It's funny how Harrison Barnes and Jared Sullinger both return to college because of their "love for college". Jones comes back, and Calipari is a "salesman". Nice little double standard.
How many people on here think that Roy Williams or Coach K would rip up a kids scholarship to tell him he is ready for the draft? Doesn't sound like a salesman to me.
And then Goodman lauds Jones' decision to return.
On the surface, with a terrific recruiting class coming to Lexington, many would question why Jones stuck around. But the talented forward isn’t close to ready for the NBA – he’s inconsistent and immature. NBA types told me he would have gone somewhere from 10-15 this year. He’ll probably move up slightly next year, but he can help win a national title and be better prepared for the next level.
I enjoy his columns, but, yes, that was an incredibly stupid "salesman" comment.
Double standard, indeed.
