Adam Lucas was in unique position to watch North Carolina's 2004 basketball season and the beginning of Roy Williams' highly anticipated UNC coaching career. He had access other writers did not have for a behind-the-scenes look into the program. He saw, as Williams might say, every frickin' bit of the season starting with the opening of practice in October to March's loss in the NCAA Tournament.
