Doubt he made that comment as a regret for leaving one year early. Just three words posted to compliment a pretty cool video clip.

He always post that he misses college. He also always post he misses high school. Nothing more nothing less.

I am sure he misses college just like the rest of us.

But, it must be a little different when you go from being "the man" at Madison Square Garden to being unsure of your next opportunity to play in a meaningful basketball game. I certainly wouldn't know from experience, but I always think that must be a difficult adjustment for some of these players.

I actually learned that Justin Burrell is making a boatload of money playing abroad - enough to make guys like Simon and Ponds take notice that you don't have to play in the NBA to make a lot of money.

I believe Dwight Hardy has also done well.

You just learned that? Here's a list of STJ's guys plaing in pro leagues. Check out the list of guys active in 2018/19/20. And pretty much everyone who was a regular starter is playing on a team that is in the top division in the country they're living in. If these guys don't know by the time they reach HS that there is enough money to be made playing hoops internationally then they aren't paying attention. They may not make millions (though some do), but they also don't have to take real jobs. LOL

PS guys who make very good livings internationally include DJ, Dlo, PGIV, Justin, Evans, Marcus, even Lamont is still making money in Japan and Geno was signed by a Greek team this year. And the Euros are doing fine as well including Mussini, Amar and Freudenberg.

Not the point. ANYONE who plays D1 basketball can make a salary overseas. JB is making in the 500K range, which is a good salary for anywhere, not just to pay the bills as you see the world.
