The player transferring to Kansas trashed his former coach in a Snapchat video.
K.J. Lawson is getting trashed for what he was seen doing on an uncovered Snapchat video.
The freshman guard transferring out of Memphis to Kansas with his brother, Dedric, was seen on a video yelling “F–k Tubby,” an obvious shot at Tigers head coach Tubby Smith.
Here’s the video, for those who missed it:

There might be some bad blood between the Lawson family and Tubby Smith – the father was an assistant coach with the Tigers but wasn’t retained during the Josh Pastner to Tubby Smith transition – but that doesn’t make what KJ Lawson did OK.
He’s getting trashed.
I think I'm Team Tubby in this whole drama Lawsons vs. Memphis drama. https://t.co/mwMNpMOK4K

One thing K.J. Lawson just did is gift Tubby and Memphis a PR win they were incapable of securing for themselves. https://t.co/2CdzEHRib0

Memphis transfer/future Jayhawk KJ Lawson in a Snapchat video: "This what we do when we leave Tubby. F— Tubby." Such a bad look.

Gotta wonder if Bill Self has seen this. … https://t.co/A50HzZ7fVw

There is a way to leave your hometown school gracefully. Markel Crawford is doing it. KJ Lawson, not so much. He should be embarrassed. https://t.co/Ol4oShH1xM

Memphis’ basketball program is not in a good place right now, but this is a bad look for Lawson.
