NC State - NBA


I am literally shocked that neither CJ Leslie or Richard Howell went in the NBA draft. Kind of sad when you think that most people consider the 2nd round picks to be jokes. This year's draft class was extremely weak, but then again so was our performance given the level of expectation for this year. Yes CJ's lack of effort on the defensive end and turnovers cost him, but he was still a first round talent that didn't materialize. Howell should have been drafted for effort alone, who doesn't need a rebounder in the NBA?

What a tough off season, Purvis gone (yes he was a crier, but still was supposed to be a big talent...truthfully he had trouble hitting layups), 3 players leave for the NBA and 1 gets drafted late, and it wasn't the 1 that many thought. I am certain that both Howell and CJ will make an effort to make a team, but don't we need to have some more success developing kids for the next level in order to have continued success. I look forward to seeing how Gottfried rebounds, I do believe in him, I like his recruiting and transfers he has brought in. Maybe this year will be better than expected. Afterall, State has never been a good front runner and our team is not getting any respect yet.
