Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

He Gone

Jordan Bell announced this morning he's going pro, signing with an agent like Tyler Dorsey and Dillon Brooks before him.

All three should have taken a cue from Buddy Hield and CJ McCollum, both of whom played four in college and had it pay off.

Bell, the best of the three Oregon players who led the Ducks to the Final Four this season, doesn't have an NBA 15' shot.

Brooks doesn't have small forward handles in the realm of Justin or Josh Jackson, expected NBA early draftees.

Dorsey lacks NBA strength and natural jumping ability, and though he got better at finishing at the rim late in the season and his shot started falling regularly he's rough, and I expect NBA players to stuff him often.

Dorsey has dual citizenship (Greece).  Could make a team there and be a hero.

Oregon's big three went for the money that may not even be there after things settle.

I think they're all a little naive or simply don't care about college any more. Could have been another great team next year.

Meanwhile Kentucky has its usual array of 5-star NBA-ready guys coming in.
