Per free press, umhoops.com has it as well. Dumars is a 6'5 wing who was a 2 star recruit.
I did not make this headline up
That name rings a bell...
I wonder if Bill Cartwright has any daughters named Sally?
Where did you get that Avatar pic? LOL
There's apparently really a circus in China where they train lions (presumably fuck lions) to ride horses. When shown from other angles, the horses look less than pleased.
...a son named Hoss
That name rings a bell...
Vice President E-Business & Interactive Marketing, Newell Rubbermaid, Michigan Grad.
I think his eligibility's expired and his jump shot has the arc of a "laser" beam.
The game announcers would have a field day if that came to pass....
That was last year. He's now transferring closer to home.
With limited scholarships I have a hard time believing he is a priority for eilien.
I have a hard time believing Joe Dumars' son is hurting for the scholarship money. If he is a 2 star, most likely he wont be in the NBA, so its probably all about the degree.
The spelling would be funny if his name were Deilien. As it stands, I'm confused.
I loved calling Jaque Vaughn "Aque Vaugh" cause he's got no J.
This is Joe Dumars' son right? Interesting, but I'd prefer him not taking up a scholarship. If he's a walk-on, then wonderful.
he'd be a "preferred walk on." As someone else mentioned, not getting a free ride isn't going to cripple his family.
I went to two games that he got into during the last five minutes down here at USF. As of now, he has yet to adjust to the speed of even inferior competition. He looks pretty coordinated and has his dad's smooth shot, but can't pull the trigger fast enough yet. When he rushes his shot, it goes awry, as with most players.
He does have potential, and I think playing on the scout team and doing the JB drills could turn him into a "late bloomer," but for now he is definitely a "not ready for prime time player." If he does attend UM, I would hope for contributions as a junior or senior, but probably not until then.
Having a degree from UM, though, would be a very good plan for him. I have a feeling we will eventually be seeing him work in sports administration like his dad. Having a UM degree and a father named Joe Dumars would certainly open a lot of doors and probably ensure that the rest of his life goes quite well.
Jordan Dumars? The name would lead me to believe that this is the secret love child of Michael Jordan and Joe Dumars. I can't believe he's considering Michigan.
Word is that his game is as good as his father (s), basically a mixture.
Joe Dumars named his son Jordan in honor of MJ. Dumars and Jordan were good friends during their playing days and had some epic battles on the court.
a name with Michael Jordan, in light of the bad blood and intensity of the rivalry between the "Bad Boys" era Pistons and the upstart Chicago Bulls. I personally loved the Bad Boys Pistons teams. True, they were physically tough and inimidating, but the "Bad Boys" concept seemed like marketing spin that people took too seriously. They won games with the non-glamorous hard work of defense, the brilliance of Isiah Thomas, and the steadiness of Joe Dumars. Even then, the impression was that Joe Dumars was a classy guy who was above the bad boys image. Remember when Danny Ainge tried to pick a fight in the playoffs and Dumars walked away? This is pure speculaton, but I would imagine that Dumars named his son after Jordan out of mutual respect.
Dumars wasn't much of a fighter... but Bill Laimbeer and Rick Mahorn were two of the early practitioners of the art of F*CK. SHIT. UP.
Thanks for that. Bad Boys were fucking bad ass. I really liked the '03-'05 Pistons as well, but I identify more with the Bad Boys.
Any chance of convincing Jordan Dumars to gain 25 pounds and play defensive end?
The announcer said it wasn't a good takedown. It looked pretty good to me. :D
Has anyone at Michigan shown any interest?
I'm leaning toward Michigan also but haven't gotten any calls
