Last season OKC Thunder’s Mitch McGary faced a one year NCAA ban after testing positive for marijuana while playing for the University of Michigan. The 6’10 forward believes the entire situation was actually 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.
“You know what? I did. Whatever. So what? I learned from it,” he said. “It was the opposite of harming somebody.”
I actually appreciate his honesty. So many people would have given a BS politically correct answer or just lied.
