Remember all of the harsh criticism Daniel Orton received when he announced he was leaving for the NBA? Well, D.O. has come to his senses (sort of) to issue a formal apology to the BBN through Twitter. Here it goes:
“Okay there are some things that I’ve been needing to address, but I was trying to focus my attention elsewhere. As far as the classes I want to apologize for not doing what I said I would. I messed up bigtime and hope I can be somewhat forgiven. I messed up on a few due dates on my online class and I just lost focus in school. I apologize. Then the thing about the Kansas comment. I was more so set up on that question. We all know the media and how they like to get people but i was asked was there any other school that I would have gone to. At first I said No because I loved UK and I loved my experience and my teammates there. Then he proceeded to say. I know Kansas was recruiting you hard, you never had any thoughts of maybe you should have gone there? Of course I thought that at times I won’t lie about that I’m sure atleast two Players on every college team this year question their decision but in the end I am happy that I went to UK. As far as leavin early, I cant Really justify myself there. So sorry UK fans love yall and yall are the best Ima miss it!”
So there you have it. Orton does feel sorry for losing focus in school and says he was happy during his time at UK. Let’s all move on and wish Orton well during his time in the pros and in life.
Once a Cat, always a Cat!
