Mason-Griffin is making a mistake, he'll be lucky to get drafted in round 2. Though, with all that is happening at OU makes me wonder about Capel and what he is doing to have 2 guys leaving.

whats funny is if he was on

whats funny is if he was on kentuckys team and put up the exact same numbers people would say hes a first rounder. he's just as talented as bledsoe but this is what happens when youre putting up numbers on a losing team. just like bledsoe i think he needs to come back

heard on espn radio tht he wants to pursue a pro career so he def is gone..... i like the dude and best of luck in serbia or wherever he ends up... i dont get it, why not transfer??? at 20 years old he is now a pro who has a long journey ahead of him.... 5 years from now he could be washed up and be 25 yrs old with no more ball...no degree like wow

Mason Griffin

Once some kids get it in their mind they are going to enter the draft, you can't stop them. I think Mason Griffin is one those guys. I think he can go early in 2nd round with good workouts.

This is a good year for

This is a good year for point guards to see what they can do, because this draft class lacks serious depth at that position, so teams in need of a PG might take a stretch, and draft guys a bit earlier than they would regularly

So dont be surprised to see the Kemba Walkers, Eric Bledsoes, Mason-Griffins, test there draft stock in a few workouts..

But, As for TMG, He definetly should stay...Guys, especially freshman, should stop settling for being 2nd round picks..., stay a year, and your a first rounder, another year and you might be a lottery pick...but Nope, he settles for possibly being a 2nd round pick

yeah but most teams have pg

yeah but most teams have pg so they chances of themgoing high arent that good..who are the lotto teams?

nets
hornets
minny
clippers
wizards

most teams need other things and none of these pg are projected game changers or though to be better then the pg that the teams already have plus there are other players who are simply better

Quincey

I dont think anyone here thinks Mason Griffin would be near the lottery but perhaps he could work his way up to the later part of 1st round.

true

I see your point for sure but he has made his mind up after one semester id say. Maybe later 1st round best I could give him.

It's nealry certain he won't

It's nealry certain he won't be a 1st round pick. He has only has an outside chance of being drafted period

It would depend on who else

It would depend on who else declares....

I don't think 7 PG's will even be taken. Last year was the 1st time in years more than 7 were taken and that was because of just how deep the PG class was.

better as far as more

better as far as more ready?..collins,wall,vasquez, the kid out of nevada. the first roound is gonna lack point guards not just because there arent alot but because there are better players at other positions and alot of teams picked the pg that they want in last years draft

Range

If I'm tryin to take a PG in the second round I pick him for sure....early second so I don't have to guarantee him a contract....but he definitely has 1st round talent so it would be worth it....

Qunicey

You made my point by making 3 guys and some guy from Nevada lol. If he goes undrafted I will be very very surpised. I say about 5 % of that happening. If you solid team and can takea chance with a pick hes a great option because he has good potential.

Advice

he should watch the tournament to see how its not always a bad thing to transfer......

Wes Johnson, Jordan Crawford, Epke Udoh, Curtis Kelly......think how many millions of dollars were made by those guys decisions to transfer....

either he has a higher sense

either he has a higher sense of his worth or someone is in is ear telling himto go. has he sign with a agent though?..alot of people are getting on himlike he has so im guessing he must have..if not then i dont understand why people are getting on him because you can come back if you dont sign with a agent

Y'all are overreacting. I

Y'all are overreacting. I like this guy. His speed and strength is underrated. His only knock is his size and I can't see his stock raising if he stays to his Junior year. I can see him going somewhere in the 20- or 30-range. I'm a Bulls fan and if he's available, I'd take him. He's a great backup but his far more potential than that. Look at Chris Paul, I see similarities.
