UConn's Boone To Enter Draft
7th April, 2006 - 7:51 pm
Hartford Courant - UConn junior Josh Boone announced today that he will enter his name into the 2006 NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent, which allows the possibility of withdrawing his name and returning to UConn for the 2006-07 men's basketball season.

"Over the last three years at Connecticut, I have played with, and against, the highest level of competition in college basketball. I feel now is the time for me to explore the option of testing my basketball skills against the best players in the world," Boone said. "I realize this will require a great deal of hard work on my part, but believe that I am prepared for the challenge of playing in the NBA."

Kevin Durant has Tracy McGrady potential. No way does Noah go ahead of him.

wasn't impressed with him at all to be honest. Awful free throw shooter, especially in the clutch of games. There is just something about him, he looks unconfident or something

Durant will be very good, but he won't be like T-Mac. He is more of an inside SF than T-Mac. He could turn out a lot like Rashard Lewis.

He's got an insane work ethic and his favorite player is T-Mac. That's why he's going to Texas.

Boone is not even as good as Turiaf out of college, and he was a 2nd round pick.
