Parts II and III of WTVH's interview with Donte Greene are up. Some highlights below...

On how and when he first started feeling that might leave school after one season:
"At the end of the season [I was] definitely playing well. A lot of the mock drafts and a lot of the, you know, scouts were telling me that I was, you know, definitely a top five pick."
So there you have it. Donte Greene left Syracuse because of DraftExpress.com. Thanks, guys.

On his original intentions to spend at least two seasons at SU:
"Talking to Coach Beoheim and talking to Coach [Rob] Murphy, and talking to my family was important. And they were definitely supportive and definitely thought I could do it.
On the risks he faced if he had come back for another season:
"I could, you know, tear my ACL, you know...do something, and be out for a while. Won't be the same player as I was my first year. So, you never know. Shots...you know, we both got Andy and Eric coming back to the team, you know, they're great players. A lot of shots might not be there."
On his legacy had he stayed at Syracuse longer:
"I think about it all the time. I think about my legacy. Definitely probably would have been up there with G-Mac if I probably would have stayed all four years, you know. But it was definitely the greatest year of my life."
I'm not even touching that one.
