Gary Parrish of CBS Sportsline writes a wonderful column today about Julian Wright. It's a great read. Here's the link.
Turns out Wright isn't foolish, naïve or misleading. He's mature, intelligent and honest. For every question he had a solid answer. For every answer he had a wonderful explanation. By the time I hung up the phone, I was convinced Wright was dead-serious, and I felt stupid for ever thinking otherwise.
Granted, he may be the exception to the rule.
But he is an exceptional exception.
"I can't help but to play in the NBA someday," Wright said. "But I'm not in any rush."
