    it's going to be interesting to see if when/if the FBI releases more stuff, the digging into the EYBL impacts Duke?

    Obviously being part of the national team has been huge for Coach K recruiting wise, but it's really just a Nike thing. The whole USA basketball program is Nike, all the coaches, trainers everybody is Nike.

    it became clear at one point the Bagley recruitment had shifted and he was going to a Nike school, he picked Duke. Barrett's final 4 was Arizona, Duke, UK and Oregon, all Nike, and then he cut Arizona over the FBI story. It will be interesting to see if Nike's domination of the elite kids continues if the FBI got any dirt from raiding the EYBL headquarters, Duke and UK have been cleaning up on kids from the EYBL for years now.

    I don't know if it's true or not, I don't think we will know anytime soon but given Trump's stance on Russia and the Philippines where he claimed to have had discussions that Putin and Duterte insist he didn't have, you have to wonder if he's just taking credit for this now that it appears they're going to let them go early?

    Just proves all the reports coming out of China were best guesses.

    There's an interesting school rule angle to it because China reduced the charges to the equivalent of misdemeanors, UCLA rules actually don't require them to do a long suspension or expel them. If a regular student commits a felony they're typically going to be expelled, a misdemeanor they might not even be suspended.

    Under the circumstances I still think if they did what the stories said they should all miss the whole season at least, but it's not clear what's going to happen.

    I'm glad they're coming home, I am not sure what I want to happen yet depends on what the true story is

    That will be interesting. It's now being reported that China dropped all charges, the players were not even officially deported, they will have no record, and presumably could return to China if they wanted to.

    Not clear but either the political intervention resulted in dropped charges or maybe there was some truth to the claim that they screwed up by arresting the 17 year old Hill as an adult and under their own rules had to release him?
