If Nike avoids this and only Adidas gets hammered.

Credit Nike’s management and lawyers.

But.......switching up the summer circuit will fix everything.

I can see them skating. It just seems Nike has more structure. Adidas had a guy that got lazy, who hired an overeager guy that thought he was special and talked too much. Unlucky for them but lucky for Nike.

Wait, the co-founder of Nike paying elite talent to play in Eugene?! Say it ain’t so...

I would venture to guess that almost every 5* is getting something and several others rated a lower. Unless they go to Dook or puke, they just go there because they have great coaches, facilities, and tradition...

I just read that Jason Kidd will coach of the Lakers next year. 

Luke "I coached LeBron" Walton would probably have some cache amongst the youngsters. 

Do coaches actually 'coach' in the NBA?  Aren't they more like figureheads?  Perhaps they initiate sub patterns.

 

But basically an NBA game is this. One guy rebounds.  Dribbles it full court. Goes 1 on 5.  Lather rinse repeat.

15 years ago that was the NBA. But different now. Lot of good coaches in the league now who actually get after it. And those are of course your best teams. Kerr will rip into someone. Everyone knows Pop is great. But Budenholzer is a hell of a coach. Pacers probably should have hired him.

I was just in tucson and everyone is convinced sean miller is done at arizona. They all want luke walton as coach.

I am surprised that Sean has lasted as long as he has, but Walton won’t be here I the foreseeable future. Much of that buzz is coming from Walton’s camp to try to make it so. He was abominable in LA with the Lakers. No way the U of A walks into that quagmire.

It isn’t that Walton was bad, it’s that there was no talent to start with, then LeBron was added with Magic making dumb decision after dumb decision to go with it. Why give KCP so much money? Why any at all? Why get LeBron and instead of just filling all spots with every shooter you can find on the planet... you go get Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Michael Beasley and JaVale McGee... the Lakers problems are not from Walton. He just had to deal with the stupidity of Magic Johnson.

The NCAA has given Louisville a verbal notice of inquiry, indicating it may be set to move on the pay-for-play case:

My dream list? Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Mich State, Syracuse & Louisville. Anyone else is gravy, but I want to see those programs burn. Yes, yes I know they are untouchable, yada yada. Can't help that my heart wants what my heart wants. 


Don’t really know why you’d want any program to burn. A lot of these programs are the reason that 90% of people even pay attention.

They have defrauded everyone (fans & opponents) by blatantly cheating. If that causes 90% of people to lose interest, I'm fine with that.

Can you imagine if Indiana had been named in this scandal?  We would have been black balled, given the death penalty, had coaches removed and suffered a multi year tournament ban. I kid, mostly, but how is it that we have a minor infraction in previous years and the NCAA absolutely pounces on us, yet strippers, rapes, pay-to-play, etc. go unpunished. Makes me lose faith...

NCAA didn't, IU hammered IU.  We did the NCAAs job for them.
