    I’ll concede your point on Okafor and Laettner, but there had been a lot of water under the bridge between the two; that’s something like a 25 year span. Okafor seems like an outlier in my recent...

    I feel like education is what you make out of it. I was a flake early on in college and I could have done that everywhere. I Feel that my post-graduate education gave me the tools to keep educating...

    My pitch to him would be that Coach K uses centers like he did with the Plumlees: rebound, defend, get baskets cleaning up the garbage and via the occasional oop down low. Duke runs offense for power...

    I could be misremembering, but it seems to me that in the past we didn't treat players as "Old Dogs" until the next college season started.

    Clarke’s shot looks good in that highlight video. His career trajectory is going to be great if he hits those with regularity. He is doing it all and looking like a Swiss Army knife.

    These summer league games are hard to watch because of what you mentioned. I think that part of the Zags' success over the years is the skill of knowing how to be a good teammate, and is part...

    It's OT because he's an Old Dog, but JW3 looked polished playing for the Rockets despite limited touches. I hope he sticks. They need every bit of post-presence they can get

    I see both sides. I'm hoping he wants to play with his buddies, experience March Madness, be a college star, and try to win a championship. I think that has potential to be a great...

    The East Coasters who are asleep when the Zags play are going to wonder where in the world this Brandon Clarke guy came from. I expect to see him regularly on Sporscenter’s Top Plays— on both sides...

    It was awesome reading how GU already is family to him. I can’t wait to see him play in a Zag uni.

    7 assists for Zach. Pretty cool. I thought this might be the reason to come back to GU this year— to show his play-making abilities on a consistent basis.
