    Hard to wrap my head around the growth he demonstrated in just 3 years time. Learned a language, went from a relative bench warmer to a likely lottery pick, and added his name to the pantheon of Gonzaga greats. So excited to see what is next for Rui...he has the chance to be truly special at the next level.

    From the Spokesman-Review http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...for-nba-draft/


    “The last three years at Gonzaga have been a dream come true, and now I’d like to pursue my next dream of playing in the NBA,” Hachimura said in GU release. “This was a significant decision for my family and myself. I just want to thank everyone at Gonzaga, especially the coaching staff and all of my teammates who went to battle with me and are my brothers for life.

    “My three years as a Zag were very special and something I will never forget. I want to thank Zag nation and Spokane, Washington, for all of the love and support, and to the people of Japan who have been there cheering me on the whole way. Forever a Zag.”

    I will surely miss that smile.

    We have not seen the best of Rui yet. I think he will develop an ability to shoot from the outside. He has such a beautiful shot. There was something inside of him that kept him from shooting more accurately from the outside. I hope he plays for a team that wants to see him become a very good outside shooter because I believe he can be that.

    I wish nothing but the best for him (and selfishly that he winds up with the Knicks or Nets so my son and I can see him!)

    He’s destined to be our biggest NBA star, since John Stockton.

    It's hard to pick a favorite, but Rui would have to be up there.

    Thank you Rui and good luck in the NBA.
