Dean Smith was always close with his North Carolina players. It showed even more on Thursday when the former Tar Heels coach, who died in February, willed each of his players a $200 check “to enjoy a dinner out.”

Smith’s will had 180 checks go out totaling $36,000.
Former UNC center Serge Zwikker told me he teared up when he opened the $200 check from Dean Smith, says he won't ever cash it

No word yet if the NCAA has found a violation with any of this.
