And its Tarik Black whose the only NBAer in the bunch. Their fault, but Josh didn't help any.

Black is NOT a Tiger. Even though his degree is from UofM, he CHOSE to be introduced as from the University of Kansas in pregame introductions while he lasted in NBA.

The Great Tubby Smith coached Dedric one year. and he had another year of the legend Bill Self. Maybe they were good college players who were never gong to be NBA regulars?

Except for Nichols.... he never showed any consistency in college, KJ never rated like the others

Adonis was a undersized 4 who wanted to be a 3. Didn’t have the outside shot for it.

Not sure what the point is. Being a good college player doesn't always translate into a NBA career. Will Barton was one you missed. He didn't get drafted high but has had a good NBA career. The others had various flaws that kept them out of the NBA.

This. It just goes to show you that not all 5 stars are created equally. Some work harder than others and some have physical gifts that others do not.

That doesn't make the commentary fit the narrative.... :)

I don't put any blame on Josh for any of the named players except Joe. There is no doubt in my mind that Josh damaged Joe's chances and did not develop him. If Josh were a dog trainer, the dog would be running around biting everyone and killing other animals.

I agree, JJ was horribly mismanaged which significantly stunted his development, especially early on.

I'm not blaming anyone, like I said, its their own fault. Dedric was the biggest name of the bunch, but they all thought they were destined for the NBA. Will Barton, OTOH, worked his a$$ off every where he went and made it. Sorry I mentioned Josh, but he recruited them all and his recruiting classes were highly rated and none of us would have bet that, of the OP players mentioned, Black would be the only one to play a minute in the NBA.

Just comparing those guys to our current #1 class. I've been saying it all along, you just don't know how good they are until they hit the court. It would be really hard for Wiseman not to live up to expectations, but the rest, we'll know in November.

the team was improving at the end of the year last season...you could see it.
They gave Houston everything they wanted in the AAC tourney.
The improvement also showed up in the KenPom ratings.
Memphis was 59 last year...after being 161 under Tubby the year before.

I have no doubts the staff will be able to coach those young men up next season.
