Officially, probably, but are black players, especially those not returning, going to be very different anywhere?
Seniors maybe ....
It's a factor with Virginia.
... “We have received inquiries about a visit to the White House,” read a statement from head coach Tony Bennett. “With several players either pursuing pro opportunities or moving on from UVA, it would be difficult, if not impossible to get everyone back together. We would have to respectfully decline an invitation.”
Four players from that Virginia team — De’Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome, Kyle Guy and Mamadi Diakite — have declared for the NBA draft since the season ended, and all but Diakite have released statements saying that they are going to remain in the draft....
I choose to see it as a direct slap to 45SHOLE, players that want to go to the WH find a way. However, there's no telling what Tony Bennett would have required if there weren't so many leaving, or what the payers, leaving and staying, really wanted.
I wonder how far Pearl would go if the whole team declined. Is it worth booting payers when so many teams have already told POSPOTUS to fuck off?
