    NBA Kelvin Sampson being considered for Nets HC

    Not sure how I feel about this. Should I still hold on to the hope that this guy contracts fatal syphilis or should I be over it by now?

    Meh, get over it... Same could be said about Capel, Switzer, and so on... Time to move on.

    Still being mad or upset with him just seems like a waste of emotion to me.

    What Sampson did was common place, he just happened to get ratted out. College hoops is as dirty as they come.

    Hopefully people appreciate what he did at OU once the guy that replaced helped kill the program.

    He is a good coach. He kept our program at a near elite level with very little NBA talent. Yet we won... beating teams who had pro talent. It sucks he left OU and sucks we went on probation because of him and his staff... But I think they just got caught doing what everyone was doing. I wish him success.

    In fact since he left what he did is now legal in the NCAA because they got tired of trying to enforce the rules.

    I'm still thankful for what he did here. He had Oklahoma basketball in the same breath as the elite schools year-in and year-out. We now see how hard it really is to win basketball at Oklahoma. No doubt, I believe Lon Kruger can do it, but it is tough to do.

    I love Kelvin. He loved being at OU. What he did isn't even against NCAA rules anymore so what does that tell you.

    It tells me that no matter how much he loved being at OU he was a big enough dumbass to violate what were at the time NCAA rules - and not just break them a little.

    It was astupid rule that dozens of coaches admitted to breaking. Including Roy Williams and Tom Izzo. The NCAA cherry picked on whom to actually enforce it upon though.

    It wasn't the breaking of the texting rule that ultimately led to his departure from OU. It was his egotistical and smug attitude with both his superiors and the ncaa over the whole deal.

    Having said that, I will agree that it's unfortunate he had to leave OU.

    **** the NCAA . . . Oklahoma won when he was coach. The Milwaukee Bucks won when he was an assistant. The Spurs won a title when he was an assistant. Houston won while he was in charge.

    **** I want to WIN again!!
