Basketball player development
How much is Gafford kicking himself for trusting in Mike Anderson right about now?

Free falling.

Hope to God Muss can make a bigger impact over the course of our kids' careers.

Gafford should've left after 1 season for the back end of lottery or returned for one more under Muss.

He chose the worst decision he could've to leave after this year.

Why can’t we ever get one of our players to go to a decent team.

Thought it was a little funny there was a Muss-coached Nevada player picked before him

He's probably kicking himself for having a shitty attitude and taking games off.

If this happens, which it wont, wouldn't you be pissed with how he was here? Some of you act like hes such a great basketball player.

I also saw on Twitter where a Razorback fan said, "I hope you go in the first, but more than likely will end up in the second round". Gafford replied with, "LMAO". The kid needs to grow up and I am not his only critic.

Hes also said that hes had a lot of ups and downs in his career. His stent with us was meh when he was taunted as a lottery pick.

He disappointed me at times too but to act like he wasn't very good last year isn't a great take either.

re: Basketball player development
So why did a lottery pick fall to the 2nd round?

Inconsistent offensive game.
Limited post moves.
Lacks ability to create his own shot.

Exactly. Crazy enough you don't need any of those things to be a starting caliber NBA center anymore. You just have to answer 5 questions. 1. Can you block shots? 2. Can you run the pick and roll? 3. Are you super athletic and can dunk on almost anyone? 4. Are you 6'10" or taller? 5. Can you switch efficiently on D?

If you can answer yes to all 5 questions and stay healthy you will get paid $15+ million a year to be a starting NBA center averaging 15, 9, & 1.5. It's a great time to be a tall person in the NBA the bar has never been lower.
