“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
Hey so as a few of you may know, this semester a new class is being taught. It is Cultures of Basketball. It may sound like a joke but it is a combination of a history class with classroom discussions. The textbook that we are using is a book about NBA History written by the bloggers over at http://freedarko.blogspot.com.
Our class has gotten a lot of publicity over the web including here
state tried their best to make fun of it here
Anyway we are bringing Nathaniel Friedman (a/k/a Bethlehem Shoals of FreeDarko.com, GQ online, Business Insider, AOL Fanhouse etc.) to give a lecture next Tuesday 3/15. It will be at 4 pm in 1400 CHEM and will be about "Of Kings, Dippers, and Answers: How Race and Representation Build the NBA Anti-Hero". Our teacher wants us to get the word out so we get a decent sized audience.
If you want to find out some more about the class check out http://yagoc.blogspot.com/ as our teacher blogs about each lecture.
