Updates on ex-Huskies

Posted by Bob Condotta

I know these are making the rounds already, but in case you missed them, here are a couple of quick updates on some ex-Huskies:

--- First, Bobby Jones was traded today from Denver to the New York Knicks as part of a four-person deal. But it sounds as if he's likely to be waived, so he may never actually wear a Knicks uniform or become a pro teammate of Nate Robinson's. Instead, sounds as if he may again be on the search for a new home.

--- Second, here's a note that Brandon Roy is becoming an avid cyclist, and another on his recent engagement to his longtime girlfriend.

Is this Solomon calling out Gaddy?

"I've seen Gaddy play once and from what I'm hearing," Hill added, "he's a really good point guard so I'm hoping he'll commit sooner ..."

The stage is set for Gaddy....

-------

Hill would have been the fourth member of the recruiting class but five-star point guard Abdul Gaddy retracted his verbal commitment on May 26.

"I played with Moser and Greg Smith," Hill said. "They're cool guys to play with and are serious about playing basketball.

"I've seen Gaddy play once and from what I'm hearing," Hill added, "he's a really good point guard so I'm hoping he'll commit sooner or later, too."

Wow, I guess Lute really is losing it. Already has 3 Top 85 players committed (though we all well know like Bess says "it isn't necessarily so" until the recruit is on campus in classes) and Gaddy will likely follow suit. The re-load process is almost complete.

As well, Lute is currently in Greece at the U-18 World Championships. Who would like to bet the meatball that Lute returns with a committment for this year of a European player who is twice the talent of Negedu?

Meatball-

Lute's a great recruiter. Arizona's a good program- better than UW (maybe not forever- but now, yes).

Now, go away. YOu add nothing to this comment board.

Well, like the Meatball says "it ain't necessarily so".... Greg Smith is rumored to have changed his mind and heading to Fresno State.....if that is true, that tells me that Lute must have made an offer to a higher ranked Big-Man and he may have accepted...cuz seriously, Fresno State? That's like choosing Washington....

Tone- I didn't insult anyone, just making references that are backed up by ESPN. Washington as a program is ranked around #124 and Fresno State was ranked #156...so I was making a simple comparison from analysis that ESPN performed. Fresno State and Washington have accomplished pretty much the same accolades over the last 25 years. If you can't face that, well, that's really too bad as it is reality. I love that you guys can't handle the truth. It really is sad.

Dlep- Simple points I get from this is that he doesnt perform to high enough standards (low points and rebounds), he doesn't have leadership skills (typical trait of someone management wants to keep around), and is not mentally mature. Since you have issues with reading comprehsion, I will repeat myself a few times:

Hawes has yet to show that he is a player that is capable of sustaining a long career in the NBA. He hasn't shown leadership on the court in College or in the PROS, and hasn't proven to be the player that NBA execs thought he might be. #10 pick averaging under 5pts a game?? Wow, impressive. When he doesn't improve his numbers this year, he will simply begin to fade away much like many NBA players who are much to young who simply now get referred to as "where are they now." Hawes is a perfect example of the overhyped "superstar." Good enough to make the league (since they tend to draft on potential) but nowhere near good enough or mature enough to make a career in the league.

Meatball,

You're continual defense that you just deal with "facts" is irrelevant to my arguments that you harm this board. Facts don't speak for themselves; facts speak whatever the speaker (you) is trying to say:in this instance, that UW sucks.

you're belittling accusations that we 'can't handle the truth' betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of the point of this board. Husky fans should not have the burden to grappling with the 'truth' of Arizona's superiority every time we read this blog. It is not so much a question of whether or not we can 'handle' the truth but whether or not we want to. IF we don't want to (and why would we?) why should we have to?

The point of being a fan is to enjoy the successes of your team, hope they improve when they're not great, and debate ways in which they can get better in the future. You advance none of those aims with your pointless, contemptuous comments.

You write, "I love that you guys can't handle the truth. It really is sad." Wow. That's a perverse statement. You dish out the truth, knowing we don't want to deal with 'the truth,' I guess "love" that we want to deny it and express displeasure when you assert it (loving our pain), and then you feel PITY for us.

Are you a drill Sgt., toughening us up? OR our father, teaching us some 'life lessons?"

I'm going to call it for what it is Mr. Meatball, Sadism. Seriously, it's the intentional infliction of pain. Am I wrong? No.

So, answer me this. What is your investment in making all of us Husky fans feel bad? What pleasure do you get out of it? Answer that question mr. meatball.

Posted by Dave " The Meatball" Armistead

10:26 AM, Jul 29, 2008

Tonedef- Gotcha! I knew you couldn't ignore me. I mean no harm friend, just trying to spice it up.

Dlep- sure you can disagree, as blogging is free discourse at its finest, but I haven't really hurled any insults. Let me give you a brief history: The first year I posted on this board, every Husky fan had the misconception that Washington was a stronger program than UofA due to the 3 fortunate victories in the same year a few years back. I dealt with many , many, many KoolAide drinkers at that time. SInce then, many more posters have shown signs of realism and support the Huskies, but don't go overboard. I am simply here as a reminder that the Huskies need to prove themselves on the court to be considered a Top Basketball program. I agree that you guys have some talented players that should be able to compete, but I think Romar handcuffs the teams potentail with his coaching style, and the yearly schedule that is littered with sub-par opponenets. The Meatball does not respect a coach who pads stats simply to have the appearance of success. I typically am civil, and I will be civil one again, but I sure do like to antagonize....besides, everyone loves a villian, and who doesn't love Meatballs?

Meatball,

I don't care whether or not you mean to harm (though your statements on this very thread suggest that you "love" to harm- so I don't believe you), the fact is that you harm this board.

WHy do you get pleasure out of that? What is your investment?

What if no one wants you to spice things up? What purpose does that serve, anyway.

Maybe I'm on the only UW fan that cares about this. Anyone else?

A great board is one where contributors can give some information they know or come across and throw out their opinions on the coming season, recruits, different players, recent games, etc. generating profitable and interesting discussions.

So personally I love it when other fans like Meatball (usually) and Cougfan jump in and offer some interesting information on their program (as it does/will affect the Huskies) or even fair assessments/opinions from an ‘outside’ point of view on the Huskies.

When personal insults are thrown out however, regardless if they come from Husky fans or other schools’ fans, it says to me that those people have an inferiority complex and need to affirm themselves by insulting strangers on a basketball blog.

Thank you to the majority of contributors who make positive contributions to this board. I really enjoy them and learn a lot by them. Others have provided some great links, updated news and sometimes even ‘insider’ information. That is when this board is at its best.

You wouldn't bode very well with your protective ideals outside of this blog...I hope you learn that others opionions are needed to make your own assertions that much more powerful.

You'd rather sit around and smile and tell yourself how great you are? Ha, that is exactly why I think Romar fails. Through the short success from a few years ago, he has allowed Husky faithful to become somewhat complacent. If that is how you like things, so be it Tonedef, so be it...

I quote:

"I am simply here as a reminder that the Huskies need to prove themselves on the court to be considered a Top Basketball program"

We do not need that reminder.You are not providing any service to us. What possible reason could there be us to be reminded of that?

I quote:

"You wouldn't bode very well with your protective ideals outside of this blog."

You're teaching me valuable life-lessons Meatball! Thank you.

I quote again:

"You'd rather sit around and smile and tell yourself how great you are?"

Ummm...I don't know the connection between how great I am and how great the huskies are. But I certainly know that I rather NOT be subject to obsessive statements of "Arizona's great, Huskies suck." and "you all are idiots who don't know basketball." Would you, MR. Meatball, say that those statements are mischaracterizations of your statements? No way.

And final quote (adding to previous one)::

"You'd rather sit around and smile and tell yourself how great you are? Ha, that is exactly why I think Romar fails."

And to equate my attitude towards this board and Romar's attitude towards the team...that's just ridiculous. Do you sincerely think that fans' attitudes towards this board affect romar- or fans should hold themselves to the standards as fans Romar holds himself to as coach? We're fans!!! We just want to enjoy the team!

The problem, Mr. Meatball, is you truly treat us like idiots when you point out whatever you are pointing out.

And yuo've yet to answer my simple question: what is your investment in coming over here and meanly asserting how much better AZ is, how lame the huskies are, and how lame we are? What pleasure do you get out of this? Tell me.

2:20 PM, Jul 29, 2008

Tonedef- Since you are a newbie on this board, I will recant my reasons for you rather quickly. One of my graduate school buddies at the UofA went to Washington for his Under Grad, and he told me that Husky fans were diehard, and even in the face of mediocracy they will tout how great they are and if you disagree with them they will simply call you jealous for not attending Washington, or some other argument in that fashion. So I tested the waters, and sure enough I found that 80% of the posters had that blind ambition and devoution. Well, after about 1 1/2 years of going back and forth, some intelligent dialogue crept into these basketball discussions, so the old Meatball eased up. Unfortunatley, sensitive new comers have brought back the demonstrative Meatball, and some of the more recent posts have gone off the rail.

As I reflect now almost 2 years later, I almost feel like I need to baby sit some of you or wipe your noses for you when you fall. It's somewhwat endearing now, as some of you are my meatball children and look for guidance through my wisdom. Some of you are still lost, which is okay as I will always be here to remind you.

And lastly tonedef, in your response you denote "us". Well my misguided 2 legged friend, as it is a blog you only can answer for yourself. Many on here get meaning and life by reading my posts, and who are you to ask me to stop helping them? What do you have invested that makes you think you speak for others? Do tell.

This is my last post. As you can see I am a moron who loves to waist endless hours on other teams blogs to make myself feel better about my coach being almost dead. Every Udub player in the NBA is horrible and will be run out of the league when their contract runs out even if they are major contributors to their teams because Udub sucks. All the players that attended Arizona including Luke Walton and Loren Woods will make the all-star team this upcoming season. The meatball thinks he should now move on to the Oregon St. blogs to give them a dose of reality and bore them with meaningless predictions on Arizonas superiority.
I'm out like Greg Smith, Jerryd Bayless, Brandon Jennings, Emmanuel Negedu,Josh Pastner, JP Prince and last but not least Kevin O'Neill

I have a proposal: why don't we change the name of this blog from the Husky Men's Basketball blog to the Dave "the Meatball" Armistead blog, as that is obviously the true subject, at least of the comments section. Will the Meatball ever move out of mom's basement? Will the Meatball ever get a job? Will the Meatball ever get laid? Find the answers to all these fascinating questions and more at Bob Condotta's Meatball blog. And what a following it has! Dozens of apoplectic, drooling dawg fans hanging on the Meathole's every word. The guy's a veritable Kelly Clarkston! Maybe he can be on Idol next. After all, who has time for UW hoops when we can spend all day carrying on inane arguments with some idiot troll trying to relive the faded glory days of a slowly dying program.

But seriously, tonedef, if Meatball is a sadist, then you are a masochist, as are all the rest of you who continue to respond to this guy. I don't know if he's trying to kill the blog or not, but I do know that those who reply to him are succeeding. Even when I skip over all of Meatball's rants, I find myself dismayed to discover that every other post on the thread is an answer to the Meatball!! Are you guys so stupid that you don't realize you're just feeding the fire, or are you so utterly lacking in self-control that you can't help but give him exactly what he wants? I mean "you're a big, mean bully, WAAAAAHHH!!!!" He'll probably frame that one and hang it on his wall.

It's not rocket science: if you don't have something more intelligent and original to offer than a reaction to Meatball, then keep your digital mouth shut. I don't read @#$!!ball's posts, and I surely don't want to read a bunch of knee-jerk reactions to him. As for you, MT Husky, obviously this doesn't apply to you. For reasons unknown and incomprehensible to me, you are able to carry on intelligent and civil conversations with the Ball. More power to you, I got no problem with that.

But for the others, please stop this infantile and self-destructive behavior. Talk about the team, not the Meatball. Does anyone really think he would still be here if all of his baitng and taunting was met with silence? Just say no, you can do it.

Posted by matty

8:41 PM, Jul 29, 2008

206er, I think their reluctance to offer Trent or Kemp may have something to do with the availability of Gaddy and Bradley, although you're right, they definitely do need another big, assuming Stanback goes elsewhere. And I think there may be some off-court issues w/ Trent as well. You know how adamant Romar is about having the right kids, as well as the right players. I'm not sure I'm always in agreement w/ him in this, but it's his way and you've got to respect it.

It seems that if the freshmen guards are good, and overton keeps it up, the likely failure to sign with AB of AG is not the devastating loss it seems like it may be.

It is, undoubtedly, disheartening that the state of Washington had 3 great guards this year that I assume Romar offered but UW got zero. that's not the idea.

A good season and I'm optimistic about josh smith and wroten. romar, I think, has a unique and effective charisma that attracts quality players if the program is even a top 25-30 level, top 4 in Pac-10.

Posted by MT Husky

8:23 AM, Jul 30, 2008

I agree with you therealdeal. I’m still holding out hope that Huskies land either Gaddy or Bradley but even if they don’t, the Huskies will be strong at guard the next several years. And, if they don’t, I think you can argue that if they were to land Gaddy or Bradley it could potentially damage chemistry with the current guards, limit the maturation of those whose PT would be reduced or even result in one of them transferring rather than being the great 4-year contributor they would be.

The experts are all saying this recruiting class isn’t nearly as strong as last year’s, so I think if you were looking at the scout/rival rankings of Thomas/Suggs/Turner they would likely be ranked several spots higher if they were a part of the 2009 class.

Matty, you were commenting on some potential off-court issues with Clarence Trent. Here is a link that touches on that.

Matty- Right on there fellah! The Meatball already has his own forum though, but I like your suggestions.

Grant- I agree to behave, but sometimes newbies bring it out of me.

As for Gaddy and Bradley vs current Husky guards.... that type of analysis is rather pointless in my opinoin. Guys like Overton who were pretty high prospects in their own right have NCAA experience, and found that they were in much deeper water than they were in Highschool. Gaddy and Bradley are both exceptional in the Highschool ranks, but the Meatball thinks both are too thin to have immediate dominated impact on the NCAA. One of the main reasons guards like Derick Rose and Mike Bibby were so successful as Freshmen was that they were already physically superior than most of their counterparts. Though Avery and Abdul are quite talented, I think they will need at least 2 years to get an NCAA type body.

That being said, I do welcome Gaddy to the Cats if that is who he choses, but I don't think he will beat out a healthy Nic Wise.

As for Kemp...I am in the camp that believes everyone should be trying to lock that kid down...towns of potential.

9:20 AM, Jul 30, 2008

FOUR quality guards from Puget Sound this year: Gaddy, Bradley, Siva, and Dotson. Romar will land one. If not, I'm sure he has multiple back up plans. And "back up" is probably a bad description.

Posted by therealdeal

9:37 AM, Jul 30, 2008

Here's another question for those who are interested in dropping knowledge:

can the huskies get away with playing VO with dentmon or IT for extended periods of time? I've seen dentmon be a very effective player (against UCLA last year, for example), but he's not a PG, in my view, but a crafty guy who can make shots and get to the basket. He can't do some of the things VO can, but as a scorer, could complement him well.

Who in the pac-10 is in a position to really exploit that? How exactly would that exploitation occur?

Holla.

Posted by Scott

9:44 AM, Jul 30, 2008

therealdeal,

Romar will have a lot of options at guard this year. It should be interesting to watch. He seems like a guard oriented coach, and unfortunately he hasn't had much depth to work with recently.

I think that teams with big guards might be able to exploit the husky defense a bit. They really need 2 of the 3 newcomers to contribute heavily this year.

If the game is uptempo I think they will do well. If it slows down, expect them to struggle a bit unless the new guys really step up.

I think the infusion of guards and ball handlers could really make the Dawgs a different team this year. Lets hope they gel quickly. They are freshman and we know how that goes.

10:13 AM, Jul 30, 2008

Great question realdeal.

You offered the question to those who are interested in dropping knowledge…I can’t do that, but here’s my arm-chair QB opinion.

From what we’re hearing, it seems to me highly likely that VO, Dentmon and Thomas will see the majority of minutes at guard. As you said (and I agree completely), VO is much more of a natural point guard and Dentmon really is a 2 – guard…it sounds like Thomas plays both well, so offensively I think Huskies will do well with any two of those three on the floor at the same time.

The concern though is defensively. That is such a small back court line-up. My guess is Romar will be forced to take what he can defensively though and make it up offensively – which I believe is realistic.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that Turner and Suggs can be a little more ready than what may be expected. Long term they will unquestionably both be great guards, but If they can quickly acclimate defensively and offensively to the collegiate level (and get a little stronger it sounds like), Huskies will have one of the deepest and best backcourts in the Pac-10 this coming season, AND, it will give Romar a few more guys to rotate in if VO/IT/Dentmon aren’t getting it done at either end of the floor.

Hey realdeal, I have a question for you (or for anyone else who is willing to throw out an opinion) - back to the guard discussion - Romar likes to run a 3 guard offense sometimes, think we'll ever see VO, Dentmon and Thomas on the floor at the same time?

MT Husky,

Absolutely I think that combo will be seen often. But only against teams when they run small. While that group may be a liability against larger guards who post up, it would be a good defensive group due to their speed. 3 fast guards can swarm pretty well. But I think Turner and Suggs will see substantial time in the mix which would provide more height.

As been stated many times, Washington is definitely headed back to the 3 guard offense with the recent recruiting compared to 2 years ago when all the team had was Dentmon, Appley, Oliver and Burmeister. Now we'l have Dentmon, Overton, Thomas, Suggs, and Turner. Much more speed and versatility.
