Also I read taliek and donyell have been there. I'm pretty sure I also read there were others too. It would be really nice/good/cool if Okafor and adrien showed up too

The positive of this lockout will be that our former guys will reconnect with the program. Also, it cant hurt when recruits come up (I read Purvis was there the other day) and see the family and tradition that is UCONN.

This is unbelievable news. Do you guys really understand the implications of this? This team is getting a crash course on how to play the game from the best in the business. Combine that with the frightful level of talent, and I'm getting goose bumps. ,

In years past guys would come back and scrimmage with the current UConn players. It was always beneficial and certainly a great legal recruiting benefit for UConn. Depending on how long the lock out lasts, UConn will have this benefit for a much longer time this season. Other schools with NBA players will benefit from this as well, but few schools have as many NBA players as UConn. A good outcome from a bad situation at least from UConn's perspective. The worst outcome is for Kemba. But he has his clothing contract to hopefully hold him over until the NBA resolves its problems.

Kemba will be fine. LOL.

IMHO UCONN's pros are some of the most connected to their school in the whole NCAA family. They really seem to like coming back and hanging out. What did JC say?- Ray wishes he was still here or something like that? Good stuff.

Off to hang out with Manchester O, Cage the Elephant, the Black keys and Cold Play with my cool band manager friends at Music Mid town here in Atl. Just thought I would share.

I love that photo. You all know that stance. It happens when the ball goes OB near Jim soon after a bad call from the ref. The ref is forced to face JC before he gets the ball back.

The last labor issue had a major impact in that our former players were there in 1998/99 helping our first championship team.

It's a small world. One of my good friends is their manager. They had me doing shots of te-kill-ya after the show at 2am. I am still not right in the head.
