Crean discusses James

Courtesy of Gary Parrish of CBS Sportsline Tom Crean discusses his point of view on Dominic James' pursuit of his NBA dream:

"But you have to let people chase their dreams," Crean said. "I know a guy at a program that we compete against who worked so diligently to hold one of his players back that -- and this player ended up being a lottery pick -- he didn't even meet the player's agent until the night of the draft. I don't think that's right, and I don't ever want that to be me. You have to give your players a chance to chase their dreams. If not, you're not building your program the right way or doing the right thing.


I wonder who Coach Crean is talking about? Hmmm....

This is exactly why more players will want to come to play for coach Crean

The example which Crean gives is an exception, most coaches do not stand in the way of their players ambitions. I wonder if Crean isn't trying to make himself look like Mr. Wonderful.
