    I'm on my phone so I cannot link the URL but Carmon at AllCyclones has a great article on Marcus Fizer and his time in Ames and the NBA.

    That knee injury really derailed what probably would have been a long nba career.

    I think Fizer's jersey needs to be hanging in Hilton!

    If he has his degree, I agree

    Re: In retrospect Marcus Fizer

    Wow, I had never heard about his parents' house burning down. I wonder if he really would have come back for his senior year had it not been for that. It's easy for him to say that now, but would have been much more difficult to actually turn down all that money as a 20 year old. Had he come back, we would have been a strong contender for a number 1 preseason ranking and obviously would have had just as good a chance as anyone to win the whole damn thing.

    Why? What happened when he was playing at ISU was something special. One of the greatest players of all times in the Big 12. He did so much for ISU.

    Re: In retrospect Marcus Fizer

    Interesting what a different take he has on his coaches than his most outspoken teammate. ISU basketball is fortunate he didn't transfer when Floyd left one year after bringing him here, then fortunate he stayed for his junior season after leading the Big 12 in scoring and it sounds like he'd have liked to play his senior year but if things were different.

    Signed with ISU when blue bloods were offering, didn't transfer when the coach who signed him skipped out to the NBA, didn't transfer after sophomore year when he lead the Big 12 in scoring and was a lock for a high to mid first round pick, doesn't trash his coaches and teammates in interviews, road a ten speed bike around campus...ok I just added that last one because I always loved seeing a dude that huge riding a bike around campus.

    Another way of looking at it...if you're against Ejim getting his jersey hung, and you're against Fizer getting his jersey hung...you need to lighten up and realize you'll never want another ISU jersey hung. No player of Fizer's skills is going to play 4 years now with the $ that is out there, it's incredible Fizer stayed 3 years.

    Outside of the debate over whether Georges has the talent/skillset/athleticism to get drafted after this coming year, I've heard from a very reliable source that his intentions are to jump in early if he feels he can get drafted. I know I'm not the only one to post this fact as well.

    Re: In retrospect Marcus Fizer

    It wasn’t until after the season was over that my parents called me and told me that their house — the house I grew up in — had burned down a couple months before. They had been living in a hotel in my hometown and never told me. There was an electrical fire with some wiring and the house was destroyed. They wanted me to focus on basketball and our season. Once they told me that I felt like I had to go to the NBA and made my decision that much faster. But I definitely would have come back for my senior year had that not have happened. Those guys went on to have a great season and I wish I could have been a part of that.”

    ​Wow, I never new about this.

    He has a son that's 16 and has been hearing from UNC? I think we would have an inside track on him if he turns out to be a stud.

    Let's see, Fizer still follows ISU, and played with Fred at Chicago. I hope his sons turn out like Marcus.
