Stephenson undecided

Advertisement

Lance Stephenson, the New York high school basketball standout who was recruited by Kansas University until the Jayhawks landed Xavier Henry, still hasn’t chosen a school.

Stephenson, a 6-foot-5 wing from Lincoln High in Brooklyn, N.Y., tells Zagsblog.net he has a final four of Arizona, Florida, Memphis and Maryland.

I have to agree, this is a pretty worthless article.

Tell us when he HAS decided and I'll be slightly more interested.

Surprise, surprise. He should just go ahead and announce that he's going to Europe. Apparently, schools are becoming very wary of him and don't want to assume the risk.

New Report Just In: The Chiefs haven't decided on their starting right tackle; the Royals haven't decided on their starting catcher for tonight; Coach Self doesn't know yet who will start at the 4 spot; and Missouri doesn't know whether it is a softball school, or a wrestling school.

Word is Missouri is cutting all sports and going to cosmetology. The athletic director and Dean took such a liking to Chase Daniels' eyebrows and eyeliner last season they're scrapping all mens athletics and starting the world's largest facial studio.

Lance should just go to a small school, stay out of trouble, and jump to the NBA after one year of dominating a weak league.

He's trouble.

It is at least a little intriguing to me. Memphis losses X, so Josh P makes a move for Lance, only they are now under investigation so that's not nearly as attractive a place as it once was - in a ghetto sort of way.

It is also sort of interesting in light of the bigger questions of the Memphis' investigation, eligibilities/testings, Jennings playing in Europe last year (?), Wall, etc. waiting to declare (Is he eligible?), etc, etc and the bigger question of recruiting in the future. Certainly glad that we have a solid program with solid recruiters/coaching staff.

Somewhat along those lines, did you hear that mizzoo's prime FB recruit for next year (DL?) is now at a JC in CA? But he has promised to return to the motherland after a couple years of learning to read, write, add AND subtract.

But the real question is, how is our team doing? What are they doing? How many days until UNCo?

To the casual fan, I can see how Lance-updates may not be interesting - but, for the rest of us, we know that if Cal hadn't bolted for UK leading to X coming to KU, Lance would have been our prize recruit in this class. I, for one, am interested to know (but likely will never find out) what really happened...(a) did KU pull his offer? and when, relative to X's offer? (b) if his offer stayed on the table, did he balk at coming to a team where he wouldn't have been "the guy" as he was in NYC for the past four years? Maybe Gary Bedore can do some sleuthing on this for us (at least on the KU perspective).

This is horribly off topic, but...

Which NBA Star would you put on your team first?

Wilt 'The Stilt' Chamberlain or Michael Jordan?

I say Wilt over MJ

jaybate 10 years, 7 months ago

EnviroHawk7,

I would have both, of course.

EnviroHawk7 10 years, 7 months ago

I mean which would you choose first, almost as if it was a draft.

Timmay97 10 years, 7 months ago

EnviroHawk,

It depends on the era. I seriously don't think Wilt would have been NEARLY as dominant during the early 90's when Jordan was at his prime. The play was more physical and there were much better big men.

Therefore, I think it's a tough question to answer because it depends on what era they are playing in.

Personally, I still would take Jordan in either case.....he was THAT good.

Joel Hood 10 years, 7 months ago

It is very difficult to compare generations. If you gave Wilt the training environment that exists today, who knows how good he would be today.

keith horinek 10 years, 7 months ago

MJ wasis the best BB player in modern times, hands down. Perhaps in a few years he may be replaced by a Dwaine Wade or (God forbid) Koby Bryant, etc. But for now MJ has been the best, (in my opinion).

I'm sure KU would be happy to donate a facial to MU next year.
