    "limelight this year"....

    yet the article speaks to this having been in the works for the better part of a year.

    I will admit though, your conspiracy theories are nothing, if not amusing.

    What foundation? The foundation of his new house? You think if he named the foundation others would give also?

    This is strictly a business decision and I have no problem with it, none. He played pro ball a long time ago before big contracts etc.. He is not Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson or Larry Bird. He is taking advantage of NCState being in the limelight this year and his stuff being more valuable because of it. With NC State being so bad for so long the opportunities for him to capitalize on his fame were limited to the local audience. I think it is a smart move to sell stuff he doesn't want when it is at the highest return.

    How he uses that money is his business also - I have never heard that his wife is sick to the point that it puts them in a financial bind - link me if you don't mind. The problem I have is State Fans wanting to come on here and make it something other than it is - a smart business decision

    I hope he gets enough to live a comfortable retirement - it's a shame he turned into a poster child for what typically happens to a well-paid young pro who squandered his fortune on drugs, and poor financial planning/management.

    He truly was one of the best college basketball players I ever saw in action, if not the best. If he took care of his money the way he played the game - he'd be richer than Warren Buffet today.

    Good luck on the auction DT!

    There are no NCAA issues with the school buying these items through the auction site or from him directly.

    This is where NCSU faithful who brag about having a ton of money, ex: ScottyTwist, and brag about living in a huge house in the best neighborhood should step it up. Since DY has already lamented about the Pack being 11th in the league in donations, I'm not sure David to get a lot out of the NCSU fanbase. We will see. Time for John Murphy to open his wallet. What about you ChickenSAC, you brag quite a bit on here, how about show us your game? I'd buy some stuff if I had the bones. Great guy and the greatest of players.

    “He just decided he wanted to do this,” Kohler said. Kohler said Thompson told him some of the money will go to a foundation.

    Being right, hardly ever sucks!
