07:22 AM ET 06.26 | Ex-Rutgers coach Mike Rice has resurfaced. [Rice] participated as a speaker at the Nike Skills Academy camp in Union, N.J., on Tuesday. In a text to Yahoo! Sports, Rice referred to himself as a "viewing guest of John Lucas," at the camp. Rice spoke to a group of college players at the camp at Kean University and spent the rest of the day watching the workouts on the sideline. Three months after a firing centered on physically abusive practices as Rutgers' coach, Nike's camp for top college and high school players marks Rice's first steps back into national mainstream basketball competition. For five weeks, Rice had been undergoing anger management counseling at the John Lucas Wellness and Aftercare Program in Houston.

He's telling John Lucas "You know what? Even after 5 weeks of therapy, I still wanna shove a basketball down a kid's throat whenever he misses a pick!"

He's taunting a student athlete, yelling that he'll see him in the program he's developing for CCA and GEO.
