Hope he's got a passport.
Good memories after one year for a talented team that underperformed?
2 years ;-)
Kris Wilkes 2018-2019 season:
17.4 ppg 31.7 mpg
4.8 rpg 43.3 fg%
1.7 apg 33.7 3fg%
Have to wonder how differently this plays out if he goes to college somewhere else. There's no way his development was optimized in the UCLA dumpster fire of late.
Well you know he didn’t learn any defense. I was very surprised by how high Romeo Langford went in the draft.
Concur. Did not see him going that high
Stevens could get serious flak with three players from Indiana particularly if they don’t perform.
Romeo wasn't quite the superstar people thought he might be, but he is 19 and efficiently scored 17 points per game on a Big Ten team with only one other good player. If he'd have been shooting the three well, he'd have been hyperefficient and would've averaged 20+, and there's reason to think injury played a part in the shooting woes. He's got at worst decent athleticism and is 6-6 with a 6-11 wingspan. And you thought he should go worse than 14?
pretty high on Sekou Doumbouya, then? And Okeke, a 6-8 PF with a bum knee (who's also a year older than RL)? How about the three euros who went 18, 19, and 20? Seen enough that they're probably better prospects too? Brandon nearly-23-years-old Clark, who went 21st: should he have gone ahead of RL too?
Again, I get that RL wasn't quite what people expected at IU, but he was taken 14th - not 4th. That's pretty good value for a guy who a year ago was in the conversation for best 18 year old prospect in the world.
And a lot of the ill-will, if you want to call it that, towards him stems from the fact that IU wasn't very good, which largely had nothing to do with him.
I answered your question
Many posters have admitted they don't even watch the NBA. You're wasting your time.
