Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

More reasons why Roy stays at UW

Hopping on the post Colin wrote yesterday, a few players have now declared for the draft. They include Charlie Villanueva of UConn, Ike Diogu from Arizona St, and Andrew Bogut of Utah. These are three of the type of players who easily beat Roy and Robinson in the first round. Frankly, I just don't feel that there are enough slots in a senior-heavy college game for Roy or Robinson to have a guaranteed spot in the first round. Think of the others... Wayne Simien, Keith Langford, Aaron Miles from Kansas. Francisco Garcia from Louisville. Luther Head from Illinois. Salim Stoudamire and Channing Frye from Arizona. Sean May and Rashad McCants from UNC. This is off the top of my head... twelve players better than Brandon Roy and Nate Robinson. That doesn't count other players that could declare early like Sheldon Williams, Eric Williams, JJ Redick, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Dee Brown, Marvin Williams, high school prospects, European prospects... there just aren't enough spots to fit in a talented swingman with knee problems and a five foot nothing guard who has never proven himself as a point guard. Hopefully they can do the math too.
