now that tyler smith is facing felony gun charges and marijuana possession. Has he ruined his chance at being a first round pick or even being drafted at all. I guess he should have entered the draft last year and he might have not ruined his career.
i don't think he was going first round regardless. Now this hurts his chances of going in the second for sure, teams don't want to deal with head cases unless they are real good players, if you are just trying to make a spot in the league and you do this stuff, teams aren't gonna put up with it.
He's been smoking weed, etc for a minute. I have a buddy named Anthony Passley who played for Tennesse a few years ago and got kicked off the team for smoking weed, etc. He smoked with Smith all the time and said Smith had left just before they all got caught. Too bad Smith didn't learn from that. This will definitely hurt his chances of being drafted.
Yeah my friend is Tyler Smiths Grandmas ex boyfriend who has a cousin whose neighbor went to day care with Tyler Smiths roommate and he said the same thing :)
isnt gonna get drafted at all now. i mean the guy just doesnt seem to get or just dont care. once you do something stupid or anything pacman jones related. you starting getting a rap sheet and teams will look at all that . smoking weed, pulling guns out, wtf is smith thinking? that hes a hot commodity and cant be touch news flash buddy. unless you have lebron god giving talent . teams aint gonna put up with it. he probly be lucky if his name is heard in the 2nd rd. which i doubt. sure some team might pick him up. and give him a summer league try out. but at this point hes looking at a few dleagues, over seas career probly even a burger king career if he keeps going the way hes going.
I played ball with Passley in high school, which is how I know. Just relating to the story lol. Shout out to my boy Passley by the way. He's playing at Central State right now.
Tyler Smith was a mid 2nd round pick before this news. Now he probably isn't going to be drafted. His play has dropped off since his Soph year at Tennessee. He was a beast as a sophomore but this season he just hasn't shown me much. I hope he turns it around though. Smith was charged with a felony which means he is done for the season more than likely.
Tatum was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and having an open container of alcohol. Smith was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number, which is a felony. Goins and Williams both face gun and drug possession charges.
Tennessee was one of my sleeper teams to make a serious run at a final four. Losing Smith, Tatum, Goins, & Williams is going to hurt. They just don't have enough depth now. Huge blow to this team.
Scotty Hopson- it is your time to shine playa.
lol..learn from that?..trust me if he smoked then and got caught he would smoke later. my brother used to tell me stories while in nba training camps how guys smoke all the time even after getting caught and suspended.
Nah, he isin't getting drafted.
He wasn't a 1st round talent to begin with. Why deal with him now?
