Absolutely. He'd start in the NBA right now if he were eligible to be drafted. The national hype machine is all over HB.

I think we got a good deal by trading Mac for Hoiberg, but I'm not going with HB stabbing us in the back. He did the best thing for himself, which is all that he was obligated to do. Most of us would likely make that choice, too, especially given the rampant dysfunction in the hometown program combined with the style of play that he didn't want to play.
I don't like the press conference thing, but I don't think it means he stabbed us in the back. He just picked somebody better (which hurts on its own).
