    Cant argue that. And I would say that for what "little" I know about UK b-ball he would be my choice.

    True. The 3 Hall of Famers from UK are Hagan, Issel and Ramsey.

    It's a lot like Alabama football. They've had just the 1 Heisman winner, Ingram. We've had the 1 POY, Davis.* The two programs have a TON of similarities if you look deep. Neither of us has really been the "sexy" program until the past few years, but we've both won. We both had all-time greats: Bear and Rupp. We both have monster fanbases that take a lot of flack. Both of our current coaches are controversial, and we've both had a few "Troubles" in the past.

    *Wall won 1 of the major awards, but that's like claiming Draymond Green as this year's POY.

    Issell is the best I saw. He could score with anyone and he was a tough dude too. Mashburn is a close 2nd. If he could have been more healthy he may have surpassed Issell. Louie Dampier did mainly play in the ABA but he could have been just as good in the NBA. He could flat out shoot the ball. He was a great 3 point shooter in the ABA and the 3 point line was further back than in the NBA. I saw Dampier play in an exhibition game against the UK seniors from the 1986 team. He was about 50 then and he could still stoke it. He and Kenny Walker had to have both scored 40+ in that game. They were equally phenominal offensively that day.

    If that was directed at my comment that I was surprised by only 3 UK players being in the NBA HOF then I dont follow your thought pattern. The college game does not translate to the next level especially in basketball. But comparing Alabama in football to UK in basketball is like comparing apples to beach balls. There are 22 regular starters on a football team and that doesnt include special team players such as punters and place kickers. To equate Heismans to POY awards makes no sense to me. The Heisman is the Heisman the POY is speculative at best because so many organizations or media outlets have their own voting. And BTW, Alabama's success in the NFL not only dips into the Hall-of-Fame, but also shows up on Super Bowl rings on multiple starting QB's that were Bama alums.

    I hope LeBron comes back to Rupp Arena next season to do the Y again and brings his Championship trophy and MVP trophy with him.

    BTW: LeBron winning a Chip will only help UK recruiting.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    So King James saying he likes Cal and visa versa, coupled with the fact that he now has a ring and a line of basketball sneakers equates to helping Kentucky with recruiting?

    Forgive me, but the last time I checked UK was doing just fine. But hopefully your formula works....because if it does maybe D-Wade getting his second chip will help the recruiting at IU????????

    No, but Wade actually played for Crean. I am sure we will be seeing more of him in Bloomington in the future. It would be a helluva lot better than seeing Isiah Thomas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
