    I don't get why they didn't get a quote from the kid.

    Shoddy reporting. Typical Deadspin.

    He's actually 20. Turns 21 in June. Not that it changes the story.

    His name is Junior. I read the story and don't see a reference to him being a junior.

    A friend of mine coaches another school in another sport in that same league, but is friends with his school's basketball coach. It's not breaking news to anyone else in the league. More like a joke. Some schools, in some sports, are as bad as college coaches.

    Kind of like saying a kid is 21 when he's really 20.

    Deadspin is also reporting he may have dated Lennay Kekua.

    Have to note the byline on that story -- Dave McKenna, whose Dan Snyder A-to-Z story caused all that trouble (and the lawsuit) and remains the most awesome and hilarious expose in all of sports journalism.

    Good to see he still has the giddy-up.

    He had an excellent piece on Grantland last week as well.
