— Shots fired! Shots fired! Shots fired! Thomas Robinson is still bitter over all this love and praise for Anthony Davis. When the former Jayhawk was asked today what he thought about Davis’ “Check My Stats” t-shirt, Robinson replied, “If you checked my stats, I’d be the No. 1 pick.”
*** checking Robinson’s stats.. ***
Nope, still not the No. 1 pick.
— Luke Winn over at SI.com got bored waiting for tonight’s premiere of Prometheus so he evaluated the offensive balance of all the previous NCAA title winners. This past season’s Kentucky team ranked at the top, just ahead of the 1997-98 Wildcats.
1. Kentucky 2011-12
Top Six in Rotation (Poss%): Marquis Teague (21.1), Anthony Davis (19.2), Doron Lamb (18.2), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (21.4), Terrence Jones (22.3), Darius Miller (18.7)
So there you have it: Kentucky ’12 is the most balanced title team of the past 16 years — and potentially much longer than that, if the data were available to prove it. To have top-two draft picks using just 19.2 and 21.4 percent of possessions is not in any way normal. This is what’s more typical: The No. 1 pick in 2011, Kyrie Irving, used 27.2 percent of Duke’s possessions, and the No. 2 pick Derrick Williams, used 28.7 percent of Arizona’s. The No. 1 pick in 2010, Kentucky’s John Wall, had a usage rage of 27.3, and the No. 2 pick, Ohio State’s Evan Turner, used 34.3.
The 1999-2000 Duke Blue Devils were third.
— Speaking of Blue Devils, Christian Laettner just joined the Twitterverse. May God have mercy on his soul… @laettnerbball
— According to Kyle Tucker, who is at today’s NBA Combine, Terrence Jones told reporters, “Hopefully soon we’ll have a Kentucky guy on every team.” When a reporter asked Jones about the five UK players in this year’s draft, Jones said, “Six.” Teach ‘em ’bout Kentucky, teach-’em teach-’em ’bout Kentucky.
