5th year senior? they giving out doctors degrees in high school?? haha. I didn`t realize that we had three 6`10 guys coming in next year. Add that to already 6`9 Thompson, 7`0 Zeller, and 6`10 Davis. We should have the freaking tallest team and a deep one at center.

2 more MDAA than any other team in the country.

It's great to be a Tar Heel.

Ole Roy can recruit his tail off.

I'll be there. About time this McDonalds thing comes to Miami. Hall is headed to either Memphis , Baylor , Duke or Miami. Those are the final 4 teams he's listed as far as teams he's considering.

You mean "Wall" :)

add Kentucky to that list if Calipari takes the job there. Wall's been quoted saying he loves JC.

LOL ! woops. typo! yeah, that's what i meant. Yeah, i could see him being a player who would follow Calipari. We shall see what happens. I'm sure UM is on the bottom end of his list so i dont have my hopes set too high. Its nice to know a player of that caliber even considered UM lol

Wall's also made a visit to Kansas.

Kansas could potentially reel in John Wall AND Lance Stephenson, and already have Elijah Johnson and Thomas Robinson with signed letters of intent.

I think john henson is gonna be the man...UNC could of actually had 5 mcdonald all americans, leslie mcdonald is rated just as high as strickland and higher then the wear bros, yet he didnt make the team..Roy williams does a great job, finding great players threw out the country.. They already have verbals from 2 potential MAA next yr..

I just heard on ESPN radio that Wall might be turned off from going to Duke due to them getting Curry. Sounds like he wants to be the man on campus and Curry might interfere with that.

Well next year he would. Curry wont be able to play til 2010. Guess Wall wants to be big man on campus. If he really does have that attitude , then means Baylor or Miami have hope LOL. :pray:

I dont know if its true they had just brought it up on the radio, it could be all speculation

Wall is only going to be at school for one year and everyone knows that, seth curry has to sit out the year that john wall would be at school so i dont really think those two things have to do with each other.

Coach K doesn't have as much of an interest in Wall as he did because he realized Wall is a headcase

I really have no idea and could care less, I just saw people talking about it and I just only threw in what I heard, it all could be completely wrong.

Never understood how players could finish their senior year of basketball and still be undecided.

Anyone remember that last very late sign that didn't underachieve?

I saw a little bit of the slam dunk contest what I saw wasn`t that amazing could have missed the good ones. Does anyone know if any of Carolina`s future players were involved in any of the festivities?

Nick Calathes (if he has enough brains to stay in college) and Kenny Boynton will be a nasty backcourt next season.

I can't wait to see Xavier Henry with all of the hype surrounding and now with all the controversy about where he will end up.

Kenny Boynton is nasty. Can't wait for Brandon Knight's decision for next year. But Boynton-Knight games were awesome. Should be fun seeing Kenny on ESPN

Yes. But he didn't hire an agent. As long as he doesn't hire an agent, the option to return to college is still open. And with someone with the lack of lateral speed as Calathes probably won't be NBA-bound after just his sophomore season.

oh i agree with u and i knew he didnt hire an agent. I just didnt know if he had declared already and stuff. I think its kinda dumb how a player can actually declare and then return to the college game. either go or stay.

I'll probably watch a little bit of the game, I'm not too interested in it this year because Georgetown doesn't have any commits in the game

If he was going to go to St. Johns, he probably would have done it when he was at MSG.

Sorry Johnnie fans, but I think KU is the spot he'll end up...

Not a bad game overall, kind of what you expect from these all-star games. Cousins looks like a man among boys, Henson needs to bulk up..big time, and I liked the little PG going to Oklahoma.
