    Me too. And then I wondered why I hadn't heard anything about Calipari.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    The Article:
    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The Lexington CBS affiliate WKYT reports that Billy Donovan, the top choice to replace Tubby Smith as head men’s basketball coach at the University of Kentucky, has been offered a $5 million per year contract from the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies.

    The Grizzlies are currently the worst team in the NBA with a 19-57 record.

    Sources have told WLKY that Donovan is expected to reject the offer, and that UK has offered Donovan $4 million to coach the Wildcats.

    Hey, what are friends for?

    Ricardo Patton is looking for work too. He's WAY underrated as a coach...

    If I were a pro team give me Noah any day of the week. High energy, does the little things like rebounds and passes well, always hustles.

    Kinda like Renaldo Balkman, only with talent.

    That's fine. But he's not a top-5 pick, IMO.

    I hate Isiah, too. But Balkman's played halfway decent (or at least he looks halfway decent with the other assortment of 'talent' around him) At least he plays hard.

    Well, that depends on the team. Noah is never going to be a superstar, on that I agree. But he will be an above average NBAer and is a much safer pick than a guy like either of the Wright boys (Julian or Brandon). Now I really like the Wright boys, especially Brandon as I am a UNC fan, but right now they are solely talent based picks, Noah is a guy who can come in and start almost right away. Plus give you energy. And rebounds. And 10 points a night.

    As for Balkman, he's OK I guess. Still not worth the 21st pick in the draft. Not when he'd have been around at 29.

    I agree. They could've had the PG Williams (that's on the Nets) at 21 and Balkman at 29. The Balkman pick has overshadowed the useless PG from Temple who they took at 29...who's name escapes me.

    I don't know why a subject myself to watching the Knicks. It'd be like watching the Reds if Milton started every game and Danny Graves was the closer.

    Marde Collins. He's just useless.

    Sorry about that I should have been more specific. I can't decide if it's good or bad the more this search drags on. Worse case is this things goes on three weeks Donovan decides to stay or go pro and in the mean time Patterson and Lucas get tired of waiting and commit elsewhere. Then on top of that we get stuck with someone like Few or Crean.

    Noah could've been the top pick last year but decided to stay and win another ring. . . which is fine by me. But he lost a lot on the draft boards by staying because I think he regressed as the year went along.

    If a team valued a high-energy guy so much, Mark Madsen would've been a lottery pick. Ironically, Mark Madsen is still a better dancer than Noah.

    Draft express has Noah going to the Sixers at #6. They have the Suns with the #4 pick... I could see them picking Noah, but I don't about that early.

    Brewer seems to me like a guy that would fit perfect in the Suns system.
