Damn, how is Wright not getting off the bench in TORONTO?!

Likely he failed a grandstand windmill dunk in practice.

Poor Juju. He was one of the most entertaining Jayhawks of the last decade. I can't help but wonder how different his NBA career would be if he had had at least one more year of development and maturation in Lawrence. I hope the Morii consult him before deciding about what they want to do next year, as I bet he's not having much fun.

I don't think that the twins are even near as raw as Julian was when he jumped. That was one of those "potential" picks that I never really understood. It is more like the mock drafts that have Selby as a first rounder. In reality Wright was somewhere in between the polish that the Morris twins have shown and the raw talent Selby has displayed (if you can even call it that with Josh).

I don't want anyone thinking that I am trying to bash Josh. He is a freshman that had way to much hype (they all do). He also had an incredibly trying year with suspension, injury, and personal tragedy that could have held up anyones development. I still can't believe that NBA teams would even be considering him. Most probably aren't and it is just mock draft guys either being lazy and forgetting to take him off their board or the same misplaced hype continuing to hinder such a young kid.

Arthur is making the most of that extra PT.

I love that DBlock is maintaining an NBA career.
