    You may be right but Tyler drew an NBA paycheck for 7 years.

    NBA / Illini in the Pros Thread

    Hard to believe that it was the most points he had ever scored in a college or NBA game. Congrats on a wonderful performance last night.

    Texas Tech gets its third player this week, four star 6'8" Tyreek Smith who left Texas A&M after their coach was fired in March. Guess Holyfield doesnt mind that they are stacking up at his position.

    If the Blues had played the whole game like they did the third period they would probably have won.

    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Not so sure Dallas would be a ratings disaster. Dallas is the 4th largest market in the US & we just sold 60,000 tickets for the outdoor game on new years day, which the league said was the 2nd highest ticket sales at this earliest of a date in the game's history.

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I talked to Giorgi at the banquet and he is super stoked about being at Illinois- he loves the campus, the coach, his teammates, being a student,etc. I cant see him leaving for at least two more years or more.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (April 2019)

    Article in the Dallas Morning news today about Texas Tech and their theory about being the oldest team = the best team. They want junior college transfers in their program because that translates to success on the court. They will take as many as they can get. Not the right path for all teams...

    Pregame: Illinois at Purdue, Wednesday, February 27th, 7:30pm CT, BTN

    Meyers appears to be the odd man out in Portland-hasnt played in 4 games since they signed Enes kanter. Hope he gets to see some court time soon.

    Zion Williamson injured after his Nikes break during UNC game

    Always wondered about that saying. Last year Coach Sean Miller said Ayton was a "once-in-a-generation player". Would that mean Zion takes over from Ayton or because they play different positions they are both once in a generation talents at the same time? Can there "be only one", like in the...

    Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim struck and killed a pedestrian in a highway crash

    Unfortunately, negligence doesnt fall under the "wrong" category. He can be negligent if it is determined that he was following the car in front of him too closely. It can be deemed negligent if determined that he was going too fast for conditions even if driving under the posted speed limit...

    Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim struck and killed a pedestrian in a highway crash

    I don't know Jim Boeheim & I certainly didnt know the deceased but I do know it is not a question of "right or wrong", it is a question of "negligence". Without knowing all the facts it is hard for anyone to say he was or wasnt negligent. I do feel sorry for him & the family of the deceased for...

    2019 NBA Draft

    Wish his coaches agreed with you. Looks like his "improved shooting" isnt getting him more playing time. His minutes per game have dropped from last year & in 7 seasons this is his third lowest average. I like Meyers but he may need a change of scenery to another team to turn it around.

    2019 NBA Draft

    NBA coaches dont have time for "projection", they need to win now. Mo Bamba already on the trading block is a good example. #6 pick in the draft & they dont have time to develop him.

    I have seen Whitney play & dont think he is a one & done at all. I see at least 50 NBA & 15 G League games a year & I dont see him playing at either of those levels after a year of college. Why do you say "definitely"-just curious.
