@Herbert - but he may tranfer to byu after his mission (IF). I can dream but I
usually don't dream that way.
I don't see any of these guys as hall of fame types. There is no one of
Lebron, Duncan, Nowitski "cant miss" players.
You mean he's not going to play for BYU next year? Dang it!
Most of these young men are freshmen. That means that they are 18 years old.
There are a lot of things going on in the psyche of an 18 year old male. There
are lots of ups and downs physically as well as emotionally. In many cases,
they are still boys in men's bodies. That is why stars such as Kareem
Abdul Jabbar still believe in making freshmen ineligible in order to acclimate
to academic life. Good luck on that one with all of the money involved for
everyone concerned. I saw Julius Randle play for Kentucky against Louisville and
he was absolutely at the top of his game. It would appear that you have to look
at potential and then "throw the dice". That is the reason for psych
evaluations. So far, the Jazz have been very fortunate with the caliber of
character in their young players. In the NBA, winning doesn't always equate
with character unfortunately. LeBron James with all of his immense talent
thankfully has a great level of character. Until his emergence, the NBA was in
danger of imploding after Michael Jordan. After all, it is only a game but a
great influence on society.
Actually PM Smith Jabari both stated when he entered Duke that he had not
decided one way or the other (but was leaning towards going, says he really
wants to) AND had Coach K make clear that if he chose to do so he would be
supported in this decision (which Coach K did; not a stretch given players in
the ACC who 1 and done, or 2 and done... 1 and gone and then returned would fly
fine).And yes, I think he'll go.
The impending NBA contract money will be climbing even higher for Jabari in the
next few months. Wow.
He's not going on a mission - he made that clear when he entered college
and passed up on mission u in provo!!Look for him in the NBA next
Jazz may not get the top draft choice when comes to Lotter Time. Will Jabari be
available when draft come? Well, it depends, he might stay another year at Duke
or he could go on a mission. I am not saying he should go on a mission but it is
possible which is up to him and up stairs.Man, imagine if he had
chose to play at BYU, yeah I can dream on.
