Why was Reilly being such a dbag? Craft is a great kid, great basketball player and someone who I respect a lot. What does this say about a sports writer (if you can call him that) who tears down such a fine young man. Craft has not been anything but an upstanding representation of a Buckeye. By the way, did anyone notice Craft scratching his nose with his middle finger when Reilly asked his last question? Way to represent ESPN!!! Not. Why does the press try to destroy people like Craft and Tebow? It was nice to see Deshaun step up for his teammate. These are guys who we should be emulating. He was a class act the entire interview and did not get rattled at all. Below is a summary of what transpired.
Exchange: Reilly: Could you see how someone might see you as annoying? Craft: I think that is for you Deshaun? ( laughing) Reilly: Not just in basketball, anytime. Could you see how in basketball you might be annoying... or in real life, anything like that?
Thanks for the BTN guys for standing up for Craft! If you have a chance to catch it on BIG Network, it is worth the time.
