    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    Great point TC. Such an amazing year and an incredible factoid. I'm a Yankee fan and they get hurt staring at the playing field.

    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    Anyone who has Iowa ranked above Illinois at this point is seriously delusional. If the season happens, we are going to run teams off the court. BANGING COOL! Congrats fellow Illini fans.

    Bruce Douglas should be in the conversation as well.

    I agree. Much better hand eye coordination, quicker with the ball. Nothing against Hamlin.

    I agree with you and if Giorgi learns to move off the ball he may get a lot of easy buckets also. Hoping Boston takes Ayo in the first round.

    Kofi Cockburn declares for NBA Draft

    If you don't see a player every day all your data ain't worth squat. Ayo is first round material now. If, as you agree, he's one of our best ever, why do most not have him being drafted in either round, data? Rajon Rondo couldn't shoot yet he led the Celtics to a title in 2008 with a very...

    Kofi Cockburn declares for NBA Draft

    It just shows that outside the BIG our guys are just not known that well. The national exposure we would have received in the tournament really would have helped Ayo. Plus, an outstanding BIG tourney couldn't hurt.

    And the haircut has left the building! Or should I say BIG. Kid fidgeted with his hair almost as much as crotch grabbing batters. :)

    Ayo Dosunmu has big decision to make about NBA

    I think he should bask in the glow of the spotlight another year. Buy an insurance policy against injury. Of course, I'm not familiar with how easily that's done nor the expense. Being 66 I have a different perspective. He's a good kid from a good family. He'll do fine in life.

    15th Anniversary of the Illini Elite Eight comeback vs. Arizona

    I was there too. Unbelievable night. I'll always remember Dee trying to pass the ball down court to Deron for a winning layup in regulation and the pass getting blocked. Would have been one of the best passes ever.

    Ayo Dosunmu has big decision to make about NBA

    I think you are spot in comparing Ayo to MJ. Yes, he's not as tall and does not have equivalent leaping ability, however, he lives for the moment and delivers. Watching him go to the hole is a joy and when he needs to get his own shot it happens. Very similar build, all arms and legs.
