I know) Anyway, I keep hearing this coming class is really deep this year.. what is yalls take on it? I heard Carmichael Dave this morning saying there are 6-7 future All Stars in this coming Draft but I think he was still kind of on board with "tanking" sort of.
Dude, Parker and Wiggins have a chance to be legendary players. Randle looks like a bonafide all star. I'm not going to try and act like some kind of college basketball expert, but I'm on board with tanking this year. What is the point of being mediocre? Either we have the 8th or 9th pick or we can be top three. We need a top three type guy who is transcendent. You can change the future of this team. Past those three, there are other studs from what I've heard and read but I haven't seen them play.
I usually don't care about college ball until Feb, but this year is going to be awesome. You should check it out.
The thing about tanking is we are trying to make a culture change right now, get the Players and Fans back and excited about the team etc. I'm not on board with any tanking unless it's nearing the last week/month of the season and we have a shot to gain some ping pong balls that way.
I'm getting interested in some of these college names this year so I hope to at least pay some attention to the big names this year.
