    Boy, Chris Collins looked to be an up and comer a couple years ago. But now he's just become your average dead branch on the Coach K tree. Losing at home to Rutgers is a bad look. Auburn had been as high as 8 in the polls. It would be sweet to see them tank.

    Interesting you mention Okafor. Some people thought Alexander was better than him. He literally was making preseason all american teams before he flopped in actual play.

    I more or less agree. But many of us long in the tooth temper our expectations.

    2019 NBA Draft

    I only know the chatter but in a way he supports leaving. After four years most scouts are going to know your abilities and potential. My guess is that Leron understood that his pro potential wasn't going to change much by staying. But for all these situations there can be lits at play we...

    Giorgi will be great next year. Predictions about the others are likely to be as accurate as the predictions for Giorgi this year. The good news is when you've got a lot of quantity your odds of hitting it with one are higher.

    2019 NBA Draft

    So at the end of this contract, he'll have earned $50 million but you think he should have stayed another year and he "might" have done better? Like Jared Sullinger? Many people actually think Frankie might have gone higher if he had gone a year earlier. Meyers' choice was unquestionably the...

    2019 NBA Draft

    Well, it seems like everyone agrees that more practice would make a player better. So yes, regular practices are limited in the NBA but players who want to improve are going to be able to get into the gym on their own and work on their game. They literally have only one job and that is to get...

    2019 NBA Draft

    If only you had been there to advise the GM who drafted Noel. There is no magic formula to figure out who is going to make it or not. Plenty of guys come out early, start slow, and then develop into excellent players. Plenty of guys come out with lots of expectations and fizzle. It's not...

    This is what I was thinking as well. He needs some time distance. I'm sure other top programs would love to steal him as an assistant. Hopefully he's got more of the idea of staying with what he's building here.

    Actually, I believe Underwood probably was mostly responsible for last year's OOC schedule too. we don't have next year's games down yet, for example.

    Well some would feel confident. But that doesn't change the fact that Derrick rose didn't come here.

    2019 NBA Draft

    I just started poking around. Allen Crabbe was drafted in 2013. First pick in second round. Development league to start. 15 games 1st season. 51 second. 81 in third season. scored 13 a game last year. Clearly he improved over time. There's got to be many examples like that. Bottom...

    Lol Those games were a significant factor in dumping Weber.
