    I may have missed this on the show but why is AD coaching instead of playing?

    ^^^ For insurance liability reasons, I believe.

    If I’m assembling a Calipari-era team and I’m not allowed to have Davis or Nerlens, then there’s no way either Boogie or Willie come off my bench. It seems crazy to have Towns as a bench player, but Willie, Nerlens, and Davis affected the game in a way that no one else, not even Towns, could. Teams adjusted their strategy when those guys would go to the bench and again when they’d check back in.

    My Five:
    1- Bledsoe
    2- Booker
    3- Patterson
    4- Cauley-Stein
    5- Cousins

    Cousins
    Bledsoe
    Jones
    WCS
    An Harrison
    I want the team to have a little chip on their shoulder and these guys all played with an edge at times (some more than others). This will set the tone for the beat-down. I don’t think you can have Demarcus and KAT in at the same time. Jones and WCS are both good defenders that can pick up garbage baskets as well. This team will attack, attack attack!
    GO CATS !!

    I can’t help but wonder if Jeff Goodman thinks Tyler Ulis should play instead of Andrew Harrison.

    so far the lead is (the same as my vote):

    Cousins
    Towns
    Patterson
    Booker
    Bledsoe

    I don’t care who you think is better, gotta let PPat start and hear his name, Rupp will go insane for him

    I believe the older guys should start, maybe with the exception of Booker because we need a real 2 guard in there now that we know for sure who is playing.

    1 – Eric Bledoe
    2 – Devin Booker
    3 – Patrick Patterson
    4 – Terrence Jones
    5 – DeMarcus Cousins

    Willie the first guy off the bench. PPat needs to start, one of many of BBN’s all-time favorites. As is Willie, but he’s just a few months off from starting in Rupp, lol. Would rather see TJ start at the 4. Go Big Blue baby.
