TSN – Former Michigan standout Mitch McGary weighed in on the marijuana suspension that pushed him to end his college basketball career early.
Now with the Oklahoma City Thunder after being selected with the 21st pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, McGary told VICE Sports that going through the experience was “good for (him).”
“It was a learning moment. The way I handled it was mature and responsible so I think people actually took my side against the NCAA,” he explained.
He also said he brushed off the people commenting on his social media profiles accusing him of doing drugs.
“You know what? I did. Whatever. So what? I learned from it,” he said, chalking it up to being a college student.
Hey Bo Pelini!
Still can’t believe the NCAA’s idea of handling college kids smoking weed is to ban them for a year and force them to jump to the NBA and leave school before they’re ready. Interesting approach.
PS – Love Mitch with the “that’s what God had in mind” excuse. Maybe, orrr you just smoked weed with your friends like a million other kids then got caught during drug testing, either one. But yeah, God’s fault sounds better.
