Has Gottlieb ever had a kind word for UK?

Terrence Jones is the classic NBA tease right now. T-Jones is putting up huge numbers and will compete when the ball is shot, but he is totally lost on set plays on offense and he can be selfish and lazy on defense. That is why coach John Calipari was on him on the sideline of the Maui Invitational. Keep in mind, T-Jones is getting away with playing the PF slot against inferior athletes, something that will change, as he is in-between positions at the next level. For Kentucky to be a real contender in the SEC, Jones has to understand that his stats are not truly indicative of his positive or negative effect on his team. It is early and he has some "dog" in him that Cal will try to get out of him, but beware of a Donte' Green-type season. Big stats and no defense leads to teams underachieving, despite having a lottery pick at the PF slot.



Aside from Jones' lack of defense and Knight getting trigger happy from the 3-point line, Kentucky must find a third weapon because their freshman look like, well, freshman. Last year was a once in a lifetime deal, and the Wildcats were helped by Patrick Patterson hanging around. This year appears to be a more usual type of freshman class.
