Montana, Green, and Smith were decent. It’s Bono, Cassel, Thigpen, Croyle, Huard, Palko, Orton, and the crap coaches that went with them (Crennel, Cunnigham, Edwards, Haley) that caused the dark ages. IMO
The idea in the NBA will be to use young guys in the G League unless there are injuries or ineffectiveness from veterans. Young players need to play. In the past, there wasn’t that opportunity in the NBA, but that is happening in the G League, along with the fact that there are more practices in the G League than the NBA due to the NBA travel schedule.
Devonte will spend most of this year in the G League, but I fully expect him to be in Charlotte to start next season.
@DanR HAHA nice. I’m really interested to see how he does tonight. I do agree he looks a little over weight but most of his highlights that I’ve seen feature him dunking guys that are shorter than him. Haven’t seen any with crazy handles or a good looking stroke. He looks athletic forsure but at this level you got be able to do more than dunk at 6’7 to be effective IMO.
For what its worth, the Packers traded Montgomery to Baltimore today. They are getting a 7th round pick in 2020 for him. Pretty clear that GB wanted to move him and wasn’t worried about what they might get back.
Exactly my friend. I just think Sunday sealed the deal - must of been kind of a poison for the team
Exactly. MU should be his dream job, he is from St. Louis and he had the Porter family with two outstanding players and originally from Columbia to give him a leg up and now it seems that Jontay, who would have been first round pick last draft, will not play again for MU.
MU was projected #8 in the SEC before the injury and now it will drop at least a couple of spots and will not better moving forward with lots of conference teams on the upswing.
