    Should coaches cater to current players and not recruit backups/potential starters?

    No such thing. Coaches recruit depth, and let the players figure it out with their play on the court and in practice.

    Semantics. If the coach recruits a player better than you at your position, you got recruited over.

    coaches try to get the best players they can in each class. then when they get into practice and let the players determine with their play where or who will start,

    I think it would be only if it’s in the same class and you had already told the committed player that you wouldn’t recruit the position anymore.

    Aside from that, no. Your position on the court is earned, and you have to continue to earn it.

    Of course.
    Recruiting is a crap shoot.

    No because they are left without depth.

    Problem with basketball now is that people are in these players ears and telling them that college coaches suck and they can get better coaching in Europe or the G League even if they don't get into the NBA

    Even players who won't be drafted decide to leave early.

    So you are putting yourself out there if you aren't making sure you have someone else who can play the position.

    You can’t possibly think some hack can convince a kid K, Cal, Roy, Self, or Izzo suck, and they will get better coaching from the pros, can you?
    It’s about the cash, simple as that.

    Yes.
    Because those coaches are thinking about one thing. That is winning basketball games.

    Nothing wrong with those coaches. They are great basketball coaches.

    But supposedly the G League and Europe are much better at developing players to play at the NBA level according to some.

    It has more to do with the time and effort.
    That is the pros. You handle yourself as a professional compared to a student athlete

    NCAA has rules about practices and interactions between player and coach that the pros don't have

    they go to Europe to get paid to play BB same with the G League they get PAID, it has nothing to do with coaching. some of the coaches that were listed have been coaching for a couple decades and these coach the best there is in the BB world, at this level,

    Doesn't matter.
    They are paid to win games and not to develop players .
    Wins and losses don't matter in the G League.
    It is all about player development

    There was a huge # of players who left early who weren't drafted.

    A lot it is about money. A lot of street agents and other people with voices but ultimately college basketball isn't the NBA.

    You have different styles at a lot of schools. Winning games and developing NBA talent are two different things.
    No one keeps their job by producing NBA talent but coaches who don't but win games get to stay

    Always good to continue to recruit under and over because you never know who has one foot out the door

    Hell no. You recruit the best player you can get. If the current kid can't play then he can transfer to Tennessee or Auburn!SmokinSmile
