    Because the pay for her position was talked about on multiple boards at the time of the purchase. But since you have the answers that no one seems to have, feel free to post which relative he secretly got his money from. I mean, Lance won't and has sealed everything......but you should have no trouble.

    Might be because they did not want to be in the public eye and Lance said it was ok they did not.

    I seem to recall you saying many many many many many many that the NCAA could presume him guilty without proof.

    So why didnt they?

    Sadly none came forward to say they gave him money. Might be because they didn't.

    So you are sayiing he went to a jewelry store put down 30k and based on that 30k down payment was given some time to pay the remainder of the bill.

    Pretty simple business transaction if you ask me.

    None of your business where he got the money or if the store owner agreed to let him pay the money back in a certain period of time.

    Happens every day.

    "QUACK, QUACK, QUACK!!!" - Lance Thomas

    But it sounds like he's calling UNC's decades of academic fraud going back to Dean Smith's first championship "a duck" or something...

    Lance was sued by a New York company based on his purchase of five pieces of jewelry at a cost of $97,800 while he was enrolled at Duke University. Rafaello & Co. extended Thomas a line of credit for $67,800 so he would have the funds to purchase the jewelry. Thomas was required to, and delivered a $30,000 down payment.

    If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and waggles like a duck...it is highly likely it is a duck (and endless keystrokes from bogey does not change Lance from being a duck).

    What indication do you have that Lance Thomas' family didn't have any money? What do you have to show that his mother was only making $50K a year? Given that the median hourly wage for assembly line workers at the Big 3 plans is $27 which works out to $56K annually it would seem rather odd that someone in management would be making less than that. Especially someone who lives in a town where the median household income is $97K.

    And, as 903 pointed out, Thomas' mother wasn't his only relative. As Jeff Goodman wrote at the time, Thomas' uncle Monty was a business owner who made certain that his nephew didn't lack for anything.

    Finally, terrific work on that rent stuff. You would almost have a point if by "during the same period could not afford his rent" you meant "a few months after he couldn't afford his rent." You know... actions that would be consistent with someone who blew a nest egg of cash his family had given him.

    Sorry for the paragraphs - I know it can take a lot of time to sound out all those words.

    Unlike Lance, Henson's family had money.

    And the 30K from someone who during the same period could not afford his rent was an issue, especially since his mother was only making 50K or so a year at the time.

    When John Henson was at UNC he was driving around in a new Chevy Yukon worth $40K. Did the NCAA have the right to demand proof of where the money for that vehicle came from? Does simply having something constitute enough grounds to open an investigation?

    The issue with Thomas should never have been where the down payment came from unless there was adequate indication it originated from sources outside his family or friendships that originated after he was identified as a potential college athlete.

    The only issue is if the loan from the store was based on Thomas' potential future earnings as an athlete which is far from a certainty. Given Thomas' modest regard in the basketball world at the time (he was averaging just 5 ppg and went on to spend the next 2 years in the D league earning $25K a year) and the terms of the contract (demanding payment in a matter of days) it seems unlikely that would be the case.

    I'm not a college basketball player with no obvious source of income who somehow suddenly has $30,000 to spend and somehow obtains a $70,000 loan, two circumstances that obviously raise a question of impermissible benefits, and then, when the matter is publicized, refuses to discuss it, further raising suspicion among objective observers. If I'm ever in that position, get back to me.
