Good luck, Brandon. Hope it all works out for you.
Congrats Brandon. I think he is in a great situation playing with CP3 and
Griffen. Happy for your success.
@But seriously folks"I love my independence."I see
what you did there. Just one problem... this is basketball. You aren't
independent there, you're in the WCC.
I HATE THE UTES........just kidding, but I had to break the streak from all the
good Ute Fans wishing Brandon well? It was getting so sweet in here I was
getting a cavity reading all the sweet Uties comments! Go Brandon!
I am excited for Brandon but he will have to have an amazing summer league and
pre-season to make the final roster. Realistically, he will probably be playing
in either the D league or Europe by this time next year. Hope I am wrong though.
Davies is one of my all-time favorite BYU basketball players and I really hope
he succeeds in whatever he ends up doing with the rest of his life.
Good luck Mr. Davies. There is a lot of talent on the Clips and just hope you
can get a roster spot.
As another Ute fan I wish him well. He has always seemed like a nice young man
with a lot of heart. Now go beat the Lakers!
Woohoo. I was just wondering if anyone was going to pick him up. Glad someone
did. Wish the Celtics would have but it will just be good to see anyone BYU
player play in the NBA.
The main reason Davies went undrafted is the second round was dominated by
foreign players who can stay abroad and improve their game, i.e. Kirelinko.
Also, Bledsoe isn't a wing player, but a point guard. There has been a lot
of interest in him this last year and I think the Clippers held onto him as
insurance in case Chris Paul left.
Good for Brandon. And...the comments are truly a breath of fresh air...thanks to
Congratulations to Brandon Davies. I truly admire the way he bounced back from
the Honor Code situation 2 years ago. It is great to see that that incident will
not be what he is known for. I hope he does well in the NBA. It is nice to see
both Utes and Cougars appreciating a good story about a good young man. If we
could always be this classy, it would be gret!
Living the dream! CP and Griffin on your team! Best of luck Brandon!
Hope he plays well in the summer league as the Clippers are pretty set in the
front court. Brandon will be a power forward in the NBA and the Clippers already
have a pretty good power forward named Griffin. But he should help some team.
Good to hear B will get a shot at making the team. Good to see the unified
comments here as well.
Good to hear! Congrats Brandon!
I hope he takes advantage to the opportunity and sticks with the team. Good for
you kid, good luck!!
I am glad for Brandon Davies. He's earned a shot at the NBA & now will
be part of a good team with a good coach. Congrats and best of luck!
@Wookie, ekute, motorbike:Thanks for your comments and class.
I'm a lifelong BYU fan, but have never understood the need for antagonism
and criticism thrown back and forth between BYU/UTAH/USU fans when the other
school/team/former player has success. When it's rivalry week, I'm
all for friendly, harmless banter and competitiveness. But the rest of the
time, I'm comfortable recognizing and even appreciating the successes of
the Damian Lillard's and Paul Kruger's that have come from our
state's collective universities. Everything else is just silly, insecure
fight-picking that makes fans from all 3 schools look bad.
Count another Ute fan in the department of being happy for Davies.This is
exactly why I wrote the comment I did last week, it's often better to go
undrafted than being selected in the 2nd round (teams don't have to sign
2nd rounders). This way a player can talk to teams that have a need for his
particular talents/position.Good for Davies, I hope he tears it up.
Good for Brandon. How excited he must be, to be on a team with CP3,
Griffin, Jordan, Rivers...For his sake...hope he sticks.
Great article!This is exactly why BYU and Tom Holmoe decided to join
the Pacific Coast Conference. Exposure, exposure and exposure.
Smart move on the part of the Clippers. Brandon will prove himself well.
i wonder what the details are about it being partially guaranteed.
Another success story for BYU. Great program, great athletes.I love my
Good Luck Mr. Davies.Playing with CP3 will be a lot of fun and will
cater to your athleticism. Stay healthy!Go UTES!!
My only conciliation is... at least he didn't go to the Lakers (AKA West
All Star Team). I think I can cheer for the Clippers to win games.
