I want to know what you readers think. It seems like a simple issue, but consider the following:
- Trent has finished his education and has graduated (or will soon) from BYU
- He has hired an agent and was invited to work out at the NBA combine in Orlando
- In that combine he failed to significantly improve his stock, and right now sits on the first round bubble
The reports out of the combine pretty much say the same thing we've known for years: Trent Plaisted is an athletic big man who runs the floor well, but lacks aggressiveness around the rim and a tough inside presence. He's also a horrible FT shooter.
So my question to you guys, then, is this:
Why did Trent Plaisted enter the NBA draft, especially since he has no guarantee of getting picked in the first round?
Is he just sick of BYU? Does he truly feel like he'll break into the first round and the guaranteed money that brings? Is it purely ego?
This is your turn now, and I want thoughtful answers people! And you people who have been reading and not commenting? It's time to step up to the plate and say something. Write it out.
