Macon should get his degree to have in his back pocket. I think he should come back because his game got better as the year progressed.  I honestly think he can work his way into a second round pick.  He has some things to work on that can be achieved over a summer of hard work and dedication.  I don't think it's a catastrophic decision if he were to leave but not the best.

And by the way, one will go to Germany next year to play his last of his 14 years.  He'll be 36, coming back to the US with a wife and 2 kids and will not have to work another day in his life.

If that is true, he invested well and resisted the spendthrift urge. Good for him. I hate it when athletes make a ton of money, then lose it because of poor choices, bad advice, leeches, etc.

Best of luck to him. Hopefully he can be a positive influence on other professional athletes, regardless of where they end up playing.

How the hell can he do that?  I guarantee I make twice what the highest euro guys make.  I'm 42 and still having to work full time for the next 20 years.  He must have played in the NBA some to make that kind of money.

This is just an ignorant post. The highest paid euro players make over $1million. You make twice that?

If you truly get a good deal overseas like the ones I know did, then it does not take long to save up.  Even jusy $45-50K/yr with a car and apartment paid for nets you at least $25k/yr. If Mizzouman's player made at least that for 14 years he is coming back with $350k+. My guess is if you are in your 14th year overseas, you will probably make more if you are a halfway decent American player.

Returning to the subject of Macon, I see in another thread that Qualls is playing in Israel. Do we think Macon is better than Qualls? What is his likely destination if he goes overseas (which we are told a couple of posts ago won't happen anyway)?

That's a great question, Qualls definitely has better athleticism and defense. Qualls also is a better scorer when he's on and quite a bit longer.

Macon is a much better all around player though, and is a much more "pure" shooter.  If Macon was closer to Qualls size and hops, I have no doubt he would probably be drafted this year.

And there is a difference between a shooter and scorer, and you can be both if that makes sense.

Seriously? There are over 35 players making over $1.2M a year in the European League, with the highest paid player making $3.4M.  Come on man.

The tweets from April 29 are irrelevant now. I'm curious why you didn't post anything of his tweets back and forth between him and Barford about 4 on 4 and 5 on 5 games to hundred?

Don't want to show that he is connected?

Hmmmm...you're clearly trying to pick a fight.

All I did was show more of his tweets.  As you can see from yesterday...even he said he doesn't know for sure.  People are acting like his tweet is official news.  I also said I hope he's right.

I'm aware he is a radio personality as well as a friend to many current and former Hogs. 

What's your issue?

To me it appeared you only picked the tweets that only supported the point you were trying to make. Especially going back to April 29th to disprove his tweet from yesterday. Instead of presenting all sides.

That I have a problem with.

I posted all the tweets I could find where Nick Mason commented on the subject of Macon/Barford leaving.   

I don't know why anyone would not want Macon back.  I even said I hope Mason is correct in his tweet.  My point is that even Mason said yesterday he doesn't know what he will do...only that he thinks he knows what he will do.  So basically, we are still in the same boat we were before the tweet.

Hopefully Macon ends our suspense soon.  We need both he and Barford back if we want to dance again.

If you make twice as much as the highest euro guy, then first, congrats, then second, if you still have to work full time for the next 20 years, you're not doing something correctly.

I have no idea what Qualls makes, but I am sure him tearing his ACL and then getting arrested for marijuana probably hurt his stock in any league he was trying to get into. The ACL probably more than the other overseas, though.

But these players won't pay this.  The teams take very good care of them.  They won't pay rent, utilities, gas or for even a car.  All that is part of the deal. 


You again, are assuming that everything is ideal and that all teams follow through.  That all too often, is not the case.  You are making a HUGE leap by grouping all players and all contracts into the same bucket.  A guy that has played in the NBA and a guy that was not drafted or even considered for the draft, will be treated completely differently.  No offense but guys like these are a dime a dozen.

You have not read ALL my post on this subject have you?  I said that I'm assuming these players have done their due diligence.  If they know they can secure a favorable contract in Europe, then go.  If they cannot, then stay.

Furthermore, in general, most posters think that Euro players are somehow living in poverty.  Maybe a small percentage are, but, again in general, they are well taken care of one way or another.

Now, if these two players have not done their homework and they sign a bad euro contract, that's on them.  If the best they can do is a bad euro contract, they should come back.
