To the editor:
Sadly the mighty Jayhawk’s season has come to an end. The picture of Andrew Wiggins trying to hold on to the ball surrounded by his opponents says a lot, but his statements and near constant moniker of “one and done” say more. This year’s team had so much talent, and if they’d practiced being a team for the long haul, instead of focusing on one year of glory, the outcomes could have been different in nearly every loss.
Money is the siren of today, the set of blinders that lead men and boys down roads that do not have to be followed. Both Wiggins and Embiid have been lauded as one-year players all year. If they could see beyond the money and stay in school at Kansas University, the Jayhawk basketball team would be much stronger next year and win with their talents.
Focus on the team. guys, the money will still be down that road. Going there with a pride and smile would look so much better than the front page of anguish that ended this one.
