    Indiana Players Now In The Portal

    All this talk about Jadlow and punchable faces reminded me of this moment...
  2. That's insane, I just can't believe it. Total photoshop BS! There is no way there is a Macy's in West Laf.

    IUBB vs POTFB - Saturday, 2/4/23 @ 4:00 on ESPN

    His big hit is going to come on his outside shooting. I think Woodson definitely wanted to expand his game, but he either has zero confidence in it or he just doesn't have it. He is literally 0/3...3... in his career from 3 pt range, I mean when they were pounding Bethune-Cookman or Jackson State, get some outside shots on tape. I think he sorta has Horace Grants game, but those guys are the running backs of the NBA, stars of old with little value in this era.

    If I am CJ Gunn, I am not happy with how I am playing. Just look at Banks, he was in the same boat as CJ or even worse pt wise. The last 3 games he has been needed with JG down and he has put in good minutes, starting to carve out a role for himself. CJ has had his opportunities but a shooter that plays questionable defense being 2/25 from 3pt...well, son you are not playing until you can prove in mop up minutes that you are ready for league play. I am not down on him, he is young and was never expected to contribute greatly this season, just saying if he is unhappy with his current situation, take a selfie and look at that guy for answers.

    Yet I imagine there will be plenty of drinks bought for TJD and Race Thompson at Killroys tonight and plenty of Gatorade at film tomorrow.
  7. Missing his overall talent was tough enough, missing an actual point guard once X got in foul trouble was game changing.

    Draft Combine 2022

    I get it. I think he thought he would take a bigger leap this last season. Not sure why he didn't expand his game. Maybe he doesn't have it in him, maybe he needs a push. I hope he returns to IU, but he doesn't seem the type to try and force a game he doesn't possess for personal gain to the detriment of the team. Kind of a tough spot for a 6'9" guy that wants to play in the NBA, but may not be able to stretch his game to the three point line.

    Draft Combine 2022

    There should be interest, he has skills. But I think the problem are that his primary skills are all near the basket, which is basketball 15 yrs ago. It is pretty simple, to be an NBA player today, he has to expand his game by 5 to 10 ft minimum. Now whether he does that at IU or somewhere else is the big question we are concerned with.

    Agree 100%. That is why, while living in FL about a 1/4 of a mile from my kids school, I have installed a snow machine and hill that I require my boys to walk up hill both to and from school for 2 miles every day on their way to classes.
  12. Yeah, I was a little too snarky, my apologies. It inadvertently, came off as directed towards you, that was not my intention. I just disagree strongly with honkeyman that TJD is making a decision by June 1st based "on whether or not a team commits to putting him on their team" three weeks before the draft even happens. TJD is a wonderful college player, but his lack of game outside 15 ft hasn't worked in the NBA for 15-20 yrs. No team is going to commit an NBA roster spot, before the draft, before trades, before TC to the 14tor 15th man on the roster. TJD should be, and likely is, listening to his father and a vast array of NBA insiders they have access to concerning his potential value, if the consensus is he is a top 35 guy, more power to him, but if some singular scout or FO person tells him, "hey we really want you at #35 when no one else tells him he is on their draft board, he would be wise to not put all his eggs in that basket. I think it is all moot, because I don't see him being a guy that teams would feel they need to guarantee a spot to, I guess we will find out soon enough.
  13. Not disparaging BGleas, but Honkyman seems to think that some team may guarantee TJD that they will draft him in the mid thirties and that would be a done deal. Even BGleas qualified the promises as kept "almost always." I would imagine that a team would likely hold true to form if they had the pick, short of a major steal dropping, but no way they don't make another move if it benefits the team because they said they would draft a guy in the second round. Can you imagine a GM saying, "Thanks we really like ________________________ and would totally trade our pick for him if we hadn't promised TJD..." or " So you would like to give us your 1st next season for the 35th pick this season? Well, unfortunately I pinky swore with this one guy and you know pinky swears..." Draft promises for guys in the lottery are one thing but no GM is going to hold a 2nd rnd pick hostage for a fringe player if there are better offers. And if there is one, he won't be a GM for long.
  14. If BGleas says it happens all the time, well then I had no idea we had a poster that had the ear of so many NBA GM's as to know what kind of iron clad, on my mother's grave promises to fringe roster guys are being thrown out there willy nilly. My mistake.
