ESPN’s Bill Simmons has written his best article in years, and I couldn’t agree with him more on this issue. As someone who grew up in the Jordan era, I became a fan at precisely the wrong time. From his era onward, we’ve had a generation full of me-first shooters, and as a result, we’ve had some terribly boring years of basketball. Such a mentality has filtered down to the college ranks over the years, and O.J. Mayo is looking to continue that tradition at USC next year.
Just read the article, and keep hoping that Harding will be able to find the guys like Kevin Love, and not like Mayo.
