Everything is a crap-shoot this year with all of the transfers going on, especially for UNLV with all of the changes to....well everything. Everything that could be said has already been said but another good transfer with experience is always welcome.

Arizona State is a dumpster fire right now.  They lost their best player to Kansas.

Dumpster fire is when you lose everybody on your roster from the previous year.

That would really depend on what you lost. We lost 3 guys.

Maybe. Maybe not.

I'm sure our rookie coach with a few years of assisting experience will be able to bring everybody together.

But we couldn't get much worse.

You could if TJ & ISU hadn't gifted you.

It's probably going to be a rough couple of years even if KK ends up being a good coach.

Kevin Kruger will need to do well with HS recruiting.

“The portal is going to go all the way probably through the end of July,” Kruger said.

What are the chances that Kruger is holding spots for someone who is entered in the NBA Draft such as Bryce Hamilton, Austin Reeves or another unknown player?

The NCAA has tabbed July 7 as the withdrawal date for the 2021 NBA Draft, according to CBS Sports Jon Rothstein.

What about all the UNLV bums that are planning on playing in Europe? You guys seem to have a few dozen NBA washouts that slide their way into obscurity overseas..

Hoping KK can save them for the 2021 Final 4 run. Or was that next year?

Looks like this guy is available for UNLV.

If he doesn’t go to UNLV, he was just a lazy bum that isn’t Vegas material. 

If he’s lucky enough to get an offer from KK, he’s a shoe in for the NBA hall of fame. Depending on his eligibility, he could be part of this season’s final 4 run or the championship team next year. 
 
I’m not sure why he ever considered a disaster like Nevada.

Possible. Also looking to the future with Trae Young jr.?

Analysis: Justin Webster’s varied offense should benefit UNLV

https://lasvegassun.com/news/2021/may/27/analysis-justin-websters-varied-offense-should-ben/

The thing to like about Webster is the varied offensive game. He’s not a star scorer or No. 1 option, but as a complementary player he’s got just about everything you’d want: he’s an ace spot-up shooter, he can beat close-outs, he can keep the ball moving and he can even run the offense a little bit. In contrast to fellow incoming wing Donovan Williams, who is all athleticism and little polish, Webster is all skill.

So what is the starting five look like now?

2021/22 UNLV Starting Five

Jordan McCabe/Keshon Gilbert

Mike Nuga/Justin Webster/Josh Baker

Bryce Hamilton/Donovan Williams

Royce Hamm Jr/Victor Iwaukor

David Muoka

 

I think I would go with:

Keshon Gilbert, Mike Nuga, Justin Webster, Bryce Hamilton and Royce Hamm Jr.

This is the good news we have been quietly hoping for this past month. With the new lineup I expect Bryce to be much more efficient. Last year he seemed very mature and patient while trying to let the team work through the offense until the point where he had to take over. He should get much more help this year and not need to go 1 on 3 when everyone else froze up.

Big news!
