The great thing about the internet is that it is a place where people can discuss UK basketball and hear things that they couldnt otherwise find out. The bad thing is that people, with no basis in fact, can create absurd rumors that then take on a life of their own.
On a post on one of the UK boards, a person claims, with authority, that these facts are true:
1. Adam Williams, Rondo, Bradley and Shagari are all off the team next year
2. Bob Huggins will be the new UK assistant coach
3. Tubby Smith is about to be given a 10 year extension (right after the one he just signed).
These rumors are beyond absurd. Adam Williams loves UK and is happy here even if he never plays. Bradley is also generally happy here and has made no decisions about his future. Rondo will likely go to the draft and who knows what will happen with Shagari, but it wont be good.
Bob Huggins as a UK assistant is utterly absurd.
And the notion of a new 10 year extension when the team is having its worst season in recent memory is also ridiculous.
But many are eating up the info and accepting it as fact….dont be one of them.
