Regardless, this is a pointless discussion. Knight is likely a very smart kid but he probably won't finish his degree before he leaves UK anyway.
That's what I was implying.
You can get a good education at any school in the SEC, Big Ten, Big East, wherever... if you're willing to pursue challenging/interesting classes and put in the work. I'm sure Knight knows that. He cares about school and getting his education, but the ultimate goal is the NBA.
