Worst college basketball thread title ever? Probably, but it goes well with the content of the OP
Yay, it was Big XII media day today, and an unnamed reporter asked Coach Self one of the dumbest questions in the history of dumb questions:
Question of the day to Bill Self: Has Wilt Chamberlain or Danny Manning reached out to Andrew Wiggins?
I believe Self's response to that Wilt/Manning/Wiggins question: "(long pause) Well, Danny might"
Wiggins is so far in Marcus Smart's head that I expect a complete mental break before we even get to play them.
From today. From last week.
But I guess he takes after his coach:
“Kansas is still the favorite. (Andrew) Wiggins is, from what I understand, the best player to ever play. I’ve seen him play and he’s really good. They’re still the No. 1 team and should be. They’ve got tons of talent, they’ve got depth, they’ve got the best player to ever play at Kansas and that’s a pretty good deal.”
I'm glad our coach is classy enough not to pull that kind of b.s.
“I don’t think it’s right at all for another coach to talk sarcastically about somebody else’s players.”
And just like everything else coming from Wiggins - he's team first, Wiggins second:
I asked Andrew Wiggins what he expects when he matches up with Marcus Smart and Oklahoma State: "A Kansas win."
