Basketball education pays off

May 4, 2011 - Burt Angeli
Former pro and college football head coach John Ralston returned in the past couple years to his home town of Norway. He told a group of youngsters, “Play hard, study harder.”

That may not be the best advice after watching the NBA playoffs between the Lakers and Mavericks.

According to TJ Simers of the LA Times:

“The next time Mommy or Daddy tells you to do your homework, pick up a basketball and start dribbling.

Five of the 10 starters in this series, Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Dirk Nowitzki, DeShawn Stevenson and Tyson Chandler, never went beyond high school before going on to make millions in the NBA.

Who needs to waste their time on real school things? Not even journalists, thanks to spel check.”
