I would love to see them stay (being the die-hard Tiger fan I am), but our track record shows that star basketball players don't stay very long at LSU (Shaq, Stromile Swift, & Brandon Bass).
Actually, in an interview during the season, Big Baby said he talked to Bass about going pro and told him it was a huge mistake thathe went early, and Big Baby said he would listen to his advice. PLUS, all these guys played together coming up, or close to each other. This is prob the best basketball true TEAM LSU has had, cause these dudes are like family. I think we will see them all come back.

"I think we will see them all come back."

Let's hope so, if they do return look out, we will make a lot of noise next year

Plus, isn't the NBA age limit 19 now? Is Tyrus 19? I don't know. But after hearing the interview with Glen, and how he said he trusted what Bass was saying about going pro early being a mistake, I think the fellas will stick, and make another run next year. Replacing darrell Mitchell is gonna be hard though. I sure as hell hope Temple and Tasmin work on their threes all summer

Hey spkb, I said I was a UNC fan but I didn't bash duke, just said that LSU played a great game, especially defensively. I'm not calling myself an LSU fan, I just liked the way they played yesterday. As for Mason, I will not be rooting for them, I like the way Wichita St. plays more than anyone else left in the tournament. They play better TEAM basketball than anyone left in the tournament (no offense LSU fans). They don't have the athletes that the other teams have but watch them play, they're very impressive and enjoyable to watch. And I don't like that one guy on Mason who punched the Hofstra player in the balls a couple weeks back, classless move right there... PS, did anyone else catch the Saints line during the LSU vs Duke game? What was it they said about LSU and our O-Line, or was I just hearing things?

They'll have Minor back next season... he should be able to replace Mitchell. Man this is one of the most athletic teams LSU has ever had... size, speed, and hops. They just need that solid jump shooter. I didn't even know who to root for yesterday but I kinda wanted Duke to win. I might have went to LSU, but I'm such a big Duke fan. Sucks for Redick and Williams leaving like that but a great win for the Tigers. I think Thomas will leave early... there is so much talk that he's going to be a lottery pick for quite some time now. It's hard to pass up on all that guaranteed money... though he would definately benefit from another year of college ball to work on his offensive game. As of right now, he has Theo Ratliff written all over him... a great shot blocker/rebounder with a limited offensive game... but he's more athletic so his ceiling much higher.

Yea they made some kind of comparison Timay... though I didn't quite understand it myself.

Nah replacing Darrel Mitchell wont be hard. Tack Minor was the starting PG at the beginning of the season if i'm not mistaken before he had a season ending injury. He'll fill in just fine.

hey livn i probably wasn't talking to you then. know what i am saying my man. if the shoe doesn't fit i for sure do not expect you to wear it. but when sonmeone gets on and starts ripping duke and comes otu and says they are a unc fan but is all over the hometown team now it is like hey man get off it already. it wasn't your team that just beat us and knocked us out so don't try living through them. if you go back and read the posts right above mine there is one i was obviously speaking on. so no worries livn i don't have any problems with you and wasn't talking to you just because you are a unc fan. hope that clears it up

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?
