This time of year for college basketball flat out sucks. All of the highly recruited college freshmen declare for the draft, leaving us thinking of what could have been even if they would stay just ONE more year. My boy, Brandon Wright just announced that he is jumping ship. Guess he did not learn from Marvin Williams.

Actually, it worked out perfect for Williams. No chance he would have improved his status. The Hawks took him over some nice players.

MSwerb is just a bitter UNC fan
He'll get over it.
Wright will be a lottery pick and rightfully so.

Yeah, Brandan Wright seems like a pretty safe bet to go #3 after Oden and Durant.

Dude reminds me exactly of Chris Bosh.

Exactly like Chris Bosh? Settle down Rich.
Wright has no shot outside of the paint yet has great upside.
Bosh had a pretty good all around game at GT.

MSwerb(UNC fan) is pissed he is leaving and RSwerb(Puke fan) is pumped. I'm glad he's leaving also.

The stats are pretty close to identical. Bosh went for 15 and 9 for his one season at Ga Tech. Wright went for 15 and 6 last year. I don't remember Bosh's jumper being developed until a couple years ago.

My money says Wright is the guy that goes #3. We all know whos going 1 and 2.

Bosh actually shot more from the outside at Tech. That was the problem I had with him when he was there. He shot too many 3's(for a guy his size) rather than going in the paint.
He is a stud though now.
Screw Carolina.

Bosh has funny hair and Dook still blows. I personally think that my boy is not ready. He has no game outside of 6 feet, his foul shots scare me, and he weighs about 100 pounds.

Then why do you care so much he's leaving?
You love him.

I do, boy has mad inside game and adds huge depth to an already sick rotation. I hate it when my boys leave early, but almost every couple of years we lose some key players. I used to LOVE pro hoops, but now I somewhat follow it. I do pay attention to the Cavs, but mainly I follow the Tarheels in the league. You know that.
