When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
IF (notice the capital letters) both Lamb and MKG come back, Kentucky's the clear pre-season number one. That team would defend adequately, rebound fairly well (both MKG and Lamb are underrated rebounders at their position), but their real strength would likely be running and shooting/ slashing.
Regardless, it's likely a poor choice monetarily for MKG, though, personally, I wouldn't have traded college for $10 million.

So theoretically, UK could likely have three more scholarships to give, although I wouldn't be shocked if one goes to Anthony Bennett if he commits and the other two are given to the walkons (Sam Malone and Brian Long)
Thanks WV. So you might loose 7 and are giving 4. Hmmmmmmmm, something tells me Cal has this all figured out!
...and this one belongs to the Reds.
WOW if MKG and Lamb return.
Harrow - Lamb - MKG - Wiltjer - Noel
Poythress/Goodwin/Bennett? off the bench. That is a pretty good team.
Has anybody got up dates ?
Dave Baker posting on his twitter just a few minutes ago they are all leaving.
Hypothetical What If Lineup: (no one leaves early, they commit despite playing time complications, and scholarships #s don't matter)
PG John Wall (SR)
SG Doron Lamb (JR)
SF MKG (SO)
PF Anthony Davis (SO)
C DeMarcus Cousins (SR)
G Eric Bledsoe (SR)
G Brandon Knight (JR)
G Marquis Teague (SO)
F Terrence Jones (SO)
C Enes Kanter (SR)
C Daniel Orton (SR)
I think I'd run Wall-Knight-MKG-Davis-Cousins... with Bledsoe/Lamb, Jones, and Kanter as my primary bench players.
