If LSU gets the 5-star stud Monday, WW & Crew could be gearing up for another run. Just think. Wade is back; Joe Schmoe is gone; and F. King is running on empty. How sweet it is!

Welcome back, Javonte. We’ll be ready to greet you in the PMAC later this year with our general back at the helm. They couldn’t break us, and now it’s fricking ON

Waters needs come back too. I don't think he will.

What does Water stand to gain from coming back? He’s showcased his abilities for two seasons in the SEC and done well at the combine. He’s not going to get any bigger. It makes sense he would go now

Waters is not growing any taller or improving his game at LSU. Makes no sense for Waters to come back.

Thank god. That’s huge news for both Smart and LSU. He wasn’t ready, but I understand testing the waters with everything going on. Glad he did his due diligence and kept an open mind.

Yeah, why would he take a pay cut??

Not a pay cut, he wouldn't have been drafted and ended up making NBA minimum in NBA as well as what he got here
