Here’s video of Kennedy Meeks leaving for the airport yesterday, and he sure doesn’t look like he blew out his knee. He’s even carrying his own bags (skip to around 1:20). It’s still not clear if he’ll be able to play though. Roy said on Monday night he probably wouldn’t. That would be a huge blow to the Heels, but at least the good news is that KM appears to have a less significant injury than feared.
This is a must-watch. If you like ACC basketball, the UNC-Dook rivalry — hell even if you’re just a college basketball fan — you have to check out this documentary. It’s really well done with seriously great archival footage (watch on grainy VHS as Laettner instigates a massive bench-clearing brawl in high school) and loads of good insight. (Who knew Jalen Rose was so funny and Brian Davis was an f-bomb-dropping OG?) And Laettner himself is a good sport to be part of it all.
Plus, THBTHD’s own Andy is all over this thing. He gets about five more sound bites than Roy Williams. It’s nuts.
Watch it this Sunday! It premieres at 9pm, then repeats the rest of the night.
