If Terrico White plays as well as Denard Robinson, we’ll know why

Perhaps, you’ve heard: Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson – for my money, the best college football player in the country through two weeks – doesn’t tie his shoes. Well, he’s not the only one. From Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Remember last month’s viral video of Terrico White at the NBA’s rookie photo shoot when an impromptu dunk contest broke out? The one where White stole the show from high flyers like Wesley Johnson and John Wall with a 360 windmill that included a between-the-legs element?

Turns out White, the Pistons’ No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft with the 42-inch vertical jump, was performing with a handicap.

“He called me right afterward,” Adam Wilson, White’s personal trainer, laughed Tuesday from the Pistons’ Auburn Hills practice facility. “He was like, ‘You know my shoes weren’t tied.’ I’ve seen him do that stuff a lot in the gym. He’s a phenomenal athlete.”

I’m never tying my shoes again.
