Rex Chapman came on the show this morning to talk about the Cats and his new website, iRex3.com. If you follow Rex on Twitter, you know he loves sharing his opinions on both the Cats and college basketball, and his new site is just a bigger forum for those thoughts. He’s already got some great stuff up, including this spot-on comment about James Young:
But in this “one and done” age in which we live — THERE IS NOBODY ON THIS KENTUCKY ROSTER who would benefit any more than James Young to returning for his sophomore year. Pay no attention to mock-drafts. James Young, right now, is not a better prospect than Archie Goodwin was a year ago — and Archie went 29th. The people at these “mock-draft”-sites haven’t a clue. The NBA ppl I’ve spoken with, to a person, are in agreement that the league could crush a youngster w the weaknesses James currently has handling and passing from the guard spot. He CAN IMPROVE and I believe he WILL improve — IF he’s not in too big of a hurry to leave.
Rex has similar breakdowns for Alex Poythress, Willie Cauley-Stein, and Dakari Johnson, so go check it out at iRex3.com.
