It really has been an honor to watch Tim Hardaway Jr. play and develop as a player at Michigan these past three seasons. Like Burke, here we have another player who has left us a very long highlight reel of memories. Good luck in the NBA! 

UMHoops mentioned that John Beilein and Tim Hardaway, Jr. were available to talk about the decision individually - those videos, as well as links to their related coverage, are here (LINK).

he has always been a baller.

he improved significantly over the last year in my opinion. he may have a pretty high ceiling.

i hope he keeps working and has a great NBA career.

but okst's marcus smart decided to stay. That means 2 things:

1. Burke is now likely to be the first PG off the board, probably landing him in the top 5 pending workouts

2. Oklahoma State just became one of the best teams in the country for next season

Thanks for bringing the first wave of national notoriety to what was an up and coming program when you committed.

I loved your offensive explosions I came to expect during your freshman year.

I loved the emotional leader you started to become your sophomore year.

I loved the emotional leader you became and the overall maturity you showed in your game your junior year.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the OSU game.

Your backcourt mate left and considering the relative weakness of this year's draft compared to next, it's just as well you went this year too. I hope that, like Darius, you end up playing for your hometown team (in your case Miami alongside one of the best in the game). It really is a shame the league frowns upon college seniors, assuming their game has some fatal flaw.

We are locked and loaded like a good program should be and the next wave of talent is ready to step in and attempt to fill your shoes. Come back and finish your degree when you are ready. I'm sure you'll be welcomed back with open arms.

Happy for Tim, but sad to see him go.

Harris is officially coming back for State, ugh.  If they don;t lose Payne, they are going to be tough to beat.
