Yea Maymon would have to have a good senior year obviously, I was thinking around 15/12, so that'd be Blair numbers. Blair's stock plummeted because of his no ACL issue that popped up also though.

If he has a good year, and shows a little mid range pull up, I think he'll sneak onto a team. He has the potential atleast, which is all my original point was.
I'm agreeing he has potential, and even if he doesn't get drafted I see him making a team. I just see him more Anthony Mason than Blair. Those averages are going to be hard to get. We are going to have 6 guys that could average around 10per game. I see 13-9. The good thing is the NBA doesn't draft based on stats. I really hope Maymon makes it btw.

Me too, that's why I worry about him having such a good year. I think he wants to graduate though.
I hope so, if he left this year he wouldn't get drafted. Imo He has definitely improved a lot this year, still needs to work on a couple things before he is ready. Her situation financially might play a factor in his decision though. I know that was a key factor in Liggins leaving UK early.

He needs to improve his handle and d, imo. I hope he continues to improve and gets drafted, I personally just don't see it right now. Lucky for him though I don't make draft boards. Lol
Luckily for him scoring and athleticism are what attracts GMs, not defense lol. GMs like to think they can improve defense and ball handling, if you're averaging 20ppg in SEC play you're gonna get some people's attention.

I have a feeling an agent told Hopson the same thing. Lol Btw Liggins got drafted the year Hopson didn't. Of course I'm sure you could counter that, and we could go back and forth with examples forever. Like I said for him it depends on the strength of the draft class. IMO

Edit: I wanna clear up something, I think Jordys desire to improve is better than Hopsons. Also GMs think they can improve everything about a players game. It's more about team needs.

Lots of people do, and frankly it's not a big deal. But I guess your parents don't. It's ok.
I stopped living off my parents at the age of 18, but no neither of them have media rooms in their house.

However, at the age of 23 I do have my own house which includes a 1,000sq game room that holds my 60" tv. I have a 7.1 Onkyo home theatre system with theatre seats, and a full size pool table as well. The walls are custom painted: 1 is orange and white checkerboard, one is blue/red patriots design, the other blue/white pinstripes. So no, while I don't have a projector I could have easily done one, but chose not to and opted for a 3D TV.

Unfortunately I don't have a tanning bed at my disposal, but I'm sure living with Papa Pearl there's atleast 2 or 3 of them around the house for you to use.

I definitely agree with you on all accounts.

Compensate much or just insecure?

Figured since you wanted to throw things around and insinuate I live with my parents I'd tell you a bit about myself.

I'll gladly post some pictures of my game room, I'd love to see yours as well, nothing like a nicely done Tennessee game/media room.
Lost track of this thread yesterday. Mine is not a "Tennessee" media room (although I do have a 1998 NC poster and a John Ward signed picture of Neyland Stadium hanging). It started off as a man cave - beer fridge, fireplace, wetbar, seating and projection TV. But with kids it's become the play/game/hell breaks loose room. Pictures would be pretty boring. We still drop the screen and fire up the Vidikron for big games and movie night, but it's not near as cool as it was.

I hear that, no kids on my end so I haven't had to transform mine, still my man cave.
