The Haley Twins: Two guys, but one player. Good for four points and ten fouls a game.
Kim English and Marcus Denmon: I can never forgive them for losing to Norfolk ****ing State.
Travis Ford: Leaving Missouri to go to Kentucky. I'm sure his heritage as a Tiger will mean a first round loss for OSU in the NCAA..
Clarence Gilbert: Never saw a three point shot he didn't like. Shot 18 of them in one NCAA tournament game VS. UCLA.
English and Denmon is just fresh; you'll look back on them fondly.
Man, I can't get behind the Gilbert hate. I know, he loved him some 3 pointers, but even on the days he didn't hit, he played ferocious defense and refused to let his teammates quit. He was a great leader, good defender, good passer and when he was on, dynamite scorer.
No, he wasn't perfect, but he was essentially a much better version of Thomas Gardner. I can't hate that guy.
