    Watch Brackins at NBA Combine

    ESPN3 is streaming a show covering the NBA Combine. They were just talking about Craig.

    Streaming Online - ESPN3

    It's also on ESPNU if you have that.

    Are there still people who think he won't be drafted? Please don't be shy, show your basketball stupidity.

    I think it is just a matter of where right now......1st round or 2nd. The announcers on the show were pretty complimentary of him. Hope his combine goes well.

    Is Gilstrap there too? Does anyone know?

    I don't think Gilstrap is there. They already did the SF and I didn't see him.

    Ok. Just wondered, because I saw that the NBADraft.net thing had ranked as the 54th overall prospect, and rising now. Brackins was listed as 31st overall, and falling, which was surprising. WJ is listed as 3rd overall.

    Re: Watch Brackins at NBA Combine

    I know the money is better in the early part of the first round but if you were in Craigs spot wouldn't you rather go to a better team late in the first round. That is my thought anyway. He will eventually get paid for his performance.

    I still hope the Trailblazers draft him but they probably won't. Unfortunately, his position is not one they really need.

    Re: Watch Brackins at NBA Combine

    he will prob get hosed and go to the bulls
    don't get me wrong I'm a bulls fan but they are a mess


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    What impressed me beyond his basketball abilities was his character. He was a stand-up guy. He took the blame when it was his to take (and sometimes even when it wasn't). He always worked hard. Even in his last game, after fouling out, he wasn't moping with a towel over his head. He was cheering from the sideline and giving advice during the timeout. Knowing how to be a team player is a big part of being in the NBA. Just look at the guys who are still playing in the playoffs (in starting positions) who you wouldn't walk across the street to watch based on their own abilities. Brackins may not be the next LeBron, but he is definitely the kind of guy who could have a nice NBA career, maybe even longer than lots of the lottery pick flameouts.

    Who the heck is Aran Smith. Seriously? Dropping based on what? The fact that everyone else who has seen him at the combine thinks he is a steal in the 20 -30 range? Does this kid have any credentials?

    He will get drafted, who cares.... He will not be anything in the NBA. Do you bring this up every day to make yourself feel better or what? But I guess I have basketball stupidity so from now on I will check with you for basketball knowledge.

    You say this every chance you get, so I find our comments to gocubs ironic. I guess you're just making yourself feel better?
