Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim is a lot like myself- he looks for things to complain about. We find fault with life just for the sake of having something to complain about. In the run-up to last year’s draft, Boeheim made some remarks about his players’ NBA Draft stock that rubbed certain people the wrong way.
Jim Boeheim advocating that his own players (Tyler Ennis and Jerami Grant) stay in school instead of declaring for the draft looked like he was putting the Syracuse program’s interests above the interests of his individual players. However, his players were not offended by it, and that’s what counts.
They appreciated Boeheim’s brutal honesty.Follow paulmbanks
