Jesus Fucking Christ.... Just rename the kid "Doctor Larry Johnson O'Neal Malone" and get it over with.


Why the fuck do we have to keep coming up with all of these comparisons. This kid is his own person and if he resembled pretty much any of these HOF'ers he would be in Chapel Hill or Lexington right now prepping for this season. You know who he looks like - Tre Mitchell - you know, the recruit with the high motor, good stroke, high BBall IQ, volume shooter......... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

You do realize that pretty much beginning with Jackson's post every comparison was made in jest, right? Cripes the off-season here is brutal sometimes. I'm not talking about the poster - I like that guy.

I do realize that, but a lot of the other comps (including those in this thread) still drive me crazy. I mean I get it, we are all trying suppose what we are going to get out of these kids, but sheesh... they are 18 year olds who are still growing, still maturing, still changing in a lot of ways. We are dubbing them the next (fill in the blank) when all we have are fucking HS highlight reels (or maybe a few full game tapes) against kids who are almost always inferior competition.

It is mind numbing to read the expectations being thrown around here about these kids. I have not seen one freshman come in here in the last 12+ years who has remotely met the hype that preceded them in the front door (in their first year here). Yes we are all die-hard fans and we want to dream big and all of that shit; but good lord, take it down a notch.

I want Tre Mitchell to be the First Tre Mitchell, not the next coming of X.

These kids all have talent and potential and that is why MM brought them here, and hopefully he can extract it from them.



Tre I look forward to seeing what you can do here and bring here!

What makes you think my comparisons were in jest?

The fact that when combined they would make Tre the greatest, most handsome player of all time? Oh.

How about we let him be the 1st Tre Mitchell and let others be compared to him in the future. 8)

^ If I remover correctly there were no expectations for him coming in. He was an under the radar player who many thought should prep for a year.

Chaz exceeded expectations. Yes he was a transfer, but he did more than people expected.

Relax snowflake. I assume that most people on here haven't watched Tre play beyond at best a few minutes of highlights. As someone who's watched him play I was trying to provide people with another player they'd be familiar with that's somewhat similar to Tre... it's an easy way to convey what kind of player Tre might be.

I would to propose a ban on the use of the term snowflake on this board unless of course you are talking about something weather-related.
