Mike Lantry, 1972
Not sure if anyone had posted this prior - if so, feel free to remove - but it appears as if Caris Levert is getting some NBA love now? NBADraft.net has him listed as a first-round pick in the 2015 draft. I am perhaps not the largest Caris Lavert supporter but his development, offensively at least, has been amazing. That said, I'm skeptical of this projection. I'm just not sure where he would project to in the NBA given his size and skill set.
Related, Stephen Ross should just start mailing Lavall Jordan envelopes full of cash now.
I ran into LaVall Jordan at the airport in TC...he was going to see a recruit...not sure who it was...
I was back in Michigan briefly Thursday night and caught sight of a sharply dressed man in high end (not commercially available) Mich attire in the Cherry Capital Airport. I chatted him up and found it to be one of Beilein's assistant coaches on a recruiting trip. I looked it up and this was LaVall Jordan - I didn't deign to ask his name to his face.
However I did ask who he was recruiting out of Traverse but he said he couldn't say. We chatted briefly about the BB team. He was very respectful of Oakland; well spoken and well acquitted. LaVall Jordan is sharp and makes a great first impression.
I looked up recruits in and around TC but couldn't figure it. Dwaun Anderson is committed to MSU. Whoever it was played Thursday night past...now that narrows it down /s.
FYI board material.
PS - It was great to be back in Michigan - where people talk Mich sports everywhere you go.
For any of you interested in a change of pace, UMHoops' Joe Stapleton attended a meet and greet with Lavall Jordan, newly hired Michigan Basketball Assistant Coach. I like the hire and Lavall seems like a solid coach.
Favorite quote from Lavall: "I'm as excited as a kid in a candy store right now."
