    Why would anyone leave IC to go to CR for pizza?

    Makes $1.4 million per year.

    Dunks so hard that Russell ******* Westbrook was congratulating you on it.

    Yeah, “Iowa State guys are only bench guys, Foster won’t care about that.”

    This is probably the most absurd thing I've heard a recruit say since Rashad Vaughn said he picked UNLV because of their high powered offense, which averaged like 58 ppg.

    But Deonte was basically a finished product when he got to campus, right? No development during his time at Iowa State, right? ... Right?

    He said how they compete. Not because they win or are competitive. It may be due to their lack of competitiveness that he is talking about.

    The most ridiculous part about that Hok argument is there really knocking their own program development of players who aren't even in the league making the minimum (sans an undrafted Cook) under Fran guidance.
    The point is to get into the league and make 1+million not to work in IC selling insurance when you graduate. Only a hok fan would dilute themselves into believing staying in EIU and being a "Carver local legend" is preferable to a recruit over playing in the NBA even sitting on the bench.

    Plus, and I do not think I can emphasize this enough --

    Russell Westbrook came out to high-five Deonte and tell him what a BA dunk that was. Guys like Westbrook are heroes to these players, living legends, in ways we will not understand. And Deonte gets to hang with and play with him.

    While making bank.

    The money, ego, fun, and unique life experiences that come with making and sticking with the NBA, even as a back-of-the-bench guy, are priceless to these guys. No, none of our guys are superstars or even full-time starters, but compared to the alternatives or even playing in Europe, our guys are killing it. Deonte will remember that moment the rest of his life. That is the sort of thing he tells his grandchildren about someday.

    Glad Foster noticed that track record and that he would have a network of players and, by extension, coaches and front office staff into the NBA as a Cyclone when he would be mostly starting out on his own if he chose the Hawkeyes.

    He chose wisely.
