There was ample fanfare when Nasir Little declared his intentions to play for Roy Williams at the University of North Carolina. But the highly-coveted recruit, who was a sure-fire one-and-done after a brief stint in Chapel Hill, became a bench player for Williams. Clearly, that’s not what he or anyone at North Carolina envisioned for him.
He’s struggled to adapt to Williams’ coaching style, which can’t bode well for when he gets to the NBA and is expected to act like a professional from Day 1, despite still being a teenager when he’s drafted. On top of that, he’s also struggled with the change in competitiveness at the college level. If he’s struggled in college, what’s going to happen when he plays the best basketball players in the world?
