  1. Good luck to Jerome! I don't see this as a big loss, there is a reason we brought in a similar but better player in Kopp.
  2. It has to be Joker - he is incredible to watch.
  3. I hear you, but is that really different than any sport sans maybe the NFL? Have you watched a CBB game between two bad teams? It's brutal.
  4. I am curious how man NBA games you two have watched in the past month?
  5. How would Irving have extended Crean's time? He had like 6 years after Kyrie finished playing in college.
  6. I think him leaving Illinois had more to do with wanting tomplay PG than anything.
  7. Amazing a disaster of an NBA team like the Celts can come back from down 25 with the low amount of effort nba teams play with
  8. So his dad took a salary reduction?
  9. He could definitely start with Trayce.
  10. So he blocks everything and he shoots almost every time he touches it, but it's a lot of dunking and making threes. I don't want to wish anyone off of our roster, but him and TJD together could be terrifying for opposing teams.
  11. I know it's NAIA, but the dude has 475 blocks in his career and is a good 3p shooter. Yes please!
  12. You must live near @5fouls, I'm pretty sure his ex-wives were all very friendly with the neighbor "Mr. Hung".
  13. I agree it's a problem, but what sport doesn't have it? I hear you, but also we just hired a coach from the NBA. There's naturally going to be a lot of NBA talk in threads about a guy who spent his entire career coaching the NBA.
  14. I mean what do you think they're letting go? The NBA does miss travels sometimes, but again, they have a different rule and I think that's a much harder call to make in traffic and game speed than you guys imagine. But in terms of letting fouls and stuff go? The NBA is pretty spot on with foul calls most of the time. Some guys get the star treatment which is true of any sport. When I think of letting calls go in basketball, I think of like a Purdue/Wisconsin game where the game looks more like a male orgy than basketball with all the mugging, pulling, yanking, and hip thrusting goin
  15. No, I'm not joking. The NBA is not poorly officiated. Of course they miss calls, that's going to happen in any sport, but I very rarely watch an NBA game and feel as if the officials determined the outcome. I frequently feel that way watching college basketball.
  16. There are 1200+ NBA games every year, not including the playoffs. Of course you can pull clips of missed call, but you can do that in any sport. I don't even see how it is debatable which level of basketball has better officiating though.
  17. I agree about the talent of the players, I actually completely disagree on the officiating. College basketball officials are the absolute worst and let a significant amount more go and have way more inconsistencies game to game and even play to play. I'm not even sure what NBA officials let go. They have a gather step in the NBA and college doesn't have that at this time, so they're not letting anymore travels go than college they just have a different rule.
  18. I sold my Audi a few months back and we are a one car family now, so I feel this. I loved my car but couldn't justify $700/month for a car I was hardly using, and my wife has an SUV so it was an easy decision on which to keep. I'll probably never have to go into an office again even when Covid is better. I will have to do business travel again but Uber to the airport solves that pretty easily.
  19. This is true, but part of that is because NBA coaches and teams are better at maximizing what guys do. Duncan Robinson wasn't even a full-time starter at Michigan yet he starts and plays a pivotal role for the Heat because Spoelstra finds a way to maximize the use of one of the best shooters on the planet.
  20. It absolutely does. For some reason there is a perception amongst some of ours fans that the NBA is just pounding the ball up top and going ISO, but that is much more prevalent in college than the NBA. Before someone posts a video of James Harden, just understand that is the exception not the rule. For the most part, an NBA defense isn't going to allow a team to just go ISO then break you down off of the dribble; they'll trap and force the ball out of someones hand. Think back to our games against MSU were Aaron Henry took over or the Illinois game where Ayo did - that's not going to hap
  21. From my perspective yes, I would think he has enough info to make a decision. But I also realize I have a very small snapshot into the complete picture of what each player games into account when they make these decisions. I like our roster, I think we have a good team and have 13 guys that will find a way to meaningfully contribute to wins next year. The guard in question has shown several times in his career he can make winning plays for this program.
  22. This is all speculation, but the conversation of a guard moving on very well may not be centered around one of the guys who made clear they are committ6to Indiana regardless of coach. There is one scholarship guard on the roster that I can't recall hearing from since the season ended...
  23. That was approaching 50 years ago, the game is very different now.
  24. You don't like the NBA so please stop posting in this thread.
