    I really hope he makes it. He deserves it. If hard work alone was enough he would be a shoe in.

    Melvin will be a huge success. If not in basketball, in something else. But I hope he gets his shot in basketball because I'd like to see him play again.

    Re: Melvin Ejim: "Treat this ball like your girlfriend."

    It is noteworthy to hear about how hard Ejim has worked to get ready for the NBA. It would be so great for him to get drafted in the first round and make it onto a roster.

    Re: Melvin Ejim: "Treat this ball like your girlfriend."

    I'm not sure how well the analogy "works" in that context, but watching the clip, I thought of something entirely different: Ejim could discuss how to make a sandwich, and I'd be willing to listen.

    What the hell? Apparently making a comment that is demeaning to basketballs is against the rules? Where'd my post go?!

    This post has been a cluster of off-color jokes about Ejim's analogy. In the same way that bashing recruits isn't good for the university, neither is mocking players. We had enough reports on the entire thread that we had to be stricter than normal.

    We're damned if we do, damned if we don't on deleting posts.

    I really hope he makes an NBA squad. Seems like a great kid and a great competitor. Best of luck to him and hoping to hear his name in the draft tomorrow night.

    I don't know who took any of that as mocking Ejim, but that is being WAY oversensitive.
