Buried in this is a recounting at what Shaka said last night in Chicago.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

This team has the potential to be exceptional.

Yep.  Need to make hay this year in the tournament. Final four/national championship has to be the the goal.  Any thing less is selling this team short.  Don’t get this type of experience/talent coming together that often.  Have to take advantage of this year.

I know I'm going to feel the same way, but I hate pinning a year's success on something as random as the tournament. But man, I really want to win games in April.

It says Shaka was recruiting in North Carolina before the event.  Most likely Colt Langdon, 6-6 SF 2025.

Brew, I know there are many variables that can derail this season but going in I feel it could be a watershed year for the program.  Something we’ve all been waiting for since the 70s.  I am making sure I’m off for this years final four.

Maybe it is the Lions fan in me, but I cannot start a season with the assumption there will be greatness at the end.    I think this will be a very good team.   But it only takes a thumb, or a broken foot, or a locked-in Syracuse zone, or an empty refrigerator, or a horse crap officiating crew to derail even very good teams.

Assuming no injuries?   
Can Tre take Sean's minutes?
Will Shaka want to go with 4 bigger guards?  Lowery, Ross, Kolek, Jones/Stevie?

If they come in and force Shaka to play them, this will be a ridiculous team.

My gut says Amadou plays minutes like Ben last year.   

Norman and Lowery have to take minutes from TKo, Kam, Stevie, Ross, and Sean.    Tell me how.
I dont see any of the rotation players from last year minutes changing  . They are too talented and cohesive to take off the floor.

Healthy sophomores will soak up quite a bit of Omax minutes .

Freshman who hustle on defense will each get 4 minute runs . If there are injuries , freshman will get some of those minutes

Jop takes some of OMax. Stevie will need to fight

This, idk what the thumb reference is but I've been burned before by very very good teams not making it to the next step

Kolek's thumb injury.

His psyche seemed as bruised as him thumb.
One more year of seasoning should help with both.

Put tons of seasoning on a crapshoot, it’ll still be a crapshoot.

Our best hope for getting the new guys minutes is that our leaders are so dominant we rack up big leads a lot and can let them rest.

Nobody is taking Sean's minutes.  He's just way too good defensively. I expect his role to remain the exact same. 10-12 minutes of all out in your face defense.  Anything else he brings offensively is a bonus.

4 guard lineups will allow minutes to be distributed. OMax near 30 minutes are up for grabs. Jop will get the first crack from the opening tip but nothing is guaranteed after that.

Minutes? Probably not. I agree that he will end up around the same 10mpg that he had last year.

Spot on the depth chart? That will belong to Mr. Norman methinks.

Completely agree with this.  Tre has all the tools to be an All Big-East level point guard and the coaching staff seems to believe the same.

Maybe so, but Sean's role is important and it will be unchanged leaving minutes for others.

Bold Prediction: Zaide Lowery vaults ahead of Chase Ross in the NBA Convo. Chase will still get NBA talk, but Zaide will be the talk of this roster.

Less bold prediction, maybe some day Lowery will get NBA talk but never at the expense of Chase "buy stock immediately" Ross

What a great problem to have.

Fanta's quote of Shaka on Jop has me VERY high on the season from a "he's solidified his starting role and the shot looks great" perspective.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.
