Apparently Barta is JUST now figuring out NIL's are a tool to lure away good transfes. NO **** SHERLOCK.

Was listening to Chad ball wash Iowa hoops last night on KXNO and they talked a lot about Kris. Basically the consensus among the Iowa Fan Boy media is that he comes back and has a blow up season just like his brother. "they are the same player".... They never once discussed his age as far as next years draft goes, that can't be ignored and it does matter.
Or he get's hurt and costs himself a lot of money.

I like the Murray kids and hope they make a ton of money but I think Kris really should take a hard look at leaving. Fran isn't going to do crap for his career. Go get paid. He's the genetic clone of a lottery pick, teams will eat that up.

Kakert was on the radio this morning. He’s still saying that Kris really wants to come back, be the man, and then use a huge year to propel himself to the NBA. So we’re all supposed to believe that he’s a lottery pick just like his twin brother, but it’s just taking him one more year to prove it?! I mean come on this makes absolutely zero sense and no one in the Iowa sports media will acknowledge it.

You don’t see many age 23 season lottery picks

That sounds good in theory, but good luck getting the ball away from the McCafferys. Or good luck in getting a decent pass from them.

Well, my twin brother was All-State runner in high school. I quit the team after two weeks. I was All-Conf in basketball, he couldn't make a layup. So, you know, Kris will for sure duplicate Keegan's improvement and game since twins are exact copies.

It’s most likely my ISU bias, but I’m not convinced Keegan will be an NBA player.
I think he’ll do fine in the combine and will probably be a lottery pick, but I think NBA forwards will eat him up.

Having said that, if that happens being a “clone”, will all of a sudden be a huge negative for Kris.

I’ll predict Kris isn’t drafted next year, and never sniffs the NBA if he comes back to Iowa.
