No, we didn't discuss Marshall - you know, since he doesn't play for Indiana.

Portland's Nolan Smith recorded a dnp for almost half their games in 2011-12.
Not a bad thing...coaching staff was just bringing him along sloooooooooooooowly.

Didn't realize Nolan was a lottery pick, or one that left eligibility on the table because he was in a hurry to cash in on his NBA draft potential just to ride pine and not win a national championship and earn his college degree.

1st round pick from dook that left eligibility on the table because he was in a hurry to cash in on his NBA draft potential just to ride pine and not win a national championship and earn his college degree?

No, but you do realize he played 4 years with a decent coach, is older, should be stronger and more advanced in the development of his skills, and still rides the pine, don't you?

And you know duke fans that thought Avery did the right thing entering the nba draft instead of stay one more year?

Yes, Nolan made the right choice and made the most of his college career. He was also never projected as a lottery pick so I'm not sure leaving early would have been an option anyway. Especially for a 6'2'' shooting guard.

Sorry, but not all college players that play 4 years and get a degree automatically become NBA starters and/or stars.
News flash, maybe he doesnt have the game for the NBA. How many college starters go on to NBA stardome. There are only around 360 NBA jobs and there are 300+ colleges in D1 that play hoops. Law of averages or are you an AFAM grad and have no clue about what I am talking.
That is about as stupid a statement as I have seen from you. And I have seen some pretty stupid statements.

But, but.... you clowns told us that Hansbrough would be a bust if he didn't immediately become a star. Never mind that he'll have a much longer and more productive NBA career than Smith. And, if a 4-year player can't do it, why should a 2-year player be expected to?
So, which is it? Are 4-year players who get a degree and a NC ring automatically supposed to be NBA stars, or can they just be average players in the league of 360 who will make a good enough living for enough years to see them through their lifetime?
Oh, and change "seen" to "written" in your last sentence, and you nailed it.

The point being that 903 dookie homer and handy randy like to play it both ways.
