Ty Lawson Feels the UNC Fans’ “Love”


Interesting column today by Gary Parrish on CBS Sportsline about Ty Lawson’s feeling about UNC fans since he declared early for the draft. Lawson talks about how disappointed he has been that fans have not wished him well and that the vast majority of comments about him have been negative about his future chances. He mentions that the words “Joe Forte” have been thrown around about him for the past few weeks and that he doesnt feel that the fans care about him, rather than simply what he can do for the team.

Before we all get high and mighty on this one, I remember Marquis Estill expressing a similar sentiment when he decided to leave UK without attempting to get his extra year. It is the nature of the beast….fans want their team to win and often criticize their own where they feel that it wont be best for the team they love. What is odd in this case is to hear Lawson talk so openly about it. Wonder what the UNC folks will have to say about this……
