    Was Tim Floyd a traitor?

    I'm reading Roy Williams book, "Hard Work, a life on and off the court." He explains he saw Tim Floyd at a player camp Floyd told him about a commit he had, Kirk Hinrich. Floyd said,"When I go to the Bulls, Iowa State is going to lost a commitment from a kid from Sioux City who is a Kansas player if I've ever seen one."
    Williams said, "Is that the Hinrich kid?"
    Floyd, "Ya, you will love him, just watch him while you are out here."

    The kid changed his commitment to Kansas.

    Floyd left for the Bulls, which he brought down by driving off Jordan, and later got caught cheating at USC, paying the players cash. Given that stuff, nothing about him surprises me.

    Floyd has nothing to do with Jordan leaving as far as I know.

    Re: Was Tim Floyd a traitor?

    Tim Floyd's only loyalty is to Tim Floyd no matter where he is at. While I have NO DOUBT that Roy Williams likes Roy Williams (a lot), I also think he really loves and is truly loyal to KU and UNC.

    Exactly.. I dont know where the previous poster thought that he had anything to do with it. It was all the Jerry's fault. Timmy was just a friend of the one Jerry.

    Re: Was Tim Floyd a traitor?

    True or not, I'm happy it happened because if it didn't, we don't get Tinsley. If we don't get Tinsley, there's no way we make the Elite 8 with a freshman point guard. During Kirk's Junior and Senior seasons, we didn't have enough good players for a good team anyway. Maybe Floyd was looking out for us after all

    I really dont think the two of them really got along very well. I find it hard to believe Floyd would help Roy out over his old buddy LE.

    Floyd did the same thing cheez did, used us as a stepping stone and lied to us on the way out the door. Only difference is he won some games.

    Chiz didnt leave with a small chance to coach the best player of all time or coach the defending pro champs.
