KD playing for Texas on ESPN2 right now- 2007 Big XII Title Game

Recommended Posts

It doesn't end well, but my god KD was something else that day. 

edit: it was actually the week before vs KU when KD dropped 25 in the 1H where he was truly unbelievable, but he was great this day as well, just a little less efficient.

Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers, Darrell Arthur, Julian Wright, Sascha Kaun...this KU team is bringing back some memories.

damn, i forgot what it was like watching Texas play like this- specifically the way we press the gas and get up and down. Damion James is grabbing made Kansas baskets as they fall through the net and then immediately hitting DJ with the outlet pass. We have the ball on KU's side of the court 1.5 seconds into the shot clock. insane difference to what we've been watching lately. 

edit: i also miss Ron Franklin.

Texas now up 32-10. KU has missed *everything* thus far, even from point blank range. they can't buy a bucket, and we aren't letting them get a rebound either. meanwhile we can't miss. DJ, AJ, and KD hace just been swishing everything left and right. Amazing.

Anyway, this is about the time to stop watching, lol, but if ESPN/LHN ever decides to replay this again, the first 12 minutes of the 1H are just beautiful.

Love KD, but cannot believe we lost that game.  That one and the 2001 game where we didn't score a single field goal for the last 11 minutes or so.  It's pretty fucking hard to go 0-6 in the conference tourney finals, even with Kansas in 4 of those games.  We just fucked up some of those games with some kinda special (granted the '06 and '11 games were just straight up beat-downs).  But man, we were so close to so much more hardware.  Anyway, hope KD gets better---we know he will.  But hard to believe over the course of 11 seasons, we played for 6 conference tournament championships, still the second most in the league.  And here we are wondering how much money we have go give Shaka Smart to leave us alone at the next picnic.

I really wish LHN would broadcast more of our close losses in high leverage games. Seeing them again through clearer eyes really highlights how a fre changes here or there would've changed things.

Quarantined, rewatching this game on YouTube with a couple cocktails in hand. 47.7 remaining we're up by 4 and probably should've had the ball on a dubious out of bounds call, how in the absolute fuck did we lose this game? Once thing that this quarantined recapture of Texas basketball has taught me is that we're fucking cursed. 

2011 rewatch of our NCAA tournament loss to Arizona.  Why tha fuck did Jordan Hamilton call timeout with 12 fucking seconds left up by 2 after rebounding a miss with no opponents around him. Had he dribbled around after the rebound and possibly passed the ball off we're probably shooting free throws with under 6 seconds left. Fucking A do we routinely lose in the most inconceivable ways imaginable.  Our lack of college basketball history doesn't allow it to be nationally notable or recognized, but after rewatching our tournament losses this past week we have an inordinate amount of "what tha fuck", "how tha fuck did that happen" losses.

Don't know where Damion James is playing ball now,  but he'd thrive in today's basketball environment. @Goo Punch punch mentioned it another thread,  but his tenacity is Cunningham like except with pro level talent.  Got damn I forgot how hard he played.

Watching these Barnes games  tenacity is the biggest difference between Barnes and Shaka, that and pushing the ball up the court like a fucking mad man.
