It wasn't that simple.........

Burke only had a few offers and and was not the player he developed into as a senior in high school when the decision was made by Thad to not offer and we already had Shannon Scott committed.

Most programs missed on Burke.

It happens.

You guys are both right....

Thad made a mistake, but it happens everywhere....

Kids develop at different rates...

It is puzzling to me that you can go to dozens of All Ohio Red games and take Spoon over Payne (I know it's not that simple) and miss out on Burke and almost Craft but Sibert was a must get even though he was injured...

I can't wait for the next batch of Ohio kids like that to come through...

It only happens like that once every 3-6 years...

2016 looks like it could be one of those years....

How different would the Buckeyes look right now with Burke and Payne? That would give us the only two things we are lacking right now. A second scorer and a low post presence.

Or if Byron Mullens was a 5th year Sr right now we'd have a triple threat!


The Triple Threat Has Been Shelved Temporarily | Yardbarker.com


This is EXACTLY what James Naismith had in mind.

Quote:
“I can get compared to Kevin Garnett, his inside game. Outside game, Dirk Nowitzki, explosive like Amar’e (Stoudemire). Those three guys I like to compare myself and mix them all together and do a little bit of triple threat.”

If you remember, this is how the former BJ Mullens described himself before the NBA Draft a few years ago. It produced major LULZ from even the most staunch Lord Byron supporter (does not exist). So to tip-off this NBA heavy post today, I feel the need to give everyone here an update on our favorite 7 footer for the Charlotte Bobcats. First of all, the big fella is out indefinitely with a recently sprained ankle. Clearly he does share some traits with Amare. That makes me a sad panda since they play the Cavs tomorrow night (talk about a ratings bonanza!). Second, he appears to be on the verge of superstar-dom as he is averaging 12 and 8. Those are Tristan (or Tristian as AC calls him constantly) Thompson numbers.

Finally, we may have all been under rating just how much of a threat Byron is. His stats indicate that Mullens has "in the gym range." By that, I mean that Byron freaking Mullens has jacked up 122 3 pointers in 27 games. I didn't even know that he could shoot anything outside of "dunk". But apparently he's launching over 4.5 threes PER GAME. I think that Jeff jumped the gun by picking the Wolves as his team. He should've gone with the Charlotte Mullens. In conclusion, Byron Mullens IS a triple threat! And if you get a chance to watch the Nuggets play, look out for our old buddy KoKo (that's Kosta Koufos if you were unaware and he used to be such a wonderful contributor here) as he has the world's greatest receding hairline. KoKo!
