Bleacher Report ranked the best point guards in college basketball today and it’s hard to agree with the website’s assessment of the point guard position this year.
Now I know I play homer on the internet from time to time (read: all the time) but I think several college basketball minds outside of KSR will back me up on this one.
The author, C.J. Moore, has Tyler Ulis ranked ninth at the point guard position entering the season. That alone is worthy of an unpaid leave of absence for a minimum of one year, and possibly jail time.
Then Moore ranks Jamal Murray tenth on the list, which is odd because Murray won’t run any point this year, and it is still a bad spot if you’re going to consider him a PG. Learn Jamal Murray, man.
Ahead of Ulis and Murray, Moore has Villanova freshman Jalen Brunson, the fourth-ranked point guard in last year’s class (behind Isaiah Briscoe), and Frank Mason of Kansas. Those are two good guards, no doubt — but to put them over Ulis? GTFO.
I understand opinions vary, but ESPN considers Ulis the fifth best player in college basketball, regardless of position. CBS Sports ranks Jamal Murray fifth overall.
With all due respect to Jalen Brunson, Frank Mason and C.J. Moore, I’m going to disagree on this one.
