    This BYU fan is especially happy to see Wright succeeding in the NBA. I admired the way he worked his way up through juco to Utah to getting drafted - and then sticking - with the Raptors. I always respected his ability to be a solid game manager with the Utes and felt he added a lot when he was in SLC.

    But competition for playing time among guards is ferocious in the NBA. I hope Delon has a nice long Andre Miller-type career in the big league.

    Poetl might be able to do well too if he keeps himself in good physical condition & avoids injuries.

    What is with all the articles in the DN about former Utes in the NBA? Why not articles about the BYU players in the NBA. . . oh, uh, never mind. . .

    BYU fans said both of these guys would bust in the NBA. They also said Kuzma needed another year. Say what you want, but Coach Krysko has coached up three solid NBA players in three strait years.
