The league wide and media consensus was Fultz was a better prospect than Lonzo. He was labeled the clear best player in the draft class for his entire freshman season. Only someone who didn't follow a second of college or the NBA draft would be unfamiliar with him.

eastside_purple is infamous around these parts
Fultz totally flew under the radar as the #1 pick of the draft.

Our good friend LeVar Ball has decided he's going to start a basketball league of high school graduates who don't want to go to college for one year. He would pay players between $3,000 and $10,000 per month to play, presumably from Big Baller Brand Company that Ball owns.

This guy is a real treat. It's like he's 21 years old and has no understanding of anything big picture. The reason the college model works, is that it allows kids to use their athletic abilities to pay for some if not all of college expenses. THAT'S the reward. Most of these kids are not going to play professional basketball. Of the ones that can, only a few of those will make enough money to take care of themselves, let alone a family.

Ball misses the boat in so many places. It's well known that only a few schools make alot of money. Remember, the NCAA has to look out for ALL member institutions, not just 15 or 20.

If some of our major athletes really want to tackle oppression and social injustice. Please begin talking to these kids going to college to take full advantage of their great opportunity to a college degree and making a better life for themselves. Stop pointing at .02% of situations that come up that support your cause, tackle the bigger problem.

Pretty good lineup of NBA games for Christmas Day, all 5 games were good games, went right to the end. Quick change over the last week. The Rockets may have been tabbed as the best team in the NBA a week ago, and now have 3 losses in a row.

Can't teach an old dog new tricks, our old friend Dennis Rodman is back in the news....He's checked himself into an alcohol treatment center again after a recent DUI charge.

I'll be honest, after Rodman retired from the NBA in 2000, I said then he'd be dead in 10 years from the lifestyle he chose to live. I'm really surprised he's still alive, or not in prison. Let's hope at some point he can get his life in order.
