Best Players of the 2010’s

Postby BCEagles25 on Fri Nov 20, 2020 8:28 pm

I know. It’s been a brutal fucking decade. But while there wasn’t team success, there were quality players.

The best team of this decade, I think, was the 2010 team by results. The 2018 team with Bowman, Rob, Pop and Steff should have been much better than they were.

Gimme your rankings - I didn’t do this just to ramble.

Without further ramblings... here are more ramblings. These are divvy’ed up into the modern basketball positions - guards, wings/forwards, bigs:

guards
1. Reggie Jackson
2. Ky Bowman
3. Jerome Robinson
4. Olivier Hanlan
5. Wynston Tabbs OR (haha)
5b. Jay Heath
6. Biko Paris
7. Derryck Thornton
8. Joe Rahon
9. Jordan Chatman
10. Eli Carter

This is not a bad list. If this depth presented itself below, its a different kind of decade. However, almost none of these guys were good defenders, and thats half the sport.

Wings/Forwards
1. Steffon Mitchell
2. Joe Trapani
3. Aaron Brown
4. Corey Raji
5. Jairus Hamilton (could have been higher)
6. CJ Felder (by the time he graduates, I can see him at #1)
7. AJ Turner
8. Patrick Heckmann

Steffon Mitchell might be the best defensive player in college basketball. He’s certainly BC’s best defensive player since *** ******* or Jared Dudley, take your pick. Probably even better. Corey Raji could be #3 based on talent and longevity, but Aaron Brown had a large statistical impact in his one season. CJ Felder has the highest ceiling here with the exception of Hamilton, I’m looking for a jump from him.

Bigs
1. Ryan Anderson
2. Nik Popvic
3. Dennis Clifford
4. Idrissa Diallo (ouch)
5. Will Magarity

If my #3 is your #1 here... I won’t argue. These top 3 guys are interchangeable. Clifford had high potential. But my God. The fact I had to include Idy and Magarity tells you what you already knew. THIS is where the largest talent deficit has been. You could technically classify Traps as a big if you wanted.
I like BC basketball.

God that is terrible for a decade. Take the top 10 guys and the 06 team smokes them.

By the way putting Mitchell in your mouth talking defense with Towlie is a god damn travesty.

Also Rakim Sanders is better than all but about 4 guys on your list. And that is sad.

Hah I actually forgot he did technically play for BC in the 2010’s so he could be on here. I didn’t really count the latter half of the 09-10 team, I guess I consider that 2009. What that also means is that Evan Ravenel and Josh Southern would be in the top 5 bigs of the 2010’s. Why did I make this list

Do people think Mitchell is good at basketball still? I feel like the last 3 years should’ve dispelled that. Offense is still part of basketball last I checked.

He's not even that good at defense. Certainly not good enough to pretend he is the Marcus Smart of NCAA

Where’s Eddie Odio?

Also, KC Caudill would be the best big on the team this yeah.

I see we're playing the "attack the best player on the team for no reason" game


In addition to Odio, the big man list is missing Jeffers, Hawkins, Tava, Van Nest, Cain Carney, Reyes, Kraljevic, and big KC Caudill (and technically Southern and Dunn if you're going to include Paris and Raji)

Some wings like Owens and Jackson and Rubin are missing as well, and some guards who wouldn't be in the top 10 so that is excusable (fan favorite Dmitri Batten)

Heckmann should be wing #3!

I definitely don't know that but thanks. Mitchell is a really nice 6th man, not sure why you are bashing him.
