Can he win without a 7' 6" guy protecting the rim?

Noted AAU basketball coach Rick Isaacs joined host John Kelly to discuss UNLV's recent hiring of Marvin Menzies as the new head coach of the men's basketball program.

Isaacs, a close friend of Menzies, believes UNLV found the right man for the job as the 54-year-old Menzies becomes the first African-American head basketball coach at UNLV.

Sam Yip, a journalist based in southern California, reviewed the first week of the 2016 NBA postseason.

AAU coach?

That may be one of the few businesses more slimy than the tout business.

UNLV 4-0 SU 4-0 ATS
Such a bad year last year at UNLV
nice to see the great start.
The massive destructive damage that the disgusting dishonest person Robert Maxson inflicted on the city of Las Vegas and on Jerry Tarkanian and on UNLV basketball a long time ago is hard to quantify- but unfortunately it was huge.
......... (maybe I'm dreaming) if somehow now UNLV can be a powerhouse again it would be a great great occurrence for the city of Las Vegas and attendance could be or would be 18-19000 every game. It happened when Las Vegas had less than half of it's current population.

Those were great times...I was living there when the Thomas&Mack was built....tickets were at a premium....had to rely on ticket scalpers for home games....always could get tickets from Railbird and Basketball Bob....

Just a few years back they were averaging 14k with a solid team.

UNLV is not going to beat out UCLA and Arizona for kids. And it is getting tougher and tougher to beat out Oregon or Gonzaga (Oregon is the anomaly, the fans really don't care, maybe half the arena is full last year with a team that went to the Final Four, but Altman is putting guys in the league).

UNLV is currently in that second tier out west with about 10 other teams trying to get the same kids. Menzies doesn't have much experience putting guys in the NBA which hurts. Now if he were to hire a guy like Clint Parks or someone else who has developed kids and put them in the league.......

Just got off the phone with my good friend Rick Isaacs . Generally l have felt that the people in the Northeast have some of the most idiosyncratic and colorful gents in the U.S. Rick alone balances the geographic scales . Luv him , but don’t get it twisted - he ain’t all there

Not to c
The kid does not lack confidence.
Forgive the change topics but in Tues CBB the Diamond Head Tour, R.I. is playing Colorado. After two or 3 days of BB and sightseeing, both teams are tired. Look for strong def and some missed shots. Dont bet the favorite just because. Check stats and listen to analysts.

CBB Note; One other game in Hawaii Tourney. Ind. St v TCU. Favored TCU likely to win but Sycs will keep it close. Team with height will have edge on rebounds and def. Teamwork and passing more important than hogging the paint.Of course next week back on the mainland, hogging the paint could be counter strategy

One player coach Isaacs used to talk about a lot..... Rodney "Rocket" Henderson

I saw this guy a few years back in a JUCO showcase in Vegas and he was by far the best player on the floor. Then he went JUCO and had good numbers. Now he is at Cal State Northridge and I told myself before the season, "when this guy plays they are going to have a good ats record." He was injured the first few games of the year. In the games he has played they are 9-2 ats. I am the fukkin idiot who has only bet a couple of games.

There is real value in finding an under the radar Juco or freshman player who will come in and put up numbers.

Also of note is he is very good defensively.
