this was the one player I wanted the most for this class - he is, to me, the best overall guard on both sides of the ball by far. I cannot believe he was so underappreciated - just watching the kid you had to know that he is special. If it does come to fruition - it's all I want for my birthday...
Bouk still needs to show me he is "that guy" - not at all saying he won't be but we shall see
If UConn lands Hawkins there is no doubt in my mind he will be "the guy"
I think Martin has a chance to be special but he is not Hawkins
The NBA has turned into a joke - the administration is greedy and that causes them to be ignorant of moral well being.
The players, especially the "superstars" who have become spokespeople for political arenas speak out of both sides of their mouths - they ignore the sweatshops of corporations...
According to many here UConn will be competing for the NBE title yet we are a 10 seed?? Head bang
I think if UConn makes it to the dance above a play-in status I will be thrilled just to be a participant.
But we need a season first..............................
He had some really nice teams at Ilini but they never panned out except that late 80's team that had Kendall Gill, Marcus Liberty, Nick Anderson, Kenny Battle and Larry Smith (plus a few others I have forgotten. I remember them beating Cuse to get to Final Four and should have bested Michigan in...
If Jackson can defend and mix it up for the boards, Polley isn't going to see the floor except when DH feels he needs some 3 pt shooting. I just don't see Polley coming back and eager to get physical - something that doesn't come naturally for him.
Hopefully this isn't the case but my gut tells...
Jon Avitable at Meinecke on New Britain Avenue in West Hartford is where I go with my Subaru and my wife's Honda
He has always treated me fair.
Tell him his banker sent you!!
I have heard great things about Absolute Auto also
they have really no NBA tradition, as the only regular that they have in the league (Steven Adams) wrote in his book how much he hated his experience there.
Charles Smith, Sam Young, Von Cummings, Mark Blount, Dejuan Blair, Eric Mobley, Jerome Lane, Aaron Gray all had good runs in the league...
AG is a warrior - on the court and in life
He has gone through so much physically and mentally
The team will miss him for sure and I will miss him.
I was always in his and CV's court even when 75% of those here and in the chat were killing them both.
I agree with Mau - this team doesn't come...
Probably the one I hit one day in 1969 while playing in the empty field in back of Sacred Heart Church in Vernon.
I was never a power hitter by any means but it must have been a combination of the Nehi Orange soda, twizzlers and a few fireballs that mojo'd my testosterone to a maximum level.
I love all the enthusiasm on the board over this pick and what DH has done so far
But to even compare him to JC is laughable
Let's win the BE a few times and get to an Elite Eight before we start to hang any hints of impending greatness. Until he wins at least 2 NCAAs - he is not knocking on the...
No, lets kiss all their asses and let the people make up their taxes that have been forgiven
I could give a crap if they all left
If we keep voting for the idiots that make these kiss ass decisions,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
In my heart I felt that if that 89-90 team had gotten past that damn Duke team they would have won out
The team had a real mojo working.
Were they the most talented? No, but it surely was on a mission and an extremely cohesive unit (in my mind, more so than some of the more talented teams)
Diggins looks like a solid PG candidate and I would love to see him in a UConn, however, I am stuck on Hawkins - just love his game.
Absolutely no knock on Diggins - he is a fine looking PG - just 2 different styles
Lived with them on and off during the summers the first few years after they bought the beach house. Once in a while people told me they would see Sticks driving Pat's Jag down Route 1!!! I never saw it myself but I always saw it parked downtown in front of the bookstore or the women's clothing...
DH is built and trained mentally for the college game - no way is he NBA material now and I don't see it in him
KO should have stayed in the NBA arena - it fits him and that is his comfort zone - always has been an NBA guy - he relates to that type of athlete vs the college kids
Brad Stevens is...
