We don't have the established fan bases they do, but I think it would show it might take the end of these season but there would be some empty seats if they had a losing record.

Winning games is the icing on the cake though.

The LSU game was a great start. I hope it doesn't get anywhere near as bad as the last season under Horn, when Kentucky pretty much created a home game at CLA. You could count the Gamecock fans there one hand.
Not that many teams have that kind of tradition. The fans here don't care enough about basketball because they don't have any reason to. Success of the football and baseball programs has has taken over and occupying their attention. Winning comes before packed stadiums. The fans will only show up for a team they can believe in. Not enough believe in them right now. They have to see results BEFORE they will believe. Otherwise they are going to spend their nights and weekends doing something else they'd rather do.

He is impressive, some of the air he gets on those dunks reminds me a lot of a guy named Michael Jordan.

That's kind of the problem. If they want to see results, they have to show up. Woods and Dozier want to see support from the fans right now, not when they sign. You can't convince big recruits to come to your school while sitting in an empty arena.

I sure hope we really pursue this guy. Or else UNC is going to take him away. He has all the makings of an All-Star NBA player. I just hope he isn't so good when he is a senior that he skips college all together and goes to the NBA. (Lebron James)

The NBA doesn't accept kids right out of high school any more; they have to play at least one year in college first or they can theoretically sit out or play overseas.

They changed the rules back in 2006. Now a player has to be 19 to enter the NBA draft.

Here's what the rule says: "All drafted players must be at least 19 years old during the calendar year of the draft. To determine whether a player is eligible for a given year's draft, subtract 19 from the year of the draft. If the player was born during or before that year, he is eligible."

Thanks, I had no idea they changed. There are so many rules now when it comes to recruiting for all sports, some of them sneak up on me.

Saw him play last night. He is fast, handles the ball well and and has a nice jumper. Legit player! Reminds me a bit of the Curry bros.
