    I'd like to see what the actual height of these guys. Brackins sure doesn't look 6 ft 10 to me.

    Ya...ive stood next to all 3, played pickup with Marcus and aside from Will.....they dont seem their heights and im 6'2". Comparatively ive shot around with Raef Lafrentz...and hes much taller than Brackins. But Will i think is the closest to his actual height IMO.

    But thats a cool photo....

    6'6'', 6'7'', and 6'8'' would be my guesses.

    Marcus is attempting an NBA comeback. He's 34 now, so its an uphill battle, but he's "down" to 275 and 8 percent body fat. So that's something.

    Its crazy to think that we had arguably the best college player 2 years in a row with Tinsley and Fizer.

    He doesn't look 6'10" because he doesn't have the greatest looking posture.

    I still say if Fizer came back his senior year, we would be #1 returning.

    Would have been top 3 for sure. Arizona started pre-season #1 with Gilbert Arenas, Richard Jefferson, Luke Walton, Loren Woods (a 7 footer), Michael Wright and Jason Gardner (both really good college players.)

    Duke was #2-- loaded with Battier, Boozer, Jay Williams, Dunleavy and Duhon.

    But I shudder to think how dominant Fizer would have been with another year. Couple that with a healthy Shirley/Rancik, another year of Tinsley... would have been scary. :v_SPIN:

    Id say Arizona and Duke were clearly better.

    They'll always be Cyclones.

    Who's the other guy?

    Also, Will always looks like he's posing for the cover of Dr. Dre's The Chronic.

    Fizer is looking jacked in that picture. He must be in need of some money if he's attempting an NBA comeback.

    I would disagree. I think we would have won the National Championship that year. I know they had better future pro's and so on. However, That ISU team was freakin crazy good in college.

    Fizer looks like a beast in that picture. If he can adjust his game and focus more on rebounding and defense, I feel he can play in the NBA tomorrow Teams always need bangers, I just think he was too interested in scoring which along with injuries derailed career.

    Not to mention he was on a couple awful Bulls teams and he was too short to play the 4 in the NBA.
