A new city, arena and roster have stepped up new expectations. It’s no longer acceptable for the Nets to merely beat up on the weak. This team is built to contend now.
Terrence Jones looked like a sure-fire top five pick after the first few games of his freshman season at Kentucky. Not any more.
Kentucky has so much talent, it can afford an off-night from one or two players. The one player the Wildcats can’t afford a poor effort from is point guard Marquis Teague.
Let’s face it, if the three pointer by Indiana’s Christian Watford rimmed out at the buzzer on December 10th against Kentucky, we’d be talking about the possibility of the Wildcats going through the season undefeated.
Some people told me I was crazy when I made that statement prior to Kentucky’s win over Louisville on Saturday but when you watch “MKG” play, it’s tough not to see why he’s more valuable than anyone else in college basketball.
