Early Tuesday afternoon Tar Heel fans who follow Reggie Bullock on Twitter may have been given a warning and hint into what Bullock’s future with the team will be in the coming weeks. It was a very unclear and cryptic message that could mean anything.
Bullock has been a key player on this young and inexperienced basketball team this year. He averaged 13.9 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. He, PJ Hairston and James Michael McAdoo have not hinted at their plans for the future and if they will return to UNC for the fall. Of the three of them, Hairston is the most NBA ready, but more than likely McAdoo will be one to leave for the NBA. However, don’t be surprised if Hairston and Bullock follow his lead.
If this is said to happen, it will open the door wide open for the recruitment of Andrew Wiggins. It will also mean the Tar Heels will yet again be one of the youngest and most inexperienced teams in college basketball. It will also signal that the team will more than likely return to their traditional line up.
As for Bullock, he sent this tweet that has scared many faithful Tar Heel fans yesterday afternoon.
Respect my dream.

Those three words could mean anything and until there is an official announcement from Bullock, we won’t know exactly what that means.
However, many Tar Heel fans are in absolute panic mode at this moment as they feel this was his way of warning everyone he will announce his decision to leave the school for the NBA a year early.
I think Bullock is a stellar players, but like the other two potential draftees on his team, I feel another season under their belt would only benefit them in the long run. We’ve seen so many talented players leave college basketball far too early and then never make it in the NBA. Hopefully this isn’t the case for either of the three individuals.
