I believe this screenshot of a facebook reaction to Larry Drew II (what, no JR?) transferring from UNC says it all. Rashad McCants’ father isn’t a huge fan of Roy Williams. Heck, with the way he treats the fans, it doesn’t take a strong imagination to feel he’s not a player’s coach.

    Don’t blame your son’s inability to keep an NBA job on Roy. That’s all on you for raising a kid with such a bad attitude. It’s easy to see where he got that bad attitude after reading your comments. Roy has put many kids in the pros and is known to be a players coach. 99% of them love Roy. Only the ones with unrealistic expectations or meddling parents have a problem with him. You probably fall into both of these categories. Good luck to Rashad in his acting career.

    I thought Roy loved all his players and that’s why he gave them expensive watches as graduation gifts?

    You know how far up the mountain you have gone by the “enemies” you see in your wake. And the type.

    If someone that has “made it” professionally is critical, then you can look in the mirror. Rashad made it to the league but was not successful there. He had a tremendous skill set, but it is your attitude, not necessarily your aptitude, that determines your altitude.
    I wish McCants the best in the future, but any consideration of his father’s opinion should be of little consideration.
    It will be of great fodder to opposing fans as they want to find negative everywhere they search.

    I don’t know what McCants’ dad is talking about. Roy Williams didn’t recruit McCants to Carolina … Coach D’oh did. So how can Mr McCants even speak to how Roy recruits players? Also you need to remember, Mr McCants, that your son was one of those freshmen that essentially got D’oh removed and Roy Williams hired. If it wasn’t for Ol’ Roy, McCants wouldn’t have even been selected with the 14th pick in the NBA Draft. And … as we all know … once you get into the League then it’s all you.

    Seriously. With all the Carolina Family in positions of power in the NBA (Mitch Kupchak, Donnie Walsh, Michael Jordan, George Karl, John Kuester, etc), it has to be Rashad’s fault why his NBA career never took off.

    As to the comments made by a Dad that seems to have bad feelinga about how come his bad attitude son did not do well. The apple does not fall far from the tree, does it? Coach Roy may be considered one of the greatest coaches of all times and in my book that it completely true. Sure, he gets excited about poor play and screams and jumps around like someone who truly wants to win. But, the same can be said about any successul coach. Just take a look at Coach K. But, with that comes respect from your players. The only thing that I can see that Coach Roy does not do is, NOTHING! The man has integreity and honestly cares about his players. So Mr. McCants try pruning your own bushes, Roy is Fine.

    I am not a Roy Williams fan either. He has taken five players who were Mr. Basketball of Iowa in five different years out of Iowa. We are trying to build a good team in Iowa City and he takes all the good players. I don’t know what he promises but he gets them. How many players from North Carolina play basketball for him? Why shouldn’t you have the best team when you take the best players from all over the U.S? He did the same thing in Kansas. I guess win at all costs is his motto!!!!

  10. SassyTarheel Says:

    Whatever!!! I am an alum of UNC and I can say that Roy Williams is a pretty decent coach. Rashad McCants has a bad attitude when he was at Carolina and that seems to have continued on after he went to the NBA. That isn’t Roy’s fault. Also, notice that none of the players who are successful (or have a good attitude) have complained about Roy. I think McCants’ father needs to shut up and stop badmouthing Roy just because your son didn’t do well in the NBA. He’s just pissed that Roy tried to bring some discipline into his son’s life (which he obviously dind’t instill). Leave Roy alone. And good riddance to Drew II. He wasn’t very good and if he up and quits because a Freshman took his place as a starter I say it’s addition by subtraction. Go Heels!

  11. SassyTarheel Says:

    Sorry about those typos but I was a bit upset after reading that story about McCants’ father ranting about Coach Williams.

    Also, to Hawkman: All coaches recruit outside of their state. They’d have to be a fool to ONLY pick player from their state. You just sound bitter. Every elite program recruits the best players period. Just look at the home states on the roster of players at Duke for example or any other school like Syracuse. Most of those players aren’t from NC or NY. Besides, Tyler Zeller’s brother is staying in Iowa so that is one Roy didn’t get so stop whinning.

    I am a fan of UNC but i must say with 4 players leaving in the past 3 years i have to wonder if something is wrong with Roy Williams.i do agree however that putting Marshall ahead of Drew was a necessary move.

  13. Joe williams Says:

    Players transfer from dook far more than any ACC school and they continue to win. Students drop out of school and is that the instructors fault. In order to be good at anything in life you have to work to profect your self wether it be good or disruptive.

  14. CHILW ILL Says:

    THIS MAN IS UPSET DO TO THE FACT THE HIS SON DIDN’T PAN OUT IN THE NBA. HIS SON WAS JUST A GOOD PLAYER IN COLLEGE NOT A GREAT ONE. HE HAD ALL THE SKILL BUT DID NOT WON’T TO BE A TEAM PLAYER. I LIVE IN CHAPEL HILL AND WOULD GET MY HAIR CUT AND THE SAME SHOP AS SOME OF HIS TEAMMATES. AND IF THOSE WALLS COULD TALK MR. MCCANT’S WOULD BE SHOCKED TO HEAR HIS TEAMMATES TALK ABOUT HIM. TO BE THE BEST YOU MUST HAVE TEAMMATES THAT WANT YOU TO BE THE BEST. MR MCCANT’S SHOULD STOP HIS CRYING AND BE THERE FOR HIS SON WHEN ALL HIS MONEY RUNS OUT.
