They booth looked pretty damn comparable to me this year

Not as foolish as you look for buying into all the hype without knowing a damn thing about the guy. It's the end of the season - he looked like garbage compared to what people expected him to be. Just admit you were wrong, and you completely bought into him not knowing anything about his game.

Yurt is the perfect example of why I don't obsess over rankings and stars.

Also, Gott might get a job in his Turkish league since it doesn't appear they play a lick of defense there, either

Agreed - I'm shocked that people have already forgotten what happened when we got Harrow/Leslie/Brown. It was bound to be the same thing.

i think yurt is a bit of an exception though ^. obviously he's been disappointing and hasn't lived up to what we had hoped and expected. but i think ranking/evaluating foreign players is much harder than evaluating your typical US high school recruits. not that you should take every recruit's ranking as gospel...but yurt is more the exception than the rule.

Bambard had high rankings out of high school right?

^Kicker rankings are kind of hit or miss. They have "kicking gurus" who host camps/competitions and rank kids based on performances. Bambard being a top 10 kicker on one publication could mean he had one good competition or he just competed a lot, not really as clear cut as other positions.

I think Yurt has shown flashes, but it's fairly rare that a big man goes from international ball to being super effective right away. I always felt like the best case for Yurt was to start slow, finish strong, and then come back for a really dominant 2nd season. Clearly he didn't finish strong and now a season 2 looks iffy. I'm also not sure if he just didn't fit in the system as well as we hoped.

Remember, Yurt was suppose to be an offensive/rebounding guy and we knew he would be a liability on defense. I think pairing him up with Abu was a bad match and pairing him with Anya wasn't a viable option given speed. I could see him pairing well with Freeman/Hicks next year to let the other guy focus on defense and rebounding.

Yeah we should just cut him, he won't get any better.

He averages 6.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in his first year in USA. Alex Len freshman year 6.0 and 5.6. Now Len is a part time starter and solid NBA player.

Yeah, he's going to be good after he gets a little stronger and more experienced. While he certaintly didn't live up to the hype, he moves very well for a seven footer and has alot of skill.

LOL, jrb coming in here trying to get praise for saying he isn't going to be any good.

i mean hell...might as well bring up every post from the preseason where a lot of us said we thought we'd be a top 25 team and laugh at ourselves for being so wrong.

Best 7 ft. freshman we have had in forever. If you had expectations that met the media/draft predictions, then yes you are disappointing. If you wanted videos of his game play in Europe, then you probably feel like we got the same guy who was playing over there, because I honestly didnt see a difference in his game play between time with the 2 teams.

Time to hit the weights, work on positioning, and mental toughness to not make silly meaningless fouls when out of position.

Not even remotely looking for praise, dumbass. This started because packboozie said I was going to look like a fool. I'm coming in here looking for packboozie to admit Yurtseven did not even come close to meeting his expectations.

If he doesn't transfer I could see him improve. That being said, he needs to get stronger under the basket.

i don't think he'll transfer and sit out a year. he'll either just go back to Turkey or somewhere in Europe and play professionally or he'll stick around and hope he's NBA ready next year.
