2. I don't know why you're coughing like Kanter did something immoral or taboo. Kanter's ban was purely a technical point that because he had been paid more than the minimum living expenses back when he was playing for a professional club, he was considered a professional player and ineligible for the NCAA. It was different from the majority of cases where a player accepted money to play for a certain school or to provide an NBA team some kind of advantage over another. Would you make as big a stink had he made the money mowing lawns all year at age 16? It was a job, and he was paid for it, and unfortunately it was basketball-related so it made him a professional.
3. I think you're old enough to know the difference between rumor and fact, right? I'm not saying he definitely doesn't have knee issues, but instead of relying on "whispers" like some high schooler listening to Monday morning rumors about who put what in whose hooha over the weekend, why don't we just wait for when the draft prospects go through their medical checkups.
4. You must be an unusually sensitive individual to care so much about such potential conflicts. There's a big difference between not wanting a player (i.e. Beasley) because he's a nut case, and not wanting a player because he might not end up best friends with our myriad of non-franchise players.
