I understand. I guess where I’m coming from, is he did more for UK than 99 percent of the guys that played more than one year. Won every award in the book. And is probably, as an individual, the most talented played Kentucky has ever had.Couldn't bring myself to put a OAD on the list.
Bro, you're going with Issel and Riley over Calipari and Pitino??Kentucky
I tried to limit it to just one coach (Rupp) mainly because I would have had a hard time putting one of Pitino or Cal above the other one. Issel is the all time leading scorer and multiple time All American. He's hard to leave out. Riley is one of many I could have put in there for the last spot.Bro, you're going with Issel and Riley over Calipari and Pitino??
Issel wasn't even a NPOY nor did his UK teams ever win a title.
Come to think of it, I've never realized what a coach driven program UK is. Davis is your program's only true great player which makes your 8 national titles and other program accolades all the more impressive in my opinion.
I think you have to put Grant in there. I think my last choice for Duke would come down to Shane or JJThe only 2 consensus Duke candidates would be Coach K and Christian Laettner.
You could fill out the remaining 2 spots with any combination of Bobby Hurley, Grant Hill, Elton Brand, Shane Battier, Jason Williams, JJ Redick and Zion Williamson.
We really should have won 10 national titles in the last 30 years.
No Izzo?Magic Johnson
Our top 4 players of all time are all point guards. While Denzel Valentine did average 19/7/7 and had a better one single season than Cassius did, Cassius brought the team to a final four and 3 straight big ten championships.
