    Not sure how much any of this stuff matters, but it is an interesting article detailing how NBA people enjoyed the atmosphere at different College arenas. Even though CU only gets a brief mention in the article, it's good to see them mentioned in the same category as Michigan State for sure. And of course love the bad press for UCLA

    Brief, who cares? Tad continues to do the right things to build this program. Treat NBA scouts and execs well and they will want to come back to watch your players. Scouts watching players leads to scouts rating players highly. Highly rated players are drafted highly. Future recruits see Buffs in the pros.
    !!!!!!!!!
    Profit.

    Yup. This is something Tad's really smart about. Every relationship matters. Every single one. Loved seeing us on the list of teams that do what they can to help.

    Probably not a major factor, but nonethless, you don't want to make these guys jobs harder. You want them coming campus. You want to hear "20 scouts, 5 executives, and 2 GMs came to see Colorado take on ___ at Coors" on the broadcast. And like CU wants to see it's student succeed so they can list on their brochure how many Fortune 500 CEOs graduated from here, same thing applies to it's sports programs. The more NBA players and quality of them we have, the better it is for recruiting purposes.

    Yep, you never want to burn your bridges, you never know where one relationship can lead to. Tad seems to be doing a great job building relationships at both the high school and pro levels.

    UCLA can treat their NBA scouts players bad because it's not like they would pass on a 1st rounder b/c they had ****ty seats in the upper deck. They should cultivate a better environment, but when you in the best recruiting area in the country you don't have to be nice. We need to do everything we do because we'll tend to get less exposure than UCLA on national tv and in the media in general.

    It's nice to see us mentioned though. People are talking about us and we aren't that far removed from being the worst top-tier conference BB school.
