Yes, he’s annoying, loud, Duke loving and his age has passed the game by.
But it’s summer time, so here’s his list..
I can’t wait for the college basketball season to begin. I know, I know, it is the summer and there is a long time before we tip it off. That doesn’t mean I can’t think about next season, baby!
I sat down at the Broken Egg and picked my All-Rolls-Royce teams for next season, subject to change in October, just before the season begins. You know, injuries could influence a change.
Over the next two weeks, I will unveil each team, leading up to the crème de la crème, my first team All-Rolls-Royce. My friends, there is a lot of talent out there, and this was not an easy process. I know there will be some debates, and that is part of the fun.
