We don't have to imagine it. It's happening. And it's great that the athletes who make college basketball possible finally are getting slices of the multi-billion-dollar pie.

It's not good for the game and it also makes them less likely to get an education imo.

Slow.

Slow, no doubt. But to slow I would add strong and tough.

Some personal trainer had videos working Joplin and a high school freshman out in Marquette’s practice gym yesterday.

I was pretty close with Scott Christopherson our freshman year and I remember when he decided he was transferring he’d call me to go shoot around at the Rec Center.

Obviously Jop could decide he wants to transfer at any time, but having 3 players enter the portal and exit interviews happening this past week I feel like they wouldn’t be giving someone outside the program access to train him in the Al if there was some thought he’d be leaving.

I was disappointed when Christopherson transferred.  Crean never gave him a chance and he wasn’t the type of player Buzz valued (because he could actually shoot).  We could’ve used him on some of those first Buzz teams and he ended up being a good player for Iowa State.

He did hit that huge shot in Cincinnati.

I was moreso saying put yourself in that position as a 20 year old in college with $800k and think of what that would've been like for you, but sure.

Fair.

That’s about 100,000 times what I typically had on my pocket when I was at MU!

We’ll agree to disagree. The game is healthier than ever, and kids have all kinds of educational opportunities.

Yeah it was a bummer for him to leave but probably a better fit at ISU. If I remember correctly, he missed a few games early with a knee injury. Tough enough for a freshman to break into the rotation of a veteran team whose 3 best players were guards. Even tougher when you miss games early.

I can’t think of a worse fit in Shaka’s system than a slow, plodding, back to the basket big. The rebounding and post scoring would be nice. But he’d totally change the dynamic of a top 10 offense, and not defend anyone.

He’d fit with GTown and Maryland, assuming the Hoyas look like Cooley’s Dence teams

How would Hunter Dickinson look in blue and gold, rather than blue and maize.

Not a good fit.

It's great for the game. More talent is staying in college rather than leaving early to go pro. Not sure how it would make it less likely for someone to get an education

Yeah, I don't get people saying they would not want Dickenson at MU. He blocks shots, is a good passer, has averaged 18 points a game for his career, and is a good team player.

  if he wanted to play for shaka, it would have to be on shaka's terms.  if shaka takes him, he's going to win or he's going to ride the pines

Marquette could have a top 10 team in the preseason next year and you want to bring in a guy who will expect 25-30 minutes? 

Dickinson isn't the problem himself, the problem is adding a player that could totally change team chemistry because of the minutes he would expect.  If the 9 remaining players all come back next year, there isn't a glaring need, so Shaka has to be very careful on how he wants to fill any open spots.

Never really understood this angle.
Of course “fit” and “chemistry” matters, but that’s already in place if everyone stays.
Dickinson, or any Dickinson type, doesn’t come in and change the chemistry or style of play.
He either gets slotted in when Marquette needs a different style of play- eg late in games with a lead needing a bruiser/rebounder down low in a slower pace of play
OR, he wants to showcase his own ability to run up and down the court and flourish in that existing top 10 offensive system, to show folks at the next level what he can do.

Coach Shaka holds the ropes, so worst case scenario if said high ranking incomer doesn’t like what he sees he rides pine, or packs it up.

This is Shakas time to shine, he’s COY and leading a likely top 10 team.
He brings who he wants, and whoever comes in plays by his rules
