    Grant Williams is the best NBA basketvol since…

    Grant playing in more playoff games is a product of his team/coach and he barely played at all in about half those games. Robert Horry has 7 titles. He's not better than Charles Barkley with 0, nor does he have a better playoff resume than Barkley who averaged 23/13/3.5 in his playoff career...

    Grant Williams is the best NBA basketvol since…

    What?? That's nor even remotely accurate. Tobias has a career playoff average of 17.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game over 44 games. Grant has averaged 5.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 46 playoff games, he barely played in about half his career playoff games. Grant...

    Reggie was a great Vol but didn't do much in the NBA.

    The Official “Regular Posters of the Basketball Forum” Thread

    Baseball is the one sport where even the worst teams win. I mean we lost 2 of 3 to a terrible Kentucky team. Even the bottom MLB teams can beat the best MLB teams and it's going to happen much more frequently in baseball than it would in football/basketball.

    Poll: Would you rather have Auburn, Florida, USCjr or UK as a permanent rival?

    Kentucky, Vandy and Alabama are far and away our most historic match ups. We have played Ole Miss more often than Florida over the years. It's only been recently that we have played Georgia more than we played Georgia Tech.

    '22 NY PF Tobe Awaka (Tennessee commit)

    The Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden would be the best way to do that. Syracuse is 250+ miles away from the Bronx. MSG is only 14 miles away.

    '22 NY PF Tobe Awaka (Tennessee commit)

    No, was reclassifying to 2023 because he had no meaningful scholarship opportunities until late in the process. He is a class of 2022 member. He isn't arriving here early like Bates did at Memphis. I've given the reasons I'm concerned about it. He has a whole lot to lose and little to gain by...

    '22 NY PF Tobe Awaka (Tennessee commit)

    He was a 2022 recruit that was going to prep school for a year to try and get a scholarship.

    "When you're a freshman, now you get to come in and take a couple of classes and adjust when there's not 40,000 [students on campus] or when there's not all the pressure of classroom work, athletic work and then the social activity that goes on with kids their first year away from home,"...

    '22 NY PF Tobe Awaka (Tennessee commit)

    I'm not distraught but I absolutely fail to see any upside for him or Tennessee in him losing time with the team and staff, plus risking an injury for something that generally only serves as a vehicle to get kids noticed by colleges. Taking the risk makes little sense to me regardless of whether...

    I said it would be a disaster for him, not Tennessee. There's no upside and a ton of downside to it.

    Tamba to the transfer portal

    In the team pictures he looked about 6'8 or 6'9. He looked shorter than Uros, Aidoo and BHH.

    '22 NY PF Tobe Awaka (Tennessee commit)

    We don't and will never know if it hurt Zeigler or not, though it's likely he would have been better/more ready had he been known in spring and got an extra couple of month of conditioning and skill work with the team/staff. He played extended AAU as an attempt to land a scholarship, he arrived...

    Tennessee Vols Basketball Recruiting

    I'll be surprised if Ramey is anywhere but Duke after everything I'm seeing about it. Keels sticking to the NBA gives him a clearer path for big minutes there.

    '22 NY PF Tobe Awaka (Tennessee commit)

    Seems a risky and odd decision then. Maybe he knows he's going to red-shirt regardless. I'd pick spending 8 hours a week with my new coaching staff in the conditioning program and getting skill instruction over playing a bunch of meaningless AAU games. His AAU coach is failing him by not...
