It would be a vulgar display of his power.
I did not make this headline up
It would be a vulgar display of his power.
None. He'll be too busy winning all the 4 point contests, which they'll create to counteract Nik's shooting dominance.
Since Nik is a freshman in college, it's pretty hard to answer this type of question.
And obligatory GLEN!!! The 1995 winner.
ALL OF THE 3 POINT CONTESTS!!!!11!!!!
you have to be in the NBA first, and he is at least 2 years away from that, so this question is kinda stupid.
They should let a couple amateurs compete every year like they do in golf; it would be a nice addition to the 3 point contest
This is actually a sort of cool idea. It would be interesting to see a year in advance what someone like Burke could do against current NBA talent. It could help NBA teams better evaluate early first round draft picks too, but obviously it's not likely to happen.
only if the NCAA can take in cash from it then not give any to the players.
Who cares. He is a freshman in college right now.
That right, we're talking a minimum eight-peat
I will say 12, but not in a row.
I agree. In fact none of them will be in a row.
Casey Jacobsen win?
Cart before the horse, much?
Same number as Jon Diebler.
Will he put them on the same mantle next to Ron Powlus' Heismans? Come on now. The kid is a freshman.
Has there ever been a perfect score in the three point competition? Stauskas could do that.
The hurricane is also named Stauskas.
Good thing we have a football game tomorrow..
Fuck the NBA. Keep away from my team. The NBA is like a gang of termites to college basketball. We can revisit this in 4 years when he is drafted after graduating from Michigan.
There are bigger things to worry about than what guys on this team are going to do in their post-Michigan careers. B1G plays is in 3 days.
This guy gets it. We all have to stay focused on the game this Thursday. Speaking of, I want everyone in bed by 9pm and no drinking tonight, we've got a big game to sit and watch tomorrow, its going to take everyone's best effort.
For sure. But I fear that after the first few he will get bored and migrate to the dunk contest.
Limited time + multiple shot locations + having to grab the ball off a rack + longer shot + facing guys who get paid millions to be better at shooting 3s than anyone else = ...
I think it's far fetched to say he's that good just yet and there's something about the 3 pt contest that makes even the best shooters in the world stumble. For now, I'm just happy we have a 3pt shooter like him on our team and that he's got a few years before this is even a relevant topic.
The real question is how many gold medals will he win? In hockey. Probably a ton, since (a) he's Canadian, and (b) hockey is a low scoring sport where a 3-pointer would be super valuable.
This will someday be replaced by a replica of a Nik Stauskas jumper as the NBA Logo. Sorry Jerry West
You've now placed a huge fucking jinx on Stauskas. He'll probably sprain his testicles or get arrested for running guns and women to Turkmenistan.
Turkish prison isn't as fun as it sounds.
Turkey is not the same as Turkmenistan. Turkmenistani prisons are quite lovely, actually.
Trust you? Do you have some first hand experience in a Turkish prison? Turkmeni prison?
At least I didn't say Kurdish prison, now those are fantastic!
"The Crown Royal Nik Stauskus three point contest trophy".
after I was wondering how many Heismans Shane Morris will win. I say both win at least 5
One. Then they will ban him from the contest to make it fair to the other players.
45 of 50
And by the way, the name of the hurricane is Hurrican Ditka
Hurrican Ditka loses. Hurricane Ditka wins.
I thought he was in college? And has only played 13 games?
Sheesh..where have I been?
I am honestly an extremely optimistic person, but let the kid enjoy college before jumping the gun
NO. He needs to win it this year or he's a bust.
Slow down a little there pal, let him finish his freshman year. I personally want him balling here for 4 years.
Note the spelling Gord. Having spent Boxing Day in Mississauga I alerted the locals to the exploits of their native son. They are actively seeking sites for the 3 pt contest
after his Michigan career leads to two national championships he will be called back to his home planet - his work here will be done.
