EliteDaily- A rather amusing email, in which a recently departed Ohio State basketball player asked his classmates for help with an essay, has surfaced.
LaQuinton Ross, who forfeited his senior year to enter the 2014 NBA Draft, sent this message to his peers last year after being “lost” with an assignment.
Well, I guess it doesn't matter now since he already left school for the NBA Draft. However, this is a bad look for his classmates. For shame. The kid is just trying to do better in school. He admitted he was having a touch time with the assignment. Throw the kid a bone. Furthermore, He already left school. Don't air him out on the internet. There's two parties in the classroom. The professor and the students. Students are supposed to have an unspoken bond to help each other out.
You ever innocently miss a few lectures in college and need to snag the notes from a classmate? Was there anything worse then the person that would refuse to give them to you based on some self righteous notion that he/she was better than you for attending class? I didn't think so. This kid didn't ask someone to write the paper for him. Well, maybe that's what he was inferring, but he certainly didn't word it that way. Can't someone just give LaQuinton a hand and get him pointed in the right direction?
Geez, this isn't a North Carolina situation. At least he was taking real classes and had to write real papers to earn his grade. So he's no the sharpest knife in the box. Does anyone expect a star basketball player at a major university to be the valedictorian? The student that released this is a pompous asshole. LaQuinton Ross meant more to the university than the person who released this ever did. That much is certain. Don't share his email with negative intentions when all he was doing was trying to do was improve himself.
By the way, absolutely hilarious that this kid felt he needed to elaborate on who he was. Pretty sure his classmates didn't think LaQuinton Ross was the Jewish girl with glasses sitting in the front. You play for the basketball team dude. Everyone knows who you are. You were probably 12 inches taller than everyone in class. Your presence wasn't exactly subtle.
