Is Cal leading for J. Bird? - 06-27-2011, 07:36 AM

Out of no where, Cal is gaining alot of ground on J.Bird.
(tweeter on JBird2013)

That is correct.
And more importantly, it maybe a two school battle.
Cal or Arizona.

The DAD really likes Cal.
Rightfully so.
J.Bird is in the Cal camp so, he is listening to his father.

Can CAL get the commit sooner?


Note-
Washington was also in the race.
But, Romar's has created Washington PimpU.
Everyone is talking about Pimping at Washinton.
And no parent in any mind would allow their son to Washington PimpU.

Cal should be very excited with the news of being in J.Bird's Top2.

Yes, very excited.

Cal will get 2 for 1. If Bird goes to Cal, Artis goes there also.
In this order.


Cal also has two opportunities for Bird to land at Cal.
(outside of their control)

A) Shabazz goes to Arizona.
and NBA 2 year rule.*
Then, Bird goes to Cal.

b) Arizona decides to get KR.
Alot of Wildcats are high on KR.
Then, Bird goes to Cal.

(Everyone is already aware that KR wants to be a Wildcat. 110%)

What Bird says in the next month will determine alot of actions by the various staff's. What he says to the coaches.

I think he was a small forward but he may have played before I got interested in Cal basketball.

Carl Bird - 06-27-2011, 07:24 PM

was a good player on a very talented Cal team that just never gelled. He was a small forward w/ a great corner J, and very athletic. With the right coach, the team could have been pretty good, but I believe back then they only took 16 teams to the NCAA's anyway, so it would have been tough. Bird was a player, though.

Selected by the Warriors in the 6th round of the 1976 draft.

In 1975 Cal finished 17-9 with 4 JC transfers in the starting lineup. Bird, Connie White, and jay Young were 3 of them. I can't remember who the 4th was.

John Terry.

Ricky Hawthorne was the 5th starter.

They were expected to be good in '75-'76, but they disappointed. It wasn't a fun team to watch.

It gladdens me to know that Carl Bird has enough good memories of his time at Cal to be able to recommend us to his son. Getting a top-shelf recruit like Jabari Bird would be HUGE.

Did Hawthorne have the funkiest looking shot at Cal? I'm trying to remember other funky shooting motions through the years

Maybe Jamaal Wilkes although his shots went in more consistently than Hawthorne's. Most lefties seem to have nice looking jumpers but Hawthorne was the exception.
