The issue, Mr. Forde, is that it’s not Krzyzewski promoting the perception that you outlined. It’s you. And Dick Vitale. And countless other members of the basketball media who point to Duke’s spotless image as a reason for their readers to either hate the program or to love it. Are we really that concerned with the back story of Lance Thomas and his apparent issues with managing his personal finances? Or is it more that we’re concerned with the damage of one of the most overused narratives in all of college athletics? It’s certainly reading like it’s more of the latter.
