Gorgui Dieng came in to Best Buy this evening to buy some software. It would have taken a normal person about five minutes. It took Mr. Dieng about an hour and a half. The reason it took so long? He was inundated with people wanting to shake his hand, take his picture, etc.
Let me tell you this: not one time did he seem irritated, bothered, or in any way inconvenienced. He talked to each and every person that wanted to talk to him. He bent down to talk to children. He shook hands and looked people directly in the eye when he talked to them. He posed for endless pictures.
I am a UK fan. I have never met any of the current Wildcat Basketball players. I will say this without a hesitation: it is absolutely impossible that any one of them could be more classy or friendly than Gorgui Dieng. They may be equally as good of guys, but I don't think it is possible to be a better ambassador for a program.
