The Bolded has been my opinion since day one.  The reason Sam was open to a transfer was because he knew he wasn't ready to be drafted.  He, currently, is not athletic enough to be drafted.  By sitting out a year, he can work on speed, dribbling, attacking the rim.  I wouldn't be surprised if he would have transferred no matter what.  Feedback from scout's had to be similar and he either sat a year at MU or transferred somewhere else.

I think there's a big PR element to his decision, as well.  Had he stayed at MU, even if he had as good or an even better year as in the past, he likely wasn't getting drafted because nothing would stand out from the past.  Now, he's going to be considered an "impact transfer" for the reigning national champs.  Even if his numbers don't improve over what he put up at MU, his name will be out there more, and he'll be competing against Duke and UNC-level teams stocked with lottery picks.

I hope this isnt true...if so, its the 'Bear Case' on MUBB and the BEast.

C'mon Nads, you know better than this. Rican's opinion does not, even by the widest margin, infer hatred. Do you hate white males? Wouldn't know otherwise by your constant interjected comments, even if they are not relevant to the topic.
Hatred? Look no further than AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley.

You're outrageous (and Fox News parroted) politically commentary not withstanding...

There's a difference between being a "hater" and have "hatred" for something. Calling someone a cancer, IMO, definitely puts them in the "hater" category. Doesn't mean they literally "hate" the individual.

For those mentioning whispers of Sam not playing at MU next season due to his hip... did these whispers identify who the sitting out came from? Trainers/doctors? MU coaching staff? Sam/Hauser camp?

NBA teams aren't going to be any more or less impressed by Sam because he's an "impact transfer" or the conference in which he's playing (especially when he'll be 4-5 years older than a lot of those lottery picks he's playing against).

Hatred is the strongest of terms.  Cancer being just below it.   The scoopers who refer to Markus as a cancer would rather he not be on the team because he is theoretically destroying it.  There is little wiggle room for interpretation.   I’m sure you understand the point being made and if it reflected your point of view you would not have stood up for that scooper.

Say someone said AL was a cancer back in the day, you and 82 would be on the same page defending Al I would hope.

When you aren’t posting gibberish you seem like a smart person.  That post above is beneath you or you are simply trolling.

I think this is pretty accurate. NBA scouts know their stuff. And while they may be a bit too heavily influenced by a strong March performance from time to time, a storyline like the one mentioned above probably doesn't move the needle on his draft stock.

It does seem likely that Sam sees Bennett as being more capable of getting him ready for the next level than Wojo, though. Maybe Sam sees guys like Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy getting drafted and thinks Bennett played a key role in their development. I could buy that.

One Scooper said there were "no Markus haters on this board." I simply pointed out that one came right out and called Markus a "cancer."

The rest of your comment was political. And stoopid as shyte. Enjoy your racist hero.

While I disagree on the sentiment that NBA scouts are persuaded by the tournament at all (more likely the better players shine during it) I agree that Sam has the idea that Bennet will turn him into an nba product better then wojo will. Which probably has truth to it.

Terrible take. I hope that as a "doctor" you would understand cancer is not a word that should be used or thrown around lightly. Respect for you keeps going lower. You are reaching Cain level posts. Maybe you're one and the same.

Sorry Doc, as far as I’m concerned Rican and the rest you mentioned are haters.
