Self: Having two of NBA draft's top picks 'means a lot' for KU

Hmmmm Danny never took a kid ( Embiid ) from no where on the rivals board... when Self started recruiting.... to the # 3 pick in draft and actually would have been #1 without foot problem... Danny is great .. but Self much better coach.. and yes especially big men .

Analysts: KU-bound duo deserving all-stars

yes .. dunks are like 90% as we know bunnies are missed frequently.. 90% compared to 60% DUNKS energize the team and the crowd ! would Much rather have Ellis DUNK ! his % and points per game would go up...

Column: For our sakes, Embiid should stay at KU

I know I am nuts... Jo is very different .. his family is doing well , he will never be out of the draft.. X Henry is doing great in the NBA right now... his family had money .. he would have been fine.. he plays on a team that loses most nights.. ask him if he would give up a few mil to have back a year where he was king , a year like we all know college best year of all of our lives.. a year where he wins almost every game.. another year to play ball with his brother.. yep all of those who say grab the money because you have never had millions.. millions can wait , but never Never can you buy all the experiences , the relationships , the fun of college .. so go ahead tell em to run for the cash.. 40 mil so much different from 42 mil... by the way the stupid injury theory is crazy .. ask Okafor.. 10 years and 50 mil later... yes we are selfish .. at the same time please let a kid have some fun.. if you watched X Henry .. he WANTED to stay .. he gave in to pressure from everyone grab the dough.. years later he gets beat almost every night .. his team is a joke.. let a young man make his own decisions .. Either way I can see he loves life and wish him the best.. but for Tom and me .. stay..

Notebook: Joel Embiid planned to play in Sweet 16

UConn center Emeka Okafor missed two Big East tournament games with a stress fracture of the lower back in 2004 and went on to lead the Huskies to the national championship that season, scoring 24 points in the title game. Okafor took a path similar to Embiid’s in that he received feedback from spine specialists in two different cities and, like Embiid, was projected to be drafted in the first few picks. Also, initial MRI tests taken after Okafor began to experience back pain did not show any stress fracture.

The second specialist Okafor saw was Dr. Andrew Dossett in Dallas, according to a March 2004 story published by

Dr. Jeff Anderson, identified in the story as UConn’s director of sports medicine, told “Dr. Dossett told Emeka that he finds this problem in hundreds of elite athletes and they’re still playing. What happens is the stress fracture is on a tiny little part of the bone and then the extra motion triggers muscle around it to go into pain and then a spasm and that’s when you see Emeka’s face wince. He told him it’s not a long-term problem. This is not a catastrophic finding.”

Okafor was selected second, behind Dwight Howard, in the 2004 NBA draft. He has averaged 12.3 points and 9.9 rebounds in nine NBA seasons

Notebook: Joel Embiid planned to play in Sweet 16

tough break for Jo... bad thing is will take bunch of time for fans to get over not playing IF he turns pro. kind of like Selby.. We all knew Wiggins would go and any one can have off night.. I would Really like to hear from Hudey.. she was trainer for Okafor who had the same stress fracture and played and went on to be MVP of NCAA Championship and long career in NBA.. not sure it felt right to most a Doctor in California was calling the shots.... look bunch of things went wrong.. it happens.. sure hope Jo comes back gets stronger . just bad way to go .. KU had faith in Jo when he was not ranked in top 100 recruits... all said time heals .. and time will heal Jo's back.. hope to get to see him at KU next year.. but just wish IF he is going .. tell us NOW ! do not drag out the pain... Good luck to all this years players , had fun watching .. How about Tarik.. in my mind he will go down as one of the best people ever to play at Kansas . love to hear him talk about his college experience.. hope to see him as a Chiefs player .. he he
