un po' di cose trovate su draftexpress
Although it’s never too smart to put much stock into the first comments made by underclassmen about their future immediately after seeing their season ended, it’s still interesting regardless to hear what they have to say. While there is some good news from Holiday’s end, it looks like he is going to seriously look at the possibility of entering the draft.
According to Brian Dohn of the Daily Breeze:
"Right now, I'm leaning toward coming back here, most definitely," Holiday said. "I want to finish what we started off. We have a great freshman class coming in and I love these guys. They're my brothers now. I don't want to leave the freshmen that are here now. We have a great bond, a great chemistry. It's going to be good next year.
However, Holiday admitted his mind could change once research of his draft status begins.
"There's certain things that if I hear, and they're good deals and all that," Holiday said, "some stuff you just can't back down from." I'm saying I'm coming back because I really haven't [thought] about it," he said. "I'm telling you I really don't know. I actually have no clue because my season just ended."
The most recent scuttlebutt we’ve heard from NBA scouts and agents is that Holiday is very interested in entering the draft. Thing is, his stock can’t be anywhere near what it was a few months ago, and thus he’s one of those players who really does need to strongly consider returning to school. And that’s ignoring the fact that he’s a long ways away from contributing.
This one is really unbelievable, making me wonder a bit about the context of Gordon’s comments. If he really intended it to come out like this, then the kid has some nerve…
Mark Saxon of the Orange County Register:
Freshman forward Drew Gordon said Howland should reconsider his offensive approach to suit the talents of his team. Gordon said he would like to see UCLA turn into an "up-and-down" team along the lines of the Villanova squad that pounded out an 89-69 victory in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday.
"In all honesty, I think he's going to have to change a couple of things," Gordon said. "I think the mentality of the team next year is we don't work well in the half-court set. We're used to the run-and-gun. We're not programmed into slow-grinding it out there."
Wow…Gordon must not have done much research about Ben Howland before he committed to UCLA.
