    I told someone I know today whoís a WVU fan that Kentucky could end up pushing Oscar to the bench if they get Jalen Duren. This was before Cockburn entered the portal.

    Kentucky hired two assistants from Illinois (Coach O and Chin Coleman) and they are presumed the heavy favorite if Cockburn pulls out of the draft.

    You guys should be careful of Cockburn, you could go blind. LOL

    Jokes aside, Kofi is a beast. Be a huge get for UK.

    It is interesting.....Kofi is a big advantage on both sides of the court in some matchups, while being a disadvantage in others. His game is basically his size and strength. It really depends on the players around him and the style that they would be optimal playing. Personally, if Oscar regains his motor from his Freshman season, I would much rather have him than Kofi because he is a far more versatile beast. They were in the same recruiting class, and Oscar was the higher ranked recruit.

    If UK is looking for a true "5" then Kofi is the guy. He is a prototypical center that runs the floor well.

    They could play together but you run the risk of doing the same thing WVU ran into with Oscar and Culver in the middle which bogged down the offense.

    If Cockburn (or Duren) comes the possibilities are endless. Itís basically the 2014-2015 team in terms of versatility. They can go big with Oscar and Cockburn or go with one and use Keion Brooks or Daimion Collins to stretch the floor.

    Marcus Carr is also listing Kentucky but at this point itís a hat on the table.

    Came out today that Kentucky was never a serious option. Coleman and Antigua basically pushed him to consider going back to Illinois.

    If so, that's magnanimous of Kentucky's coaches.

    Honestly, I can't imagine it being true.

    You take a guy like Cockburn if he's available, effect on others be darned.

    I suspect he wasn't serious about UK or the Cats already have a silent commitment from Duren.

    Iím thinking the latter. Duren has more of a midrange game and is more versatile. Cockburn and Tshiebwe would have been battling for playing time under the rim.

    If true, I'll hate that Calipari plays two no-range bigs together.

    I much prefer the frenetic, five-out, shoot from everywhere, hard-core man to man, 94 feet of Hell style of play. Give me old school Nolan Richardson, please. Or Dick Motta. Or Cal at Memphis. Or Cal early in his Kentucky tenure.
