    It’s weird that we talk of the NBA draft for two guys who were truly overrated, who can’t start for an average D1 team. I just don’t see it , not even close.

    That's one hell of a long parenthetical.

    LOL...no not sadgatorguy but, they should be having the time of their lives before the game becomes a business for them or they just stop playing. Granted they are still very young and probably had a target on their backs from the beginning. The second half of the UGA game looked like fun.
    I'd like to THINK that they could play focused AND have fun which may lead to more success. To me it looks like they are not.

    Does this make me ....thinkergatorguy ?

    Unfortunately, this years team started with too many guys thinking they were going to show their wares this year and be able to punch the golden NBA ticket next year. Scottie, Nembhard, KJ and Mann who I have to believe is coming back, may get a chance one day, but it won't be next year. Is it better to take a shot at the G league or international? or come back to the Gators and try to make a run? No one can tell me the G league or international is going to be a clearly better option, they all have time still.

    I never said that I thought he was ready, only that I think he will test the water. This season has been a disappointment not only for the team but for Mann. I think he will test the water and if that doesn’t go well, he may look to play elsewhere. That’s just a gut feeling, nothing based on info or anything I’ve read.

    Both Mann and Lewis would be projecting 1st round right now with a great coach. This season has been really poorly coached by Mike White. He has not put our statistically best lineup together at all for the last 4 games (AN, NL, KJ, KB, OP). He has been forcing offensive and defensive play calls and styles that don’t fit the talent.

    i think their production is a function of the offense they are in. During Billy’s day picks were bread and butter components of our offense. Now they happen sporadically.

    Good game tonight. At least the passes were uptempo.

    Lewis might be get drafted this year, but Imo another year would really benefit him a lot and make him into a first round pick. I never blame anyone though if they go after the money.

    If Nembhard leaves and Mann tests the water (and leaves) that leaves Ques as the only PG on the roster next season? Jesus take the wheel.

    If next years team doesn’t play fast.... I may change my name to 34Hoop and join the ranks.

    appleby, Glover, Mann, Key, Duruji, Payne. . . Every one of em can run.... fast.

    You think that Mann and Lewis aren't performing offensively by hitting shots and creating shots because of the coach/offense?

    Why is it that Keyontae and Nembhard can take it to the rack?
