When TO played he had more of an impact then EN ever did. I don't remember EN making any big shots. We was a decent rebounder but TO has more talent and in my opinion was a better player last year than EN ever was at Uconn.He said "TO was much better his freshman season that Ed Nelson ever was."
You are becoming a poster I enjoy reading.Tyler was not even close to as good as Nelson was as a freshman. Nelson averaged 8.5 pts and 7 rbs and was ACC rookie of the year!!!
Nelson was a beast!
Tyler might be as good or better though.
They are different players. Nelson was more of a bruiser, while TO is sorta a finesse player who can shoot from teh outside much better.
Here we go. Another argument based on not understanding what was written.
The Question: Was TO's freshman year at UConn better than EN's year at GT.
Answer: Yes and No
Yes: Tyler got a championship ring and ED didn't in their respective freshmen years.
No: TO was a 1.5 ppg guy his freshman year at UConn. ED was a 3ppg guy at GT his freshman year.
What happens TO's next three years is unknown. But most people in this thread believe his upside will be greater than Ed's upside.
He was better than Ed last year. Ed's best days were is freshman year at GTech. Unless Tyler stops improving, he will easily surpass Ed.
Agreed? No. TO was much better his freshman season that Ed Nelson ever was.
I understood the argument was over several posts. And yes there was no question asked. I was taking your side but muddying things trying to clarify them. I new you would be able to step up to your own plate and handle things. I was being redundant.You apparently didn't understand what was written, either, because the question you got out of it was never asked (or stated) here, either. LOL. I was just being lazy and inaccurate.
What you're referring to two posts:
Here where he only says that Ed's best days were at GTech, not here. He doesn't compare the two players' freshman seasons.
And this guy who thinks TO's 1.5 ppg season is better than Ed Nelson "ever was," that is: his whole career.
This is of course ridiculous since Nelson had two seasons at GT averaging over 8 points and 6 rebounds per game.
I think TO can reach those averages eventually, but he certainly didn't do it last season. And it wasn't like we weren't looking for a big man who could.
