Originally written April 21, 2013 on Taking Bad Schotz:
The choice to enter the draft or stay at school can be easy or hard. For some guys, they are just looking to jump ship and join the NBA. For others, the decision can take weeks. Miami Hurricanes point guard Shane Larkin is trying to make the choice, but his time is running out. To me, the answer is obvious. via Associated Press The U had a great season no doubt, but this year’s team will be nothing like last year. The Hurricanes had one of the oldest team’s this year and almost all of the stars on the team have graduated and moved on. As a point guard, the guys surrounding you play a huge part in your success. If Larkin stayed, he would have to develop a relationship with a whole starting lineup and wouldn’t have that familiarity that most guys develop after playing multiple seasons together. I think this and the fact that Miami will probably come back to earth next year makes the decision to leave even easier. And if Larkin is still not convinced, the draft’s No. 1 point guard and probable No. 2 overall pick, Marcus Smart, is staying at Oklahoma State another year, which vaults Larkin up to either the No. 2 or 3 point guard in the draft. Larkin’s draft stock is at an all-time high right now and all the pieces around him are lining up to vault him into the lottery. As of now, Larkin has yet to decide on what he wants to do. The decision seems simple to me. Enter the draft. -Stanley
