When the Milwaukee Bucks fill out their Developmental League team roster here in Oshkosh this fall, one player that would be really cool to have is Wisconsin Badgers forward Nigel Hayes. I say that not just because I like Nigel--or that I think he likely wouldn't stick with an NBA team--but it would be cool to maybe have his mother around Oshkosh too.
This week, Talaya Davis wrote a heartfelt letter to the UW Basketball program and its fans thanking them for their support of her son.
There would be a certain irony to the situation if say four or five years from now, it was Nigel Hayes starring in the NBA and Lonzo Ball trying to hang on playing D League ball in Oshkosh. I think we might know what caused that looking back on this year.
