Yeah, I don't think UNC ever got anything for their academic scandal, did they?
Haha. No they didn’t . This won’t ever see the light of day. Their request isn’t even relevant. It will get thrown out and it will be much to do about nothing.

If Zion and his family did get extra benefits does anyone think that Duke would get punished by the NCAA while college basketball is going through the worst time in its history ? College basketball needs Duke more than ever to be the loved and most hated team they have been for a long time.

Anybody know what this is all about? I had no idea that there were any problems with Lawson and Roy. McCants? Yeah I’d buy that, but I was surprised to see this:

Maybe he's saying Roy told NBA GMs not to draft him perhaps, or badmouthed him in some way ("I got messages from 10 nba gm's that said it came out your mouth")? Not sure.

The BR article below speculates whatever it is, it's a recent development. Despite his claim of not supporting anything UNC does and people supposedly asking him why he doesn't show love to the program, his social media frequently has in the past.

Another one stated that it could be a move to get his name back out there. I’m not saying Roy is a saint no coach is but this is from left field.

That's absolutely hilarious how he did it though. He wins a social media fan vote as "favorite PG," and his response to it is to blast Roy. lol

Just glanced at his Wikipedia page and I had no idea he had that many DUIs. If he needs help hopefully he's getting it.

we can argue about this all day but the fact is out side of dead bodies, hookers, and blow nothing will ever be pinned to Carolina or Duke.

There’s to much money to be had from both schools.

Absolutely. Especially right now. College basketball is at its lowest point of existence IMO. They need Duke, UNC, UK more than ever.

I’m not saying this in a mean spirited way towards UNC at all, but Phil Ford is one of Carolina’s favorite sons and he has had a lot of trouble with alcohol over the years. If Lawson is having that many issues Phil Ford seems like he would be a great person to have in his corner.

There’s a lot of folks he could call if he needs it but this isn’t the way to say hey help me.

It’s certainly not a good way. I hope he gets whatever kind of help he needs if he needs it.
I’m all for helping people and helping them get help and if he needs it then thats one thing but going out and trashing someone because the world doesent give you what Carolina did is another.

Carolina spoils you. Life is cruel and mean and will beat you down. Hopefully he finds the tools to help him stand back up

I’m wondering if he feels like he’s been “blackballed” from the league (over his own issues) and he’s had NBA GMs tell him they’ve reached out to Roy for an opinion.... and it wasn’t good?

I can absolutely see this being the case. While I’m here maybe Roy covered up some problems while he was there and decided not to anymore?
