I thought he'd make a ton of progress next year here. He was probably always just going to be an overseas pro player anyway so I guess it's probably a good decision for him. I figured that it was a 0% chance that Shine was coming back.
Shine and Sima would have played important roles next year, but looking on the bright side, it gives Boynton and his staff a chance to go get better players. Graduate transfers, foreign players and the JUCO ranks could yield some good talent. Keep your fingers crossed. I have faith in this coaching staff.
They are playing overseas. Can you read? Nobody in their right mind thinks they are playing pro ball in the U.S. alot of people forget a solid college player..many can play some pro ball overseas. Not all but whole lot more.
I don’t get it. Neither are developed enough to make a roster spot in the NBA. The G-League doesn’t pay well. After bills, probably be better off on scholarship. Sure you could go over seas, and make enough to live, maybe put a little away. - That’s if you’re special. Get your degree while it’s paid for then go get paid. It’s a numbers game that favors the few.
That said, I wish them the best and hope they prove me wrong and are great representatives of this university.
