    Look. Everyone got excited but you got to understand some things.
    1) Duke hit EVERYTHING they threw up this game. They never shot like that again ALL season. Also, UK shot very bad this game.
    2) Calipari had broke down his team to play the right way so everything was new and UK played mechanical. Duke didn’t run 1 play. They just played playground ball. Duke just spread the floor and took their man. Duke didn’t improve through the season. They actually got worse. Duke relied on super athletic skills. Coach K didn’t fix Duke’s issues. Calipari did. Example: He fixed Hero’s slow shot. UK was broke down and taught to play the right way. They got much better as the season went on. Duke didn’t. When a player went down for UK they didn’t miss a beat. Duke player went down, they lost. In the Bahamas Cal had not coached his team so they looked great, they played loose playground ball. But it took them a while to learn to play the right way. UK players are more prepared for NBA than Duke players.

    Zion if you are reading this, don’t follow Lebron you already have the physicality that’s only what Lebron have, go ask Kobe for training, perfection to foot steps and shooting, work ethic, and killer instinct is what you can improve.

    NCAA biggest hypocrite organization there is. 1 and done rule is horrible. Even more deplorable is the rule that a kid cant return to his college team if he declares for the draft and then changes his mind. Who the HELL came up with that?! How on earth does that benefit the student athlete?! Oh and how bout players who have to redshirt a year if they want to transfer schools for whatever reason?! Whats the sense in that? Who makes up these rules? A small group of rich folks whose only interest is for the schools and the NCAA to maintain control over the student athletes, while keeping that money coming in. Honestly its sickening when you think about it.
