Dawn is running the show, Diamond won't be just because she think she is Jordan, Diamond will have to play the way Dawn wants her to. If Diamond has a problem take orders she is probably not going to be "happy" here or anywhere or anytime for her life, because we all have someone telling us what to do and how to do things. That is how life is. So we'll just have to see is she can develop a team mentality and not be so demanding about how she is being coached.
I am assuming you are not 19 anymore and God forbid a 19 year old make a bad decision. I trust Dawn can build our team (as she has proved) and there is nothing positive from this speculation.

This is nothing but gossip and a quasi accusation that our coaching staff can't field a team that plays well together. You should stop talking about a college student like you know them personally, it is not flattering.

Well if she isn't comfortable accepting coaching, than I'm going to have to agree with those that said I would rather not want her here. When Kelsey Bone left we were a bad team. UNC just had a historic recruiting class, went to the Elite 8, beat us twice. The ACC has ND Maryland and Duke too. NC State isn't bad either. They are probably the best conference in WBB especially now that Louisville is joining.

I don't have to know someone personally to know some things about them because they show who they are bits and pieces at a time with how they behave. I am all for take on Diamond to Deshields, but to pretend she doesn't have some red flags is asinine. You accept that and say we can make Diamond a better player.

I think everyone is assuming that reason she was unhappy was not HER fault. When someone is not happy is usually IS their own fault. She had many reasons to be happy at UNC and very few not to be. That's a red flag.

Even more ludicrous, they have 3 national titles in the history of woman's basketball, notre dame and louisville bring in more titles then the rest of the conference combined and all of them combined are 1 more than ten! So Bone left because we were a bad team not because she did not get along with someone? Have you spoken to Diamond? I have spoken to a few people in the know in north Carolina athletics and none have speculated or assumed a thing, they do not know why she decided to transfer and tell me she was a delight to have in the program!

Unless someone here is friends or family with Diamond, none of us really know about her situation. From the little bit I have seen, it seems like the coaching staff at UNC was surprised that she wanted to leave, that they *didn't* want her to leave, so I don't get the sense that she was giving the coaching staff a difficult time while she was there. Everything that she and her mom have said about leaving UNC has been about how she was not getting the "whole" experience there, which I take to mean that she was missing her friends (and family). (I'm hoping our proximity to Georgia works in our favor.) She's made it clear that she wants to play with T'ea Cooper. (I'm a little surprised that T'ea came to visit too, because some people think she is a TN lock, but I don't fault the 'gal pals' for wanting to find a good situation where they can play together. BTW, isn't that a photo of the two of them together on T'ea's twitter feed?) I echo the others on this thread who said that Dawn would not have brought her in for a visit if she was concerned about coaching her, and I would definitely have the "problem" of having too much talent rather than too little.

Why does everyone assume she had issues ? Maybe the coach at UNC had issues...maybe her teammates had issues. Leaving a program is a red flag ?....at 17 that is normal. I didn't know who or what I wanted at 17 and most don't. This is overkill on this thread. I would trust the coaches...hope things work out and get on with it. This girl didn't like the situation she was in and decided to leave. That sounds like good sound decision making to me. I would NEVER suggest anyone (including any player at South Carolina) stick it out if they are not happy. People that question every little thing about someone else has major problems of their own they need to deal with. I hope she finds a place to be happy and Dawn could make that possible.....or not.

Your writing, grammar, spelling, typing is a red flag you have issues. She only needs one reason to be at a college, she wants to be and she decided she does not want to be at north Carolina and that is all YOU know!

Well I was checking on this thread for legitimate updates on her status, but since it has been taken over by certain personalities who prefer pontificate on their speculations over and over again I will be taking a hiatus and just trying to find my information on other sources.

How many times have already said I had a bad opinion about her attitude BEFORE it got out she was going to transfer? You must have not have watched her very much this year. Did you see her in a lot of other games that weren't against USC? She acts a damn fool some times. This is know about her. She doesn't shy away from the spotlight or controversy, she invites it.

Anyways, I have seen enough of her that I am entitled to my opinion of her. That opinion is she is a great player, would love to have her, but she needs to grow up. I am not down with using youth as an excuse for poor behavior. Maybe youth makes it forgivable but it doesn't make poor behavior acceptable. So everyone needs to stop bringing up her age. She was 18 she's not 10. She's old enough to show a little more class.

Judging by her Twitter account, I think the picture is becoming clearer.

That's legit, Read. Speaking for myself, I've only seen her in that one game where she spanked us, and I thought she was impressive on the court.

Is there anything you have seen about her that would make you doubt Coach Staley's ability to handle her? I don't think coach is the type to back down (though she seems to have the players interests' at heart). Obviously, the homesick Kelsey Bone didn't like having her tailbone kicked by Coach S.
