    Marty is voice of reason.

    He's defending Lucca to Ken Miller. Never thought I'd see the day.

    Lucca hasn't done much yet. Injuries or not, that's the reality.

    If I had my knee scoped, I'd be moving around the house pretty slowly for months, let alone weeks, Drive4cy.

    Re: Marty is voice of reason.

    Well yeah, calling the guy a bust is a bit strong on December 4th of his first full season. I'm surprised we beat a team like UNI in their arena with Lucca not contributing much. It's encouraging.

    No, the reality is that people were over hyping him WAY too much. He is still a freshman and still adjusting to basketball in America. Add that in with the injuries and I know I didn't expect very much from him.

    Its going to take time for him to adjust and get back 100% healthy.

    It's a topic of discussion, both guys made good points... Nothing bad there...

    Exactly! It seems that people have forgotten that he had his knee scoped not to long ago. It takes a while to get back into the swing of things.

    Yes...Lucca is a bust 6 games into the season. And about a month into knee surgery. Shock jock sports radio at its finest.

    It's been over a month, in most (not all) cases he should be pretty close to 100%.

    I also agree that the comment had more to do with the hype than Lucca's performance...

    But aren't you the guy who says Lucca flosses with piano wire, washes his hair with sulfuric acid, and gargles with diesel?

    I bet at the very least, he could throw a football over them mountains over there.

    If Mac says that Lucca is no where near healthy/100%, I'll give the kid the benefit of the doubt.

    Lucca will be one of our best role players.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Lucca hasn't got into the flow of the game yet. Nor is he 100%. Lets give him time.
