Dear Chris,
I have been thinking of you a lot since I sat glued to the tv during the championship game.
I know that there may be nothing I or anyone else can say to ease the pain and disappointment of what happened.
Still, for whatever it’s worth, you, and your team, were terrific. And part of playing for high stakes under great pressure is the constant risk of mental error. I know I have lost two political races and made countless mistakes over the last twenty years. What matters is the intensity, integrity, and courage you bring to the effort. That is certainly what you have done. You can always regret what occurred but don’t let it get you down or take away the satisfaction of what you have accomplished.
You have a great future. Hang in there.
Sincerely,
Bill Clinton

…And what about the scene when they give the interview before the first Duke game, and Chris and Jalen can barely keep their generic answers together, then Juwan butts in and starts talking like a serial killer about how the Duke game ain’t about youth vs. experience ‘cause they got some experience too– playing public school ball North Texas, south side Chicago, Detroit. So we think it’s going to be an “exciting game” – throw up our 5’s, rep Michigan – and oh by the way don’t call us ”The Fabulous 5”; we want to be called ”Young Gunz.”
