Should know something by July 7.

I'm not confident
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I don't know much but...


















 



I know I love you
That may be all I need to know
Look at these eyes they never seen what matters
Look at these dreams so beaten and so battered
I don't know much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know
So many questions still left unanswered
So much I've never broken through
And when I feel you near me, sometimes I see so clearly
That only truth I'll never know is me and you
Look at this man so blessed with inspiration
Look at this soul still searching for salvation
I don't know much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know
I don't know much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know
I don't know much but I know I love you
That may be all there is to know

Well if he came back he would most likely be the leading scorer and a starter so I’d say he moves the needle quite a bit.

Garcia is the second player today, along with Morsell, that some Scoopers are saying doesn't "move the needle" much. And now that I think about it, I believe some said the same about DJ when he decided to leave.

I guess the MU needle is so stubborn it's difficult to move it.

Garcia was a burger boy who led all BEast freshmen in scoring and rebounding despite playing under The Worst Coach In College Basketball History. LOTS of college athletes get a LOT better between their freshman and sophomore seasons.

I'd sure as hell like to see how he moves the needle for us this coming season.

And I'm not sure how it could be spun as anything but a bad loss for the program if he goes. The program will survive. It's bigger than one player. But him leaving would not be a good thing, so I'm sorry to hear what TAMU just said.

A guy who is contemplating going to the NBA after freshman year doesn't move the needle?

That does seem silly.  There really is no grey area here.   He makes MU a better team. 

If he’s talking the national championship needle, he has a point.

Happy for the young man.

I hope he shoots lights-out at the combine.

ah...I’m pretty sure the Celtics are not thinking about trading-up to draft Garcia. Thinking you’re NBA talent doesn’t mean you’re NBA talent.

This team is going to stink next year if Dawson leaves.  Shaka hasn’t brought in any players better than him or DJ.  People here dismissing Dawson as no big loss must know more than NBA people

Every NBA team submitted votes for 70 players for the NBA Combine and G League Elite Camp today. Around 100 players will be invited after the tally count to participate in one of the two camps. With the Combine dates pushed back a month, expect quite a few int'l players to attend

https://twitter.com/DraftExpress/status/1400903980969041923

There are 355 NBA Draft entrants so far and Garcia was one of 100 invited to the combine. 60 of those will get drafted.
I think it's pretty safe to say he's an NBA talent.

Do foreign players get invites?

So the only way you can be considered an NBA talent is if teams trade up to draft you?

People keep acting like its 15-20 years ago when if you declared and didn't get drafted, that your odds were really long ever making it to the Show.  That is simply not the case any longer.  The NBA has done a lot better with player development over the last decade.  Dedicated G-League teams, two way contracts, expanded rosters, etc. all are ways that players can develop without being in college.

I would love to have Dawson back, but I doubt he is here next year.

Yes, it it.    No, he hasn't.    No, they don't.
