    Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlen Noels

    If both pick Kentucky I will have to hire someone to make John Calipari "disappear".

    Re: Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlen Noels

    Aren't they both announcing their choices on ESPN at the same time?

    Re: Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlen Noels

    If they both go to Lexington, and Lamb comes back, I think they repeat. Honestly, as a college player anyway, I'd take Doron Lamb over Terrence Jones. I just really like his game.

    Re: Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlen Noels

    I think Lamb, Jones, Davis, MKG, and Teague are all gone.
    They would still be a scary team with Shabazz and Nerlens.

    Re: Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlen Noels

    If both those guys go to UK, they would have the following from the ESPNU Top 100 next season:
    1. Nerlens C 6'10"
    2. Shabazz SF 6'6"
    13. Poythress SF 6'7"
    15. Goodwin SG 6'5"
    40. Will Cauley C 6'10"

    Don't know who runs point for this team though.

    Not to mention the 3 other top 50 guys (2 in top 5 for position) they have already committed.

    Edit: Beat me to it.

    yeah, they have a lot of talent committed already.

    Still worries me that only 1 of those have announced. They only have 2 days left to announce.

    Davis and Kidd-Gilchrist are both gone, they'd be complete fools to stay. You can't get much better than projected at 1-2. Teague and Lamb I think both stay, as they aren't as surefire first rounders (they've been in the second round of a lot of mocks all year). If that happens, you've got an experienced point guard, as well as an excellent perimeter player who's a junior.

    That's the blend of experience/leadership and raw talent that brought them a title this year. I've said for years I don't think a team that relies almost entirely upon freshmen will win a title. You've GOT to have some level of upperclassmen leadership if you want to win a title. Kentucky had it this year with Jones and Lamb. UCONN leaned on Kemba. Duke relied on Singler/Smith/etc. UNC had Hansbrough. Kansas had Chalmers. The list goes on. Keeping Lamb and Teague needs to be Calipari's #1 priority, IMO.

    None have actually announced, but I see no chance that all three of Davis/Kidd-Gilchrist/Jones comes back, and I see very little chance any of the three is back next year. Teague and Lamb I think will be back.

    Yeah it seems to be common knowledge that Davis is gonna be the number 1 pick WHEN he declares. Heck I was surprised when Jones decided to come back, so I'm not gonna assume that MKG is gone. Wasn't Jones predicted to go in top 3-5 in last years draft?

    Word on the street is that Shabazz will team up with Kyle Anderson in Westwood....This was leaked after he knocked KU and his hometown, UNLV off his list...

    Darius Miller was the reason UK won, not Jones or Lamb. He was their glue guy
