From Georgia Tech...after basketball, his dream is to become a rodeo clown...JARRETT JACK!
I can't believe what the New York Knicks did. I am stunned. Look...Iman Shumpert...if you want to take him at the end of the first round or early in the second round, that's fine. He's a McDonald's All-American, he's got a great lookin' body, and maybe he'll put it all together. He has no position. He didn't play point at Georgia Tech and in the backcourt at Georgia Tech, they led the world in turnovers two years ago and last year as well. Uh, two years ago, he played with a couple pros and they finished below 500 in ACC play. This year it was his team. They did nothing. His coach was eventually fired with 7 years remaining on his contract. Um, he's not a good shooter, he doesn't have a position. I know they want to get better defensively but if they want to get better defensively Chris Singleton was there Kenny Faried. This, to me, is a laughable pick.
Best job available now is Georgia Tech. In time, Tech can compete with anyone.
Georgia Tech isn't as wonderful a job as it is made out to be in a city that is a pro sports town. The Yellow Jackets may have a hard time finding someone to come for a lower price, which is what they may have to offer after paying millions to buy out Paul Hewitt. I'm not buying the Tubby Smith to Georgia Tech chatter at all. Smith has been quoted in local media reports that he's staying put in Minneapolis. I wouldn't be surprised if Georgia Tech does what Clemson did in hiring Wright State's Brad Brownell: hire a quality head coach who isn't as well-known.
As for Hewitt, he had the St. John's job last year if he wanted it. Now he's out at Georgia Tech. Considering the buyout he's likely to receive, at least he won't have to work.
But as boisterous as his arrival in New Jersey has been, Mr. Morrow's journey to this stage in his career has been anything but. After being named "Mr. Basketball" in North Carolina in 2004, he struggled to distinguish himself in four seasons at Georgia Tech. "I saw him a couple times in college and he didn't really light it up," said Mr. Kerr, who was the general manager of the Phoenix Suns when Morrow was preparing for the 2008 NBA Draft. "He got a little lost on his team. It just didn't seem like he really blossomed there. Then he got lost in the shuffle as far as the scouts are concerned."
To you critics: when athletes say some of the things you say, then you condemn them as quitters. Are you quitting?
Their effort and level of commitment should never be questioned....
We realize we still have work to do but no one should ever question the effort, intelligence, or dedication of our program...
Our team deserves to be treated truthfully. This young basketball team is on the verge of earning an NCAA berth.
