    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.

    Bro, you're going with Issel and Riley over Calipari and Pitino?? o_O
    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 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.

    The 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. :(:(

    I think you have to put Grant in there. I think my last choice for Duke would come down to Shane or JJ

    I don't agree that Grant, Shane or JJ should be there ahead of Hurley. None of those guys did more at or for Duke while they were there.

    NPOY didn't start until '69 and nobody was winning over Kareem (69) or Maravich (70), the two best college players of all time, imo.

    Tough leaving Hurley off, but you just can't have three players from the same team.

    Garcia was a tough SOB, though. Classy guy, as well.

    Hell yeah. Captain, champion, 3 time NDPOY, MOP, NPOY, graduated with a 3.96 GPA, and the only player in Duke history that K turned the huddle over to.

    I watched the 1992 Indiana vs Florida State preseason NIT game a couple weeks back. Man that was a fun game to watch with Sura and Cassell.
