Editor's Note: The story should have said that Chambers is the only player drafted by Miami since '99 to make the Pro Bowl. SI regrets the error.
As a longtime Illini family, we've never had great love for Indiana. However, we did always have respect for its basketball teams during the Knight and Davis eras. In a very short time, though, with Kelvin Sampson onboard, Indiana has shown that it no longer cares about running a clean program (Players, Nov.�12). By condoning Sampson's recruiting tactics, Indiana has shrouded itself and its basketball program in disgrace. Kudos to Kent Benson for recognizing how his school has changed since he was a student.

As an 18-year-old I felt as if I were reading about one of my own friends with your story on Kevin Durant's first week in the NBA (The Kid Enters the Picture, Nov.�12). I can imagine one of my friends thinking about asking for an autograph from Carmelo and staring at the dance team. Durant is perhaps the biggest celebrity in the state of Washington, but he still lives with his mom and plays video games with the neighborhood kids. Let's hope that KD keeps his good nature throughout what will be an illustrious NBA career.
