    Thomas has another opportunity to shine today. Buckeyes can make a real statement.

    A Cav's second round pick?

  5. That's what I'm hoping for the Pistons. A good scorer off the bench if nothing else.

    I don't think he should leave unless he is going to go in the first round but I am not him because he has a young child.

    He will not leave if he is not a 1st rounder. I think DT will be back for his senior year.

    If he were to get drafted in round 2. he would most likely be playing overseas, but how much higher would he get drafted next year?

    Regarding next year that's really hard to say how much higher he would go because it would depend on how much he improved his game and how much others improved their games.

    I don't know how much his little one plays in his life because I have not read that much about him. However, if he does play a major role in DeShaun's life that would make it difficult for him to go and play in Europe IMO

    I guess he will have some tough decisions to make after the season is over.

    All I know is DT needs to quit camping out on the 3 point line and get some easy buckets in the paint like he did down the stretch vs. NW earlier tonight. Granted, there were more holes in that NW zone than there are in a slice of swiss cheese but OSU is at their best when he is inside making plays, there is movement around the bucket and guys are crashing the glass.....not standing around on the perimeter watching opponents rebound their missed outside contested jump shots.

    Now go steal one from IU next week.....GO BUCKS!!!!

    After what happened with William Buford, I hope he goes Pro. If Buford came out after his junior year, he's a mid first round pick. Turned out, he stayed and didn't get drafted at all.

    Saw a couple talking heads discussing him... and it made a TON of sense...
    They said he should go.. because his game will not change with another year.. he will be exact same.. his shot selection won't change.. his shooting won't change.. it's time for him to make the move

    Yep. DT needs to go before he gets over-exposed like Buford did.

    I don't get you guys at all. He's not going to be a first round pick this year. He's just not. He probably won't ever be one, but he should go because his stock isn't going up next year even though he's only a 2nd rounder at best now? C'mon now. Most guys who are in DT's situation (likely 2nd round at best) stay their Senior year - I know he has a child but I don't see any NBA stock negative in staying one more year. It would be kind of embarrassing to go "early" only to be a 2nd rounder/UDFA to not make the NBA when he could stay one more year and cement a legacy at OSU. He probably would've left last year if he thought he'd be a first round pick, and he was in the exact same situation then as he will be looking forward to next year.

    What talking heads are these? I sense they are not OSU-backers/analysts.
