    Re: Blair hires representation

    I can't imagine his stock getting higher. He doesn't have ideal size. If he stays anohter year, they'll find other things to critique about him.

    I just didn't expect him to hire representation so quickly after declaring on Monday. I definately don't have a problem with him striking while the iron is hot..

    Count me into the group of people who will be surprised if he amounts to anything in the NBA.

    I don't see where a 6'7", 260 pound C/PF can be effective at.

    I think Charles Barkley had a pretty nice career and that sounds pretty close to his size, so who knows?

    Barkley was way more athletic and not quite as thick during his prime

    Re: Blair hires representation

    Blake Griffin's game reminds me of Barkley more than Blair's does.

    Re: Blair hires representation

    All the so called experts say this is a pretty weak class for the draft ... I would assume that is why Blair went ahead and got representation so quickly. He is going to go higher in the draft this year then if he would had stayed in college another year.

    I normally don't like Stephen A. Smith, but he made a good point by comparing Blair to Glen Davis and how Davis went to the final four one year and could have gone first round but he came back to school and ended up going in the second round. Blair is basically the same type of player.

    Re: Blair hires representation

    I think its a good move for him. He will most likely get drafted in the teens and if he would have come back it wouldn't have been great numbers for him I think because Young and Fields are both gone so he would have been the focus

    We don't need refs, but I guess white guys need something to do. -Charles Barkley-
