ECQ and the Boston Riot are completely safe. From what we know, BUQ and Tufts are also fine.

Our thoughts are with our friends in Boston.

ECQ in the NBA: Jackson Maher (22)

In conjunction with our 1v1 interviews, our team decided that there was a better idea to get an accurate image of our player’s skill, strength and falir. That, of course, would be by comparing them to the legends and stars of our favorite professional sport. If you’ve never seen us play, but hear someone get called sneaky like Jason Kidd, that’s a pretty easy notion to imagine; and the YouTube support is many. 

Created by a back and forth email chain, our experts weigh in on each player’s individual discussions and cast votes— this is the result:

Griffin: Jackson has a pretty unique skill set. A very dangerous offensive threat that can change a game with his scoring. He plays his hardest at all time and wears his heart on his sleeve out there. He’s the kinda guy that will play 100% and go at his teammates until they are also going 100% percent. He’s a very established defensive player who plays far bigger than he actually is. He’s a bit of a bully (ok maybe a lot of a bully sometimes) that will go at players and piss them off and bug them out there until they make mistakes. A threat all over the field, a terrorizer on defense, and a pretty vocal leader. Jackson is Gary Payton.

Benny: I’m sort of feeling Monta Ellis the more I think about it. Now, there are a lot of common misconceptions about Ellis that I think might hinder people’s ability to get behind this comparison. People think he’s an overrated ballhog incapable of winning anything— that’s not the case. A few years ago, he nearly lead the league in PER, scores when he wants but also has the ability to facilitate his team while helping on the defensive end of things. How many teams has Ellis put up a 20 pt, 11 assist, 6 steal game this year? Believe me, it’s more than you would guess, but my fantasy team loved it. With an offensive arsenal of moves, it’s impossible to stay with Ellis. He’ll take you to the hoop. He’ll look you off and shoot a long shot. He’l frustrate you into turning the ball over. Monta Ellis is one of the most underrated players in the NBA and I think Jackson doesn’t get anywhere near enough love in the IQA community.

G: Yeah I really like Monta Ellis as a comparison. Ellis used to be one of my favorite players, and I even wore number 8 in my rec ball league in high school to rep him. Always thought he was such a straight up baller. He hits the big shots when he needs to. An underrated defender because he is pretty undersized for him position. All of these things can apply to Jackson. They are both incredible athletes that want to do it at all for their team, while also being great facilitators when necessary. Monta Ellis it is.

 

VERDICT: MONTA ELLIS
