This can't be real, right? If it is than I actually believe St. John's has a chance to be back. Do I care if 4 of the top 7 scorers about to be gone? Nope. Do I care that arguably the best player in the Big East is testing the NBA waters? Not one bit. If St. John's players are jealous of New York guys than New York's school is starting to do something right. Now in order for St. John's to truly be back, they need to start wearing these jerseys again:
I love those shorts so much. Not to mention Felipe Lopez was fucking good. That's step 2 for St. John's back. Step 3 would be, you know, winning. Can't be losing to Butler and DePaul when you have a shot to make the NCAA Tournament.
To the point of people transferring because of jealousy - of course New York guys are going to get more attention. That's the point of going to St. John's. If you're a New York player and stay home to try and rebuild this program you're going to get all the attention in the world. It helps when they also are the best players too. Posh Alexander and Julian Champagnie were the best two players on the roster. I'm starting to believe in Mike Anderson though. Keep landing New York guys and St. John's will be just fine.
