Brandon — first off, I appreciate your responding to my posts and defending your positions.

Again, not disagreeing really, just saying depth is not equal to super elite talent. We crush everyone in basketball tournaments because of the elite talent, not because Harrison Barnes is a better 12th man than whoever Spain or France has.

You’re completely right about the pipeline development and all that. Article was 3000 words already so I didn’t have a chance to go down that road. But all the pipeline in the world won’t matter if the new/renewed pattern of elite stars opting out at the top moment continues. Especially because we have a whole generation of NEXT superstars that aren’t American anyway.

Thanks for the back and forth. I’d say agree to disagree but I agree with you really, just think your side isn’t seeing the whole big picture either.

Like what you read? Give Brandon Anderson a round of applause.
