This. I was going to start a new thread: "Boneyarders: Apologize to Donovan!" All the so-called experts here judging that he made a bad decision staying at Bristol Central rather than going to one of the prep schools for better competition. It doesn't seem to have hurt him, has it? Give his high school coach (and Donovan himself) all the credit in the world. Let this be a lesson that maybe, just maybe, it's the COACH who means more to a player's development than the opposing players?As much as we're enjoying these games nobody is enjoying them more than Bristol Central coach Tim Barrette. He kept the kid home when it seemed like everyone else was saying the kid needs to go to prep or he won't be ready. The announcers are always shouting out Bristol Central and how well schooled Clingan is.
How many high school players did Donovan face who were even 6'5"?? He has been outplaying ALL the big men he's faced...as a freshman!!!
