  • It has been a great year for JOB and he has had an even better SEC run. Good for him. Still very hopeful he stays at LSU another year.

  • Thoughts on that now that the season is over? It was probably about a month ago that he hinted to reporters that this may well be his final season.

  • It's definitely up in the air for me. I do not think he is ready yet. I think staying next year would give him a better payday, even with the unusually light class this year holds. However I can see both sides of it. I had heard from an inside source recently that he was thinking he would be coming back to LSU, but obviously I think things are not solid right now. He seems happy with his life right now (twitter) and looks like he enjoys the system, so I am not sure if the NBA is a move he will make yet.

    I do not know the family situation or his financial situation, but I do not believe he is one of the players with a kid, so I think LSU covers you pretty alright for another year.
