Default Wow, had no idea it's been 11 years

Since we had a player selected in the NBA draft with Renaldo Balkman to the Knicks. I suppose if I stopped to think about it, I would have realized it, but it doesn't feel like it was really that long ago. Now we have two potential in one year.

And how long was it before Balkman? I bet you can go back to Folger's teams prior to that.

I have a feeling things are about to change. We had three drafted in 1971, alone: John Roche, Tom Owens and John Ribock (The Enforcer).

I suppose it's not that shocking, given that you're dealing with far fewer players than football and we're not a basketball school. Nevertheless, I guess this means there's not a single USC player in the NBA right now? Never really thought about it.

So 5 players drafted into the NBA from USC in the last 50 years? Nice. About 1 every 10 years on average? Sounds about right

He was saying it would get back to that single draft. Guys like Alex English and Mike Dunleavy were in there too, but a SuperFan would know that...

There aren't any Gamecocks currently in the NBA. The most recent NBA players were Balkman (last played in 2011-12 season) and Tarence Kinsey (last played in 2008-09 season).

And even then, the Knicks reached on Balkman big time. It was a big surprise that draft night for him to go that high.

Overall, it's just a reflection of how poor the basketball program has historically been.

Yeah, I don't think I'd ever watched the NBA draft before that year or since that year, but just happened to have it on in the background as I was doing stuff and heard them call Renaldo Balkman's name. Most Knicks fans were not happy. I happen to be a Knicks fan, so I was pretty stoked, even though I knew it was a terrible use of that draft pick.

Rumor is the Knicks drafted him b/c he was represented by the same agent who was going to represent Lebron. There's really no other reason for it.

If that's true, it shows just how stupid the Knicks' front office was. Even under the old CBA, they wouldn't have had much of a chance to sign LeBron. He was coming off his 3rd NBA season and there's no way Cleveland doesn't exercise the 4th year option of his rookie contract. After that 4th year, he was a restricted free agent. Even if the Knicks signed him to an offer sheet, there's no way the Cavs don't match. Just under the CBA rules, that's wasting a first round draft pick for something that might happen 4-5 years down the road. Stupid. Not to mention that the Knicks traded him to Denver before LeBron even hit the market as an unrestricted free agent.

I know people like to read too much into things, but the simple truth is that Isiah Thomas was just in over his head as an executive.
