Tuesday on the Dose, we know how difficult it can be to declare winners and losers from an event like the 2018 NBA Draft, but we look a little closer, and we have found some very deserving participants!
W name a few teams, a few coaches, a few players, and even a parent as our winners and losers from the NBA selection process.
We also have some breaking LeBron James news that we aren’t so sure about, and another NFL player is trying out the appeals process.
Clint recaps the Final 4 and National Championship game. Can Tiger Woods play well at the Masters? We hand out some college basketball awards, a major league baseball preview, and the Top 5 most hated Duke Blue Devils of all time!
University of Connecticut women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma recently made headlines when he stated that men’s college basketball is “unwatchable “.
“The bottom line is, nobody can score,” Auriemma told national media on a conference call. “And they’ll tell you that it’s because of great defense, great scouting, a lot of teamwork. Nonsense, nonsense. College men’s basketball is so far behind the times it’s unbelievable.”
What Auriemma apparently failed to realize is that these young men spend a number of hours in the classroom working on their college degrees.
“My players would love to work on their offensive skills more but the fact is they have book reports and term papers due.” Kentucky coach John Calipari retorted.
“These guys aren’t majoring in basketball.” Calipari went on “Karl Anthony-Towns is studying kinesiology and is hoping to become a doctor someday. Maybe Geno has players that are going to go on to lucrative professional basketball careers but my boys have to hit the books. They understand the importance of education.”
Kentucky head coach John Calipari made a fatal error this week; forgetting to RSVP his 34-0 Kentucky Wildcats to the Big Dance.
“The RSVP was sitting on the table. I had filled it out and everything I just forgot to drop it in the mailbox.” Calipari lamented.
As a result Kentucky’s season comes to an end without a National Championship and millions of March Madness brackets have been ruined.
“We are obviously disappointed.” stated NCAA president Mark Emmert “Kentucky looked to be one of the best teams in the country, but rules are rules. And if we let them get away with not RSVP’ing then where does it all end? We begin to see the beginning of a lack of institutional control, And we at the NCAA will not stand for that.”
“It’s definitely a dark day in Lexington.” Calipari told reporters “But wait until they see the recruiting class that I’m bringing in next year.”
