Stan Van Gundy was critical of both the NCAA and the NBA's one-and-done rule that prohibits American-born basketball players from entering the NBA directly from high school.
“People that were against (players) coming out (of high school) made a lot of excuses, but I think a lot of it was racist," said Van Gundy. "I’ve never heard anybody go up in arms about (minor-league baseball or hockey)."
Van Gundy's comments came in response to allegations that money was funneled to college basketball players with the assistance of several coaches.
“The NCAA is one of the worst organizations – maybe the worst organization – in sports. They certainly don’t care about the athlete.”
