Jonny Flynn Is An Absolute Magician

Reasons Jonny Flynn is an absolute magician.

#1 - This guy correctly refers to him as the best point guard in the country. And Jonny agrees.
Davidson's Stephen Curry is the best player who'll be stationed at point guard this season, but he still is mastering the position. Flynn is the best point guard because he is light on weaknesses and committed to his team. Flynn acknowledges the talents of North Carolina's Ty Lawson, UCLA's Darren Collison, Connecticut's A.J. Price and Villanova's Corey Fisher. Flynn said each is amazing, but adds, "Hopefully I'll be the top point guard in the country."
#2 - He is openly challenging Jim Boeheim to shelve the zone D for more man-to-man.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't do that," Flynn said. "Every day I talk to him and say, 'Coach, let's play a little more man-to-man.' I love picking up a guy at 94 feet and trying to shut him down.

"It was hard last year because we didn't have much bench depth. This year, I think you'll see a lot more man-to-man defense."

#3 - He's officially speaking in the first-person now.

"Last year I had to go out there and score points to try to win games ... It really doesn't matter to me how much scoring I do. The only thing that matters is winning. Just to get back to the Syracuse glory days -- we went to the NIT two years in a row, and we can't do that any more."
#4 - We're going back to the NCAA Tournament, even if he has to murder someone and then cover up the murder so no one finds out about the murder to get there.
