Re: Bronny???

Thanks Phoenix.  Wouldn't that be a big boost for the DU Program?

Re: Bronny???

What a media  zoo the Bluff would be. Good or bad media exposure on a national scene would benefit Duquesne University.

Re: Bronny???

Bronny to Duquesne isn't happening, so let's not get carried away.  I don't think KD would want to leverage a friendship to bring this about.  It would be a "big ask" to try and ask Lebron to intervene based on their history.  Now if KD was coaching at UCLA, it would be a natural process to have Lebron's old friend coach Bronny.  He is looking at UCLA, USC, Oregon and OSU.  Lebron is with Nike, so it will most likely be a Nike school and Oregon is the original Nike school. I know Duquesne is a Nike school too,  but not in the same arena as these guys.  

The sideshow is interesting in that if you read some of the scouting reports on Bronny, he has some good qualities but is not as big or powerful as Lebron, so he may end up as a combo guard.  His shot is still a "work in progress", but he is said to have great court presence and instincts for the game (no surprise).  If he was another guy not named James, he might be a 4-star; but not one of the top players in the nation at this point; but his value is so great because of the buzz; and top players that will follow him to the program he selects.

Re: Bronny???

KD should most certainly reach out, let LeBron know if his kid is looking to go off the well beaten path of the ucla/duke/kansas route of a one and done, consider coming to DU for a year, LeBron would know his kid will be taken care of by KD personally.   This might be the last time DU can ever be relevant across the nation again.   And the kid would not be overwhelmed with cameras and media.   Its Duquesne/Pittsburgh, after a week, no one would care.   Gotta talk about Kenny or Crosby all the time.

Just saying…. 2 of these 7 names honored at the LeBron James building on the Nike campus are now on the Duquesne coaching staff.

Re: Bronny???

Thanks, CLK.  First, that was a nicely produced video introducing Dru Joyce.  Secondly, having that intro retweeted by LeBron reaching his 52 million followers on Twitter is unbelievable.  Already, that video has been viewed over 87,000 times (I wonder if that's a record for any Duquesne produced social media content; as a comparison, the last video posted by Duquesne Basketball got 534 views).  Nice!!

Edited 8/22, now up to 310,000 views.

Re: Bronny???

I think the chances of Bronny coming are almost non-existent.  I almost would rather he doesn't.  Seems like Lebron and KD/Dru have a good relationship right now and I think the chances are greater of that getting worse rather than improving if he played at DU.  Lebron has done a lot for the program just with his influence as noted above and if he keeps doing that, I would be happy.

Why isn't this information not sent to PSN? Possibly missed the story? Better than reading the "Pitt Sports All-The-Time Daily News" brought to you by PSN.
 


I may not approve of what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
