Utah-Hawaii Alum,Ute basketball compares to BYU, the way Barney Fife
compares to Dirty Harry.Your rhetoric makes no sense at all.
Pay no attention to our jealous little friend from the hill - even in their
glory days, the Utes never had a player the calibre of Jabari Parker.The fact that BYU is still being considered by Jabari is a tribute to how far
Dave Rose has brought BYU in only seven seasons, and it's driving the
jealous hill trolls mad.
Utah Hawaii Alum-----Yes you are completely right again. Danny Ainge was a
total failure in the NBA.
U-H AlumSeriously??? A Ute talking smack about BYU hoops? We all
know you're obsessed with trying to make yourself feel better by
desperately trying to bash all things BYU but this has to be your most pathetic
Jabari Parker wants to play real college hoops to elevate his NBA value. BYu has
NEVER produced a great NBA player, or has ever competed on the national stage.
Parker will go to Duke........a real program.
I've played basketball at a very high level. Being a Hoosier, and playing
against amazingly talented players both in high school and college - and after
watching these Lone Peak boys play, I'm a believer.Nick Emery
in my opinion is one of the most dynamic players to come out of this state. His
shot is so quick, and he can shoot from anywhere, he's near impossible to
defend. I believe he'll be the next Jimmer - but Nick actually plays
defense.I don't know how Emery wasn't Mr. Basketball last
year - I've seen Loveridge play, he's good, but will not have the
impact Emery will have. I've been a fan of TJ for years.
I've watched that kid since 7th Grade play in AAU tournaments. Incredibly
talented, and I agree with the article, he's a natural, very good!I'm amazed that two of the best players to come along in a while are from
the same team. BYU is in great hands with these three recruits
alone. Should be fun to watch.
I love the video on youtube about Tyler and how diligently he worked to get to
where he is. My favorite quote from it is when his dad says (in referencing his
son's diligence and determination), "Sometimes maybe
not having the most natural talent or ability is not the worse thing in the
world." I've shared this with my own kids and the YW in our
ward as I've talked about our abilities to develop talents in new things.
I'm looking forward to watching Tyler play.
Combining talent with character makes it easy to be a fan of the Cougar
Final Four by 94!
It sure is nice to support an all around great sports program where every sport
is not just competitive but actually extremely good.
In the coming year(s), BYU will make another run at the Sweet Sixteen and
perhaps the Final Four. The program that Dave Rose has built is top notch. The
talent he has recruited is impressive. Looking forward to BYU basketball for
many years to come.
I agree with BigCougar that Utah produces more than its fair share of basketball
talent. I believe there is zero chance of landing Jabari. However, given the
talent of the three Lone Peak boys alone BYU should be able to maintain or
surpass the success they've seen in the last few years, which is quite
impressive. I believe that BYU is slowly but surely becoming a real basketball
power and the future is very bright for Rose and Company.
The level of local talented HS basketball in UTah is impressive. I can't
wait to see Emery, Mika, the 2 Haws boys all on the floor at the same time. That
will be quite a team. Now if we can just convince Jabari Parker to join them.
