The NBA is officially back and while Mizzou has not had that many of its stars go on to the next level and excel, that does not mean there have not been some success stories. This seemed like a perfect time for this poll! Here’s what it looked like on Twitter:
Welp. It looks like DeMarre Carroll ran away with this vote as he checks in with 76% of the votes. Jordan Clarkson comes in second with 11%, which is crazy because while he is good, plenty of people saw his struggles last year when he was traded to the Cavs. Keyon Dooling had a long and successful career and he came in third here. Linas Kleiza, who I think had one of the most successful NBA careers after Mizzou checks in dead last with 3% of the votes. That could be because of his move to International ball a little early or people just forget, which is fair.
Here are some of the replies:
Are we counting J3 as a mizzou guy?— AJ (@1ShippDaddy2) October 16, 2018
We are not because he went to Gonzaga and last I saw he was waived by the Lakers, but I am sure he could have a successful career in the NBA.
Voted DeMarre. Probably would have been Linas, but he went back to Europe too soon— AJCKC (@AJClipp) October 16, 2018
Brilliant. What a smart take.
Rush was good. Demarre Carrol has been solid for awhile. Had to be Carrol because of longevity— David Scoma (@scoma25) October 17, 2018
Kleiza!— David Scoma (@scoma25) October 17, 2018
Wait, which one is it?! Rush was good but I had high hopes for him. Going to the Bobcats (remember that team name?) probably did not help, though.
Anyways, now it’s your turn to vote! Let us know what you think in the comments or let me know on Twitter @Mhill_. If you enjoy the NBA like me, I’m happy to talk NBA whenever.
The NBA is officially back. So, we ask you, which former Mizzou Basketball player has had the best NBA Career since 2000?
