Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

Nigel Hayes is spending the week at the NBA Combine in Chicago. He is set to graduate from the University of Wisconsin this weekend. The former Badgers standout took time to pen a letter to his classmates on 'The Players' Tribune' website. Here is an excerpt:

"My challenge to the class of 2017 is this:

Never accept it when someone says, “Just shut up and play.” Or whatever the equivalent is in your field.

Don’t accept it when they say, “Stay in your lane.”

Let’s use all possible lanes. Let’s create new lanes. Each of us is more than just the job we do for a few hours a day.

Whether we play basketball or not. "
