People also spoke condescendly about Troy when he left early and he has done okay for himself one year in. I will support Thomas's decision and hope that he can find success in the league. I cringe when some on here are overly critical of IU players who have played hard for IU and are simply trying to make money playing basketball.

Troy was a different case. Bryant regressed in his second year which is a huge red flag. Troy was going to learn nothing from another year of Crean. Bryant has the opportunity to learn how to play basketball under Miller. 

Troy also fit the bill of an NBA player. Bryant doesn't fit I don't think he can be an effective 4 or 5

Troy being a different case does not change my opinion that certain fans and posters talked about him and Thomas in a similar negative fashion.

Tom isn't quick enough to play on the perimeter and he's not strong enough to play in the post in the NBA. He has poor footwork. I don't think he can really guard any of the positions. We saw him get manhandled by no-name bigs many times last year. I remember him getting worked on the block by Fort Wayne's boys. I wish him well, but I'll be very surprised if he has an NBA career.

I haven't liked Troy since hearing about the incidents involving him and Luke Fischer when they were freshmen. I don't root for him to fail or anything, but I was happy that he left last year and I'm not interested in following his career.

Exactly. Troy is very athletic and fit's the nba game well. I don't see that in bryant but I wish him all the best. I really do.

I guess I'll take your house then

Lavoy Allen is quicker than TB as well and he sticks around because of his leadership. TB will get a shot no doubt, but how he handles himself on the court will go a long way in determining whether he has a long career or not.

If tb leaves he will be drafted no doubt in mind he will he will be a second rounder who will either sink or swim with nba bigs he will have to adapt to actually playing down low and put some bulk on his frame but battling against nba bigs will help him

Hate to see TB leave as another year under good coaching would prop his NBA stature. JB's lack of defensive effort along with RJ's turnover % won't make me miss either. Minutes will be decided on who buys in to Arch's plan. I wish them all the best regardless.

Please tell about these incidents
