P.J. is gone and his days at North Carolina are done….Many of you didn’t think it would end this way, but quite a few of you did…
Where does P.J. go from here???
Many of us here locally have been following this kid for many years, and where does he end up at next…..
I’m not so worried now about what happened in the past, it won’t do any good to sit around stewing about that, but what will P.J.’s next move be and I hope it is good one and that it turns out to be a positive move….
Mamy might just say that the P.J. Hairston days are over at the University of North Carolina and they could care less what happens next, but you know, I still hold out hope that P.J. Hairston will find his way and make it good way, doing something positive with his basketball skills…
Only time will tell, and we have time on our hands, so we will wait and see….Still looking for some good signs from P.J. Hairston….He is a young man that still has future, where he can make something bad turn into something good….
from North Carolina basketball coach Rpy Williams at www.news-record.com…..
“I am extremely disappointed for P.J., his family and our team as he will no longer be playing basketball at North Carolina,” says head coach Roy Williams. “P.J. made mistakes and I was very disappointed by his actions and now he is suffering the very difficult consequences. He is not a bad kid; he just made some mistakes.
“Since summer, P.J. has been outstanding with our basketball program and with his schoolwork. He went through an extremely intense conditioning program with flying colors. He has been called a ‘perfect teammate’ by one of our other players. He has dominated our practices and at times has been as good as any perimeter player I have ever coached, giving great effort to help our team. He cares deeply about Carolina and the basketball program.
“P.J. has learned from this experience and will continue to grow as a player and adult. I will support him and help him as much as I possibly can as he enters this next phase of his life and basketball career.”
