How does all this hoopla surrounding Marcus Smart affect his draft status, if any? Will teams pass on him because of anger problems? Is he the next Ron Artest?
Papi, Pedrioa, Johnny Gomes. Shoe-ins.
If we're talking nicknames, than nothing tops Jared "The Pillsbury Throwboy" Lorenzen. The dudes 320 lbs. and still slinging the pigskin, in what looks like a semi pro football league being played at Manning Bowl.
You also should look at what he has done with the USA Basketball Team. He completely changed the culture of our program. USA is always the most talented team, with a roster full of NBA players. However, there were a few years where they sputtered out and did not win the gold. You can argue that they were not a well put together team, in terms of players' abilities and fitting together. But, that doesn't matter, they should never not win the gold. Coach K brought a hard working, no nonsense defensive minded system with him to USA Basketball and the team is committed to playing together as a team and they have dominated with Coach K. YES, he is the best college coach of all time.
This is coming from an absolute Duke hater too; I have them lose second round every year in my bracket. The years it works, I feel like God, the other years it only fuels my hatred for them more. With that said, I'm a huge Jabari Parker fan and he will make me route for Duke this year. It hurts my inners just writing this now.
