So Waters had looked at going pro last year. He can be assured that he will never see an NBA court. Naz Reid, he is considered a “one and done.” He is officially “done.” That was a joke. With the SEC gaining a greater prominence now on the national stage, LSU will likely have a losing season in the SEC.

Jesus dude take it easy. Horrible game and rough start to the season, but chill with your catastrophe syndrome

Go full retard and quit watching before the season gets started if you would like, but publically bashing our players by name is unnecessary.

First off, that is one of the most painful games i've ever watched. there was a foul on almost every possession. Second of all, it felt super sloppy. Tremont Waters had like 100 turnovers. We got in a groove right before half time and even a little after, but then we went back to undisciplined basketball and they stayed true to their game plan. We got outplayed, out coached, and out "fundamentaled." But I still feel like the future is bright.

Tremont Waters was really bad between the turnovers and all those pull-up Golden State ranged threes, that can't be our offense......?

WW is the new JJ. WW got "out coached" again. Doesn't matter how many 5 stars with no coaching and discipline. Sad but true.

Tremont Waters needs to be benched asap. He has been a turnover magnet.
