Jeff Coby Rumors
The part-time painter double-majored in art history and sociology and finished with a 3.0 GPA. “I’ll take it,’’ Coby said. “It was extremely hard playing Division I [with two majors]. You have to really be disciplined with time management.” Coby said he believes NBA scouts essentially ignore Columbia. “[Spanish League] was the only thing I had,’’ Coby said. “It 100 percent hurt me. My teammate [Luke Petrasek of the Hornets’ G-League team], it hurt him as well. There’s always going to be people telling you [that] you can’t. You can’t listen to it. I’m 100 percent trying to make it in the NBA. I got my foot in the door. I’m here. You keep working and never know what can happen.”
