    CJ versus Hankins

    I don't know how many of you follow twitter, but there has been some back and forth between CJ Anderson and Hankins. For some reason it won't let me post the links. The gist is that CJ thinks Hankins is overrated because unlike CJ, he didn't make the Big Dance. They exchanged some minor insults and then began trading barbs about their careers.... It's all very... strange.

    In true CJ fashion he's declared himself the winner with the hashtag #ThePeoplesChamp
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Hope this little dust up doesn't effect our recruitment of Paul McMillan at Woodward....certainly CJ wouldn't get in his ear with anything negative about X over this, right?

    I mean, for some odd reason Dante got himself involved and sided with Hankins...sheez!

    Considering CJ is the one that started the whole conversation, I wouldn't think so. Hankins didn't come after him out of the blue from what I read. I don't know what kind of relationship CJ has with this staff.

    Considering CJ played at Xavier, and is one of the coaches of one of the most sought after guards in the country, let's hope its a good relationship.

    CJ's somewhat of a controversial figure around X basketball.

    I assume Dante involved himself because he coached Hankins last year. CJ Anderson is kind of a weird dude.

    He has a pretty solid point. I mean, CJ did a great job recruiting Drew Lavender, Derrick Brown, Josh Duncan, BJ Raymond, Stanley Burrell and Jason Love to come to Xavier and play with him. Hankins recruited Ryan Welage to come play at Xavier with him. Game, set, match Anderson.

    But Dante was a teammate for both years CJ played, including the '08 E8. One would think that trumps coaching a guy for 6 months....but maybe they didn't get along.

    I would say just the opposite. A coach is going to be much more protective of someone they coached than someone they played with.

    CJ Anderson is one of my favorite Twitter Follows. He simply stated he holds transfers to a high standard, and didn't think Hankins tenure on the team was very noteworthy...given the way the season ended. I've enjoyed the back and forth, and don't think CJ is taking it as seriously as others. He has said nothing derogatory about X during this exchange of words, and believes his E8 and S16 seasons were better than Hankins' season that ended in the NIT.

    Tough to argue with that logic. I would take Hankins on a Xavier team any day of the week, but his one season at X was less than memorable. His performance was solid as an individual, and he made the team better as the season progressed, but they didn't play in the NCAA tournament, which is the standard for every X team.
