Just listened to an interview with Kim English on the way in. I'm not sure I've listened to anyone talk more openly, yet in a respectful way. Doesn't give any of the non-answer answers.
He hit on a wide variety of topics, but off the top of my head, said Henderson is an average to below average player who would have hardly been heard from if it wasn't for his, as English put it, disrespect for the game. Says he has no problem with him playing that way, but would have loved to play against him at the same time because beating them is the best way to shut them up.
On MU vs. SLU, said that while he respects Majerus, Majerus was just wrong when he said MU wouldn't call SLU back. He was in the office when it was being discussed on the phone with SLU. Said he has no problem with playing SLU in a home and home, though he realizes SLU would have a lot more to gain.
Said he still plans to play 9 more years and 13 games in the NBA and would still like to coach (though NBA front office positions now intrigue him too) and that there's only one university he'd want to coach at.
Talked about his dislike for MA. If MA would have stayed, he would have left. Said the only person that really was torn about MA leaving was Bowers, who had developed a closer relationship with MA. Said his problems with MA dealt with both personal issues as well as his coaching or lack of it.
Not a ton of new stuff, but really is refreshing listening to someone who is articulate and willing to speak their mind but able to do it in a respectful manner.
ETA - He also talked about the Haith - MA altercation in the last game. Said it was directly about MA's comment on giving Pressey that shot all night long, though that may have helped lead to the build up. Kim said after Ross was fouled, Haith got pissed about the foul, looking out for his players, and jumped out on the Court hollering and fist pumping. MA told him to sit down and simmer down. With that Haith let MA have it and told him to worry about his team and he'll coach his, along with a few choice words I assume.
