Corey Evans tweeted that Jalen Wilson has scheduled his first visit, but it’s premium so I couldn’t see where. Anyone know ??
Kansas. May 30 through June 1.
Yep. Love that we are getting the first visit.
Thankfully the info was also posted by Evan on 24/7 in the VIP section of the KU board as I do not have Rivals premium but I don’t mind 24/7 for the full site access. Just posting about this so people aren’t wondering if I have Rivals premium. Always happy to share 24/7 stuff.
Grimes complaints ring hollow. He had plenty of opportunity. He wasn’t the pony guard, because Dotson was the better option. If that’s the case, why would he be a better nba point guard than college? Delusional kiddo. Hope he gets his head on straight, he has a ton of work ahead of him.
@approxinfinity Dok didn’t play much against Wofford. It was just interesting to hear their coach say how much time they spent game planning for the big guy. (And then complaining KU played a different game when he went down)
Dok is the single most important player on this roster regardless of whomever Bill signs. If he’d play better D and rebound with authority he would be the most dominate post player since Shaq. No one in college is strong enough to man him up.
Dok is a game changer, but he is but one piece of an extremely flawed roster at this point.
The thing that is starting to make me worry some now is Devon is showing in the combine , pretty solid - - although before they said he wasn’t even in the top 2 rounds. - I think no matter how he ends up , strong show and all it’s not good enough to get him even into a latte 1srt round. Plus he still has the weakness that NBA listed that he needs to come back and work on.
They stated Devon recorded in the top 5 in the 3/4 sprint at 3.14 sec - -and hit just shy of 60% of various 3 pt shots - and he had 5-8 from 2pt - - - had 9 assists - - - 6 rebounds - - - a Block in 22 minutes. - -That’s a pretty solid line in 22 minutes of play - - I think this line was against the team Quentin was playing on. - -had 2 pretty solid outings - -that’s what kind of scares me. - -but hopefully he will come back - -work on those weakness – like I said after next year he comes back – ALL bets are off. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
WHAT IF the three was a 2.5? 2.4? What if the three had a rolling valuation based upon scarcity of attempts across the league? So lets say on a TNT Tuesday when only 4 teams are playing, and two of them are Golden State and Houston Rockets, the three is barely worth more than a 2, which is good news for the Knicks who are playing the Raptors in the other game.
@Kcmatt7 I didn’t get one last year, but there are official KU sanctioned autograph men’s (and women’s) basketballs you can buy. I’m not sure where you get them online (used to be kustore.com; it’s changed), but you could pick them up at the allen field house gift shop.
You can, and the proceeds actually end up going to charity. Minus a small 10% markup on the cost of the ball.
I use the eye test… There are times that NBA defense is so laughable that the channel demands to be changed and usually is. Again, you sight statistics, and are making my point… The 3-point and overall shooting percentages in the NBA are going down every year. Why? Because they are jacking up too many damn threes and do not pass the ball for easier shots. And It is all ISO inside, therefore why even play defense (which they don’t)? Bad product. Low to mid 30s from 3 for so-called pros? Low to mid 30s from 3 for so-called pros! Why do you think guys like Doncic are dominating? The NBA is a bad product and it is only going to get worse. The NCAA tournament this year blew away anything that the NBA can offer, anything. Even the so-called pro prognosticators all but admitted as much.
Shooting percentages are NOT going down. That is just factually incorrect.
If you want to say that the analytics of shooting more threes makes the game less enjoyable, that’s a subjective argument. We can agree or disagree on that. But saying that shooting percentages are down is objectively wrong. They are not. 2Pt% is steady. 3Pt% is steady, after trending up in recent years.
@Kcmatt7 To make it worse, the loss to Arizona was in the sweet 16. The best KU team ever…maybe…could’nt get out of the sweet freaking 16. Yes, I’m mad at KUSteve for doing that to us as well.
@drgnslayr Even at the college level the athleticism amazes me. Back in the 80’s when I was on campus I spent a lot of time playing ball in Robinson Gym. After football season was over in November the football players spent a lot of time playing hoops. These guys, who by the way, were not elite football players by any measure, flew up and down that court. I had zero chance to guard any of them. They were amazing. I was impressed.
Appreciate the suggestions andguidance @BShark and @drgnslayr - I made the outreach to the Self’s staff and the AD’s office. Alas, no nibbles (or sips). Perhaps HCBS is just a beer guy after all as per @Marco… Perhaps its just a matter of everyone being focused on and getting ducks in a row for good news from SDS, Tucker, Hampton et al…
