  • @BigBad I don’t think he would’ve responded well to Coach Self, and apparently he didn’t respond to Coach K either - thus the transfer rumors.

    @BShark He is Charmin soft. I remember someone when it looked like he might sign with us - a professional opinion guy, no one on here - comparing him to Kevin McHale which, in retrospect, was an obvious blasphemy. Maybe (wish I could remember where I read or heard it) he just said it due to Hurt being white and from Minnesota. One would hope anyway.

    Hurt is going to be an NBA bust, another diva who wasn’t quite - not by a long shot - as good as he thought that he was. Serious though, after this past season - comparing the two, and knowing that we’ll have Braun for 4 years - I’ll take Braun over Hurt.



  • @Marco Agree totally with “I’ll take Braun over Hurt.” Didn’t watch Duke much, but the few times I did Hurt very seldom would mix it up like Braun began to do. Hurt seemed to stand outside the 3 pt. line waiting for a pass so he could shoot.

    @BShark said in Other bball news:

    Hurt is Charmin soft. Probably for the best that he didn’t come here. Right now he is absolutely a better college player than Braun and Enaruna though.

    This is always interesting to ponder. Would a soft player like Hurt have been destroyed mentally here or would practicing against Mitch, David, and Doke, while Self instilling toughness have made him much better?

    Seems like a common theme among players during the Self era is they thought about transferring. This was the case with multiple players on the 08 team.

    Then of course Self does end up breaking some players like Bragg.

    I feel like Self has softened up a bit lately, but not too much.



  • I would not trade Braun for Hurt. Braun is a better defender and shooter at this stage and his toughness is something I would take over Hurt anyday.

    For me I would have this plus Braun’s effort. That kid flat out hustles every second he’s out out there.

    It’s going to be a sad senior night 3 years from now.



  • @Marco said in Other bball news:

    @jayballer73 I’m pretty comfortable with our having signed Braun and Enaruna over Hurt, ditto Stanley. Bad luck for Wilson, but he’ll contribute.

    oh I agree for sure with Christian & Tristian I think they are going to end up being very nice - - Braun got off to a good start. - - Now as far as Cassius emmmmmm, not so sure, the kid is an absolute beast and boy can the kid GET UP major hops. - - Plus I wouldn’t say at this point any was that Braun or Tristian’s defense is any or maybe a pinch better the what Cassius offered, now that’s not saying much but. I think the D between the 3 is a pretty much even kill, on the offensive end - - Cassius much much better. - - -Possibly Braun & Stanley fairly close with the 3 point shoot however Cassius a much better driver and finisher at the rim - -Cassius and Tristian on the offensive end - - no contest right now. – rebounding wise Cassius better rebounder the either. - wish we could of had all 3. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Hurt is a true rep of the brohood

    Preach. If you removed the ranking from their names and just showed unbiased people game film from last year I’d bet 90% would pick Braun over Hurt.

    here is a question though would you trade Braun for Stanley ? lol



  • @jayballer73 hmmm 1 yr. he’s definitely a great and better athlete.



  • @jayballer73

    Absolutely



  • Knowing COVID wipes out the tournament? Hell no. If the tournament happens…Stanley definitely raises the ceiling of the team.

    😂 thats fantastic.

    In other news, congrats on becoming the first NBA player to suit up in Nike’s auto-lacing Adapt BB model last season, Jason!



  • Talk about a what if scenario. KU was runner up for both Beal and Otto Porter in 2011. Does KU win the title that year with those two on the team along with the other pieces KU had?

    If we get both? Absolutely. Beal probably starts over EJ and Porter plays more than Justin Wesley. Less Teahan and Wesley gets us over the hump against UK in that game the way were playing.



  • got 37 minutes? of course you do…It’s corona-time.

    I stumbled on this going down a youtube rabbit hole. I have no idea who the interviewer is and nor do I care…but it’s merely a Gethro meet and greet.



  • KSU’s projected starting center (Levi Stockard) is transferring. They and Miz will murder our SoS.

    No, I’ll take the four year Braun over Stanley - who is going pro - any day. Question. Did Braun make us a better team this year? Could Stanley have done for us what Braun did?



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I wasn’t talking about better athlete. Was talking about who would you rather have? Stanley who has turned pro, or Braun who made us a whole lot better and will be here for 4 years?

    Yes Braun made us a better team this year , and yes Braun is going to be a very quality 4 year player for us. - -However having said that , a much as I like Braun and am very happy he probably isa4 year player. IF I had to choose between Braun & Stanley I would take Cassius in a New York Minute - - hands down

    Stanley just a much better Athlete all around. Better Scorer ,Better rebounder , I’d say no glaring difference defensively , neither one plays that great of defense - -ok defense maybe, BUT great or really good? - -Na.

    Look at it also like this if the game was on the line and Stanley and Braun were your choices to take THAT shot at Crunch time who would you rather have taking that shot? It’s not a knock on Braun , it’s just what it is - - - better athlete. Christian is a solid competitor But my money has to roll with Stanley.

    Another thing as far as better, What is a major factor the NBA drafts on ? - - Answer , they put a lot into potential. So who do you think has the better NBA potential at this point? - -Who has the better chance of landing a roster spot at this point Cassius? - - or Christian.

    Now in 4 years ?hmmmm Maybe - -doubt it but maybe. Again not knocking Christian just simple. not saying or meaning anything here but right now Do we think Christian would get drafted by the NBA ? - - I sure don’t. doesn’t mean Stanley makes it either BUT I would like his chances a lot better then Christians right ? - Sorry buddy but for me - -Again if I had to choose , I’d take Cassisu ANY DAY over Christian. – -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
