Two wise decisions

It's hard to argue with the decisions made by LSU's Tyrus Thomas and Glen "Big Baby'' Davis on Monday.

Thomas' stock was likely never going to go higher than it is right now. While you can debate the merits of his stock as a top-five pick (remember Stromile Swift), you can't argue with his decision to leave at the peak of his value.

Davis, on the other hand, made a wise choice in returning to school. He wasn't a top-five pick. Heck, a lot of people didn't even have him high in the first round. So Davis was wise to come back, improve his conditioning and his game and raise his stock to a point where he can join his buddy, Thomas, in the NBA.

LSU coach John Brady shouldn't be complaining about losing Thomas. He helped get Brady to a Final Four and with Davis returning the Tigers should be strong again next year.
