Dalen Qualls commits to Kansas
The 9 time Oklahoma state leading scorer Dalen Qualls announced today that he decided to Rock Chalk Jayhawk! The pride of Stratford, Oklahoma said, "I am the coaches son, so I have to stay humble. But, my name is Dalen Qualls and I am a BEAST!" He chose Kansas over Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, North Texas, Gazebo University of France and Wakachipawopmamasaymamasawmamacusa State. Bill Self is saying that while Josh Selby, the Morris twins and Thomas Robinson may all be leaving school, he luckily will have the best player to come out of HS since John Bryant. Multiple banners are expected, and Dalen should keep NBA franchises waiting much like Tim Duncan as he plans getting his degree (all the best Dalen)!
And, he of course came up with "My name is Dalen Qualls and ima beast!"
Not to mention, McDunkin had one of the most legendary pictures of all time about Dalen. Hard to find it though, think a lot of his stuff was removed or is missing :(
that was pretty creative. Whatever happened to that guy? and 4th Dimension for that matter too lol
Dalen was banned, and a lot of his posts were deleted. He pioneered the popular phrase, "J/K I'm Dalen Qualls and I'm a beast."
I think 4th Dimension is still around.
Good one mikeyv.
I thought it would be semi-realistic, as I did not fall for any of the other ones. Especially not Jared Sullinger hires agent, which I saw was posted as soon as April Fools day happened (12 am). The David Stern one was decent, but I did not really believe that one either. Personally, I think David Stern has been a pretty awesome commissioner, and while this lockout may seem to be his issue, he has done a pretty good job as far as I am concerned. Every pro league has its share of garbage, but I think the NBA is still run better than the other leagues. Just my opinion.
As far as Dalen is concerned, I am glad catoosa22 is banned, but I think he was probably a good guy. He just was so arrogant and self promoting, it was difficult to take him seriously and easy to ridicule him. I saw he finished his HS career with over 3000 points, one of only seven people to do that. I honestly wish him the best, but he was an incredibly obnoxious and immature poster in here (if that was him). If he actually would have actually been a little less arrogant, I think he would have been responded to quite well. But, unfortunately not everyone possesses humility.
I kind of felt bad posting this afterwards, and I really do hope Dalen does the best for himself he possibly can. Believe me, I am not against him eventually being on a D1 team, or even in the NBA. I just kind of hope he learned a lesson by his being banned from a board that embraces basketball prospects and talks about them constantly. Until he proves us otherwise, he will be known around these parts for all the wrong reasons. Dalen, believe me, I am not a doubter and hopes this shows that. I just get sick of people, even beastly basketball players, being entirely to conceited about their abilities. Let other people give you props man, I am sure they do and did, which is why you thought it was alright to talk about yourself the way you did. But, it gets old, fast.
*Punching my god damn eyes out*
Never force anyone too. Just wanted to make sure that I am not a cyber bully and that my intent is understood.
Are you happy, flyboy?
Is this what you wanted?
no black kids in that video, no wonder why he looks good
@symbol I've seen him do the samething to black kids in AAU and High School ball kid can play.
@mikeyvthedon Thats not the real Dalen Qualls, Kid is very humble and doesnt not post nor has he ever posted on nbadraft.net. Dalen has got some D1 looks but he is headed to JUCO.
He looks pretty damn cocky in that highlight reel.
what basketball player doesnt play with some swag? He is not cocky at all real humble kid.
Looks like Dalen Qualls got himself a new account...
lmao naw just know the kid.
Now the question of truth.......Does KANSAS commit to Dalen Qualls??
Seeing as how the Big 12 has black players I doubt it...
Tell Dalen that someone made him look like a complete @ss on this board posting as him (though, I think he somehow knows this already). Is Dalen the best player you have ever seen in person?
@mikeyvthedon naw he isnt the best player i've seen lol but he is one of the top players in the class of 2011 for the state of Oklahoma even though its a weak class for Oklahoma basketball.
I was always hesitant to join in the Dalen Qualls bashing, because I really doubt that a kid would go online and talk about himself like that. I think it is most likely just a friend of the kid doing at as a joke. Or it could just be that some &$#%#&@! thinks it's funny to get online and pretend to hype up a random mid-major level talent.
Comments on the Qualls highlight video...
1. Has he every played more than 1 game? Looked like that whole reel is from one game where he played well. How bout some other opponents there superstar?
2. That D by the other squad was atrocious. I seen better D being played in pickup ball at the Y.
3. He had a nice J going in this game but his release is so damn slow. If he ever plays against solid competition that shot is getting sent to the bleachers.
4. This clearly aint inter city ball by anymeans. There are no athletes on that floor. No size. The big men look like PGs.
5. I'd hate 2 be his teammate. Learn how to play the game as a team. He never looked once at a teammate to pass to or even read the floor.
Now advice for the future...
Don't come into anything in life with that ego no matter who you are. You come onto a court saying "imma beast" u probably arent. Dude needs to head to an AAU or Summer league game with real competion and I can safely say he's either gonna STFU or come back real humble real fast. You commin onto an internet forum trying hype urself up by being cocky as hell only gonna cause u problems.
1.Yes he has played against more than one team and against tougher comp,that video is old last year i believe when they were in class A, this year they were in Class 2A.
2.Yea there arent too many good Class A teams
3. As for his jumpshot ive never seen him get it blocked in AAU or HS yet
4. As i said before it was Class A, not too many athletes in Oklahoma's second smallest Class
5.Teammates love him he avg about 8 asts his junior year which is when this video was taken
Where were you when I needed you yesterday? I am so glad you found this post. That set-up was amazing, and probably the hardest I have laughed at anything on the sight.
Charlie Sheen tried Dalen Qualls, and his head did actually explode.
McWinning wanted to change his name to McDalen, but was contacted immediately by the Sultan of Brunei's lawyers for copyright infringement as that was the name of his favorite palace.
It could be, but he just kept popping up and saying obnoxious things. So, it just kind of became him. It would be funny if he did actually have no idea about the whole thing, probably even a little unfortunate. But, I have a feeling this guy looks himself up on Google on a daily basis, or someone would have said something. I wish him the best, and I write these posts about him in jest. But, like most of the posters who try and self promote, it got old and they kind of made themselves into easy targets. Patty Mills was a perfect example. That name will probably mean the exact same thing to any of us here ever again :). I sincerely hope it was not Dalen, but we knew him as such and fairly or unfairly, he will most likely remain this figure here until we have proof otherwise.
I hope my grandchildren are kind and considerate unlike that Qualls kid. He seems like a high-faluting nincompoop.
Yes, yes nincompoop is the perfect term. +1 for Grandpops.
I appreciate that, Mr. Dymes. You seem to be a kind and articulate young man. I hope my grandchilren grow up to be just like you.
I'm beginning to like you all more than "just friends".
You seem to be a very friendly fellow yourself. Welcome!
Its guys in big citites such as Detroit, Cali that play in tougher leagues than this dude and have waaayyyyyyyyyyy more talent than him....jus be greatful you are getting some looks from schools, cause it's alot of boys I grew up with in Detroit that never got that opportunity and now they stuck in the streets.....and real talk they would eat this boy Dalen Qualls...alive
Pardon me, Mr. Dave, but I don't care to hear your "Me from da big city, yo, and ah ain't got no prospects, yo. Us kids from da hood got it tuff, you know? But we tuff, yo, you know? The game be all we have, yo." Mr. Qualls may be a hooligan, but he can "ball", as my fifth grandson, LeRoy would say.
Im not saying he can't play lol but if he played in the Detroit Public School League, you would never hear of this boy and I can gurantee you that.
Ya its like i said, he's got a decent J but that isn't going to get you that far once you're playing against real competition. And all that highlight shows is him catching fire against a team in 1 game. That isn't a real, its footage from the best game of his life.
ProudGrandpa isnt allowed within 90 feet of any Toys R Us
I like to shop at Toys Are Us for toys for my grandchilren. I just bought my youngest, Billy, a Big Wheel and a set of Weebles.
He is some more film on him from the state tournament
He is not a D1 talent. I'm most likely a better athlete then him and I didn't even play HS ball. I'm not impressed other then the fact that he has deep range.
i agree thats why he went juco needs to get stronger and be more of Pg right now he is a 2 but he is a solid athlete.
He committed to NOC-ENID
He's come a long way from shooting hook shots in his driveway, lol
man, Tommy Mason Griffin in proving how he deserves to be in the NBA right now.
