Read his interview with Inside Blazer, He specifically states he doesn't want to be the go to guy. He wants to go to a team with Good leadership and skilled veteran players.

I would love to see him go to unc.
If Henderson announces he's going pro I think duke will be out of it.
From what I have read, he keeps saying now that He will choose the school, clifton could be becoming out of the picture.
I just have a gut feeling that he will end up in carolina blue.
He comes to unc, he takes over the reigns at starting pg in a fast-pace system that shows off what he is best at. He wants to go to a team that has veterans and chance of winning, (I have heard from high rams club members that are saying they have heard rumors that ellington would come back) along with davis and ginyard you have vets and talent to win.
Him just not pulling the trigger and committing anywhere makes me think he will be a heel. He has been and visited all these schools that he says he likes but still has yet to commit to a school this late. He has visited unc Several times the last few years and I have heard that he was a unc fan growing up. Could he just be waiting on a certain offer?

As far as drew being unhappy, give me a break.
The kid was just a freshman, I guess that rumor started around the same place the "zeller to transfer" started. Wall will be a one and done type player, and will bring them another chance to win it all. What player on a team wouldn't want to win back to back championships. Drew sat behind the Best pg in the ncaa this year as a freshman. If wall comes in, drew will still get more minute than last year. Then when wall leaves drew will Still have 2 years to lead the team (Marshall will be Good but an upperclassmen like drew will get the nod at the starting position).

I went to Portland to watch that USA - World game. Wow, not only did he put points on the board, but he just opened up the field, I don't have the exact number, but his +/- score must have been high.

Hey, prick! I have an opinion and the right to express it...I don't attack you or anyone else on here. I'm not that thrilled about the Wall deal, but I also do not know all the issues regarding his handler (Clifton) and neither do you...What I do know is the kid can play and would be great leading the break in CH.

I trash K because he's an arrogant, selfish prick who obviously teaches his players to hack, smack, foul and assault. Do you need me to post pics to prove my point?

As for my credibility? HAHAHAHA! IT'S A MESSAGE BOARD, MORON!


Haha. Complete meltdown on a message board. I love it. And none of it had anything to do with what i said.

Htar is like this message board's little brother. I have come to peace with the fact that when he posts it is for humor sake now. I honestly dont think he trys to be a d*ck to anyone, but some of his posts just put him in a sticky situation. For example, this thread. I was the one who posted that some Carolina fans would be backtracking now that Roy got involved a couple weeks ago, credit to Htar he seemed to stay strong for a little while, but now with this post, it basically says "I don't care if John Wall comes with baggage or is a me-first player, I want him to be a Heel, because he is really good".

I really don't think you can argue with that assumption people have of you now, Htar. But the problem is you didnt have to make yourself look like that. John Wall IS a pretty good kid, he ISN'T a me-first player, you can like him and not feel bad about it. The problem came about when you, like other fans, immeaditly jumped all over Duke for recruiting him. You should have known it was only a matter of time before Carolina got involved, look back in history, Duke and Carolina constantly go after the same players. It is going on with Harrison Barnes right now as well. Duke has been all over that kid for awhile now, he has visited Duke twice on his own, but now Roy has put Roscoe Smith on hold and said Harrison is his top target for 2010.

This really goes back to the whole arguement that comes up with most fan bases when a recruit is considering their school the recruit is "good kid, great prospect, well respected, etc." when that recruit doesnt decide to go to their school he suddenly becomes "over-rated, me-first attitude, bad academics, etc."


I really enjoy getting a rise out you dookies, but in the end, and as for the topic, I'm not happy about the WALL SITUATION...Roy didn't start recruiting as a late decision, he did not want to deal with Clifton and Clifton is evidently out of the picture...I don't have much respect for his academic school or credentials, but he is a talent.

As for Barnes, I really believe Roy is wasting his time, and he must not be in love with Smith's game as he could've had him already.

Well you clearly melted down cause you went on a rant that had nothing to do with what i said and after that you went to name calling. Then you went on about Coach k teaching his kids to hack. Please post the picks. You can find what 5 pics? The same 5 pics you UNC fans pull out every year. At least come up with some new poo for once. % pics for how many games has he coached? Yeah he really teaches hacking. You really don't get under my skin cause everything you post is funny. It never makes sense and then when you get called out you back track.

I haven't heard that Wall was a selfish player, but I do agree that if Lawson comes back Wall will not get an offer and even if Wall did get an offer he wouldn't take it. From all I've read while following this recruitment, Wall does want to play on a team with veterans...but I highly doubt he would commit to a team with a veteran PG already entrenched as the starter. Honestly, the best situation for him right off the bat would be dook, but only because they don't have any good PG's, certainly no where near his level. Drew for Carolina is a work in progress and we'll have to see how much he progresses over the summer, but Wall would probably get more minutes than him were he to play for UNC.

And I haven't heard anything about Drew or his family being upset with Roy...that sounds a lot like the bullshit posts (on other boards) about Zeller wanting to transfer to IU.

The Cliftons are DEFINITELY not out of the picture. You think they would hang around Wall for the last 6-7 years and then right before he goes to the league they are cut out? You must be dreaming...wherever John goes, Brian Clifton goes. Roy got into this because he panicked when he saw that he was the only triangle coach not recruiting the best player to come out of this area since who?? I can't think of a player out of the triangle with this much hype. If Wall goes to Duke or NC State then UNC isn't the best team in the triangle anymore (unless Lawson comes back which I don't see happening). I don't care what anyone says...John Wall is that good.

And we all know how Carolina fans take ONE "down" season and losing to their rivals...they start telling their coach to go back where he came from.

Roy panicked? I don't think so.
