This week on 55…..
We talk the dismissal of Chris Jones. We also cover other Louisville men who aren’t sure they want to be Louisville men anymore. Rankings, rankings and rankings. ACC MVP? Also big news in the land of CSZ to talk about and I can’t wait to share it. We also have some combine results and assessments. On ESPN/ESPN2 tonight CardNation takes over and we say good bye to a friend of the site, Elle Raiser. So here we go.
Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..
The following is an excerpt from Jeff Greer’s article in the Courier-Journal. After doing some extensive research, Greer has learned that Chris Jones plans to visit John Lucas to work on anger management. Lucas is a former NBA player and coach who runs a program in Houston to help athletes overcome different issues such as drugs, alcohol, and anger management. Chane Behanan also worked with Lucas for quite some time after he left Louisville last season.
Remember when Louisville was playing at SMU and Luke Hancock was trying to dribble the clock out and not run up the score? Then the SMU player stole and ball and tried to dunk, so Luke dribbled down court and found Montrezl Harrell who pretty much ripped down the goal, and SMU fans got mad. Remember that? Luke then posted on instagram that if they want to play until the buzzer, then we will too.
Well John Lucas, who plays for the Utah Jazz, apparently also wants to play until the buzzer when his team is getting dominated. The Rockets are trying to just dribble it out, and he wants to steal it and still play, so Francisco Garcia chases him down and still plays defense. Then Lucas goes into full out “big baby” mode.
He then realizes he wants no part of Cisco.

The following article was written by Jason King of BleacherReport.com. It is a great read. He interviewed former Card Chane Behanan and Behanan goes into detail about some of his problems at UofL. He talks about going to Houston and what John Lucas has done for him. I will post the first half of it and then provide the link to read the rest on the actual site.
HOUSTON—As he smoked marijuana in the streets of Miami, just a few blocks from the team hotel, Chane Behanan said he felt much like he did the night he helped Louisville win the 2013 NCAA title.
“Like no one could touch me,” Behanan said.
Not the Miami police, who could’ve arrested Behanan had they seen him taking tokes from a joint during that nighttime stroll in late December. Not coach Rick Pitino, who had suspended the 6’6” junior for a month in the fall because of his weed habit. And certainly not the University of Louisville and its silly random drug tests.
