Julius Hodge: T.J. Warren Is The Best Player In The ACC
NC State Legend, Twitter Legend, and perhaps one day TV Legend, Julius Hodge joined Mac and Jim to discuss the Marcus Smart situation, ACC hoops, his old playing days and to preview UNC v. Duke.
On Marcus Smart: If he was only called a ‘piece of crap’ he gets the awared for having the most outrageous reponse to being called ‘a piece of crap.’ I’m not buying that, at all. I agree with the suspension. You’re not supposed to put your hands on a fan, no matter they say.
On TJ Warren one day being a starter in the NBA: One day, TJ will totally be a starter. He’s the best player in the ACC right now. He’s not just an excellent player on a bad team, he’s on a good team. He’s putting up major numbers and he’s done it against everyone this year and last year.
On the crazy ending of NC State v. Miami over the weekend: As a Wolfpack fan, I’m thinking, ‘Please don’t Karl Hess us.’ For us to get that win on the road is still a big win. Any time you can get an ACC road victory you’re doing something good.
On UNC-Duke: Usually UNC plays to the level of their competition. I think it will be a good game with UNC’s size. They really beat you up on the offensive boards and with Duke’s inability to handle teams that are really big and get to the boards. It’s going to be a better game than I would like it to be.
Julius offers more insight into UNC- Duke, Duke’s tournament chances, gets caught by e-mailers trying to slip one by Mac and Jim, the ACC’s newest rivalry, Chris Paul’s cheap shot and how the hashed things out, and how Chris Paul followed up with another cheap shot.
