When faced with the choice of rooting for the hometown team or the team with a CU Buff, you always go Buff. Go Spurs!
**** THAT! They're paid pros now, and I'll root for them every other week/game. But against my Broncos or Nuggets - I'm rooting for the team. The team is always above the individuals, and I'm rooting for the team. I hope DWhite and the Spurs all struggle mightily tomorrow in a lopsided Nuggets win. If Viska gets drafted by an AFC West team, I hope he gets 0 touches every time the Broncos play his team. CU Alum can go off against ever other team aside from the team I'm rooting for. Again, Team >>>>> Individual Players. **** the spurs........

I will ALWAYS cheer for a CU player over my favorite pro sports team. A pro sports team is a business, and the owners can take their team to any other city they choose when they feel like it.

A CU player is a fellow alumn, and we will always have that CU connection. They can never NOT be a CU alumn.

Derrick White had a great year with the Buffs but is sort of a limited fellow alum with only 2 years of school. Sure he’s a Buff - and a Coloradoan - and the way he was dissed makes it satisfying to see his success - but he’s now a pro and will leave SA in a heartbeat if & when he gets an $$opportunity$$. He’s in a new ballgame now (literally). And I’m fine with that. Go Nuggets!!

The thing with White is that I only got to cheer for him 1 season and it was a season that frustrated the hell out of me with the team performance. He was great and he’s been a great Buff alum, but I don’t have those same memories of joy like I do with Spencer, Dre or even Alec. I’m not as emotional with the Spurs as I would be about Brooklyn going on a run.

Brooklyn is just getting started. I think they'll be good for years to come.

So White gut cut back down to size a bit in the second half of the Denver series. But hey, he played pretty amazing for his first actual year in the NBA.

That season was absolutely wasted on DWhite. So disappointing that was his only season in B&G. He deserved better than that.

That's awesome. Thanks guys...Higgins is one of my all time faves. The guy was so critical to our program during a fragile time. Yeah, Bz got Burks later but Higgins helped provide a solid base when I really wasn't sure where we were headed (post RP). Good luck Cory!!!

Derrick was on News 4 xfinity Monday Live with Michael Spencer. This is the first extended interview I’ve ever heard from him and he was really great. Very well spoken and confident.

He had really nice things to say about CU and Tad as well. Said Pop’s focus for him was believing in himself and knowing he belongs.

They also showed him doing a Special Olympics function in San Antonio. It showed him with the kids and he was really great with them. He looked like he was genuinely enjoying himself and engaged.

Said CU was “amazing.” Talked about how well Buffs are doing in the NBA. Said “Tad is always inviting us back to CU.”

Most important though was Spencer asked him “In-N-Out or Whataburger?” His answer? “Umm, I’m not a big fan of either. But since I’m in San Antonio I’m going to say Whataburger. I think In-N-Out is overrated and Whataburger, it’s, it’s aright.”

“Okay, so what’s your favorite burger spot!”

Drum roll please.......................

“Umm, I like Five Guys.” Haha

Spencer asked if they had a Chris Madrid’s and told him to put it on his list. I’ve never heard of Chris Madrid’s.

The European journey took Higgins from Russia to Turkey and then back to Russia with CSKA. Now, Higgins is currently playing the best basketball in his career and has won everything there is to win in Europe.
An NBA return and trying to establishing himself in the league could be the step for Higgins.
“I know I can play there [NBA], of course,” Higgins said to Eurohoops. “But I’m going to explore everything and pick the best situation for my family.”
