    Hopefully Manny has a good season and can make it back to the NBA. Michigan used to have a lot of players in the NBA…I think we’ll eventually get back to that point.

      I’m a little surprised because it seems like he did all right when he got PT in Cleveland. I thought some other NBA team would give him a shot. Maybe next year?

    Interesting note, I think Manny has NBA game.
