Sometimes I'm curious if I could say anything you wouldn't argue with me about. Would you say this is more or less accurate?
Hunter said he transferred to further his basketball career and money wasn't really a factor, his words. More likely he felt like he couldn't be honest about the real reason and there's not really a lot of evidence that Texas point guards take the world by storm compared to ISU point guards, there's kind of the opposite evidence. Also it was pretty clear his minutes would go down significantly at Texas and they have.
Holmes said he transferred to further his basketball career at a higher level. Fully believable claim whether he got paid or not and now he's on the edge of being considered 1st or 2nd team in nation's top conference.
Would you say Holmes achieved his goal to about the maximum degree possible...at disadvantaged ISU of all places...and Hunter has not since money was no factor and his numbers are a wash at best vs last year and his minutes are down?
My main thing is:
- I don't care that they are pros, wonderful, get that money, that's the rule now. Prosper any way you can.
- Sharing minutes at Texas is not a better springboard to be an NBA point guard than playing almost 40 mpg at ISU. There's just absolutely nothing that suggests that.
