Default Why is Sean Banks being "blacklisted"?

Are NBA teams too worried to take a risk on him for his past issues at Memphis or do they think he can't translate his success in the NBDL to the NBA?

Unlike some of the guys in the NBDL,Sean Banks can flat out ball and he's only 23 and had he stayed longer in college would've been a 1st Round Pick.

Although ****ing up his college career is a contributing factor but he has yet to get a NBA call-up and he's spent 3 years in the NBDL even averaging 21.7 PPG for the Lakers' NBDL affiliate.

Anybody know why he's been unable to even get a chance overseas or in the NBA.

Blacklisted? You really have a flair for the dramatic. I bet if you took a poll with GMs in the league most people don't even know the kid.

Lets see he's a gangbanger,flunked out of college and all around troublemaker. The question should be why any competent gm would risk anything on a person who has fled police,been accused of using a cigarette to burn gang sign into a 15 yr old girl and has gang ties?

sean banks was still getting into trouble when he was with the hornets and he was getting in trouble at an older age then butler. and this article says how he blew off try outs for the youth national team.

im not saying sean banks is bad, im just saying that his past mistakes are not as far behind him as they were for caron by the time caron got drafted. Maybe sean banks can make it if he stays out of trouble for another year or something.

What an idiotic thread by an idiotic poster who thinks that the Memphis Tigers(NCAA) can easily beat the Minnesota Timber Wolves.

A few years ago, there were bunch of idiots who were thinking that Lenny Cooke was being blacklisted and teams were not giving him a chance that he was due without even being able to specify that reason.

If he's good, someone's going to give him a shot. I've had enough of your stupidity. Please do not post again.

LOL a Sean Banks thread! Went to high school with him for 2 years (he's 2 years younger!)... I hope he doesn't get any more run ins with the law like his past days.
