Thanks, RB as well as he's playing makes some forget how good Bazz really is. Calhoun always could pick the city kids who are tough, confident and yes cocky. Our guard future is bright. Bazz in another year will be an AA.
It sounds like "Born Ready" Lance Stephenson could have used someone like Ernest Likely in his life. I don't know why but i couldn't help but think of him when this paragraph came up "Drink too much of the poison -- the "you're the future," "you're headed for big things" chatter -- and complacency ensues. And complacency leads to underachieving." Dude had all the potential in the world but was an absolute head case
Great article, and really an amazing story. That guy Ernest Likely did something right, because Bazz could not be a nicer kid. And no, I don't think he is cocky. Bazz is actually very humble, just confident.
