He looks like a heck of a ball player. Very smooth with the ball. Gets to the rim effortlessly and is able to get shots off while staying under control.

I hope you're right. And he certainly may not, but I wasn't envisioning us having this much turnover this year, so when it comes to hoops I try to expect the unexpected. I agree with everything you're saying though. When will we know about Stretch?

With the new rules I could see him testing the waters

Based on? We don’t even know if he is going to redshirt or not.

So the original thought was IF he blows up. So that takes we don't know if he is going to redshirt out of it. 

Second based off me knowing if he had a big season and he has ideal size and skill set for his position; and there is no downside for him to see where he's at on draft boards

FWIW, I saw a rumor on the rant there is something wrong with his visa and may not play until maybe January.

My original post was regarding Chuma testing the NBA waters. I really know nothing about Babatunde's game outside of he's supposed to be similar to Horace Spencer in that his strength is defense but needs to polish his offensive game

Oh. I thought he was answering to “when will we know about Stretch.” My sincere apologies to the much endowed and blessed one.

It was poorly written on my part. I just tacked on the Stretch bit at the end without making it clear I was changing the subject my bad

Getting back to Okoro the more I watch his film the more I like him. Now we need a few new threads or updated threads about some other talented plays saying they will be committing to Auburn. We are going to be losing an awful lot of players after this year and we need to stock up. We are going to need a C/PF , SG, PG to go along with Okoro and possibly one more

The only animosity that I remember is you getting butthurt when I said Lonzo would be an average NBA player. I ‘member.

Nah you confuse disagreeing with animosity. But I was talking about your post in this thread. And you didn't say average I'm pretty sure you said he wouldn't be good and would be a liability on defense etc....

I did say he would be a defensive liability at times and he wasn’t so I was wrong there. I underestimated his craftiness. He wasn’t physically imposing either though. He was good defensively, not great.  What I said about him was:

 Lonzo will be a "star" in the sense that he's the PG of the Lakers but he won't be a superstar. His offense needs work and his defense is atrocious. He very well could be Jason Kidd-like but hell, RW just averaged a triple double for the whole regular season and RW is nowhere near a winner. 

 

Regardless, welcome back. Hang around the NBA tread during the season too.

Ok, I thought I remembered it. I feel like he was very good on D, especially to be a rookie. But I expected that, he was much more athletic than people thought coming out of the draft. Shooting was bad but that was expected. I was disappointed with the free throw shooting though. But imo great first season.
