Blash is a good coach, just not an NHL one now. Everywhere he has gone he has won. Western, USHL, AHL. It could very well be that Holland is interfering with how Blash wants to coach, or that he simply wasn't ready for the NHL level. He would be a very good hire.

He does have a slight point on Burke's draft spot. People forget that Burke's draft year was a very down year in the NBA Draft. Burke may not have been drafted in the lottery range in an average-deep year.
|2 days 14 hours ago||It will be interesting to revisit this in a few years||
One could make the argument that Burke was better at creating his own shot because defenses had to account for Burke, Hardaway, Stauskas, GR3, all NBA players, on the wing, giving him more flexability to operate. Walton hasn't had that kind of talent until the recent emergence of Wagner and Wilson, which also coincides with Walton's recent Burke-like play.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Usually the guys that fall||
Usually the guys that fall that far but have NBA success only dropped in the draft because they are unusual outliers. For example, conventional wisdom dictates that five foot nothing guards will struggle. Thomas was the rare outlier to that rule becasue the kid could flat out ball. Lin wasn't drafted because he was an Asian kid from an Ivy League school, neither of those two are also compatible with conventional NBA wisdom but he had success because he could flat out ball. I guess Walton's outlier might be that he waited to blow up until his last few games, but outside of that, Walton doesn't really have any outlier traits that would cause NBA scouts to overlook their talent. But point being, he'll make it in the NBA if he can ball, regardless of where he was picked/not picked.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Not many||
The ones that I can think of that did make it out include Jeremy Lin, Chris Anderson, Rafer Alston, Gerald Green, Danny Green. So I guess it is not impossible, but it is very hard to both make it out and stay in the league for a while. Even if you are the lucky few, you probably won't be a star. Honestly your best bet is to go to Europe, get some ok-decent money.

I think the NCAA minimum is 16 core classes now.

You are focusing on how he was admitted without ever reading a book. What you should be asking is how he was able to graduate from high school without reading a book. This happens because people will manipulate the system to make sure guys are elgible. In poorer communities, sports are seen as one of the few ways to advance yourself in life. Because of this, K-12 teachers don't want to be the one that kills a kids athletic career and as a result they pass kids along through the system. This sets a culture where these young athletes see underpreparred students getting into schools just on sports, which give them a perception that school isn't that important.

Like when has the NBA ever cared about defense? Lorenzo Ball is going to be a top two pick and he doesn't even attempt to play defense.

But it did show you how you beat Gonzaga. Once the Zags get a big lead, they coast. It hasn't hurt them because most teams roll over a play dead, but Northwestern came out in the second half playing balls to the wall, and got hot which got Gonzaga off guard. Gonzaga hasn't seen huge momentum shifts like that. But outside of poor free throw shooting, Gonzaga can fix the issues they had from this game pretty quickly.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Collins should get some blame||
The call was super BS, but you can't run onto the court like that if you are a coach. That is an instant and easy T. BS calls happen in a lot of games.
|5 days 11 hours ago||For those who coach||
For those who coach basketball, you got to use this game as a teaching lesson on how to make comebacks. Gonzaga was dominating Northwestern. But Zaga took their foot off the gas peddle while Northwestern played harder. Gonzaga missed some free throws and Northwestern got hot and before you knew it, Gonzaga looked shell shocked which resulted in some poor turnovers and bad shots

You didn't hear this from me, but they are also working on a bid for a final four sometime between 2023 to 2025.
