Also watch the videos of his help and recovery defense.  At least as good as Otule.

agreed on Oso. Quicker than Luke, for sure. Sam Hauser? Imo Sam is quicker than Ben. Henry and Theo too.

Yes.  Sam is significantly quicker than the three you mentioned.

I will grudgingly concede a healthy Sam, but not Joey.

Sam also is a significant upgrade from Gooollldbrick.

100%. I do think, however,  Gold is more consistent, more impactful, next season. If, for no other reason, good health from the get-go.

A couple of Scoopers opined that Gold is quicker than Sam was. I happen to disagree but it's not really possible for anyone to know for sure.

But I haven't seen a Scooper say that Gold is better than Sam was at Marquette. And for obvious reasons - Sam was a consistently good player who was able to parlay his elite shooting ability into an NBA career.

Maybe Sam improved his quicks after he left MU but he always had a pretty good 1st step.  Benny does as well.  It's also conceivable that that Sam rarely displayed his quickness off the dribble because of incompetent coaching/tutelage. 

Ben has a lot of talent with great size. Hopefully he can put it all together in '24-25.

Ben Gold is 6-11, 245.  He is plenty quick for his size.  He's just not freakishly fast like Oso.

Exactly.    And he has the athleticism to be projected as both a national team rugby player and an Olympic athlete prior to him growing to 6'11.    I said earlier in the year that he just needs (A) to knock an opponent on their a$$, or (B) a swift kick in the butt from the coaches.     He has all the athleticism he needs and has shown flashes of it.     Next season, he needs confidence.    He needs to know that he is the man and that no other 6'11 player can do what he does.    And then go do it night in and night out.

Exactly right.  This is why I reiterate attacking with fury.  Ben has the goods.  It's time for the young man to play with relentless force and confidence. Hopefully he gains a little muscle.
