    Halliburton will have a Jarrett Culver type season for ISU.

    Yes, I’ll pass whatever I’m smoking.

    Love the optimism. Haliburton is probably my favorite player on this year's roster. He can do a lot of things, and I love the way he handles himself out on the court.

    Haliburton just needs a consistent little floater. If he has that he'll have an all Big 12 or better type of season.

    Looks like 4 college guys out of the group and the rest still in high school. Hope he makes the final cut. Didn't know Bruce was the coach.

    It is not impossible by any stretch of the imagination.

    -- Tyrese was a much more efficient player at roughly 1/3 the usage
    -- Culver was a much better rebounder, though, as you might expect
    -- Tyrese was a much better shooter from all ranges, too

    It might be a good comparison from a usage standpoint. I hope to see Haliburton's pick n roll usage go up, much like Culver.

    True. Culver just maintained reasonable efficiency at huge volumes. Tyrese had almost astronomical efficiency at relatively low usage rates. We know what Tyrese can do at 10%, but we will see what he can do at 20% or 25% next year.

    I know guys like Nixon and hopefully Bolton are going to be taking their shots, but Tyrese is going to have to step up on his shot-taking and shot-creation next season.

    Yep, he'll be looking to score when he drives this year. He'll pass at times, too, of course, but, last year, he basically drove to pass the ball. I agree with those predicting a big year for him.

    This is huge for the kid and great press for ISU. Have a player drafted and a player make a USA team on the same day!

    Glad to see they picked somebody who plays defense, moves the ball, leads the team, and can space the court, rather than stocking a team with great individual scorers.

    Tyrese is special.

    I'm really excited to see him play this role surrounded by a team of All stars, seems like a perfect fit.
