Brandan Haywood, the former North Carolina Tar Heels center and current ESPN analyst, showed his feelings towards the Duke Blue Devils and coach Mike Krzyzewski. Haywood hasn’t played against Duke since 2001, but he still has hatred for the team that’s eight miles away from his alma mater.
Coach K lied about how he handled the Dillon Brooks incident on Thursday night in their Sweet Sixteen loss to the Oregon Ducks. Then, Krzyzewski gave a “public apology” but claimed that he didn’t understand the reporters question.
“Coach K knows better, broke a rule, and seems a little salty about the loss,” Haywood said today. “With all that’s going on with Grayson Allen this year, you’re talking to Dillon Brooks about sportsmanship? Grayson Allen’s running around the court crane-kicking everybody he can find. Clean your own front porch before you come over and clean mine.”
Allen, who is expected to be a lottery pick should he enter the NBA Draft, had a history of tripping his opponents this year – twice and possibly once more during the Blue Devils win in the first-round of the NCAA March Madness Tournament.
While Haywood was spitting fire about the Blue Devils, he does make valid points. This whole situation hasn’t painted Krzyzewski in a good light.
This situation has been come under fire from those in the basketball world as well as those on social media, including famous people. Even Actor Samuel L. Jackson got into it on Twitter with his opinion over the situation.
“So, Coach K dogs a kid, Lies about it, Half-Ass apologizes & ….. It’s All Good?,” Jackson tweeted.
