The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Jordan Dumars, the son of former Pistons’ star Joe Dumars, will be a walk-on at Michigan. Oh, and he’s a 3-point shooter, apparently:
Dumars said he is a three-point shooter and that’s why U-M coach John Beilein’s offense fits him well.
Truthfully, I can say that I’m a Pulitzer Prize winning writer, though just saying it doesn’t make it so. (Neither does saying Belein’s offense is for shooters — he’s not in West Virginia anymore.)
And have you ever seen a walk-on get in the paper and talk about going to a system that fits his game? What about talking about his short list of schools — the schools he’s leaning toward.
I say shame on all the media lapdogs who have hyped Dumars for three years because he’s his father’s son. It’s a complete joke.
