I believe him when he says he is well connected in the world of college basketball. He is a smart guy and knows basketball a lot better than I do- that's for sure. I don't doubt that people have passed him that word if he said they did.I have the same question.
Does it matter?Remember when some people on this board thought he would be a bench player for Duke?
He would instantly be a very famous player if he was drafted in the 3rd round.Does it matter?
He will likely be drafted second or third round and not make an NBA roster. It's fine though, because he probably made more going to Duke than he will for his first couple years in the NBA G league.
I will also congratulate him for playing a year and a third in college ball.
It was mainly one person who was obnoxiously vocal about it.
A poor man's Kris Humphries...I think he could sneak into the end of the first round. He can shoot and he is 6'9. He is mobile.
1st Team All ACC and most improved player in the ACC suggests he is willing to work and can get better. NBA draft is a lot on potential and I think can get better. His 18 ppg led the ACC.
That sure did not work out for Hurt by playing for Duke. Just an average team, at one time the Gophers had a better team before the injury bug hit. Oh well, not feeling bad for Hurt one bit.You think he would give up K, Duke, winning, maybe a final 4 to play here. Would love it if that happened.
He was a toxic slime ball on the OTB. Came back recently as "minigopher", and was banned after less than a week I believe.Lol I didn't even notice that. I don't remember what they would have done to get banned, I just remember like 100 posts from them about Matthew Hurt not being very good.
Easy. They both were consumed with themselves. They both put an "I" in team. They both will be in the NBA. Hurt will need to have an NBA vet (like Humphries had Dirk) who shows them that you don't stick in the league if you don't dedicate yourself to the craft. Humphries stayed in the league because he figured out his niche and honed those skills. Hurt will need to do the same thing. Otherwise, Hurt is out of the league in a few years at best.What on earth is similar about Hurt and Humphries? Hurt made more 3s this season than Humphries did in his NBA career. You’re honestly delusional if you think they are at all similar.
Yeah, 18.3 points, 6.2 rebounds on 56% from the field and 44% from 3 in the ACC is terrible.
