Daniel talked a bit about University of Florida’s Corey Brewer and the comment he made after the championship victory. Daniel is upset with Brewer’s decision to put NBA money ahead of a college degree.
Brewer said: “We feel like we did everything we could possibly do in college basketball,” said Brewer, who finished with 1,225 points, shooting 47 percent. “It’s been really fun, but now it’s time to move on. We have bigger challenges. It’s just hard not to be together anymore.”
Daniel said “here’s a bigger challenge for you, how about graduation, how about getting your degree?”. Daniel went on to say the University of Florida gave him a 4-year scholarship with the “expectation” he would stay long enough to complete his education. As a matter of principle, Brewer should consider a college degree just as important as a career in the NBA. What happens if he blows out his knee in the first day of practice? College basketball (NCAA) has one of the worst graduation rates of any other collegiate sport. Daniel said it’s deplorable that money and NBA fame is more important than the importance of a college education.
