    Entering the draft early seems like the absolute wrong decision. No chance of going in the first round (meaning guaranteed money/roster spot) and plenty of buzz lately about him not even being drafted. He can rebound and defend but he's not a good shooter, he doesn't have the size or skill to be a post player, and he doesn't have the coordination or ball handling to effectively drive to the basket. His offensive game also does not appear to have developed much since he's been here and statistically he actually dropped off this year vs. last year in terms of PPG, FG%, FT attempts and %, and 3PT%. He also led the team in turnovers which is especially bad considering that he didn't handle the ball that often. You also have to be skeptical about whether he can have the same rebounding success at the next level considering that even a lot of NBA guards are bigger then he his.

    I do think there’s a niche (albeit a somewhat insignificant one) in the NBA for a player with his skillet but he would be wise to come back for his senior year, try and improve his draft stock and most importantly improve his game so that if/when he does get to the NBA he’s better prepared and has a higher probability of a lengthy career. And besides honing his ability, given the possibility of things not working out in the NBA, coming back for another season allows him to get his degree and enjoy one more year of college-life.

    Why is it that we say "a penny for your thoughts" but when someone tells us his thoughts he give us "his two cents"?

    Why is it that when human beings make something it's considered "unnatural" but when animals build it, it's "nature"?

    Yeah, not a huge demand for players based on their culinary abilities.

    The view that only first round picks get guaranteed contracts is incredibly outdated. Most second round picks in the top half of the round have some amount of money guaranteed. Teams do it to protect themselves, in case the player turns out to be Gilbert Arenas 2.

    Andre has the skillet to be in the NBA. Contrary to what some have said this week, Brittney Griner and her skillet belong no other place then the kitchen.

    I hope this chauvinism makes up for my typo. Boys club!

    Stay on topic guys, this thread is about dre.

    If Dre has a bunch of odds and ends and gets rid off all but one, what does he call the last one?

    They rope you in for a penny, then withhold the recipe for Dre's Skillet until you give them more money.

    How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

    I remember watching the first game this year and saying "He regressed." If I noticed, I am sure the scouts did as well. Andre did not seem to improve his shooting, passing, or dribbling. However, his instincts and rebounding ability cannot be denied. I say he stays one more year and we'll see if he gets any better to see if he'll be drafted early. (IMO he will be a long-time pro.)

    Why must you post logical arguments. This thread is about skillets and word puns now.

    Every first rounder gets a guaranteed contract, not every second rounder does. And it doesn't sound like Dre has much of a chance to be in that top half of the 2nd round, so isn't that a moot point?
