The man is a snake oil salesman, selling ‘basketball’.


Snake oil?
Yep diamondbacks, copperheads, vipers, king cobra, black
mamba, pitino...venomous...

Venomous snakes are species of the suborder Serpentes that are capable of producing venom, which is used primarily for immobilizing prey and defense mostly via mechanical injection by fangs. Common venomous snakes include the families Elapidae, Viperidae, Atractaspididae, and some of the Colubridae. The utoxicity of them is mainly indicated by murine LD50, while multiple factors are considered to judge their potential danger to humans.

Good Article from the Daily News.

www.nydailynews.com/sports/college/nyc-h...ed-article-1.3869054

A lot to take in and I have to run so I haven't finished the article yet. But a lot of familiar names from AAU and CHSAA/PSAL hoops, players and coaches, past and present.

Interestingly one thought I had was the fact that Moussa Cisse travels from Jersey City to CTK and if St. Anthony's hadn't closed, how much easier it would be for him to play there with a great program and coach instead of tracking across the Hudson one PATH and two subway rides to and from school.

If they are corrupt, are they really great coaches? Or just cheaters who felt they had to resort to playing against the rules and against the law in some cases?

Honestly, in baseball, steroid cheaters are POS. Not only did many rack up stats, but they kept players in the minor leagues who would never whiff an MLB roster because 40 year olds were playing like 25 year olds. Not to mention thousands of HS and college kids who used steroids as a road to prob ball.

Cheaters are the worst, and just one reason there has been a very long road to restore our program.

Great, very long article chock full of details about the NYC ‘game’. Should be a Cliff Notes version! I’ll re-read it later. Thanks SJU85.

About 45 major schools in the tournament with at least six coaches Miller, Izzo, K, Willard, Pearl and Larrananga named in the current investigation involving one sneaker company and three other coaches Roy Williams, Sampson and Calipari having past troubles. Don't know how many I missed or how many others committed violations with other sneaker companies.
Pretty much a cesspool.

Wow what an a.azing article, thanks for sharing. Just can't help but keep thinking about how many players we missed out on who wanted to come here but didn't because we play fair.

CTK has a long history of literally poaching players from other schools to attend their school. I'd be pretty certain that tuition is never an issue for top hipsters.

The great Kaz was convinced to transfer from Sachem (about 45 miles away) to attend CTK. it would have created Rolls Royce backcourt with Sue Bird. They told Jax anything to get her there.

Once at CTK, after practice a few days in , Jax asked why she wasn't running the point. They laughed at her and said "Are you kidding? Sue Bird plays point." Nicole went back to Sachem.

Tragic story of Nicole Kaczmarski, who everyone, including an overbearing dad, wanted a piece of her. She went to UCLA in a much heralded decision. Some said to get far from her dad. Her frosh year yielded what was deemed to be a disappointing 10 ppg. She left UCLA and eventually quit school and basketball. I hope she's happy now.

Players are simply commodities. Once their value us gone, the system spits them out. Our tragic guy was Rysheed. Perhaps a victim of his own bad decisions and horrible life, few of us feel sorry for a kid we cheered, yet now languishes in prison. Maybe just maybe he is a victim of a system that creates kids who become nationally known names befire they graduate high school. Few ate prepared to deal with it and still focus on school.
