Quote of the day: Roy Williams

Let me apply the caveat that I like Roy Williams and have the utmost respect for what he accomplished at the University of Kansas and then at North Carolina. But, Ol' Roy continues to be his own worst enemy--thin-skinned and very much about "me" in this current season which continues to spiral downward.

Roy's latest odd public comment was at a press conference prior to last night's game against Duke.

Here's Williams:

"Our massage therapist told me, 'You know, coach, what happened in Haiti is a catastrophe. What you're having is a disappointment," Williams said. "I told her that depends on what chair you're sitting. It does feel like a catastrophe to me, because it's my life."

Wow, at least Roy didn't say that the people in Haiti didn't have the right amount of "wont to." Seriously, making any sort of comparison of a basketball season to a natural disaster of this magnitude is downright insensitive.


  1. Not to mention that he makes the comment while casually letting everyone know he's getting a massage....hello, arrogant???
