    If some of these guys stuck around longer, a lot of people’s “Favorite Cats” list would look a lot different. It’s already tough enough for me not to put this kid near the top.

    Really he hopes he end up in DC with Wall. In the words of Eric Bledsoe, they could get s**t right.

    Bob Knight says it’s disgusting to think that NBA GMs would draft a kid after one year. And after watching this video I can certainly see why. MKG is clearly not ready. Listen to Bob. Bob is good.

    MKG was the spark that never dimmed on this team. I have never ever seen a player go 100% from start to finish. I believe he could be one of the best to play the game cause he has no limits to what he can do. Thanks MKG for #8 and now go kill it in the league!

    I’ve said all along, and way too many people underestimate, that I’ve always thought MKG had Jordan potential. I can definately see him and Davis as the Kobe and Tim Duncan of this Generation. It’s gonna be so exciting

    This level of maturity and dedication at the age of 19 is a testament to the character of this young man and the influence of his family and coaches. With as hard as he works, once that jumper gets smoothed out a bit you are looking at a perennial All-Star. Thanks for #8 and for all your hard work, Mike. Go show the world what dedication + talent + the right attitude can achieve.

    Truly exciting time to be a fan of UK and the NBA.
