Are you joking - did you see any games this year?

Those two got the shaft with very inconsistent minutes and head scratching rotations. If anything Baldwin was probably the most likely to LEAVE if DK stayed here.
In Matt McCall I trust!

I think that would have been Donte... anyway I'm really happy for him and I hope he makes the most of it.. it would be a pretty big drop in league level if any of our guys followed. Although I'm sure DK would love it because he would have his dominant player to win with.

Dominant? You mean they guy he basically benched for the last few games of the season? :roll:

I think everyone stays. Baldwin and Flowers could potentially be a candidate for NEC POY by their junior season though. It all comes down to next season and how much they enjoy playing under McCall.

Once again, congrats DK!

I wonder if he'll try to woo Donte. He could dominate that league and build his stock.

Donte could dominate in the A-10, the question has always been whether he has the drive to do so. But I agree that he would be able to put up superior numbers with less effort in the NEC.

If Donte follows DK to Brooklyn then he is not serious about having professional aspirations.

Saying the right things, explaining how his team will play. Would have been nice if it worked in Amherst.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

He seemed very nervous and uncomfortable.

Good luck to DK, hope he tears the league up!

Tells me how much DK must love coaching to jump right back in when he could have kicked back and enjoyed his wealth.
