Moments after winning the national title beating Kentucky 60-54 and right before being name the Most Outstanding Player in the Final Four, Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier had to get something off his chest and it was aimed directly at the NCAA.

Napier now has two national titles under his belt but it sounds like the senior is not ready to forgive the NCAA for banning his “Hungry Huskies” from the tournament during the 2012-2013 season.

“This is what happens when you ban us.”

According to Ryan Wolstat, Napier’s statments were followed up with:

“Ha, NCAA banned Shabazz Napier’s mention of being banned in their post-game handout of his comments. (Ryan Wolstat’s Twitter account, @WolstatSun)

Shabazz Napier calling his teammates the “Hungry Huskies” carries more meaning than what napiermeets the eye as he called out the NCAA before the national title game because he laments at all the money the NCAA and all the other institutions around him are raking in the dough while he is having trouble scraping $3-$4 up to hit McDonald’s dollar menu for something to eat.

Napier appears to be a free slave and I am sure there will be more to come from this talented point guard. LeBron James is lauding him as the best player that will be available in the upcoming NBA draft and it napierjerseywill be interesting to see how his draft status will be with the number of freshman and sophomores that have declared themselves eligible for the draft. One thing for sure, he shouldn’t have to worry about scraping up Mickey D’s money any more.

One thing I know they can’t stand is a Black man that says what is on his mind, like Richard Sherman, but I love it! I hope he continues to speak his mind and hopefully it will spark change.
