Suspended for possession of Marijuana.
Wazzu's sitting right on the bubble playing in a must win game against UCLA tomorrow and he's suspended for it.
I hope they win.
I like Washington State and think they're much more deserving of being in the NCAAs than scrub squads like Richmond, BC, and Clemson.
Dale i still don't know why you're allowed to post on this site. You thought Jimmer was black after watching him on tv. So don't call Klay Thompson retarded, look in the mirror buddy.
When I mistakenly called Jimmer black, I wasn't trying to carry my team to the NCAA Tournament.
Two very different circumstances.
Klay just let down his family, his team, and tens of thousands of Wazzu fans.
So because Klay Thompson plays college sports, any mistake he makes is worse than the same mistake made by anyone else?
You've got some nerve, didnt you say Kawhi Leonard's tripod was big??? You sure did raise a couple eyebrows with that one!
Yes, B-ball fan, it's called circumstances.
I let down a few nerds on an anonymous forum.
Klay, on the other hand, let down tens of thousands of fans and possibly just killed their chances at an NCAA berth.
This is the second straight year Klay Thompson built up a nice little rep for himself in the non-conference and then stunk once league play began. He is a 40 percent shooter in a lousy Pac 10. Last year, he was a 36 percent shooter in an out-of-this-world bad Pac 10. Smoking or not, the guy has been a big tease.
Dude, Dale chill out...Davies just got suspended for having sexual relations with his G! Sure Davies, and Thompson let their teams down but people make mistakes, dont be hating right away! Just look at what Michael Vick did and where he is now!
You know how many 18-21 year olds get busted because they're "retarded"? A LOT of 'em... It's apart of growing up.
he didnt do anything wrong,MARIJUANA ISNT DRUG,ITS NATURE...IF THIS WORLD ISNT SUCH &$#%#&@! UP PLACE CONTROLED BY VATICAN IT WOULD BE NOTHING WRONG SMOKING MARIJUANA WHENEVER YOU WANT AND WHEREEVER YOU WANT,,,,
Yeah I agree, Marijuana shouldn't be illegal. It's only illegal because the gov't makes so much money from putting people in jail from it, and they couldn't control it because it can be grown along with many other bs reasons. It's ironic that cigarettes and alcohol is legal but not marijuana.
regardless of whether or not marijuana should be legal, a young man getting caught with some isnt the end of the world unless he was selling it or had huge ammounts. If he is retarded then i imagine damn near half of college bball players are retarded for doing something similar. It does hurt wazzu since they have a must win game today to keep any chance of bubble hopes alive.
and to btph, while his shooting percentage is down, he is still averaging about 21pts 6rebs and 4assts and is in my opinion the runner up to derrick williams for pac 10 poy. 40% from a gaurd who draws all the attention is not the end of the world.
also, regardl;ess of how down the pac is, there are4 a number of very good wing defenders that are on par defenisvely with those in any conference that klay has to face. marcus simmons of usc, malcolm lee of ucla, jorge guttierez from cal, justin holiday and venoy overton from washginton etc..Hes not faqcing weak defenders.
20 points on 17 shots per as well as 4 assists to go with 4 turnovers. If you think he is the second best player in the Pac 10 this year, then the league is even worse than I thought.
He is retarded for getting caught the day before the biggest game of the season for his team.
keep hating on the pac btph, remember the flat out terrible team aka ucla will make the tournament.
also i think its funny that a guy getting 21-6-4 and projected to be a first round pick being the second best player ion the conference means the conference sucks.
Clearly it is my hatred for the Pac 10 that has made Klay Thompson miss all those shots the past two years and also why the Pac 10 is the seventh-rated conference by the RPI behind the Mountain West and SEC. I also somehow have the power to make UCLA unable to beat decent teams on the road. I had no idea. Ah, the power of rationality.
As for him being a first round pick, find me guys who get into the league on the reputation of being an elite shooter who also shot 40 percent in the Pac 10 or any other seventh-highest rated conference in the NCAA. I would think that would be a very short list if it exists at all, and should there be someone he probably didn't last long.
as for your first paragrapgh, just sounds like more hating. Its not healthy my friend. As for your second paragraph, not even sure what you are trying to say. The pac 10 actually is very well represented in the nba. Remember that scrub from stanford that the stupid knicks picked up last year from the sorry pac 10, what was his name again?
also klay is shooting over 44% on the season, the fact his percentage dropped for the secopnd year in a row in conference play doesnt exactly scream pac 10 defense sucks.
Klay Thompson's value as a draft prospect is as a shooter, I think that is pretty much easy to understand, which makes it concerning when he can't actually make shots on a consistent basis. It has nothing to do with the league he plays in. I think the fact that Kyle Singler has showed to be a lousy small forward when checked by opponents more athletic defenders of similar size indicates he probably isn't going to be much of an NBA small forward. I think for all the praise Kemba Walker gets, he just finished another Big East season shooting around 40 percent (he was 41 last year and 40 this). He is still 6'0 and still not a true point guard, so it why exactly should anyone get excited about the draft prospects of a small inefficient volume scorer on a .500 Big East team?
i dont think klay is gonna be all that great, but look at his entire season stats, not just pac 10, he is over 44% from the field and over 41% from 3. He is a good shooter. I have used the same nba comparison for him for over a year now, he is just like chase buddinger, and buddinger is proving to be a solid role player in the nba. Nobody is caliing klay a lottery pick.
Budinger was a more efficient scorer in years where the Pac 10 was both more talented and deeper.
chase also never averaged 20ppg or shot over 40% from 3, things klay has done twice now. Regardles of how much better the pac was then, wathcing them play, the only differnce i see is chase had more bounce in his step while klay is more crafty with his one on one moves.
Yatth! Klay Thompson just cost his team an NCAA bid.
Nice job Klay the Kyutie!
if wazzu doesnt make the tournament, they have only themselves to blame. Second straight year they fell apart in conference play. Klay missing one game casue of weed is not the guy who deserves blame.
He does deserve blame cuz they would have easily beat UCLA if Klay had put NCAA Tournament aspirations ahead of weed.
