I've swung back and forth on this, but the bottom line is still the same. If Penny says yes, I'm all in on it.

true... but if anyone can judge the risk/reward of adding the Lawsons it's Penny... no one knows them better.

if he wants them, then great!

Totally agree!

Lawson articles from the past - I know, I know, they are older articles, but these cats can play...

From ESPN's Myron Medcalf -

"Meet the new first family of college basketball"

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basket...basketball

From our very own Gary Parrish -

"Dear America- Meet the Lawson Brothers From Memphis"

To the rest of the world, the Lawsons look awesome. For Memphis to be holding grudges because of something that essentially rests on the shoulders of Bowen and Tubby, along with Bam Poo and Saul....., welp that just ain't right.

Besides which, the former Tiger Lawsons were greatly needed in every game---one was our best player. This situation is entirely different.

Our team is on the floor, less one. Might as well root for them. I trust Penny knows better what he wants than anyone else.

You'll see! Those Lawsons can PLAY!

I don't know about their skillset...

But one thing both KJ and Dedric had in them...They had some dog in 'em...They would go after it. I would hope both of these kids are the same.

But this whole Zoom call with Creighton just seems similar to the powerplay they made on Paster with Daddy "Interviewing" with other teams.

How dare he do what any parent and just about every recruit AND coach does!! The horror!!

I agree. They're just kids.

I wish either of them was as good as Dedric. He was a rebounding machine.

But the players don't come over to your house after the game.

Had Dedric played 4 years for us, I think he would have ended up the 2nd all time leading scorer and rebounder in Memphis history.

How about a parent that doesn't coach from anywhere and let's the actual coaches...you know...coach.

If the Lawson's don't get what the parents feel as adequate minutes/touches/stats, this could turn south, real fast. Again.

There always has been and always will be parents who do that...now social media feeds the flames. But the coach just has to deal with it accordingly.

RE: Chandler And Jonathan Lawson Commit To Memphis
I gained a new measure of respect for KJ in the article Mark Giannotto wrote. I thought he came across as having matured a lot, very honest and humble. And a rooter of Penny and the Tigers. It was a pleasure to read that. I never thought we'd see the day where another pair of Lawson's would stripe up, but it's cool if everyone is on the same page and fighting for the same thing. Pretty refreshing.

same thing I felt come through. KJ has matured more in a short span of time than many 'adults' probably ever will. lol
