    TJD is BACK

    Yeah, I think those things go hand in hand. Without as much room for true centers in the NBA, more are staying in college. Its a weird dynamic because it just makes the difference between NBA and college that much wider.

    TJD is BACK

    Before Game 1 of the Finals the other night, Adam Silver discussed changing to the All-NBA Team to better reflect positionless basketball. So, they could be getting rid of the positional requirements soon.

    TJD is BACK

    There's just stuff that is better kept in-house. He's kind of painted himself and Woodson into a corner a bit. Again, I don’t disagree with him, I just think it mistake to air that stuff publicly. He can make all those points crystal clear in the locker room. His wording publicly was not great IMO.

    TJD is BACK

    Then they've both kind of put themselves in a zero tolerance policy situation. We've seen that movie play out before. Again, not disagreeing with him, just no need to make this stuff public. Potentially does more harm than good.

    TJD is BACK

    Agree. Love that he's back and love that he's taking ownership of the program and team, etc. Love that! With that said, some things are meant to stay in-house, and I think yesterday was actually a misstep by TJD. If I'm a teammate or even Woodson, I'm kind of looking at him sideways today. He kind of put Woodson in a bit of a bind as well with his comments on what suspensions should be.

    TJD is BACK

    I would argue that TJD is partially, if not mostly, responsible for creating the drama. I agree with his stance on the things he said about NW and some of the drug stuff, but there was absolutely no reason to make that public. Again to be crystal clear, I agree with most of what he said, but I think it was a misstep in leadership to make all of that public. I agree with you that fans and the program have moved on from the NW debacle, but in fairness TJD is the one who brought it back up, not Phinisee, Lander, Stewart or Durr.

    I'm going to leave it at this and then do my best to stay out of any JG debates the rest of the offseason. I hope he makes a leap this offseason. He has a lot to work on, but also a lot of potential. I think Race wore down at the end of last season, so JG improving so that Woodson can better balance their minutes ( say something like 60/40) so Race stays fresh and JG can grow would be great for the team, program and both Race and JG.

    I'm out, not gonna debate it like this. Enjoy!

    Stop it HH, I am not being misleading. That's ridiculous for you to say that, and I'm not going out of my way to be dismissive. JG has a lot of potential and his growth will be great for him, the team and the program. With that said, I'm also not going to overhype him on what was really a spotty, up and down season.

    Yeah, it's a technicality. I get it, but I was going by Race's 7.5 rpg.

    2022-2023 IUBB Roster Projection

    Yeah, I'm not trying to be in a position to rain of JG's parade or position it that I don’t like him. He has good potential and his improvement absolutely helps the team. I'm also just not ready to anoint him a starting wing when he's never played the position or say he should be starting ahead of Race Thompson. I know JG had some strong moments the last 2 games, but at the same time he scored in double figures 4 times all season and they were pretty spread out, it wasn't like some run the last 2-3 weeks where everything clicked. From the New Year on he has as many 0 point games as he did double-digit games.

    I like Jordan Geronimo, I'm glad he stayed and am excited to see his continued development next season. With that said, it's like "The legend of Jordan Geronimo" the way some fans are hyping him up. I get Race had a tough last week or 2 of the season, but I'm not sure how anyone can say JG brings more to the table at this point? Race Thompson averaged 11ppg and 7.5rpg for a full season last year. Jordan Geronimo in two years has had one game in his career where he's done that and it was against Merrimack.

    Yeah, not sure what the rules are there. For current NBA players (see Al Horford this week) they just need to produce 2 negative tests and they can come back. Assuming (not sure though) it's the same for TJD and he can get two negatives, he'd still have time to do the small group workouts with teams. Obviously a lot of assumptions there, not clue what TJD's specific situation is.

    2022-2023 IUBB Roster Projection

    It's certainly not great for him of course, and I agree that he'll most likely be back. With that said, the small group team workouts are way more important than the combine, so as long as he gets cleared and his agent can load up his schedule with those, he still will have the opportunity to impress some teams.

    Draft Combine 2022

    Yeah, it means he's at least on the radar for teams, but not sure it necessarily means much more than that.
