Don't blow a gasket WMR. No one is questioning the ability of Xavier Henry. I'm just not ready to annoint him a much better player than the best scorer in the SEC before he ever plays a game against a D1 team.
Given that Cousins is coming and Patterson may stay, how big of a loss is Orton? I don't ask that out of disrespect, but rather because I really would like to hear your opinions.
however, with Coach Cal, and with the bigs that we're going to have next season, it's not that big of a deal.
It's going to be a matter of Cal choosing which 5 star recruits he wants at Kentucky moving forward.
That is the best way I look at it. Patterson could still go pro and Cousins could possibly be this years Brandon Jennings if he doesn't qualify.
Orton could be a big loss long term, I was hoping he would play a decent role this year coming off the bench and be a major contributor his sophomore year when Cousins and Patterson would likely be gone. Guess that isn't the case.
