That truce didn't last long. Zach LaVine is starting to dish on his relationship with Alford.
Full quote from LaVine: "It was just a frustrating season for me, and coach and I really didn't see eye-to-eye on different things."— Ryan Kartje (@Ryan_Kartje) May 15, 2014
LaVine: "I just wanted to be on the floor & help the team every opportunity I could. … I just feel like I didn't get some opportunities."— Ryan Kartje (@Ryan_Kartje) May 15, 2014
Zach has impressed thus far.

Here's a short interview with Zach from the Combine. He clearly sees himself as a point guard.
Makes you wonder. Why didn't he get a shot at backing up Kyle...as opposed to the guy related to the coach?
In other Bruin news from the Draft Combine, Kyle Anderson dropped out due to an injury:

Update Friday Morning: More buzz on LaVine here and here and here. The theme I'm picking up is that Zach was always a point guard, Alford inexplicably didn't use him there, another season at UCLA would have been a waste, and now Zach is determined to prove he can play PG at the next level, So far, so good for Zach.
