Jeff Green is staying in the draft. Roy Hibbert is staying in school (yay!).
Good luck to you, Jeff Green. I hope the Hawks don't draft you. I know you said things weren't "set in stone." But it's clearly more likely than not that you're gone. Remember, if the Hawks try to draft you, go back to class.
Roy Hibbert, congratulations on being a member of the class of 2008. You too can be a Georgetown graduate! With any luck, you'll be celebrating a championship and a graduation next spring.
"I said to myself, ’Do I really want to go in the draft and sit on the bench?’ My heart was here.”
Yes, Roy. You'll still be 7'2" next year.
Jeff Green will be a question mark for any NBA team he goes to. He has tons of upside, but is unpolished. He is inconsistent in the big games. Hopefully, he will go to a team that will commit to developing him. No matter what, he will bring a good work ethic and certain productivity to the team that drafts him. That is the mark of a Georgetown pro.
Roy Hibbert will certainly lead the Hoyas to another successful season. If Jeff had stayed, we would have been a certain number 1 or 2 preseason pick. But we'll still be in the mix. We've got Roy, Patrick Jr. and two All-Americans coming in. Other squads (cough, UNC) should be wary.
