at this level. Same may well hold true for Smith: very good mid major player who is asked to possibly do more then his skills sets allow. Certainly not banking on him to be superior to either Dunn or GWill.

Ouch......this one hurts. Greg was, by far, my favorite current Johnny and was really looking forward to his senior year.

Class act, intelligent player, solid defender, team leader and one of the most accurate 3 point shooters in the Big East.  I believe, if healthy, Greg was going to explode.

Can't blame CMA for the exodus when over 1,000 kids are in the portal.  It's a unique year and we're not the only team suffering this outcome.   However, I do agree that we have to figure out how to keep this type of player.  When you're not getting the top tier recruits, you have to benefit from upperclassmen.

Best of luck, Greg.
