    Brackins looks at how predecessors fared in NBA draft

    ISU men's basketball: Brackins looks at how predecessors fared in NBA draft | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    Not sure if this is reassuring in any way. I do like how Brackins mentions a few times that previous players in the Big 12 left early because they had noting left to accomplish (he obviously can accomplish a lot by coming back next year). Also like the comment by Self on how players leaving early helps recruiting.

    He will make the best decision for him and his family. The kid has a good head on his shoulders

    Re: Brackins looks at how predecessors fared in NBA draft

    What I like is that Craig is obviously a thoughtful person, he likes it here, and he has fun with his teammates.

    What I don't like is that we probably aren't going to know for sure, one way or another, until June 15th.

    I've always thought so from hearing him talk and hearing from people who have talked directly to him. We all want him to stay and help our program, but more than anything we want him to make an informed decision and do what's best for Craig Brackins. I think he is smart enough and has smart enough people surrounding him (McD and staff) that he will make the right decision.

    Hopefully he doesn't get advice from the same people that Stinson and Blalock got theirs from.

    haha they didn't need advice, they knew McD was going to run the program into the ground...

    Re: Brackins looks at how predecessors fared in NBA draft

    Craig will make the right decision. One of Craig's good friends has been a teammate of mine the last 3 years. The one thing he tells Craig is why not be the best player in your conference. Your stock is going to go into the top 10...(with consistancy...not 10 and then a projection of late first to mid secoond)...Craig also understands that not only is help on the way, but how much he means to the success of this program. Craig is someone who truely loves Iowa State. It is nice to have players like that.

    Re: Brackins looks at how predecessors fared in NBA draft

    It kind of sounds like he would like to come back and be player of the year in the Big XII, which he certainly could be, and maybe accomplish something at ISU. But, I wouldn't blame him for leaving if he is assured a top 10 pick in the upcoming draft.
