    You have to think ESPN directed him to get over it already. He can hate them all he wants, but he adds fuel to the fire by purposely ignoring them. If he just says the name when discussing the topic, it all goes away.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Yeah and I think he gave it away today by saying it 5 times when before he didnt even list Davis for POY candidate.

    According to Matt Jones, ESPN told him to "cut the crap".

    I felt if anyone might come back due to enjoying college basketball life, it might be MKG. Although I thought when reports came out the other day that MKG said he planned on staying all 4 years was totally ridiculous. A sophmore season ? Maybe. All 4 ? No way.
    I may be in the minority here but till he developes a jumpshot, I just dont see MKG making an immediate impact as a pro. If you charted his "made" FG's this season, I would guess 80 % is within the 10 ft range and that is by putbacks ,fastbreak points etc. It is hard to see him doing that in the NBA.
    I am a big fan of MKG and he may surprise me in the NBA but he just seems like this season, an exceptional college player who still lacks a good consistent jumper which he would need at the next level.

    It's not just you. I love his all-around game and his court smarts, but physically, he's just another guy at that level. He'll need to develop his outside shot. On the other hand, his ability to D up and pass the ball gives him a chance to stick around a long time even if he never becomes a top scorer. Nothing wrong with having Shane Battier's career if that's how it ends up.

    If MKG does come back, it will be for those reasons, similar to Harrison Barnes returning to UNC.

    Still, if your stock is high, take the plunge and go pro. College football is all about development at the college level. The NBA will develop you how THEY want you to play.

    Coach K is an arrogent, smug, A-hole. I hope he is discovered as a phony and a fraud by the national media.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    A man who portrays himself as a mild mannered, God-fearing, buttoned up role model and then turns into a foul-mouthed bully on the sidelines fits my definition of phony. I can't prove that he is an arrogent, smug A-hole, but he seems like one to me.

    I do believe he doesn't cheat (I don't for a minute believe that none of Duke's boosters have).

    I heard Rivers wanted to leave while his draft stock was still moderate Lehigh.
