No. He tells it how he thinks it is. Which wouldve involved trading verlander and Cabrera when they didn't make the playoffs and declaring Izzo and his program dead in the water in December of 08. He's such a caricature of the bandwagon, front running, New Yorker that he has to put some effort into it. His claim to fame is his notre dame rant, which even the most ardent of his supporters knew was the death rattle if JLS' regime. He won't discuss or go into any detail on a great many sports that most people that listen to sports talk want to hear because he "won't get any callers". As of I give a flying fuck what billy joe blowjob from Taylor thinks about anything.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
I like the OP's avatar.
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
And the Spartans lost in Crisler with two chances to win it at the end and it took Alfonzo Hero Boy to make two outstanding defensive plays to save the win for them.
Will watch with great interest as "Teen Wolvie" tries to accumulate more assists and points combined than turnovers when he plays us next season.

Yeah but you don't have to leave early to play in Europe. Many college hoops players can do that. You finish college to get a degree and give yourself options instead of being forced to go to Europe.
Not the point. Point is he isn't going to be an NBA player. Or at least he won't last.
Yeah every young kid in America dreams of one day growing up, moving to Serbia and playing basketball along side such greats as: Rašić, Aleksandar, Mačvan, Milan and Štimac, Vladimir.

Turkish 1st league players get paid $250k a year. If somebody offered me that to play basketball I would be on the next plane. So you're telling me you wouldn't go overseas to play ball for that?
Again, you're a butthurt little clown that's sole purpose here is to be a UM fluffer. Christ, your username was made because rocky predicted MSU wins over UM since he's been doing his predictions. He's what? 4-1 now? Yet you're still here beating your pathetic little drum, drawing RCMB detail while tenacious and nucky get the day off. I give you kudos for finally dropping the whole "I'm an MSU fan schtick". It was just getting embarrassing as you obviously knew.

Here's a blog by a sports agent on the D League-Europe debate.
Sports Agent Blog provides information about contract negotiations, NCAA rules and regulations, and other sports agent news.
A bunch of 7 foot guys flying commercial flights
"The first stop in the lurchy wooden rollercoaster that was my basketball career was in Athens, Greece, where I played for a team called Panionios and where I learned, 10 years before the rest of the world, how little respect many Greeks have for contract law. (I signed up to play for $105,000. I received $52,000. My agent and I sued the team for the remainder. We won. They appealed. We won again. The Greek government then changed the law, forgave teams like mine that were in arrears, and let them all start over, as long as they PROMISED TO NEVER DO IT AGAIN.)"
"Most European teams practice twice a day. This sounds reasonable to the average nine-to-fiver; he, rightly, would say that he has to spend eight hours a day in a place. Why should basketball players complain about having to spend five or six? This nine-to-fiver forgets two important parts to the story: that basketball practice, during which the player is subjected to physical abuse usually reserved for prisoners of war, is really hard on one’s body and thus, difficult to do all day, and that basketball players are a whiny lot.
In addition, there is the fact that these practices are often colossal wastes of time spent perfecting (or trying to perfect) one set play that the coach dreamed up while knocking back too many bottles of Rioja."

The guy was claiming to be an MSU fan while showing up in game threads insulting Izzo's daughter. It was a bit transparent.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
I have no idea where you got that number from, would love for you to provide a source. From a quick Google search, it looks as if the average player in Europe can make around 65,000-100,000 a year. Still more than what most in the D League are making, but if my ultimate goal is to play in the NBA then I might stay here.
Yes because the only options are Europe or the D-league. And because if you're goal if to play in the NBA, going to Europe is a much better bet than than the D-league.
His argument is to: Go to Europe make OK money (You can make way more doing real jobs in the US and just realizing you suck at basketball) and then retiring. Rather than play in the D-league where you might have a chance to make it but probably not and won't get paid for shit anyway.
Walton and Irvin are both very good basketball players
It will be interesting to see how they adapt to college ball.

You know who that is, Bob?
I think he will get drafted in the first round. Whether he lasts is a fare debate, but I saw a change in attitude from Hardaway this season as a player that makes me think he will have a pretty solid career. He 6'6 very good athleticism, solid handle, and solid jumpshooter. Accumulatedraft.com (a site that takes the top 25 draft sites and avg players draft spot before and after the NCAA tournament) has Tim Hardaway as 20.9 avg pick so he will be a 1st round pick.this years draft is incredibly weak (next years will be a great class,with 5-6 NBA ready players)
This is usually the most accurate draft site
Specializing in drafts with top players on the NBA horizon, player profiles, scouting reports, rankings and prospective international recruits.

You're right! College players leave early to go to the d-league only if they don't like their deal in Istanbul or Ankara. You win the interwebz. TH SR will have no trouble finding tight fitting head wear in that area. Or maybe if pops uses his connections he can get jr a spot in Tehran where they don't have any of those vile homosexuals that so offend his senses.
I think they'll be good. But some of the Walvies saying that they will pick up where Burke and Hardaway left off are ridiculous.
Isn't RockyWeakSauce, Opti?
Just a NPOY factory over there in AA.
Wait, he's still trying to pull the walverine in Spartan's clothes gag? excellent
Here are the budgets for teams in various leagues. Russia would be the best league obviously, my best friend his cousin plays in the KHL and has been treated like gold.

No. Even in jest he couldn't make up the bs opti does about UM. And UM-Flint is a pipedream for Trollsauce.
No RogueLeader is Opti.
