John Wall, you must ignore Gary Parrish

The best faux-hawk in sports journalism has a little piece over on CBS Sports today urging the point guard from Raleigh to enter the NBA Draft under any circumstances – and he even uses Coach Calipari’s words to back his claims.  He writes that Coach is a firm believer in sending a player pro when he’s ready and mentions that Calipari tore up DaJuan Wagner’s scholarship in front of him when his draft feedback was favorable, so he should be encouraging the same thing of John Wall.

Parrish might be right about Wall being ready to play in the NBA immediately (I swore after the Nike Summit that he could average 12 ppg 6 apg right now), but I think ole Gary has his priorities wrong.  Obviously, returning UK to prominence is more important than a young man making a living.

Go Cats.
