Hoops - JJ Redick - Spread the Love

..... not. Ran across these two articles. The first is an absolute calling out of Coach K by Gregg Doyel. Check it out.

Krzyzewski has a passion and a love for college basketball, and for six days and 20 hours each week, he's a wonderful ambassador. But for those other four hours, his four most visible hours -- two for this game, two for that one -- he's awful. He's noxious. He is, in fact, an eroding influence on the sport he helped build.

Yes, I'm saying it: For four hours each week, Mike Krzyzewski is bad for college basketball.

Then it is an article on JJ Redick, who evidently Bobby Cremins thinks is a better shooter than Mark Price and Dennis Scott.

"He's definitely one of the greatest players ever to play in the league. ... Right off the top of my head, I would say top 10 or top 15. ... He might be the best shooting guard ever in the league." -- Bobby Cremins, ACC TV analyst and former Georgia Tech coach

Please Coach. If you really want that AD job, don't start having "senior" moments like this. Sorry, while I do respect JJ's game, he is NOT one of the top 10 best players to ever play in the ACC. No way, no how!!! Being an offensive marvel does not make for a well rounded game. Sorry. Is he one of the top 10 offensive players in the league's history? Getting closer but no cigar. Is he one of the top outside threats in league history? Bingo. Now you're in the ballpark.
