RK was really solid and might be one of the more under appreciated guys of Frans tenure. Would’ve gotten more minutes at just about any other D1 school in the country, but stuck it out to be Lukas backup.

Garza, Kriener and Nunge should have been one of the best front courts in Iowa history. Unfortunately Nunge couldn’t stay healthy.

At one point Iowa had all 3 and Tyler Cook.

The fact that they still haven’t gotten to the sweet 16 with that type of taken the up front under Fran speaks volumes to the point guard recruiting.

In some games he was tremendous. In other games he was a spazz and I fucking hated him. Perfect Hawkeye really.

Yeah let's not pretend that playing him more would only allow opportunities for positive plays. He had a lot of stupid shots and dumb plays. Fran's usage of him his final year was perfect. He was a role player, let's not make it more than it was.

Kriener is the perfect European player where the game is more free flowing. College basketball sucks for guys like him.

Tyler Cook getting his shot and making the most of it. Had 12/7/2 in 21 minutes against Charlotte and 13/3 in 16 minutes against Orlando.

Damn, he must think or know his contract is going to be guaranteed for the next 2 years.

Fucking great for him if that happens.

Luka needs to put his foot down and stop this shit. Unfortunately, that is very unlikely to happen until some bad things happen.
The sad thing is he likely won't have to. I think they will find out how little interest there is in CLUB 55 and how much most fans don't give a shit about buying garbage from a former player unless they are playing in the NBA at a high level.

What the real danger is for Luka is the inevitable email that will go out to CLUB 55 VIP members about "an exciting investment opportunity" or the direct call from Frank wanting to talk about it.

Nah, man. Think you have it wrong. Frank has learned from his past.

...He'll clearly make sure it's a phone call and not an email.

For all we know, Luka may be more than happy to go along with the grift.
