    Can’t blame Shabazz for staying close to home. Good luck to the kid

    Shabazz needed his shots, Cal doesn’t run like that…



  18. Al B. Sure
    7:55 pm April 11, 2012 Permalink

    Shabazz wants to go to a bad team so he can be a star. He pretty much said it. Oh… #14, ESPNU said that UCLA bumped us down to #3 when Shabazz picked them.

    Kyle Anderson looks stoned…..sure he’s not going to Cuse?

    Gotta understand people…our current Cats have not departed yet. That factors into these kids’ decision

    Bazz doesn’t want to share the ball, so decided to go to UCLA.



  23. Paducah Fan
    8:02 pm April 11, 2012 Permalink

    Congrats to Shabazz for getting it over with, had a feeling he was going to stay out west and play along side Kyle Anderson. 21. You are right, none of our current players have declared for the draft and that factors into these kids decisions.

    this entire 90 minute show is devoted to only 2 recruits making their decision?

    Hey…we are all disappointed but lets not trash the kid…it don’t do us or our recruiting any good to trash some kid… Bummer he didn’t choose UK and if we lose Nerlen…so be it…I’m am sure Cal will put a good team on the court next year…



  27. kyrobman

    We need all #BBN to show class and just unollow these kids if they don’t pick us. Please don’t blast them and give us bad pub.

    Cal can coach, im not worried. Bazz may want to be oj mayo 2.0…its his life let him live it

    UCLA ?!?!?!

    BWHAHAHAHAHA !!!!!!!!

    So much for wanting to compete for a championship, or develop your game. Long Beach St., Creighton, St. Louis were ALL rated ahead of UCLA. Duke I could understand, but this guy just wants to jack up 30 shots a game and never make the tourney. Think his coach, desperate for talent, will bench this guy for bad shot decision like Cal would? How about lack of hustle of the defensive end. Cal would have made him work too hard and made him be a TEAM player.

    People. He didn’t stay “home”, unless by “home” you mean some place 800 miles away.

    I’m feeling kind of sick, but I’m sure I’ll look back on this day and laugh when we hang #9 next April! No worries! In Cal we trust!

    Not going to get Noel his mom wants him to go to Georgetown and he said his mom helped him with his choice! That’s why Cal mentioned Willie Cauley, and seemed down, he knows!

    damn, i was looking forward to getting a shabazz t-shirt from fan outfitters…



  38. Keep Your Chin Up
    8:24 pm April 11, 2012 Permalink

    There are a ton of coaches that would love a lineup that includes Poythress, Goodwin, Harrow and Wiltjer. If anyone else comes back it makes this a top 5-10 team. If Cal gets a commit from Noel, Bennet, Jefferson, or that Origami feller we are top 1-5 team.

    Would hope the NCAA (and, of course, the media) continues to probe whatever concerns it may have had about the amateur status of the newest UCLA signee.

    I really am relieved by his decision. I’ve watched him play and heard his dad interviewed. He will not subordinate his game for any team. I wish him the best.

    Ya’ll saying stupid things like “Im worried Cal has lost his edge” are nauseating. We will be fine. If these two guys dont come here, they dont belong here. Shabazz’s ego is so big he thinks he can go to UCLA for one year and take it back to its glory days? That sounds like a player that is selfish and motivated for and by self. Not our kind of player-you saw this years team-you think he would have played unselfishly like that? If Nerlens comes here, awesome. If not, in the words of our fan Jay Z, on to the next. To immediately jump to questioning Coach Cal and all that? Makes you look like straight up fools.

    41 – You really think they’ll make us play 4-on-5? Otherwise, you’re an idiot.

    Boy….my gut says Nerlen’s is going to G’town. I can just picture him in their uni. He’s like a throw back player..even has the look.
