    I also live in Huntsville – Kira Lewis’ hometown. I have seen him play a few times as my daughter cheers for a rival school. He is lightning quick but I was surprised to learn that UK was recruiting him. Like most of the listeners/posters on this site, I watch a lot of basketball and never felt he was “UK good”. He will end up at Auburn or Alabama and I predict he will not sniff the NBA. Go Cats!!!

      ” I predict he will not sniff the NBA.” Bold prediction when less than 1% of college players get to the NBA. Just because you have 7 NBA players on a team does not get you a title. There have been numerous great college players that were not NBA material, but you know having those great college players, especially veteran ones, wins more title. Auburn or Bama has/had players that could have played at UK, and some of them are/were better than what we currently have.

      And that is why Alabama and Auburn have won so many SEC and NCAA championships.

      You are right mashburnfan1 – statistically, it is not a stretch for me to claim he will not sniff the nba and I agree that both Bama and Auburn have had good players that could play anywhere. While players do develop (so he has a chance to prove me wrong), he is nowhere near the player nor the young man John Petty was in high school. Kira is fast and shoots a lot. He isn’t a terrific slasher and is not a lock-down defender. He has a nice shot and elevates well. Good luck to the kid … I hope I am wrong but I am still glad he won’t be suiting up in our checkerboard unis. 🙂
