Understand but he is not ready. He didn't dominate the Big 12. Lots of $$ though.
He should go, absolutely positively. What is he going to do? Come back average another rebound a game, maybe another point and a half to his game? His stock was higher coming out of High School and it will only continue to go down because he isn't going to show the type of improvement to his sophomore year like Cole did.
Let him go. He's not our problem and probably shouldn't have been in the first place. I'm sure he's a nice kid, but his recruitment was surrounded by bad drama. I could never get behind him.
Let him go!
Why in the world would he, or anyone else, pass up a guaranteed NBA contract. Assuming he's a lottery pick, its a no brainer. Good luck, X, was fun cheering for you and the Hawks.
Makes no difference what anybody thinks.
this was a little different... First he IS a great guy. no hard feelings. but his family does not need money. no amount of money could pay for the experience of playing on a top team and the whole college experience With your brother. another 5 or 10 million? If we all new we were going to be financially good for life, would we pay to have another year of college atmosphere ? I would. NBA is a JOB! 800 games a year from star on team to off bench. can understand if you had money concerns... not the case here. seems like Carl is wanting to relive through X.. pretty sure he was big influence on X going. you could tell X was having fun. do hope CJ stays. they are good guys. sure hope Shelby comes , dreamland to pickup Knight and Lamb. but fun to think of a couple more great ones to go with the extreme talent coming back. Morris twins,Little,Reed,Brady,Tyshawn and Withey Robinson Johnson will be Much better still questions with Releford ( think he will surprise us ) . add Josh Shelby and KU will be right there by end of year. very possible final four team. top 14 players Marcus and Markieff, Mario, Tyshawn, Reed, Robinson, Brady , Withey, Johnson, Shelby,Releford , CJ ,Royce and Lamb. all excellent talent . wish Self would go to larger rotation so players could press and play hard knowing relief on the way.
Of course its a personal decision but I hate to see anyone that has a chance to get a college education to miss out on that. But if he not deciated to the team then let someone else play who is.
X was a good team player, doing what the coach wanted for the team. He struggled about mid season with his shots but recovered be tournament time. I forgot but second on third all time scorer for a freshman and usually finished in double digits. He reminded me a lot of Rush towards the end of the season. I wish him nothing but good luck on his journey in to the pros. It would be hard for anyone to walk away from a 7 digit salary and considering the NBA may change its position next year on salaries for college recruits this was the time to go. X was torn and in the press conference you could tell he enjoyed his time here and viewed KU as more than vehicle to the NBA.
