Tuesday Question - 03/02/10

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ...

Is Terrico White the best player on the Rebels' roster?

A foregone conclusion before the start of the season, many fans since have begun to doubt White's superiority, expressing their frustration at his apparent lack of aggressiveness.  White has both the tangibles and intangibles to be an Ole Miss legend - talent, build, attitude, and roots in the traditional Ole Miss hotbed of Memphis.

Terrico has, no doubt, contributed to Ole Miss wins.  However, Eniel Polynice has carried this team on his back far more often than the once-thought-draft-bound White.  And when its not Polynice forgetting that he is awkward just long enough to dribble around some fool, there has been Chris Warren taking the ice packs out of his shorts and draining three-pointers like it's some Pavlovian response to being down by 38.  

Yet, most people seem to hold fast in their belief that White has the total package and remains some wild basketball animal that just needs to be unchained.

There is no doubt that White's prettiest shots are prettier than anyone else's.  And his most acrobatic drives are moves that could only otherwise be made accidentally after they tripped over an out-of-place DeAundre Cranston, who unwittingly turned around to see what happend and deflected the ball into the goal with the back of his shoulder.  When White does things well, he does them better than anyone else on our team.  For that, reason, in answering my own intentionally vague question, I would say that, despite his infrequency, he remains the best player on our team.
