Is Former Georgetown Star Victor Page A Pirate?
This, ladies and gentlemen is a recent mugshot of former Georgetown standout guard Victor Page. Back when he was at Georgetown, I used to think of him and his teammates (especially Allen Iverson) as the epitome of all that is evil in the world, partially because Villanova had the hardest of hard times in beating John Thompson's teams in his latter years, and partially because I was young and not very exposed to "the brothers". That was naivete on my part, but it turns out that Page hasn't helped himself too much in the years since he left Georgetown.
I know this is America, and we love the redemption story, but if you get shot in the eye and don't realize that it's time to make a change, you're probably going to end up in the clink, or six feet under.
Maybe this is time for Big John to step in and try to help his former charge, but if Fred Brown was telling the truth, JT2 isn't all that compassionate to players unless they found success in the NBA.
