    I'd be surprised if KJ isn't starting. Even if undersized, he was a rebounding beast at the 4 last year.

    Of course the nice thing with Blackshear coming is now we have a spot locked down, so we should have options to go big when necessary... maybe depending on matchup and who is performing well (and healthy).

    This news today (finally) was much needed. I had to say goodbye to my 12 yr old lab today (buzzkill, I know) so this has given me and my son a reason to smile tonight. Bittersweet, but KB was worth the wait and I'm already counting down the days until b-ball season.

    He won't be. He did very well last year as an under-sized 4. I won't even consider it a small lineup as we will finally have a legit 5. Hayes was great last year but was always undersized for the position. We won't be nearly as dependent on KJ to rebound as last year, and I like how he defended most 4's he went up against. I expect him to play some 3 as well. It will be interesting to see the pecking order at the 4/5 off the bench. I expect it to be very fluid until someone emerges.

    Sorry about your lab. Tough losing a pet. Glad this can shine a little brightness on such a sad day for you and your son.

    And he made 75% of his free throws with excellent shooting form last year. Also top 40 nationally in offensive rebounding. (KenPom)

    Those guys are delusional. Given the injuries we've had each of Whites years here so far it's amazing we've done as Well as we have. They act like they have the better program based on one year. Damn they are arrogant.

    Keyontae Johnson could end up starting when the season first begins. He gives Florida that quicker 4-guard line-up. Hopefully, Florida can also successfully go with the traditional line-up, too, with so many front-court players available.

    Perhaps with his experience, Blackshear will have the versatility to play both center and PF. Remember, Blackshear wants to also display his outside shooting from the arc. He could do that as a "stretch4". Then, someone else could slide over to the center position like Gak/Stokes/Payne/etc. Florida would have the twin-tower look against other teams with deep front-courts - like a Kentucky.

    The 2006/07 UF teams had versatile, front-court players (Richard, Horford, Noah, Moss/Speights) who could play both positions should someone get in foul trouble. With this Florida team, we won't know until this summer/fall is over which players will stand out in the practices going forward.

    I'm enjoying the journey through that thread now.. the first few pages are all anti-white and pro-barnes... after that, they all turn on barnes.

    All that experience and star-power, including 2x SEC POY, and they won exactly one more NCAA tourney game than we did over the last 2 years. Hell, they couldn't even win the damn SEC tourney this year as AU blew their doors off. We could've beaten AU if the refs didn't swallow their whistles.
