re: Jordan Mickey's Draft Stock - Tom Bronco
[quote]Good for Mickey. I think the injury effecting his play at the end of the year colored a lot of fans (me included) opinion that he made a mistake leaving early. [/quote]The NBA season is an extremely long grind. I always thought Mickey's main problem was that he was just not strong enough to b...

re: So can it be said at this point that Kwon made a mistake by leaving? - Tom Bronco
[quote]Of course not. Attending college at LSU while on a football scholarship is one of the toughest things to do in life. You are forced to lift weights, run a lot, occasionally go to class, and pass with a C average. How can a young man possibly be expected to do that when only given free housing...

re: No posts on LSU basketball hiring Al Pinkins? - Tom Bronco
[quote]It's baseball season. Nothing else matters during baseball season. I hate to say it, but I'm basically speaking for everyone else. I think it's a good hire, though.[/quote]If you don't want to think about anything but baseball then I don't remember anyone stopping you. Get off the basketbal...

re: Who would be your choice for the last bball spot? - Tom Bronco
Dickerson is another guy that really isn't interested in college(from a couple of interviews I saw) except from the standpoint of honing his game for the NBA. Is he good enough to go one and done? If so I vote no. We need some stability in the program. I watched clips of Simmons for 30 minutes y...

re: I feel bad for Collins - Tom Bronco
It's not the end of his career if he doesn't get drafted in the first round. Consider these players who weren't drafted in any round: Warren Moon, Priest Holmes, Wes Welker, Arian Foster, Tony Romo, Kurt Warner, James Harrison, and John Randle....

re: Collins request to be removed from The Draft...Denied by NFL - Tom Bronco
Why didn't he immediately fly home and give the police their interview? If he is not a suspect then wouldn't that have been the smartest thing to do?...

re: Who is on your All LSU basketball team? - Tom Bronco
I forgot about Don Redding. He would be my small forward on my team play team. He was the spark on the 1986 Cinderella Final Four Team and was better in that run than Williams or Blanton. ...

re: Do we have a final 4 quality basketball team next year? - Tom Bronco
[quote]I would say season wide 18-20ppg, 8-10rpg and 4-5apg would be within reach. [/quote]Those would be great numbers. No matter what it should be a lot of fun to watch. ...

re: Do we have a final 4 quality basketball team next year? - Tom Bronco
[quote]quote: Simmons is not a huge scorer. He absolutely is, just because he also looks to pass doesnt make him NOT a huge scorer. Simmons still averaged damn near 30 points per game this year on the best high school team in the country with a handful of Div-I signees. I hate to use this ...

re: Do we have a final 4 quality basketball team next year? - Tom Bronco
Simmons is not a huge scorer. He plays a team game and passes the ball. But if he gets 7 assists a game that would not just be a big impact but incredible. Most elite point guards only average 5 to 6. I think that with all of the double and triple teams Simmons will get, he will get fouled a lot....

re: Do we have a final 4 quality basketball team next year? - Tom Bronco
How could anyone possibly know this? The roster isn't even complete yet, one scholarship to go. And even then, lots of teams look good on paper but don't produce. Egos, attitudes, injuries and match ups will be huge. Still not much of a bench for the bigs unless we can score one more. Elbert or Darc...

re: Hayden Rettig :Rutger spring game - Tom Bronco
[quote]Rivers flamed out at Vandy. Bolden did the same at Eastern Michigan. Retting is the rant's last hope that Miles doesn't know shite about QB's. [/quote]So I forget. Who recruited Rivers and Bolden to LSU? Couldn't have been Miles right? It would be nice if he could judge talent correctl...

re: I thought Malik was going to school out of state - Tom Bronco
I think they need to reconsider the one and done and no signing out of high school. That works great for the NBA and other pro leagues. They get to see how the players do against a higher level of competition and they have a year for them to mature physically and mentally. No so good for college bal...

re: To all the Johnny Jones haters.. - Tom Bronco
[quote] Just look at how Princeton has given high seeds fits with their motion/back door cut offense. [/quote]With all due respect, if we ran Princeton's offense the fans would be screaming about how boring it is and that CJJ is not letting the players show their stuff. Might be a bit hard to recr...

re: Would Blakeney work at PG? **Envisoned Lineup - Tom Bronco
[quote] Why play Blakeney at PG on this roster? TQ showed last year that LSU's offense was at it's most efficient with him being the primary ball-handler Gray (yes him) can still be a good PG for this team if he's willing to run the offense instead of create the offense. He's still LSU's qu...

re: To all the Johnny Jones haters.. - Tom Bronco
To me the best proof of what CJJ means to this school's basketball program is this post. I am a die hard basketball fan. I followed the team during all of the Trent Johnson years and lived and mostly died with the team. There were maybe 10 of us doing that. Any basketball post but especially one...

re: If Players Aren't Going to Make It In the NBA, Why Not Stay? - Tom Bronco
Well first of all, in their mind's eye they are going to make it. These are elite athlete's who have been told their whole lives how great they are. Just because some stupid old fools tell them that they aren't that good doesn't mean they will listen. Just give them a chance and they will prove ever...
