    maybe he'll be the first ex-dookie to finally make a real NBA mark.

    If I might, I would like to proffer an answer to that question. Consider these numbers, 5 consecutive years of scandals and investigations, 2 -7 in the last 9 games against your rival in basketball and 0 - 2 in your last two meetings in football, a 1-4 start to the conference season, and a flagship that is sinking faster than the Titanic. Now what else would you have to talk about? Well that and a tournament game played several years ago.

    I have a 1978 Chevy Vega with 250,000 miles on it and a blown engine. The tires are bad and the upholstery has been worn down to the padding. Oh, and it was in a flood. I value this vehicle at $100,000 but if you give me a down payment of $30,000 I'll finance the rest.

    Just because a jeweler puts a price tag of $100,000 on some gaudy jewelry doesn't mean that the goods are worth $100,000. You yourself just insinuated it would be preposterous to give out a line of credit for that amount to anyone without a proven means of paying the balance. And certainly a guy averaging 5 ppg in college doesn't seem like a good risk either... something that's supported by the fact that he spent two years in the D league at $20K per year.

    Of course, the line of thinking that you wouldn't extend the credit to just anyone sort of goes out the window if the down payment made actually covers the cost and profit of the goods sold. At that point, you would happily extend credit to anyone naive enough to pay the inflated price.

    Your problem is that you have nothing other than your assumption of what the jeweler would or would not do. It's not as clear cut as say... weed dealing felons providing high end rental cars.

    Again... If I have a product that cost me $20k and I can sell it for $100k with a huge down payment and to be paid in full in 3 months I will do that deal anytime. If any of you guys want me to get you funded on a $100k deal for a high mark up product(like brown diamonds) and you will pay my cost for the product and all I have to do is collect the money or repo the jewelry(coming out slick with paid for jewelry) I am ready to hook you up. Especially if you will have a degree from one of the best colleges in the world. Pro tip ~ A CPU would have bought that deal without human eyes ever hitting it for certain products. I would say the lender had a reasonable amount of consideration with the down payment to assume that he could pay for the items. If he doesn't then he could sue for the money or repo the jewelry and keep the down payment. Is there one person on this site that would not sign off on free money?

    Unproven allegations against the cold hard facts of proven impermissible benefits to two players... fantasy against reality says hi right back.

    Oh, and as for the public vs. private fallacy, the funding status of a university has no bearing in an NCAA investigation. None of the things that resulted in PJ or LMac getting caught were items discovered through freedom of information processes.

    Jabari will be a second round pick when K gets finished with him.
