Goddammit Lance...if he took

Goddammit Lance...if he took money from an agent this could lead to the 2010 title vacated...

But if the NCAA investigates this and NOT the UNC Academic Scandal I'll be amazed...

Funny how quickly this story made it out to the public but it took so long for the UNC Academic Scandal to get out...

Regardless, if Lance Thomas took money from an agent than the 2010 title should be vacated imo. However, his mother is an owner of a Ford company and is quite rich so she could have given him the money...but 30,000 dollars worth?

I know Duke probably never knew about this, but still it is an NCAA violation if he got money from an agent and punishments should be handed down regardless if it is proven true.

I'll never understand athletes' facination with bling.

I'm really hoping he got it from his parents or otherwise we're f*cked.

Lots of holes of info. I looked for the case and can't find it anywhere.

I'd like to know the source of the 30k. Where he planned to get the balance in two weeks. Why he didnt just pay it off when he started getting paid for real. It doesn't really add up but I guess we have to wait for more info to come out.

Why would you give a line of

Why would you give a line of credit for 70k to a player who's draft prospects were looking pretty grim?

The weirder part is that he only had two weeks to pay it off wayyy before he ever even had a chance to sign an NBA contract...It just doesn't add up.

It would make more sense if it was Kyrie Irving but...Lance Thomas? lol

akhan, UNC was already

akhan, UNC was already cleared of the academic scandal by the NCAA. This seems like it could possibly be pretty bad for Duke.

Actually no they haven't

Actually no they haven't UNCbasketballbum. That report was a press release from UNC saying that based on what UNC has given the NCAA that they have done nothing wrong.

However it isn't over yet. The actual investigation is still going on through the SBI.

I said this on your thread but it was too late (I couldn't get on all day) so no one saw it.

Sorry UNC isn't out of the clear yet.

The 30k isn't the big issue

The 30k isn't the big issue because his mom made a good 6 figures from her job, the issue is the Lin of credit that he recieved which is based on him paying the money back through future earnings which is a NCAA violation. As far as a agent wanting him, a starter for a nationally ranked team will get 75 to 100k wi his first euro contract with the team most likely paying e taxes on it. That's not chump change.

As far as the story, they started the seeing proceedings last year so it's not like this just happened

It can't be an NCAA violation

It can't be an NCAA violation because the line of credit wasn't for a year it was for two weeks. He had to pay it off in two weeks during Christmas break WAYY before he had any chance at a professional contract.

His mother has a 6 figure job, I imagine that this was just irresponsibility with his college money from Lance.

I find it really hard to believe a Duke booster would float 30% of an impermissible benefit, and I find it really hard to believe that an agent would have $30k worth of interest in Lance Thomas.

If they prove that his mother gave him the $30,000 this is a non story.

And while improving the HEAT

And while improving the HEAT kind of sounds like building a juggernaut, it’s important to remember that the rest of the NBA didn’t stay stagnant in the offseason. The Los Angeles Lakers have Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, the Brooklyn Nets have Joe Johnson, and young teams like the Oklahoma City have another year of experience under their belts.

Lance getting nearly 100k in

Lance getting nearly 100k in bling with only 30k down because he plays for Duke. This is going to put Duke in the cool with all the top prospects. Chalk it up as another recruiting advantage.

Anyone else find it hilarious that it's Lance Thomas of all players?

Unless there's something much bigger underlying this.

Lol. I know what you mean.

Lol. I know what you mean. Who would have thought he would be in the nba, but it goes to show Duke knows how to prep players for the work that it takes to make it in the nba.
Plus the extra perks playing for duke isnt bad after all.

Dammit Lance.

To be honest, I really don't think that they'll undergo a full-scale investigation on this because there will be whistle-blowers that will claim a double standard because they investigated this and cleared the UNC academic scandal.

Also, typical young black male with no values, spending all his money on jewlery and cars and strip clubs, when he could have been working in the gym classroom and the to become a better person and player. Maybe he would've been drafted.
