    It's going to be really hard...

    To tank in 4 years to grab the Mormon with the #1 after he gets his degree at duke. Especially with 4 All-stars on our team. Burks, favors, Hayward, and kanter that is.

    Has a LDS player ever been drafted #1 in NBA?

    That's obviously why Jimmer fell to number 10.

    I know these were said in jest, but in case anyone may take them as serious, Jabari will not stay 4 years at Duke. Jabari will not go #1 overall.

    Shawn Bradley was selected 2nd overall in 1993.

    That's ok, he had a very forgettable career.
    I stopped cheering for him when he $%^#@ over BYU. Made his decision while still on his mission (that's not right) and made it too late for BYU to recruit a center to replace him. BYU was expecting him to return to the team, held his spot open, and then he bailed. If he was going to think about other things and take care of personal business while on his mission, he should have made the decision early in the recruiting period. BYU coaches couldn't contact him; he should have had the decency to at least tell them he was seriously considering not returning.

    I'm glad Shaq made Bradley his personal whipping boy.

    Actually, I have to confess I had really high hopes for this thread based on the title.

    What's the deal with LDS players and missions, anyway? I don't recall Ainge doing it at any point during his NBA or college career. Or Chambers. Or Jimmer. Actually, I don't recall any other LDS player but Bradley taking time off to go on a mission.

    Aren't they mandatory?

    Missions aren't mandatory.

    Nor did Donny Osmond back in the day. Actually I should commend Bradley for going on a mission. Every young man is encouraged/expected to go on a mission, but it still comes down to individual choice. And it could be argued that when an LDS male is in the spotlight as much as an Ainge, Bradley, Steve Young, or Jimmer, etc., the visibility they give the LDS Church is far greater if they stay in that spotlight than if they go to some 3rd world country like Moscow, Idaho. Fame is fleeting. And being out of sports or music for 2 years might just mean an end to relevancy..
