If you don't know much about Frank Kaminsky let me fill you in, he's a 7ft power forward/center for the Wisconsin Badgers and in his Junior season with the University, he lead his team to the Final Four and was named West Regional Most Outstanding Player.
If Kaminsky was to enter the draft, he would be a highly touted prospect, but perhaps the most surprising aspect about this future NBA player is his decision to stay in school and avoid the league for one more season.
Not only that, but shockingly he has been quoted as saying his decision to return to Wisconsin is because the NBA is: "Flat out boring"
'Frank the tank' wrote to his Wisconsin fans on Wednesday and spoke about his reasoning for coming back home, his choice of explanation is sure to delight Badger fans but also takes a few shots at the National Basketball League.
Kaminsky wrote: "I am at the pinnacle of my basketball playing career, at least in my eyes, I know the NBA has their crazy fans and all, but if you look at all of their games, there are games when teams like the Bobcats get hardly any fans, and it looks flat out boring. At the Kohl Center, we play in front of nearly 17,000 fans every single time we step onto the court. When we travel, we play in front of sell out crowds who absolutely hate us. Not because of who is on the team, but because of where we go to school. Who could leave that?”
Obviously the killer quote that will be taken away from his letter is that the NBA is "flat out boring" and his particular criticism of the Michael Jordan-owned Charlotte Bobcats.
Although, what shouldn't be overshadowed in all of this is the underlying loyalty and love for the college game which not many athletes show any more. The decision for the 21-year-old to stay in college should be applauded and celebrated for bringing a sense of justice back to college basketball.
He commends the fans passion they show for their team and believes the NBA can learn from its younger brother in college.
Kaminsky is ignoring the big pay day he could receiver for another year in college, he believes that if he did not follow through for another season at Wisconsin he would regret it for the rest of his life.
Most people may not understand his decision but something seems admirable about the young man's decision to return to school.
