$57 million could buy you LeVeon Bell, one of the best running backs in the NFL, for 3 seasons. And that would be a ton more money than any other running back is making. Thats insane when you think about the punishment running backs take. George Hill made a sound financial choice of sports.
I always like Collins and he is still active in the KU community. Not only does he show up to all of the camps and events but he sends talent to KU too. This year alone he has encouraged two PG’s to commit to KU.
@BeddieKU23@Lulufulu He definitely has the tools to become a great defensive player but I think he’s just too lazy. He just stands there most the time and makes no attempt to guard. In his defense that’s just the way most players are in the league these days. I don’t really think Wigs will get to be a whole lot more than what he is now IMO. A volume shooter that takes 35+ shots to get his 25 points, just like Kobe late in his career. I’ll be honest Wigs to me isn’t a great basketball player, he is just one of the best athletes on this planet right now and that alone makes him decent.
It seems an international coach with deep pockets and an eye for talent could clean up watching the unsigned players at NBA summer league. Possibly offer prior to NBA offers and drive up the price / urgency. Anyone know the restrictions on offering an unsigned draft pick? Can any NBA team offer? Does the team with draft rights then have rights on a match ? Does that window on draft rights for non guaranteed contracts expire in a specific amount of time? Can any international team offer? Can the NBA team with draft rights then have rights on a match?
Caught some of Wayne’s game yesterday in the semi’s against the Blazers. Wasn’t his best of the summer. His team fell apart after going up 16 late in the 2nd qtr. Glad overall he had a great showing at Summer League which he can use as momentum for a spot in the Grizzlies rotation. I’m impressed at how hard he’s worked to overcome not being drafted.
@Crimsonorblue22 Other than Minnesota and Dallas, I haven’t heard his name connected to a team. His best bet at this point might be to go to Europe or China for a year and get some consistent playing time and then come back to the NBA. I really wouldn’t be surprised if his NBA career is over at this point.
I’m sorry but I have to totally disagree. Lavar Ball is that Dad on the side lines screaming at his kids. Plus What business does he have? Oh you mean trying to milk his kids for the life style he never earned?
Yes Lavar is getting the free media, yet he is also putting extreme pressure on his kids to preform. It’s hard enough to stick in the NBA let alone with your Dad making claims you’re the best that has ever picked up a basketball.
Lonzo could be a fine NBA player. Yet with his Dad spouting out his mouth the greatest ever. Anything less than a Lebron or Jordan type career. He will be considered a failure. That’s not cool.
