What do you think about Julian Wright leaving the KU basketball team?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 10, 2007
“I think it’s really disappointing. It gave me hope for next season when he was the first to say he would stay. It’s really sad, but all the luck to him. I’m sure he’ll do well in the NBA.”
“I don’t know what to say. I think he was our best overall player. He said that he would graduate in three years and that money wasn’t really an issue, so I didn’t think he would go.”
“It’s very sad, and I’m heartbroken. I don’t think it’s time. We were so close this year and I think one more year with him is all we needed. I understand and empathize - begrudgingly. I just hope it doesn’t create a domino effect with the rest of the players.”
“I’m disappointed in the fact that he said he would come back, but of course I understand why he’s taking the opportunity to make millions of dollars. I thought we would have a great shot next season. I still think we have a good shot, but not if Rush leaves too.”
