Like Odartey Blankson, Dameon Mason, Karon Bradley, and Ryan Amoroso before him, Nick Williams has apparently decided he's had enough of Tom Crean's shit and is getting the rock out of Dodge.
I realize the circumstances of every transfer are different. Some guys -- Karon, Krunti Hester, Kevin Menard -- just weren't high major players, and were never going to become high major players. Some -- hello, Trevor Mbakwe -- are just headcases.
But then there are guys like Blankson, D-Mase and Nick Williams. Maybe they've got a bit of the headcase bug; I know we were quick to slap the "getting bad advice and listening to it" tag on ODB when he transferred to UNLV after a solid sophomore season. On the other hand, I don't think I've heard any of the three say anything positive about Crean ("he helped my career," "this is a decision for me, not a knock on Marquette," that kind of thing) after he left.
Maybe this is an Occam's Razor situation. For example: You know how there are people who claim to have the worst luck with friends? Where every "friend" this person has turns out to be (1) an asshole; (2) a liar; or (3) a budding felon? On closer inspection, it usually turns out that the problem is with the person, not with the supposed "friends." That's the simplest explanation, and, more times than not, it's the answer.
Perhaps the same is true of Crean. Maybe the issue isn't with the kids; maybe the issue is with him. When a kid like Nick Williams -- a kid who he recruited for two years at Marquette and who followed him like a sheep to Indiana -- decides to move on, it sure seems that way.
