    Fitts is entering the NBA draft and specifically said "forgoing" his senior season. Cross that one of the list

    2020 NBA Draft

    Well, that's just sad that you wouldn't support one of our own as he pursues a meaningful career.

    2020 NBA Draft

    Dude, you are all over this thread and your opinions are just poor to me. Kofi does not need to develop this mysterious mentality you speak of. He came to Illinois with a little bit of a soft body and has absolutely put in the work and transformed himself into a 7 time B1G Freshman of the...

    2020 NBA Draft

    The 6 time B1G Freshman of the Week and possible National Freshman of the Year is certainly not under the radar my dude. I wholly agree that Kofi will be an absolute workout warrior with teams and could absolutely skyrocket him. I disagree that he has no chance at the lottery. All it takes is...

    Betiku to the NFL

    You all are entitled to your opinion but hate the negativity in here. I’m happy for the kid. He’s got some really impressive physical tools and teams will see that. Even if he goes undrafted, I’d almost guarantee he’ll get on practice squad and that is a darn good salary to have in your early...

    He is in that mock draft because of how he competed against the best of the best at a recent Team USA mini camp.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2019)

    Dude thank you. I consume a lot of Illinois content, whether it be here, Reddit or a a pay site but it is continuously shocking how often Illinois fans decide they should make comments about one of our future/current player’s NBA potential. And not even just comments, statements like Coleman...

    Iowa 19, Illinois 10 POSTGAME

    A lot of good things went on. Look forward to reading in depth about it from guys like Robert and the YouTube breakdown guy. Illini payers are going to see that Peters garbage, 100% targeting hit on film and not be happy. There could be some bad blood with that next year when/if we play them

    Well that's boring

    Illinois 85, The Citadel 57 POSTGAME

    Clint Capela averaged 2.7 pts and 3.0 reb per game as a rookie. Rudy Gobert averaged 2.3 pts and 3.4 reb per game as a rookie. Neither of them was close to the finished product they are now nor did they have a comparable body to Kofi at the same age. And if you don't think Kofi would be able to...

    Illinois 85, The Citadel 57 POSTGAME

    To make absolute statements like this is absolutely foolish. He's getting better every game and I'm sorry but he is not raw. He is inexperienced. That's all. He's barely fouling, he's a damn good passer, he's got multiple low post moves over each shoulder. He's obviously worked his a** off to...

    Enjoy Kofi while you can, he may only have about 30 games left with us. BBV is an incredible find, maybe my favorite player on the team. I saw someone ask if Feliz is the best rebounding guard in the country but he's not even the best on the team. DaMonte is. I trashed Ayo earlier and feel bad...

    If Adam Miller comes, I do not believe Curbelo starts right away. Whatever kind of guard you want to call Miller, he has a college ready body, can facilitate but more importantly, he can score at will and can defend bigger wing players. Curbelo still has a lot of work to do to get his body ready...

    I appreciate the effort here as I too often fight speculation but this is straight up easy to see. I’m pretty sure Indy has said as much and he’s about the best we have here. Also, if you belonged to a pay site you probably wouldn’t have spent the time making this post.
