For two brothers who have been called average players at best (even by their own fanbase) during their time at Kentucky, there might not be more polarizing players than the Harrison twins. This time it’s Chris Mannix talking about Andrew and Aaron, taking a look at the time leading up to the draft and what sort of question marks loom over their heads.
The most interesting thing from the article talks about how scrutinized the Harrison brothers were, especially their body language. Mannix goes on to say scouts hear the same thing when asking about them – that they are well liked and respected by coaches.
“If they went to Vanderbilt, no one would be talking about it,” says a GM. “They do play with a swagger. But it’s fascinating. They really do evoke hatred among some people.”
That might be the best description of coming to Kentucky. Heck, it should be hanging in Coach Cal’s office. When you come to Kentucky you’re going to be talked about, whether it’s warranted or not.
It’s a unique read on Kentucky’s starting backcourt the last two years, with some interesting quotes from scouts. Let’s all hope they do their best to quiet critics the next couple of years in the NBA.
