Good piece by DeCourcey.
I'm torn on the Kanter issue. I want to see him in a UK uniform, because we need him and he's the best freshman big man in the country, IMO. By season's end he may be the best big man in all of college basketball. Surrounded by the kind of talent Calipari brings in, Kanter could be a monster.
But I also would be concerned about there being a "rest of the story" type scenario, in which we learn more later, and then Kanter is declared ineligible after he's already played a season for us. He's more than worth taking a risk on, but I don't want any scenario in which UK is made to forfeit victories.
The Kanter family has plenty of money, so he wouldn't have needed his Turkish team to pay him, other than normal expenses. And there's plenty of reason for the Turkish team to be vindictive and lie about the situation - because they no longer have the kid playing for them. So who knows what the actual truth is here. I'll just be glad when a ruling is made and we can move forward, with or without him.
