While Kevin Durant is being courted by NBA execs, shoe companies and possibly Kobe Bryant; Josh McRoberts has already made up his mind about his future. His decision: The NBA...it's fantastic!
Normally, the NBA and the shoe companies wave the dollar signs and put the hard sell on young Negro players. Essentially, paying them off to give up a chance for an education and the chance to mature. In this case, we applaud McRoberts for bucking the trend.
Not only is he a white player giving up his education (and, loathe as we are to say it, Duke provides one of the best), but he is doing it without the distractions of lottery talk, megabucks and shoe contracts. He is doing it without any accompanying season long speculation on what his choice will be. He is doing it despite the fact many are asking, "What is that slow, soft nitwit thinking?"
McRoberts is nothing, if not his own man. A man not afraid to heartily wail into a towel when he realizes he never lived up to expectations at Duke. Clearly, he supposes the fact that he was used and abused in a down year of ACC action will work to his advantage in the draft.
McRoberts feels that his being exposed as soft and slow, coupled with the application of the requisite Dukie characteristics of having "heart" and "desire", perfectly formulate the composite of the next white Blue Devil NBA failure.
The time is ripe. Another year of working on his game in college could possibly upset this perfect balance of a lack of ability, overrated potential, and a sore loser's attitude being misconstrued as having "heart". Josh has to go, and he has to go now.
On the record, evil Devil coach KKK says:
"We had great conversations, and we are 100 percent behind his decision," Krzyzewski said. "Josh has been a terrific player for us for the past two years, and he will be even better in the future as a professional. Based on our information, it is time for him to move on to the next level, and we are ready to help him in any and every way during this process."
We have it on good authority that after this quote, Krzyshevskilewsi turned to Johnny Sell-Out and said, "You think anyone bought that mess?".
Johnny's response was, "Well, the part about being 100% behind him leaving is true! So who cares."
Apparently, the basis of their "information" for McRoberts to move on was the film of this year's match-ups with Tyler Hansbrough.
We wish McRoberts success at the next level and will be posting and keeping fans updated about his exploits in Lithuania.
The media awaits word on Greg Paulus' next move.
