  1. Solid job.

    An excerpt:
    We imagine plenty of punks come through the hallowed doors of the Big Four. Any memorable encounters with entitled jocks?

    Post national semifinals, 1998. A locker room in the Alamodome in San Antonio. UNC hoopster Makhtar Ndiaye goes into a tirade accusing a Utah player of calling him The N Word. (The charges are false.) Well, anyway, after that, Makhtar starts cussing out my colleague. In French. I won the French prize in high school and caught a phrase here and there. I believe there were references to the practicing of “the oldest profession.”

    Two weeks later: Vince Carter’s walking out to his car after telling his teammates that he’s going pro. He looks me right in the eye and says, “No decision yet.” Nonsense.

    They say Christian Laettner was a very unpleasant fellow while at Duke. That’s before my time.

    Poster Child Tim Duncan was often rather surly with me.

    The only problem I have with it is that it's clearly an email interview, yet it doesn't clarify it as one. I liked the interview, but I found it a bit misleading...

    French verb meaning to exchange sexual favors for money: Prostituer. Not exactly a hard catch. I'm sure he heard a more inflammatory word instead, though.
