I like, not love, Sully. However, he has been exposed here of late.

He is/was a good college player. But when I watch him, I don't know that he is a great college player. One reason he had a great frosh year was he was surrounded by shooters who made it hard to double the post.

I mean, the guy was two-time first team NCAA DI All-America. I don't even get that. When I watch him play, its hard for me to imagine he's one of the best 5 players in the country. Top 5???

I wish him well. He will make a lot of money in the NBA on his first contract. Not sure how many contracts he can have after that. Could be a journeyman by the time its over.

Guy's Kevin Love.

How do you not take Kevin Love 1st overall in this thing?

He's obviously a man among boys to some degree, but that will change in the NBA.

His best move just might be staying at OSU for all 4 years. He'd still get drafted after his senior year, probably be a smarter better player, and have a degree and possibly a real solid college game legacy, which is more than he will have after he is out of the NBA in 2017.

Of course money talks and that will never happen.

I'll destroy your old crippled carcass in basketball. I destroy anyone here, I bet e0y wouldn't even get a shot off without me swatting it like a fly.

Just don't make me dribble, that's not my strong suit.

And he was outmanned against Kansas. Twice. Soft.

Soon SC will be replacing "Mosgoved" with "Sullied".

BS! I may be old but I learned those gym rat moves that'll make me twice as effective as you. Plus I have height on my side so that will negate any advantage you might have over the others here.

I play dirty, 70's style b-ball so expect to get knocked down EVERYTIME you're in the lane. Good outside shooter, can play D, will attack the rim. The only thing missing from my 70's style game is the short shorts and being hopped up on blow.

So you have an afro and can do finger rolls from 12ft away?

Just got an email from OSU saying Deshaun Thomas is going to return to OSU for his junior season.

That helps a lot.

Hmmmm..... How much do you weight? I'm at 261 because of the winter fat I put on over the holidays. And I have a beard which gives me a clear edge. I got an ok baseline jumper and a wicked hook shot.

Hold on ballers.....I have slimmed down to 260-265 and sport a demonic goat....greying. I molded my game "old school"....think Wes Unseld. Uh-huh, yep...you don't come in the paint. My elevation is......Hollinesque these days.

My specialties include the "box-out", pick/screen, and 100 mph outlet passes.

270 but slimming down. No beard so I'm more aerodynamic.


Quick flick of the wrist hook or more long and looping like Chubs from Teen Wolf? I only ask because one gets swatted a few more rows furthur back than the other.

I never play hoops due to my inability to play it without hurting people.

Last time I played pick-up was in HS and I broke our all league center's fibula during hoops season because he got ahead of me on a fast break and speared him into the gym wall. He then went on a mission.

The next week I broke the starting PF's forearm on the same wall.

I then retired.

I know my strength's, playing hoops is not one of them, but understanding them is.

Maybe not, but that orange orb leaving those ham hocks you call hands will be like shooting fish in a barrell.

A thread about Sullinger has morphed into a 40-and-over, 250-and-over men's league trash talk session. Maybe because you guys relate to Sulley due to your girth and wonder why you never got drafted.
