    Does not sound like great preparation for NBA.

    Sounds like lazy ball with that much talent.

    Sounds like redshirt year at Findlay before MWC with no study work from tutors.

    "I like the style of offense, getting up and down the floor and scoring"

    UNLV ranks in the lower half of all NCAA teams in offense. Was Vaughn mistaking UNLV for Kansas or Iowa state? Best sentence of that article haha

    a part of me hopes UNLV only wins 12-13 games next season

    A 2012-2013 UK type of season would be cool with me.

Seems to me he wanted he didn't really want to play college ball so he took the easy way out, or Dave Rice is so good at recruiting that the kids he goes after are convinced of such without questioning what he says. The way Dave Rice coaches will have UNLV in the NIT next season.

    Reminds me somewhat of the UCLA team that we dismantled in the tournament. Tons of talent with very little idea of how to use it effectively.

    I think he is just enjoying the Vegas limelight and bball comes with it.

    Re: Great article from Vegas on UNLV basketball

    It sounds even shadier than the days when Tark was there.

    They have the 3 top 50 players plus some good players returning, but San Diego State and New Mexico should still be good next year too, plus they will have veteran teams returning. I don't think UNLV will run away with the Mountain West easily, plus they play a pretty tough non-conference next year, which may not help the new players gel. It will be interesting to watch.

    Re: Great article from Vegas on UNLV basketball

    They suck plain and simple and will continue to suck because their coach sucks. I will take great pleasure in watching them limp into the NIT this year and next. This is not sour grapes, this is the truth. The Vaughn camp could have at least spend more time to come up with something more believable than "pro style offense" because that's the biggest joke imaginable.

    Re: Great article from Vegas on UNLV basketball

    UNLV is just selling Vegas to one-and-dones. "Hey, come spend your only year of college before you enter the draft here and we'll make sure you get what ever dirty pleasure that Vegas can offer that you want. Not only will we turn the other cheek, but we'll make sure you get it." Only thing that makes sense to me besides blatant NCAA violations. My only question is how does a kid spin the UNLV commitment into "this is what my FAMILY decided was best"?? That kinda reeks of payments.

    Time to move on guys. His time in the limelight ended the moment he chose UNLV. Let it die.

    Agreed. Keep in mind, he chose UNLV not just over Iowa State, but also over UNC, KU and Kentucky. I'm not sure how many recruits on the planet would make a choice like that if they were only basing the decision on basketball-related criteria. Let it go.

    Pro Style Offense? That is George Mikan pro style.
