@McNamara247 sounds like my place. tigerdroppings has been horrible. PR is great but im still looking for fans a little more level with me

MM is a wannabe who somewhere along the way developed the idea that he knows something and that he is important. He simply joined a site as a method of trying to justify his "knowledge" as he sees it.
Michael McNamara's alias is Harvey Hornet
SFP can tell you more though. He's a big proponent of d-league over college.
Yea, by going back to college he will be a better basketball player in a year from now than he would be a year from now with an NBA club..
Haha come on man, that'll stunt his growth somewhat
Maybe it's not 100% strictly basketball skill. Maybe he doesn't want the tremendous pressure of having to be the savior of a shite basketball team? Maybe by going in next year's draft lower than he would in this year's draft, he will go to a better team with some better players and learn from them, instead of possibly going to a team full of young developing players.
It was only horrible because you made it horrible in your mind. This is the guy that was complaining on twitter how he was unsuccessful at enlightening the TD dullards on Vasquez, as if this board were full of Vasquez fanboys.
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.
I think it's a lot more likely he wants to return for another year of college life than being afraid of going to a bad team.
Like improving and growing up a little more. He has great potential, but there wasn't any real production and def was not efficient as people thought he could be. Barely shot 40% and was a 29% from 3.
And that doesn't matter for shite when you're projected in the top 3.
The issue, for me, is not that college won't help. It will.
But will another option, the NBA, help even more?
At the start of the 2014-2015 season, which is more likely to produce a better Marcus Smart: a year of college or a year of the NBA?
If he doesn't fit well with the team that gets him, maybe it's college. It's not clean-cut, that's for sure.
For him, I'm guessing the NBA, so I'm wondering what force is keeping him in college that can oppose the allure of money now and better competition on a larger stage.
