re: Marcus Smart returning to Okie State


Just read through the thread. I'm shocked smart is staying but with everyone bitching about one and dones it's actually nice to see a top pick come back to school.

I'm open to trading the pick If we can get a young talented starter. Yeah I know this draft class is horrible, (but not worse than any of McNamaras tweets) and the chances of us getting some young talented starter are basically none, but I also didnt think we could get okafor & ariza's contracts off the books, so I don't count Demps out just yet.

I'm tired. Long day.

My new rules.

1) NBA abolishes the current age requirement. Anyone 18 or over can come on down if a team will have them.

2) If a kid signs to a scholarship, however, he can't go to the NBA for at least two years (or three . . . but that's pushing it).

Those two rules, alone, would improve both the college game and the NBA.

Thank you for your time.

What about Eric Gordon and our draft pick for Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes? Just a thought.

Thank you!! This IMO is the perfect plan. Allows studs (Kobe lebron wiggins) to enter right away while also ending the one and done. Helps college basketball, the pros, and the prospects.

Not sure. I think EG blows up next year and makes the All Star game.


























It could happen.

I think intelligence does not enter into it.

I found it an over-reaction, but I also do not see the draft as the be-all-end-all. Others have much more faith in it.

I think most of the things he posts are over reactions. For that reason, he'll never be widely respected.

Don't think he's quite ready for the NBA despite what the mock drafts say.

Also, for gynoDbag or whatever his name was....Burke sucks on defense and that is why he doesn't make sense for the pelicans. If you are a season ticket holder and attended the chalk talks with Dell, then we can discuss your interpretation of it.

It's not debatable that he will improve because he will. Maybe not as much as he would in the NBA, but who knows what could happen with confidence and stuff like that.

Cody Zeller also should be returning this year because he was exposed this year and is not ready.

I just don't think Smart returning is a bad decision at all. Another year to improve and grow up and still keep his confidence up. NBA isn't going anywhere.
