Only a short two weeks have passed since the completion of the basketball season, yet it seems like it has been an eternity of waiting for the players to announce their decisions for the fans. Sadly, we still have a week to go before the deadline to declare for the draft.
What seems like an eternity for fans feels like a mere few hours for the players. The short time they have to make their decisions is not an easy one spent. It’s obvious they are not taking this decision lightly. While a lot of NBA prospects announced right away they would be declaring for the draft, many of UK’s NBA prospects have taken their time to make the decision, some even have gone home to visit their families to talk it over.
All this waiting has turned out to be a bigger tease than us having to wait for Matt Elam to make his college decision. Especially with tweets like this which make it seem like they might be leaning to coming back.
Congrats to my brother @James63Young .. You deserve all that's coming your way

One thing we must remember is that we cannot look at the decisions these players make in a negative light, even though the decisions might affect Kentucky. Coach Cal runs a program that focuses on putting players first and we should do the same.
This is just all part of the process of ‘Succeed and Proceed’, as painful as it might be.
