RE: Josh to Celtics #1?
@Crimsonorblue22 - wonder if Calvert was bitter, envious, jealous, angry young woman wanting equal treatment as the KU Men’s BB? After all, she considered herself a good player I’m sure, but she and her team weren’t shown the same love, adoration, support from the KU fans. Did she think she was entitled to the same notoriety as Jackson & other players were receiving? Whatever her state of mind, she was toxic for the players. They should have ran as fast as they could from her!! If my son was slapped, kicked, pushed, yelled at by a drunken self-elated prima-donna, I’m not sure a gentlemanly response would have made any difference to girls like her wanting to chop & challenge the boys’ ego & manhood in the name of equality. These boys are still maturing. And if my daughter behaved the way Calvert did, she won’t be treated like a princess just because she’s a girl when she’s behaving like a mad bull in dress. Bet Josh’s mom will straighten him out, and hope he’ll avoid toxic Calverts of the world.
Frank "speed, toughness" Mason goes 1st or 2nd Round?
“Frank did a really nice job this morning,” Sixers vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley said after the workout, as reported by libertyballers.com. “He had a terrific year shooting the ball. He’s especially terrific in transition and finishes very well in the paint.”
Eversley said Mason’s strengths are “speed, quickness, toughness. He’s courageous, very courageous. He does a lot with his body.”
Mason said after the workout that he’d love to play for the Sixers and combine forces with former KU forward Joel Embiid.
“Oh yeah, it would be great to play with JoJo and be a part of this franchise,” the 5-foot-11 Mason said. “I think they’ve got a lot of young players that are really good that are working hard and it’s going to be special here pretty soon.”
Mason has worked out twice for the Sacramento Kings. He’s also worked out for Orlando, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Utah, Washington and others. The Kings, who have two first-round selections (5 and 10), could take Mason at No. 34.
"Ahead of Mason’s historic final year as a member of the Jayhawks, the two shared a conversation in which Selden says Mason essentially called his shot.
“He said before last year he’s going to win national player of the year,” Selden said Thursday, “and he went out and did it.”
RE: Josh to Celtics #1?
Jackson was acknowledged his adjustment to the NBA will go beyond X’s and O’s. “I have been taking an anger management course,” Jackson said. “I’m just wrapping it up right now. It’s just something that I had to do. I learned from the mistake I made. I’m making it through it.” What did he learn? “One of the biggest things I got out of it was just to worry about the things I can control and not to worry about the things that I can’t,” Jackson said. “It sounds so simple. But I went home and thought about that a lot and it made huge amount of sense to me. There’s a lot of things in this world that we cannot control. But yet it frustrates you. We can’t worry about them too much.”
RE: Good lord, kief!!!
My initial reaction was same as yours, but after the video, the Suns owner screwed the Morris boys. Kieff’s market value was much higher than what Sarver ended up paying because of Marcus package deal, and for Sarver not to honor his word? I’m not at all pleased with the Morris’ immature acts, but can understand. Older generations should lead and teach the younger ones of justice, courage, prudence and honor rather than self-importance and love for money. Actually, Sarver failed Kieff and younger generation.
@Lulufulu Amen! It smells corruption! Won’t be surprised if NCAA is under the influence & control of Nike -> slow death to KU via Diallo & other kids who sign with KU. Nike is making sure KU doesn’t get 5* & if KU finds hidden jewels, have NCAA choke KU. Pay off a few NCAA eligibility center folks (like FIFA) & Nike can have UK, Duke, UNC, Texas, etc going for NC. I’m for investigation of NCAA & demand transparency for its validity, credibility, legitimacy.
RE: Wasting Another Good Trey Balling Game on a Cupcake...Random or Indicative of Something Significant
@jaybate-1.0 Yikes. I’m afraid you’re right JB. Is this a repeat of last year?
RE: KU's letter to NCAA regarding Cheick Diallo
Can’t help but to believe NCAA is in bed with Nike and its accomplices to minimize KU. There’s no other explanation for singling out Diallo when other(s) from the same school has been cleared. This could have been going on for some time (i.e. Ben & Traylor) perhaps when the embargo started? This smells. Expose NCAA - see who owns Nike shares or sits on the board or partners with agents & media (i.e. ESPN, cable companies). Tip of the iceberg?
