Do the names Michael Carter-Williams and C.J. Fair ring a bell? If you’re a Cuse fan, they should. Michael and C.J. are two of Syracuse’s finest on the basketball court, and recently they joined Donna Ditota from to give the sport of lacrosse a try…

Our favorite quote from the video has got to be “I never played lacrosse, but today you’ll see that I’m Michael Jordan out there.” Glad these guys stepped on the field with some confidence!

It would be cool to see an athlete like Mike Carter-Williams crossover for a season and give lacrosse a try. Do you think that would ever be possible? How would Coach Desko react?

It is in this website’s opinion that before Mike or C.J. decide to try out for the team, they need a few more lessons from Syracuse lacrosse legend Mike Powell first… maybe he’ll stop by to give them some pointers?

What do you think?
