    Donovan had serious cold feet about the NBA (see his two days as head coach of the Orlando Magic). He was open about missing many aspects of the college game and building a program. A blue blood offer (at the time) was something he very much considered if the program would have valued him as highly as his agents felt he should have been.

    Respectfully disagree. While the hype train might have gotten ahold of it and made it seem like a “dome deal” very prematurely, more than one person connected to the program has recognized that Donovan had interest. To the point where financials were discussed. I’m sure others on the board can cooberate.

    The first season of “You” was at least worth the time. Sort of a Dexter feel to it. Idk.

    It was widely circulated at the time, after some “insiders” had posted Billy D was the hire, that we failed to open up the checkbook and chose a mid major hire with a lower price tag.

    This will get laughed at. But this year’s team might be better with James Blackmon instead of Romeo based on their skill set. And yes, I remember how poorly JB was on the defensive end. But you could count on him for 3-4 threes a game.

    All 25 of the NW student section chanting Who’s Your Daddy to end a win against us. Never thought I’d see this day 20 years ago when NW was Bloomington North.

    I’ll help the chorus of posters about to reply to you: he’s gone. He’s not coming back no matter what. He’s going to be drafted in the top ten according to every draft service projection. The nba drafts on potential. He’s an elite scorer, our offense just doesn’t showcase him. I think I covered them all.

    That’s only on a straight up and down jump shot, not on a drive with momentum towards a set defender.

    I don’t think it’s so much that his totals don’t look great, but how he get them. It seems like a lot of his points come on late free throws, but if he’s an elite scorer how does he let his team go on 6 minute droughts and get down for 10-14 without making something happen. You’re the only elite five star on your team, be an alpha, look like it and do what you can do.

    Not to pile on, but that sort of lends itself to coaching doesn’t it? If you have talent on paper, but aren’t getting it on the court, it might be because your system isn’t working to get that talent playing to its potential or putting the players in positions to be successful.

    So the ceiling is as good as this year’s team?

    So, realistically, is there any scenario where we are any better next year? TJD coming in needigm to develop on offense and add weight trying to replace Juwan. Romeo leaving. Even if we get Brooks, donthise two replace a “once in a generation” scorer and a senior leader who bangs down low? Are we really talking “wait ‘til 2021”?

    How many of those points came on free throws? Other than second half against Maryland it hasn’t “looked” like he’s playing well very often based on making plays.

    You’re right, I don’t watch the NBA regularly. But they have to have talent that would score more than 3 points in the first half against a team of 3 star college talent playing SG don’t they? Is it that watered down?

    I get that every draft service projects Romeo as a lottery pick. And I’ve heard posters crucify anyone who says he won’t be, because the NBA drafts on potential. But put me in the group that just has a hard time seeing an NBA star the way he plays right now. If they’re drafting on potential they better be willing to wait 3-4 years. Yes, he can get to the rim. But the NBA is a Golden State league where three point shooting reigns king. You can’t drive the lane against grown men. I’ll support his decision, but if he’s in a starting lineup before year four in the league I’ll be surprised.
