Oh, the irony. The DukeBasketballReport.com website has posted the following jovial blog entry about Dalonte Hill:
Duke Basketball Report has generally been one of the top-notch fan sites for college basketball. It comes with the typical swarmy and arrogant Duke attitude that we have come to know and abhor. But, it is still highly informative, well-written and occasionally insightful. It usually pokes fun at other team's misfortunes when appropriate.
However, their cavalier attitude about Dalonte Hill's very serious problems is classless and callous. They use this situation as an opportunity to poke fun at Dalonte Hill and Maryland. Also, it implies that Dalonte Hill's much-needed rehab is no more serious than a rehab stint by Lindsay Lohan. To the contrary, this is a very serious issue in which MD is correct to continue to support Dalonte Hill. MD has offered financial support by continuing to employ him even though he is most likely finished as a coach at MD.
The irony, of course, is how Duke takes pride in conducting themselves with the utmost propriety and class to the point where they seem to take themselves too seriously. DBR has used this very serious situation as an opportunity for a punchline like some two-bit comedian. Meanwhile, the MD administration is showing true class and empathy by supporting Dalonte Hill even though Dalonte will most likely never coach for MD again.
