Kenny Smith says Dean Smith's check 'is going in a frame'
When former North Carolina coach Dean Smith left every player who earned a varsity letter under him $200 in his will, everyone wanted to know what the players would do with the money.
Former Tar Heels star Kenny Smith was a guest on SI Now Wednesday and revealed what he plans to do with his check.
"Well, the $200 is going a frame," Smith said. "There's twice in my life where he's actually given me a check. Once he gave it to me after I spoke at a camp. I looked at him like 'Coach, are you serious?' So I ripped that check up, honestly. This is the one I'm gonna keep. It's gonna be in a frame."
Smith added that he and a few former teammates are going to get together in Indianapolis at the Final Four for a meal and talk about what their coach taught them. That's what Dean Smith wanted to happen, Kenny Smith said.
