Syracuse Basketball: Malachi Richardson Would Prefer It If You Didn't

Mali has had it already with people talking about his impending decision.

Immediately following the Syracuse Orange's loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Final Four, questions began about the future for Tyler Lydon and Malachi Richardson. Lydon mostly shut down any further talk by saying he would definitely return (though his quote isn't quite as ironclad as it seems). As for Richardson, he chose not to comment and, though he is well within his rights to do so, that set off the speculation train.

The presumption has been that Richardson will at least test NBA Waters under the new rule that gives him plenty of time to find out when he might get picked before deciding once and for all.

Before he makes that decision public, however, Richardson has had to listen to a lot of people talk about it and whether or not it's a good idea. He's kinda over it.

He's right, but, that's never stopped sports fans from adding their two cents before. Consider it part of the process of being a professional athlete. You do you, Mali. Everyone else will be fine, even if they don't seem like it right now.
