It did say 6' the whole time but I know how it is posting at work. I think Tyus Jones is one of those rare exceptions but for the most part if you are 6 foot or under, you are looking at having to prove yourself for at least two years before you have a shot at the lottery.

While that is true for most 5 stars, 6' point guards seem to be a bit of an exception. It seems the NBA tends to want them to prove a bit more than the others before considering them in the lottery. 2 and done seems to be more realistic for short people.

You can always count on a few downvotes on this site for defending Webber.
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||I live in Los Angeles which||
I live in Los Angeles which is practically in a different state than Sacremento. People here, for the most, part have zero interest in the Sacramento Kings outside of the years Webber was there. I have also lived in Philly and I would say the basketball fans there also knew Webber from the NBA rather than Michigan (although he did play there for a year not long before I lived there so that could be the explanation). I could possibly be in a bit of a "Places Webber's NBA career was most relevent" bubble but either way my point is that he would definitely still be remembered as a significant basketball figure regardless of whether he was a part of the Fab Five and i think the rings true in many places even if it doesn't in Michigan.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||Considering he only played||
Considering he only played for the Warriors for one year, I would estimate you are probably right on that point. I know nothing about you but maybe you are in a bit of a Michigan or Midwest bubble because I can garruntee if you asked basketball fans in Los Angeles who Chris Webber is, they would say the all star power forward for the Sacramento Kings.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I suppose you are right that||
I suppose you are right that he was a 20 and 10 player from the time he entered the league until the knee inury in 2003. I guess I just think of it the context of whether he will be a hall of famer or considered an all time great. 99-2003 were the only years where he was truly elite (i.e. all NBA). If he had played the way he played those years for a few more years, he would be considered without question amongst the greatest ever at his position.

Oh ok. So it was just an unreasonable leap.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||He is not writing a Fab Five||
He is not writing a Fab Five book. He is writing a Chris Webber book. His 2 years at Michigan will surely be included but writing and autobiography is not the same thing as writing a Fab Five book and not moving on.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Chris Webber is writing a||
Chris Webber is writing a "Life of Chris Webber" book, not a Fab Five book. Self important? Certainly. Can't move on from the Fab Five? That seems to be Jalen's thing. The Fab Five will obviously be a part of the book as it is a part of his story but I doubt it will be the primary focus of the book.

Can you explain your reasoning behind saying he loves Izzo being a jab at Fisher? I don't know if you are making an unreasonable leap or if I am missing something.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Honestly, I sort of agree||
Honestly, I sort of agree with Webber here. He just wants to move on from something negitive that he did over 20 years ago. A lot has happened since and he doesn't want to focus on something stupid he did that long ago. Jalen seems to want to constantly dwell on it and get sympathy or something. I think Webber could probably be a little more open and less bitter about it when it's brought up but I understand where he is coming from. I still like seeing both of them cover the NBA and love to see them still rooting for the good guys but they have both accomplished so much since the Fab Five and it just seems like Jalen can't move on.
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||This just isn't true. Webber||
This just isn't true. Webber might be the only member of the Fab Five who is actually remembered MORE for his pro career (dispite his incredibly short prime 99-03) than being a part of the Fab Five. Those Sacramento teams he was on were one of the most fun teams to watch in NBA history and possibly the best team to never make the finals. Living in L.A., I can tell you that Laker fans still talk about and get excited about the rivalry between the Webber Kings and the Shaq and Kobe Lakers. There is a lot of negative things you can say about Webber and how he has handled his relationship with Michigan but to say he wouldn't be remembered if he wasn't a part of the Fab Five is ridiculous.

I was sure Taylor would get a shot somewhere. I thought he was solid against really good recievers. Seems strange that Delonte Hollowell would get an invite but not Taylor. I wonder if there is something we are not hearing about.

I let myself get way too excited because of Jaylen Brown's balls. I'm never looking at the balls ever again.

a contender with a huge need at middle linebacker in a 3-4. What a tremendous opportunity for JMFR. Very happy for him.

Jaylen Brown has mentioned that he doesn't think one and done is the best path for him. Seems to most likely be a 2 and done.

It's hard not to think that this is just 247 saying "well shit, everyone Beilien identifies as offer worthy ends up being at least 4* talent, lets just give it to him and chances are we'll look smart"
That's what i'd do if I were them.

From the video, it certainly looks like a pre-arranged agreement between Winston and the guy behind the counter.

The attention this is going to get in the media because of Winston admitting to a violation is going to be tremendous for Michigan recruiting. It is going to highlight the fact that the Michigan coaching staff really are the best equipped coaches to prepare you for the NFL, right down to the draft inteview process.

I don't know why people down voted you for this. I too was surprised that the quotes weren't a bit more positive. The coach's quote sounded like he was tempering expectations, saying he won't be at that level for at least a couple years. It sounded from both quotes like they were saying "lower your expectations a little".
His coach is no Fred Jackson, that's for sure.

Upon reading the thread title, I thought you were going to make some asinine comment about recruits perception of UM vs. Kentucky. I think you actually might be onto something here though. Belien has made a few comments over the last year that would lead me to believe that this is definitely a contributing factor.

That was the most inaccurate statement possible. The kid has impressive skill but crappy athleticism.

As an 18 year old 6 foot tall 190lb senior in high school, I could barely dunk. As a 21 year old 6 foot tall 215lb Junior in college, I could put my elbow on the rim. You can definitely improve your athleticism through hard work in the gym and natural development from your teen years to young adulthood. I know from experience.

So then I guess that is A) LeVert B) Brown C) Williams D) Bielfedt ?
I would be ecstatic about A, B, or C and perfectly content with D. This team is going to be really good next year.
