I want to say this, because I'm sure most pack fans feel how i feel and its hasn't be out right said yet, and i do believe it deserves its own thread.
You have worked your ass off for three years to better your self, not only as a student and athlete but as a person. You were the heart and soul of this pack, and we all hate to see you leave. that said we understand that there are things more important than basketball and you need to do right by your family. I hope where ever you end up you continue to flourish and grow. and we will always remember that no matter where you graduate from. you are ALWAYS a member of the pack.
Good Luck and Godspeed in your future endeavors.
Sincerely, wolfpack nation.
Bummed, but hope all works out for he and his family.
will definitely co-sign on that. Best of luck big guy. Even when you play us. Still hope you lose though hahaha
Signed.... Good luck Paint!
Can't believe he'd leave without a major family issue.
Good luck Paint.
We were going to bring Paint rollers to the games next season too, to go along with the "Howell Towel".
Best of luck!
Best of Luck BIG MAN! You'll be missed for sure.

Why don't they just use the standard audio at the RBC, and introduce him as Richard hoooOOOowwwl?
As far as Painter, I'm still very upset about it. GOOD LUCK MY MAN!!!

Forever a place in my heart for the one voted by the team to have the worst "hair" cut...
Good luck Dijon Painter. Long Live the Mustard Man.
"hair"cut??? That's putting it a little mildly, wouldn't you think???

I was really impressed with how much better he got towards the end of the year. Early on when Powell got into foul trouble, it was a downhill slide from then on, but towards the end of the year, I just didn't see that, and in a few occasions we even seemed to play a little better. I LOVE it when a player pushes himself like that.
Wish you the best....and more importantly, I want to say that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!
Apparently he is really proud of his shaq-like bald style. But the rest of the team thinks its pretty hilarious.
Great post newclass,
Thanks DP, you helped bring the Pack back.
<----------------signed. Good luck big guy, once a Wolf ALWAYS a Wolf!
I wish you the best Painter, and I pray all will be well with your family.
<--------------signed. BTW newclass 13, you're a Class Act.
^ Agreed. But Spelling Bee participant? Um, no, not exactly.

Paint, you're the type of kid the makes college sports so great to begin with. You worked your ass off for us, and it showed in how much you improved. Best of luck in the future, and I hope it all works out ok with your family. We'll be praying for you guys.
You are one of the hardest workers we have had in your time (also loved Josh Davis and Julius "Bobblehead" Mays). While you were one of our hardest workers, you still scared the piss out of me on more than one occasion (Princeton to name one). I have paterned my game after you, CJ Williams, and Richard Howell, but I think you have the greatest work ethic of the 3. You made Gottfried look like a rag doll and that will be my fondest memory of you. Good luck and God Bless!
You were always hungry, and you always ate!
"Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations;
I will be exalted in the earth.

The God of Jacob is our protector."
