    I wonder how Mack found out about him, or even how you would know one of these kids is interested in US college instead of European pro ball.
    Maybe our guys who play in Europe keep an eye out and send messages back.
    Dunno. Another board member mentioned that Aris is the same club for which Torraye Braggs played (but that was about 10 years ago).

    I was vacationing recently at Lagonissi, saw the kid play, asked a few questions and gave Chris a call.

    From my understanding (and apparently Mack's as well) this guy's situation is very different from Kanter's.

    Don't think Mack hops over the pond in the middle of conference battles, midweek, to recruit a guy he ain't pretty sure he can get and can help him.

    Agreed. Thats a lot of effort and time to take on a big chance, when both of those resources could be put elsewhere just as easily. The kid must be worth it.

    It's some sort of weird karma.

    Lose a Dez, gain a Vez.

    (please don't start with any what if's here)
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Why not? Could you imagine if Dez were still here, we got this Vezenkov guy and he was a future NBA All Star, and David West was born 12 years later? With Semaj getting better and better, that would be one hell of a team, as long as Matta, Miller and Mack could get them all the jell right away.

    I would hope so. I was more commenting on what the understanding of the rule was, which I have no idea. But that is good news.
