Washington appears to be the "headliner" of this agency.  Look forward to reading about them going out of business any day now.

Wow, I bet teams will be lining up at their door to get at their client list.

A center who's soft, a point guard who can't (or won't) pass, and an overall team cancer.  That's quite a lineup.

Does anyone believe that Fortson is going to stick around and finish the semester and leave in goo academic standing?

I don't. Part of Phel's contract that deals with "termination with cause" is a lose of scholarship due to APR. That would let the UofA loff the hook concerning buyouts and make it a much cheaper proposition. This is on Phel, Courtney belongs to him along with the rest of those first two washed out recruiting classes thats hit the APR.

Fortson will be tougher somewhere else. His passing ability is very good and will showcase with a team he has confidence in.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but the next two year cycle for APR should be all Pel's.  Maybe Long's had the termination for cause/ no buyout plan on his mind all along.  If we have to suffer through another year like the last two we damned sure shouldn't have to pay him a buyout for the privilege.

That point guard who can't or won't pass led the SEC in assists this year and has one of two triple doubles in Arkansas history.  I really don't get the basketball aMm-talk towards Fortson.  His freshman year, he was a pure point guard until the rest of the team gave up.  Since he never gave up, he ended up trying to win games himself.  His sophomore year, lather rinse repeat.

I'm aware he has dreadlocks and smokes weed and makes faces and writes horribly indecent twitter updates and doesn't play like John Stockton, but the kid has played like a pure point guard every time his teammates have helped him out, and has put the team on his back when they didn't.  If ya'll have a beef with how the kid plays, you need to talk to his dumbassed coach. He's a Starkville of a talented player, and could have been an all-time great Razorback with some help and a decent coach.

The turnovers is what kills me...as a point guard you can't get lazy with the ball. Now some of that is attributed to his teammates not keeping up with what dude is doing but a lot of it was him driving too deep into the paint and then trying to dish.

I agree with much of what you say but it is mainly on Fortson that he was an unreliable free throw shooter.   I also would normally question how much coaching he takes based on the petulant behavior I would see on the bench and all of those incidents of him standing outside of the huddle, seemingly pouting but for the fact that the other two clients of this dopey agent displaying the same behavior.

Nolan and Eddie AND Mike Anderson must just feel like crying when they see how Pelphrey appears to be so helpless as a game coach.  Stan Heath must feel like Dean Smith when he watches Pelphrey basketball.

I agree the turnovers suck.  Probably a third of them are passes that bounce off shitty post-players' hands, and God knows the numbers get jacked up every time Fortson tries to become LeBron, though.  I don't think his numbers would be that bad for a soph, TO-wise, if he was playing the role he played the first half of his freshman season all the time, though.  If you look through his game-by-game stats for his time here, there is almost a direct correlation where the more assists he had, the less turnovers he had.  He's had 10 or more assists 5 times, and in only one of those did he have more than 5 turnovers, meanwhile he's had less than 5 assists 17 times, and he had more TOs than assists in 14 of those 17 games (twice had 4 of each, once he had 4 assists, 1 TO).  That tells me that when his teammates are helping out, he's much less of a turnover machine.  I don't think he'll ever get meaningful minutes in the league, but it wouldn't shock me if he got drafted in the second round just on potential.  He's awful short, but if the right system got ahold of him, he could be a decent PG at the next level.  It would take a very good fit, though, because he hasn't been developed at all at this level.

Point:

He made a huge difference on this team.


Counterpoint:

We sucked anyways.




Hopefully he does well in his professional endeavors. It was fun watching him play... just a shame he came through a forgettable era of Arkansas basketball.

Maybe for the Texass 5A state football champion.  No way our basketball team wins 15 games next year.  No way.

You look through the NBA and back up point guards aren't your flashy try to do too much type guys...most of them are just real steady don't be a hero type guys. Fortson has a long ways to go in order to be an NBA player but I have no doubt he has the talent...it's the other intangibles he has to master in order to really even get a serious shot. I'm not very optimistic he will be drafted but much might depend on if he impresses in these combines and what not.

Well this just keeps getting better.  Via the twitters...

SportsTalkwBo 
Forton's agent said he is going to finish the semester with online classes and try not to hurt Arkansas' APR


Yeah, that ones pretty funny by itself.  But then...

SportsTalkwBo
Charles Briscoe also reps Mike Washington and Stef Welsh, but says they have quit school and will finish later
