That’s probably his old ride; he likely got the ‘vette just a month ago when he signed the NIL deal with Jim Norton Chevrolet, a Corvette dealer in Tulsa.

Max is right in the center of God's will at ORU.  ORU while far from perfect, is a great place to be!

Ah...so Max DOES have a CORVETTE.....smooth but expensive on gas and insurance....is gas over $4 a gallon in Tulsa?...it's about $4.20 here in suburban Philly right now......and wondering why Max said he came to ORU for the Basketball?.....I am sure he came for A LOT more than that....who wrote that script??.....😬

$3.50.

A LOT cheaper than CA where I just moved from. 😂

I’m guessing either the insurance is covered by Jim Thorton or the title is still in the name of the dealer. Max may not even have to pay for the gas.

Gas always was cheaper in Oklahoma.....to put things in perspective.....TheEagleman can remember calling his dad back in about 1975 for a chat  during the gas crisis....the old man happened to mention that he had to go get in line for his weekly tank of gas which was approaching 80 cents a gallon at the time in PA.....I just laughed and told him that I had filled up earlier in the day at 43 cents a gallon over on Peoria.....ah.....those were the days.....😎

In 1972, I was buying premium for 28 cents a gallon on Peoria. It was 2 cents more than regular, but even as a struggling newlywed ORU student, I figured I could afford the luxury.

I remember 59 cents a gallon at QT in 1982.

$0.89 per gallon at Sam’s in 2020.  Cheapest gasoline ever on an inflation adjusted basis….

The NBA draft deadline ended last night around midnight eastern time zone and no signs of Max entering the draft. Now we just have until May 1st for the transfer portal to close up. Maybe Midcourt Max is coming back for his senior year!

There is no way Max did not enter the draft. My guess is he just did not publicly announce his entry as he did last year. I wonder if the NBA puts out an official list or makes it known to the public?

If he entered, surely one of our Tulsa reporters would have caught it.

I was told Friday night at the baseball game by someone with better sources than me that Max has been respectfully weighing his options and laying low while the coaching staff pursues these transfer targets, and may yet declare for the draft this week without hiring an agent, to go through the process of getting evaluated and receiving a draft grade before ultimately making his final decision before the loss of eligibility deadline.

Basically, the same thing he did last year…

If the deadline has already passed to enter the draft, how can Max enter the NBA draft this week?  It seems confusing but OT you can probaly explain it in simple terms.

I don't know how all that works; does anyone else know if that "deadline" this week was a soft date, or if there are ways Max and others could have entered quietly?

If you go to NBA Communications then they have five pages of players who entered the draft (283 guys). Surprised that Max is the first name on the list and this is for the 2022 draft.  This is a press release by the NBA draft, so it seems pretty accurate. 
Hoops Rumors website has Max on a list who they said did not publicly announce or somehow it slipped through their fingers. So Max must have declared without anyone knowing.

NEW YORK  – The National Basketball Association announced today that 283 players — 247 players from colleges and 36 international players — have filed as early entry candidates for NBA Draft 2022 presented by State Farm.

Players who have applied for early entry have the right to withdraw their names from consideration for the Draft by notifying the NBA of their decision in writing no later than 5 p.m. ET on Monday, June 13. Under NCAA rules, in order to retain college basketball eligibility, college players who have entered NBA Draft 2022 must withdraw by Wednesday, June 1.
