What NBA team would spend a first round pick on Bradley, Brown or what's his face after what they showed this season? What they all showed was the need for maturation, team concept and defensive intensity to match their supposed blue chip talent. Not too many of the Longhorns opponents rolled over and quit just because the blue bloods showed up to play. My advice for them all? Take a page from the A&M playbook and bring your lunch pails to practice next year. Show you can win at the college level before you take up space in the NBA Development League. I am still haunted by the "hot-shot cross over dribble, put my shoulder into the defender and get called for an offensive foul" by Brown in the waning moments of the Wake game. That was the time to play it by the book, milk the clock, work for a shot or a foul down low and secure the win, not the time for polishing your own hood ornament. His bewildered smile after the call was just icing on the cake. Love the Horns, hate the me-first attitude.
