Wouldn't he have been one year delayed to the D-League and in the same situation?  o why was it a mistake?


How would Vander have improved his situation by returning for his senior year?

I know you are being sarcastic but this post is probably closer to being accurate than the hypothetical scenario where Vander returns to school and magically becomes Denzel Valentine.

Seriously, I'm asking questions to get opinions.  I really have no opinion myself on when or why a player should leave early.

So Stone made a mistake?

Depends on what his priorities are and how the next couple of years work out for him. 

What point are you trying to make with this anyway?  Are you trying to nail down some sort of objective criteria that will allow you to immediately determine if a player made a poor decision by leaving early?  That is as impossible as it is pointless.

Heisenberg logic:

A: "OK bud, you won the bet. I owe you $20, payable $10 this year, $10 next year."

H: "cool!"

A: "instead of paying you $10 each year.. how about I offer this up? I will give you $15!!!!! 150%!!! but only next year!"

H: "Woah! I was only get a max of $10 either year! $15 next year sounds awesome! yeah bud let's do it!!!"

A long way to go.  The referendum was non-binding, and only Parliment has the legal right to decide.  That creates a political mess, and Cameron was savvy to resign immediately to force/delay that hand.  Today was an emotional reaction, let's see what happens when the rational sets in.

Non-binding is irrelevant.  Cameron reigned so they can get someone that is Pro-BRexit to lead them in leaving (probably Boris Johnson).  So it will happen.

What happens next?  Next ... which is why the DJIA was down 600 points.

END OF THE EU? Germany warns FIVE more countries could leave Europe after Brexit
FIVE European countries may seek to follow Britainís lead in leaving the EU in a Brexit domino effect, Germany has warned.

The EU is coming apart.  It is going back to the 1970s.  To do business in the 28 countries of the EU, you'll need to make 28 different version of your product (one for each country's rules) deal in 12 currencies and 7 languages.

So why do you think the markets reacted so badly?

I hope I'm wrong.

This has been an enjoyable back-and-forth.

Especially enjoyable watching Heisy's thesis -- many theses, actually -- batted back and forth like a ping-pong ball with a crack in it.

Not on a daily basis.  I want to spend their time managing my stuff,  not talking people off the ledge.

This was an unusual and significant day. My comment to you was based on you going after someone for "looking at it"...

Not a daily basis issue.

To think it's worthy of critiquing someone for considering the implications of a potentially significant event... strange.

Not if you are a first round pick.

So Stone made a mistake?

So is it ever a mistake to come out early?


Not if you are a first round pick.

I thought  ,while listening to all the commentary last night on Denzell Valentine, that Vander  could have put himself in a similar position with a big Senior Season. Lots of the commentators focused on the fact that the biggest thing Denzell brought to the table was that he could actually actually play basketball well as opposed to just being a physical specimen.


Not this again.

Vander would not have been any better than he is now.  Borderline NBA talent at best.
