I think we're going to have to redshirt this guy.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Response to no one||
Who are you talking about?
|2 days 11 hours ago||Kind of hope?||
I hope to God. If any if these guys catch on it would be life changing.
|3 days 14 hours ago||I'm curious now how many of these players make it to the NBA.||
That would another post though.
|4 days 54 min ago||Who its going to play defense?||
A sophomore center with no defensive credentials and air behind him? No, we need a great recruit who can play fifteen minutes a game his freshman year and challenge for a starting spot.
|4 days 13 hours ago||My home town team||
We have a huge arena and are one of the best public universities in the country but continue to fail at college athletics. Pathetic.
|4 days 13 hours ago||Stress fracture?||
That just sounds terrible. But Kansas has so much talent they still have a very good shot at the final for without him.
|4 days 22 hours ago||They beat us?||
That might be a good start.

Poster that Trey's agent sent to all the teams.

If you are a GM. If they got a great offer for Kemba they better know something about Trey.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Sorry, doesn't count||
His surgery was done a month earlier and was called a success at the time. All acl surgeries are called a success at the time. Man had a point.

please don't lump yourself in with us.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||By about ten different accounts||
That sounds like exactly what happened. The maize rage formed their own line and then announced that was the official line. How the hell is it up to them anyways?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You are delirious||
They have between one team with a winning record during the streak and that team was without its start player. They have a chance to make the playoffs but odds are against them.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Judging the NBA based on their all star game?||
I'm assuming you aren't a big fan of the NFL either?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Hawes is extremely athletic||
Are you just assuming he isn't because of his skin?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I believe Louisville made it a few years ago||
as an 8-loss team after winning the Big East.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||the rankings are misleading||
They should say for example #6 in the Midwest or something like that.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Since when did GM's care about NBA readiness?||
They mostly draft on potential.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I was going to say the same thing||
He has the combination of shooting, play-making, and driving ability to be a starter in the NBA. He kind of reminds me of Gordon Hayward after two years in college. Very similar skill sets with long limbs and that sneaky fast ability to get into the lane for layups and floaters.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Don't pay attention to which team they are projected to now||
Draftexpress is just ranking them right now and their mock almost completely aligns with their top 100 list. And yes, the Knicks owe Denver the pick this year and Toronto their pick in two years.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Bynum developed a ton||
He could barely catch the ball nonetheless execute a simple drop step in the post. within 4 years he became one of the best low post centers and passing big men in the league. Paul George was also basically a raw athlete with nice form on his jumper and has developed his skills to become one of the best players in the league. Kawhi Leonard was raw and couldn't shoot and now is an elite 3-point shooter and can pass and runt he pick-and-roll.
In summary you don't know what the hell you are talking about but go ahead and keep listening to "truismisms" that peole like Dickie V and Bilas keep telling you and believing that they are true.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Very cool article although||
It only accounts for some things. Rubio its probably the best defender at his position in the league, also the wolves were the worst threepoint during team in the league last year. So every time Rubio passed it to a teammate for a three it was judged as a bad decision. Plus his adjusted plus minus was 1.95 which is pretty good.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||What freak athleticism?||
GR3 is an average athlete by NBA shooting guard standards. He can jump high but can't quickly or explode in traffic. His first step is also merely good, not great. Maybe you haven't watched a lot of NBA lately but being able to catch a fast break alley-oop in the league is the norm. GR3's athleticism is about on par with Chandler Parsons.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||People have hated on those guys||
Because most of them are from duke, people hate duke but don't want to feel racist and hate on a black guy. So they just find the only good white guy on their team and hate on him. Is this not totally obvious?
|6 weeks 15 hours ago||That's ridiculous and by saying that you are completely||
broading the definition of rape to the point of essentially marginalizing it. That's horrible. Please don't confuse poor decisions with rape because rape is an awful thing and shoudn't be conflated with having sex with someone with poor judgement.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Draftexpress||
Has Stauskas up to number 16 in this year's first round. Madness! I don't think he has the explosive leaping ability or or strength or lateral quickness to go in the lottery but I could see him going top 20.
|10 weeks 17 hours ago||The idea the OSU doesn't have room for Smith is a joke||
They have always had room for both and if they didn't they would make room. They're not stupid, you don't turn down 4-star players from your number one pipeline.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Thank you||
It's common around here for everyone to say these kids are immature and do dumb stuff, etcetera etcetera. But If I'm a recruiter I'm going to go after somone who is wise beyond his years and has qualities like loyality and perseverance and such that are less common among 17 year olds. Immaturity doesn't make a kid bad but it also isn't bad of us to point out that's not necessarily a trait we are looking for either.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||I watched him when he played SDSU last year||
I was really interested in if he was number quality as this was in December or early January so I was eyeing him the whole time. The guy was lazy, didn't care about defense, and only rebounded if the ball fell in his lap or he could do a put back dunk. What was there to like about this guy? He also looked out of shape. He was like a less skilled worse shooting Michael Beasley.
Scouts fall in love with this SF/PF tweeners with skills but as we've seen with Beasley and Derrick Williams it's not the best idea.
