What could have been is now impossible.
Samardo Samuels won’t be sticking around the University of LouisvilleÂ to develop his potential. With delusions of being a National Basketball Association draft pick, Samuels is apparently hiring an agent, according to an ESPN report.
If that’s true, he’s gone.
Sad to see a player with so much untapped potential make such a sorry decision. From statements his father had made earlier, it was obvious the old man considered the draft a foregone conclusion.
Samuels will be lucky if his name is called in the first five rounds if he is drafted at all. More than likely he will wind up playing basketball overseas. That’s obvious even to the most casual fan. The pay may be decent, the food good, and the lodgings okay but these amenities fall far short of NBA standards.
One wishes Samuels only the best, and hopes he keeps his daddy happy.
