    I'm so proud of Julius! He is going to make a great pro and his dreams have come true. I hope his mom won't have to leave at halftime of anymore of his games to go to work.

    Not at all...in fact I predict the rest stay...but worried that Dakari may go and he isn't ready.

    You can't turn down being in the top 10 in the draft.

    Don't believe the twins are ready for the NBA.
    Your thoughts Jeff?

    No they aren't ready for the NBA...the light just started flicking towards the end...Aaron learned to use his teammates and Andrew grew up in a big way. They will stay at Kentucky.

    I always wonder what people mean when they talk about a college player being "ready for the NBA." Ready to contribute? Ready to get drafted and continue developing and end up with a successful career? Seems to me there aren't many players drafted each year that are ready for the first. The second is pretty hard to judge IMO.

    Both twins (I hate lumping them together, but its safe to do so in this instance) played MUCH better towards the end of the season. Funny thing though, neither's draft stock skyrocketed. Dont' get me wrong, I want them back and think that they both have plenty of room for improvement. I just don't see their main drawbacks improving.

    Good question....I'm not really sure what is the whole equation for being ready for the NBA...It is rare that I watch an NBA game.

    Well Jeff....then you missed John Wall's 16 points and 7 assists in another upset of the Bulls.
    You also missed our high-scoring Bradley Beal with 26 points and 7 rebounds for the Wizards.
    Noah had another outstanding game but these young guns for Washington are something else.
    Chicago looked like they ran out of 'bullets'....which is ironic for a town just nicknamed Chiraq.

    So, once they leave the Cats, you're no longer interested?

    I watch the NBA only to see former Gators play. I watched the Bulls and Wizards play last night to see Noah and Beal.

    I think Randle is going to develop into a great player in the NBA. He'll be like Zach Randolph without the attitude issues.
