Yes he did. He’s a great example of a guy with unbelievable talent who never became the complete player he could have been.

Seems being coachable is a skill.

It's conceivable 3 BEast players will be taken in the lottery.  I'm very unsure about Carter as a pro but the scouts really like him.  Tyko going to a formidable team is ideal.

lol. He was named one of the top 75 players in league history.

You should have quit this silly argument long ago. You could have simply moved on like it never really happened. Yet here you are digging your hole deeper and deeper.

He's nearly a lock to be a first-ballot hall of famer, but a few more years at Syracuse and he'd really have made it in the world.

Think about all the zone defensive concepts he could have been taught. Smh.

Yeah, instead he had to play under that know-nothing  George Karl.

Reed Sheppard averaged 8.5 points, 4 assists, 1.5 rebounds, 2 steals, 0 blocks, and 2 turnovers in 2 postseason games (loss to TAMU in SEC quarterfinals, loss in first round to Oakland).

Really goes to show those NBA teams are locked in on your postseason performance as Reed is now projected to be picked...*checks notes*...3rd overall in this year's NBA Draft.

a strong post-season can artificially elevate a player's draft stock (call it the Joe Alexander factor) but a mediocre showing won't really negatively impact a player's draft position (e.g. Jason Richardson).

I go back further to the  “Jack Givens” factor …….

Why in the world in the 1st round of the draft Wednesday and the 2nd rd Thursday afternoon?  Bizarre.

So it doesn’t conflict with the Presidential debate I would guess.

That, and the second round has never garnered much attention late at night. Might actually draw more eyes or media interest in the afternoon. In any event, round 2 is not much to talk about.

The Athletic's John Hollinger doesn't do a mock draft, but he has a "big board" of rankings. In his final pre-draft top 75, he has ...

++ Oso ranked #19, first player mentioned in the "Sleepers" category.

++ TK ranked #36, listed in the "Second-Rounders Who May Make It" category.

Latest from The Athletic:

Kolek #22 to the Suns, then traded to the Knicks.
The Knicks have been interested in Kolek throughout the season, league sources tell The Athletic, and it makes sense why. Even with the emergence of Miles McBride as a tremendous backup guard on a bargain deal, the Knicks were often one shot creator short in the playoffs and forced to rely on Jalen Brunson to do everything at all times. In Kolek, the team could envision a long-term backup point guard who might be able to reduce the wear and tear on Brunson.

Oso #46 to the Clips.

Given how many of us have compared Kolek to Brunson, that makes a ton of sense.

It's one observer's opinion. If you choose to be concerned by it, that's up to you.

Kolek will not get past the Knicks or Celtics in the first round.

Agreed.

And no one will be watching the 2nd Rd on Thursday.  For the kids that are borderline late 1st/early 2nd this is a terrible decision by the NBA.

Yeah, don’t think many bothered with the late night 2nd round picks in past years?

Exactly. When the talking heads are still mostly talking about the first round anyway.

Feel a bit bad for Oso, I'm sure he was ready to move on but falling to late second round when you still have eligibility is rough. Wonder what the opportune cost will end up being.
