    If Hud would give his players more damn support, maybe they'd get more combine invites.

    But in all seriousness, what the hell NBA?

    I doubt he received an NBA invite. I also am skeptical that he will get drafted. A lot hinges on him having a great workout with a team that brings him in.

    He's not getting drafted. While not everybody on this list will declare for the draft, he's still not going to get that call, especially since he wasn't brought in to work out for the combine.

    There's a lot of talented players across the country.

    He could still have a great workout for a tam and get drafted. Orien Greene was drafted without attending the combine.

    Shawn's lack of effort and poor work ethic will keep him out of the NBA.

    I thought we had gotten past this rumor.

    OK---if you are recruiting in a time capsule---would you rather get EP or Long??? Who had the better UL career?

    Nobody from Funbelt. If this doesn't work out, Europe may be calling.

    Coach let him play on the outside a lot this year. Probably would have to play there in the league. I guess he did not impress the guys that know what to look for. He is definitely one of our all time greats. There are a lot of players and only a few slots to fill.

    Where was Orien Greene's draft stock at that time? Long's unfortunately is not that high.

    I don't think that narrative fits him anymore. Maybe when he first got here but he's improved his game and slimmed down in the last couple of years and I don't remember seeing him sulk much either. I just think Shawn is a product of an expanding game where you now have tons of europeans now eligible for the draft and an ever expanding recruiting reach to those areas where our scouts have access to grade them.

    Am I making this choice as a college talent scout or an NBA talent scout? It makes a huge difference. The NBA evaluates what they need for the NBA. You cannot look at what EP offers and the massively different skillset Long offers. That said, teams must be considering how Shawn fits into the NBA. I consider someone that is 6'11" and athletic as somewhat like a pitcher that can throw 95mph. The NBA is "considering" Shawn Long. Personally... and this is not because I'm a Cajun fan... I'd seriously want to work Shawn out and take a strong look at what I could teach up and use in the NBA.

    That's a very good point. The NBA worldwide feeder system is for real. I still think Shawn is a candidate for NBA consideration. He's just too tall, big and athletic to ignore. There's something peculiar about Shawn. I believe the right group of men could get more out of him.

    Long had better UL career. But, if EP stays a fourth year. His stats would be phenomenal. Both are candidates to have their jersey retired.

    Why is a Boomer question that really makes no sense to the OP getting this much attention?

    His question is much like Tyrell Fenroy versus Louis Age. Louis Age made it in the NFL. Tyrell did not. Which one had the bigger UL career? What difference did that make to the NFL?
