I'm inclined to believe Will Lyles' story about Oregon luring Lache Seastrunk with ultra-rare Jordans because if he were making it up -- it's Oregon and Nike and Phil Knight we're talking about, and you could make just about anything sound plausible where those combined parties are concerned. "This young man wants an emerald-encrusted rocket ship that runs on liquid gold in the shape of our beloved mascot, Puddles? Alrighty, then!" Really, they lowballed the kid.â†µ
