    ok? this was 1995...it was unheard of for a high schooler to declare for the draft this time
    after '95, Kobe Bryant followed and increased the trend of high schoolers declaring for the draft

    of course it was risky back then, it was rare

    Yea he was. People with sense know he was a risk in 1995. But you know these NT knew that he would be great (even though some of them weren'teven walking in 1995) [​IMG]

    Nah I was strong in my thoughts that he was a risk. What makes this funny is the other stuff he said. But Isiah does have that Chi town mouth,

    Its easy to joke now 13 years later, but this guy knows talent when he sees it he drafts well above average.

    High school players at that time were a HUGE risk.

    LOL @ Shawn Respert talking about NBA busts...you don't say huh? If you would of told me 15 years agothat Eric Snow would have a longer more succesful career than Shawn Respert, I would of laughed at you. But fate and destiny had something else to say.

    clearly, you have no idea what you talking about...Respert had stomach cancer when he was drafted but didn't tell anybody about it, he actually playedthrough with his condition. He didn't admitted his stomach cancer until 2005 because 'he didn't want it to be an excuse'.

    Respert gets my respect, all day.

    Read the underlined and red bolded phrase. I take back the LOL part though. But what I saidstill stands, NOBODY would of guessed that it would be Eric Snow that would have the longer career in the league. Hold up, I wonder how many of y'allactually saw MSU play when Respert and Snow was there. If you would have, then you would know exactly what I'm saying.
