Sporting News with a great story on the former Duke player who has joined Coach K’s coaching staff.
“I’m very proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish with that,” Scheyer said. “It’s been a continuing process. Mentally and physically, it took a lot of hours in the gym just to get my skill back.”
“It’s all about how you come back. I don’t know of any player who started every game ever at Duke. I mean, he sat Elton Brand and those guys. We just told him its part of the process.”

Bernard King’s Journey to Springfield: Hubie Brown on Bernard. “The temptation is to focus on the two games where Bernard scored 50 points in Texas back-to-back, a great achievement. But in my mind, the really amazing thing was his playoff series against the Detroit Pistons. He averaged better than 40 points per game with two dislocated fingers. He made it look so easy that people didn’t realize the pain he experienced just catching the ball. He shot 60% from the floor during that stretch.” (New Yorker Magazine Sept. 17, 1984)

I read another disturbing story about a coach/teacher that has been arrested for inappropriate behavior with an underage female. I don’t have to post any links for your to click, just google the subject. What is wrong with these morons? Why does a grown man find the need to form a relationship with a minor? They have a good job, a family and kids at home. Do these schmucks realize they are throwing their lives away?
My friend Clarence Gaines penned a blog entry recently on this awful behavior, it’s worth the time.
