The fact that Grant Hill stuck around for 4 years still amazes me. The guy was essentially Lebron before Lebron. His second year in the league, he put up 20.2 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game. Absolutely ridiculous talent until his ankle injuries. The top 3 in that 1994 draft was pretty special, with Glenn Robinson, Jason Kidd, and Hill going 1-2-3. What also stands out there is that only 8 out of 27 picks in the first round that year were NOT college seniors. Compare that to the 2013 draft where only 3 of 30 picks WERE seniors. Crazy how the draft has changed in 20 years.

How does the kid look close up?
I was at the game last night and will be at the finals as well. Jabari is a big strong kid and seems like more of a man among boys. He got off to a slow start but had a nice game overall. He really got involved on the defensive end and as a result the whole team seemed to play better defense.
He moves like Lebron and there will be comparisons as he gets bigger and stronger. Not that he will be as good but more that he is built like him and runs the floor like him. When he rises up to shoot over people he reminds me a lot of 'Melo. It will be fun watching him grow up.

Cook and Thornton have both been really unimpressive lately, particularly with their decision-making. You really want more stability from your upperclassmen. Beyond that, the lack of a true post player is a major issue since apparently Marshall Plumlee is incapable of even getting on the court right now. Cook really needs to settle his game down, and Sulaimon needs to stop doing his Maverick-after-Goose-dies impersonation and get back in the game.

Don't deserve to win going 4-11 at the foul line and giving up 21 offensive rebounds. UAB couldn't hit anything in the 2nd half but kept getting 2nd and 3rd chances. James Michael McAdoo is playing himself into the D League or Europe.
