That's disappointing, there aren't nearly enough fros in the NBA nowadays.
The world needs more high-top fades.
Any predictions from the hoops gurus around here? I admit that my basketball fandom stops abruptly after a guy's last year in college. I loved watching MS, and he'll always be one of my favorite Hoos. I really hope he gets drafted and makes it at the next level. I guess I'd have to start watching NBA games!
It's crazy how being 23-24 could possibly be an age concern. In most professions, 23-24 automatically qualifies you as a junior level employee.
I watched some of the NBA draft combine where they were working out the power forwards. They did a little segment on Scott and basically said everything we already knew about him - he's high IQ, did everything for UVA last year, plays within himself, has good outside game, not overly athletic. Scott's a bit of a refreshing contrast to the me-me-me athletes that litter the NBA.
Norris Cole had the right idea, Brandon Jennings took it to another level though, although he never got to the level of the guy from Kid N Play,

Mike's stock has been rising. He has performed well against higher "rated" talent in pre-draft workouts. Some say he has even given himself a chance to sneak into the back end of round one.
He is a classic tweener - and no matter how much Mike tries to hide it his ankle is not 100% - for these reasons I suspect he will drafted somewhere in the mid 2nd round.
We shall see. I sure hope the best for him.
ESPN's last mock, which I assume is their last, has him going 38th to Denver.
I dunno, he has long hair, we win a lot. We get in the NCAA, he cuts the hair, we lose. Seems clear cut, Needs to keep massive hair. See Sampson...
