I guess last night gives me a new reason to get fired up about the Purple and Gold again. I am just as excited as about Jordan being the newest Laker as I was when J.J. Stokes was drafted by the Niners (in first round) to become the heir apparent of Flash 80. Let's hope it works out better for Jordan than it did for J.J. Here is the LA Times story on the newest Laker, and this comment from Laker G.M. Mitch Kupchak stood out to me:
Reportedly, Krzyzewski used an expletive to tell Simonton that her son was going to mess up his program. She said Krzyzewski was 'rude, personal.'
'Coach K is selfish,' Simonton told ESPN The Magazine. 'He talks about a so-called close Duke family. But he just wants to protect his program. He lied to us about where William would go in the draft. Late in the first round? Maybe even second round? Come on. Even I could pick up the papers and read he was going earlier than that.'
