The case of Michigan big man Mitch McGary is one that has been debated in many circles on Friday, with a failed drug test during the NCAA tournament heavily influencing his decision to enter the 2014 NBA Draft. Per NCAA rules, which will change in August, testing positive means that the player will be suspended for an entire season and for many that punishment is excessive when considering the drug McGary tested positive for (marijuana).
Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, hosting the “Dan Patrick Show” in place of Dan Patrick, offered up his thoughts on the situation.
Later in the show Mannix was joined by Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports, who addressed the question of why a player who didn’t even play was being tested by the NCAA.
