Jefferson knows a ton about college ball and they are chatting away for an hour , with a great deal about SJU. Jefferson turns to my son and says someone told me that an assistant coach on SJU used to be an NBA all star and asks if that is true. My son replies in the affirmative and tells him Mitch was a part of TMC with Hardaway and Mullin. Jefferson was flabbergasted and replied he never knew that. Shameful how we never marketed such a fabulous attribute to potential recruits.
By the way Jefferson’s family is from Guinea and he told us Moussa of CTK, and our very own Keita , are also from Guinea , and Jeff and Moussa speak daily and are best of friends. Told us they went to MM together last fall. Said Moussa may be moving this season.


Great stuff! You earned your Karma points for the month!;)

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

how long was he actually in the building :)


Sounds funny but actually a very serious question. Sometimes I feel the under-the-table agreement with MR is tied to the Slice salary. It's as if Slice's 600k was prorated for Mitch's time spent physically at St. John's. In effect it is like Mitch said "if Slice was worth 600k for 12 months work, I'm worth 250k for 6 months". In effect, he is Mullin's Al LoBalbo.:P ;)

Yeah NCJ, I'd love to see him in a St. John's uniform also.
Actually surprised, he's not yet 'ranked' by the major recruiting services---or I've missed it.
Guessing he will be soon.

Rankings are fun, but vary greatly. To me the best barometer is a list of schools who have legitimately offered a kid. Gaffney is one example.

I wonder if Figgy knows him? Both are Dominicans and both are from MA. Dunno, but could be.
