Fascinating, the stats on NWG versus top 100 opponents versus all others.

The 3 pt shooting, 50% in games against top 100 versus under 30% for others is breathtaking. The sample size is now large enough to plainly show that when he truly knows it's on him, when he has to be the focused leader, he can deliver better than any player in the country.

Wow.

All of this completely aligns with the concept that Goss is a transcendental player that can bring GU across the finish line.

The bigger the game, the tougher the matchup, the more Goss imposes his will. Goss is very content to let his teammates shine, but when the chips are down, he takes over the game, and becomes the best player on the court. I believe he will become superman in the post season tournaments.

Wow.

Probably gives us a glimpse into his mindset and driving reason to transfer away from UW

Wow.

Josh Hart and Dillon Brooks might have something to say about that. Maybe a couple others that I haven't seen enough of. It would be fair to say "as well as" imo, but "better than" is homerish.

Kudos to Luke Winn on that entire piece. Lots of interesting observations.

What most impresses me about his NWG stats is that even when NWG becomes uber assertive and efficient vs top opponents, his assists per game remain virtually the same (4.9 to 4.6). In short, he locks in and performs at a higher level but does not become a ball hog trying to seize the spotlight. Awesome!

Yes!Very good! I didn't realize the album in Google photos had to be marked as "Shared." I shudder to think how many photos I've attempted to post here without making sure they were set up in "Shared" albums. Live and learn ...

Maybe it is just me, but at first, ZN's images were not visible, then they were visible after Reno's comment, and now they are gone again.

Tell me it is just me :)

The first two are right, but they are still visible right now for me

I just thought you were really into the minus sign.

(I think this is the first time I can remember that a photo didn't show up. A second RenoZag- thanks for the media and photos you hunt down. Muchas gracias.)

Obviously Nigel is a superior player and more so a terrific young man.
ZN some of these groups get touchy over photo usage. Not all are "fair game" to post.
Two Summer ago, I had to pay a pretty decent fine using pix I though were open for usage.
