March Madness 2016: NBA players react to their teams’ exit from NCAA tourney

NBA players go on Twitter to express their dismay over their college teams’ early exit from the 2016 NCAA March Madness festivities.

Once upon a time, NBA players took part in the NCAA March Madness as part of their respective colleges and universities competing for the Division 1 title. Even though they have left their schools years ago, their loyalty continues to remain with their teams.
