    Very nice to see.

    Not everyone can flip the switch and become hyper-competitive against an opponent who is also a friend when the game is on... and then flip it off after the final whistle. But we're seeing a couple seniors here who have figured it out.

    Burton is a freak of nature. A man that fat shouldn't be that nimble dammit!

    He'll make a great Harlem Globetrotter next year.

    As much as I want him to go 0 pts and 0 rebounds with 10 TOs on Wednesday. Joe is a really nice guy, and sat there on the court with his dad after the game. He was incredibly nice, and met with a bunch of people, many who are CU fans. Probably one of the most humble, friendliest players I have ever met.

    Joe has won me over this week. Not only is he a good player, but he's an open, and honest interview. Additionally, he tweeted compliments at the C-Unit as well as Sab, and had some nice comments about 'Dre post-game as well. Not a lot of kids like him in the sport, I'm sad to see him go.

    This is great to see and very refreshing. Hope we hold him in check on Wed but he is a classy guy that is easy to like.

    plus he has the best hook shot in the P12! good guy, nimble on his feet for a big man plus a HOOK-SHOT??

    he's probably my favorite P12 non-CU player....truth (we'll i really like dominic artis' game, but he spurned CU for UO, so joe wins)
