I know if I mention position it'll give it away right away that's why I haven't.

Marvin williams


Nope. He didn't win the NCAA tourney (tho he did lead them to the Sweet 16), he won his Conference Champion. Was REALLY, REALLY hyped because of it but REALLY busted out in the NBA. :(

Wait, I need some clarification. How much of a bust are we talking? I was thinking in the area of Thabeet/Anthony Bennet, people who are not in the league or completely irrelevant.
Marvin Williams has been in the league for over 10 years as an average/slightly below average starter, not exactly what I had in mind.

This player was called the "miracle baby" because his mother had seven miscarriages before he was born.

So his team DIDN'T win the NCAA tourney? I'm confused, because you wrote this:

but then wrote this:

Conference championships count too you know. ;) They GET YOU IN the big dance. :D

His conference performance REALLY lead to his Draft hype tho. As I mentioned earlier. :)

Nope, said earlier The Stache wasn't him.

Hey guys, I had a brain fart (Moonlight/LaLa Land moment :lol: ). He made the Conference Finals but fell in another epic game. The whole Conference run was an epic one tho that did INDEED set his over inflated Draftc stock.

And he busted HARD as a result. To help you narrow it down:

- Conference Finals
- Sweet 16 (NCAA Tourney)
- Busted HARD
- HIGH Lotto pick

Still won't give the position tho. Would instantly name it to easy.

The player lost his girlfriend. He went to the coach's place and slept on his couch. Coach pulled a mattress next to him, spent the night sleeping on the floor just to be there for him.

Later on the coach lost his wife through a different tragedy, and the player offered similar support.


Ryan Anderson and Monte Williams?


Yeah a bit too easy I guess. Just thought it's too beautiful of relationship not to be mentiond.


Anderson and Williams are really good people.

What a relief! I was worried that today would go down as an unproductive day for me. I guess I can go ahead and go to sleep now. G'night, all!
