Quote from: popeyejonesfan on April 13, 2023, 03:34:46 PMMy bad. I thought CMM recruited him. You're right about him being too thin to get inside and bang with stronger players. I just thought there were some games where we were way ahead or way, way behind where he could have gotten more playing time. He isn't Popeye. But, I remember Newton catching flack for giving Popeye so many minutes as a freshman even though he was over weight and out of shape. I'm thinking that playing time helped him learn a lot, and, come back the next year and win OVC player of the year.I agree with you on playing time, as I would have liked to see Sam get more minutes. However, I'm not in practice so I don't know if there were other factors that went into it. Potentially, you don't want a kid to lose confidence either as I think he's still learning to play in the front court, so they may have been picking their moments with him. I felt like this happened a bit with Morgan which is why he saw minutes go down at the end of the year. He was recruited as a quick trigger, 3pt shooter, but really struggled this year at 27% from behind the arc. I think as the year went on, he became afraid to pull the trigger, which is not what you want.

I don't wish KJ any I'll will. I do, based on if the primary objective is to make it on an NBA roster, suggest that it s a bigger gamble going to LSU than it would be to stay at Murray. Should he stay and put up similar numbers as last year, I could almost guarantee you that he would be a lottery pick. He goes to LSU and faces 5 star talent every game? More than likely, the stock is gonna go down based on what I have seen of KJ defensively and offensively against other big men.
I am sure the immediate compensation at LSU is definitely going to be better than at Murray. So there is that.

He also shared that the university enjoyed approximately $325 million in earned media throughout the men's basketball coverage from November 2021 through March 1, 2022. Earned media, sometimes referred to as free media, is attention and exposure received from other media distributions and approaches other than paid advertising. Social media posts and media coverage are examples. This estimate is higher than the $247 million estimated in 2019 when Ja Morant played for the team."
With this kind of earned media, we ought to be able to afford to pay a coach.
