    Rui, though it will be close between him and the others. Our attack will be balanced and lethal.

    Fun summer poll but shouldn’t Perkins be an option too?
    “I don’t expect us to be perfect anytime soon,” guard Silas Melson said, “but one thing I do expect is trying to get better every day and playing tougher, harder and more physical than the opponent.”

    Between missing some time early due to shoulder surgery and then being the primary distributor, I don't think there's a chance that Perkins will lead the time in points per game, even if he is a team leader in a general sense of the word.

    That’s how I see it.

    But upon further reflection, Norvell does like to shoot the basketball. But then again, Rui shoots like 60 percent.

    Top 3 prediction:
    Rui
    Norvell
    Clarke

    I voted Other .... as it would not surprise me if it were Perkins. Seniors often get the green light on Few's teams and a healed up shoulder might be the clincher. I do think we'll see a Rui and/or Tillie scorefest though. And Norvell is no slouch.

    I wonder what the number of 100 points or more games the Zags have scored in a season? 18-19 could break that.

    Norvell. He’s going to have a big leap.

    I think that Zach will really show his swag this year. But will not be suprised if Rui takes over more than a couple games. Hope JP recovers well. The surgery and the phyiscal therapy and recovery time is a slow and painful process especially for the aged Zag fan.

    The only player that I think will definitely have a sharp increase is Rui. He will be starting and will get more minutes and will ostensibly take more shots.
    Clarke will likely get WIlliams minutes and shots.
    Tilile will likely have similar numbers from last year as I dont see his role drastically changing.
    Norvell played a lot last year and pretty much had a green light. I cant see him shooting more than he did last year
    Josh, with shoulder 100%, will get more shots up, so I could see him scoring a bit more, but his role as floor general will limit that to an extent

    Not sure if he'll be the highest scorer, yet can guarantee Norvell will take the most shots next season.

    Rui will score 15 ppg without breaking a sweat, while Norvell will shoot 15 shots per game.

    I will guess Norvell.

    Clarke is terrific player, bouncy, active, nose for the ball, put back specialist, offensive rebounds, transition, but not really a go-to "scorer".

    Nearly 70% of his points at SJSU came off his teammates' misses, transition buckets, or offensive put backs. He does the dirty work, finds seams, gets oops, put back slams, cleans up, etc, yet after watching a lot of actual games (not just highlight reels), Brandon isn't a true one-on-one type of player. Not even for San Jose St, although incredibly creative, smart, and "slippery" in the paint. Its important for guards to find him, and be patient. He will create openings around less agile bigs.

    Not really a #1 option, iso type of post player. Don't get me wrong, he's likely our MVP next season, much needed, glue guy, toughness, but more like 3rd or 4th highest scorer due to his playing style. An active, lunch pail, clean up guy, who can make things happen all around the court. More Draymond Green, than Kevin Durant, etc.

    On Katz podcast Few reiterated how much Rui defers out of respect for the elders and all that on not being the first option. He's obviously got it in him but you are talking about a lifetime of cultural customs to basically suppress on the court for him. Makes me like him even more, but I dont think we will see him go off for wiltjer or ammo numbers. Norvell on the other hand might get there just due to wanting it and not being afraid to let it fly. Thats not always the best approach but hard to deny that the kid has the killer instinct mindset weve been lacking for a while.

    Rui.

    Norvell is too hot & cold to be consistent from game to game.

    Last year the order of scoring was this: J3, Tille, Zach, Josh, Rui, Silas, Corey, Jacob
    This year I predict the order to be: Zach, Rui, Brandon, Killian, Josh, Joel, Corey, Jacob, Filip, new guard

    Last year Zach had a slightly better FG% than Josh because Zach takes it stronger to the hoop and scores inside more. With more experience and more minutes in the coming season, I think Zach will step up his scoring compared to last year, but not by a lot due to the scoring options at all positions. Killian will play slightly more minutes and be better so he will improve slightly in all scoring categories compared to last year. Rui will make the biggest jump due to more minutes, more experience, and improvement. Rui will shoot a LOT of free throws and score at will against many opponents. I think Brandon will compare well to J3 in all categories (hopefully be better at free throws and 3pt shots than J3) but maybe score a little less than J3 due to increased # of touches for Tillie and Rui. Corey should see about the same minutes and stats since Joel (and/or new guard X) will be in the mix at the 1 and 2 positions. Jacob and Filip will be competing hard with each other and other players to earn minutes at the 4 and 5. I'm hoping we score a couple more points per game compared to last year, but with the harder OOC schedule, that probably won't happen.

    Was between Rui and Norvell. Went with Rui.

    But now I'm wondering if Norvell might log more minutes due to foul situation - hopefully Rui can limit fouls (especially offensive) and stay on the court.

    Either way, zags should not have trouble scoring most nights.

    The fun part about this thread is that there is so much talent on this team that it could even be Kispert. Not a bad problem to have. If I have to pick one, I'm going to go with Norvell

    Love how much people are underestimating Killian Tillie. If he consistently plays consistent, him and Rui will be our best players.

    I would love to see us back in the high 80's low 90's for PPG kind of like we were with our National Title run team. Dont know if we've got that type of raw firepower this year though.

    I can't believe how many people overlooked Kong Kool Aid's post. He could be hinting at a huge get and no one noticed.
