Exodus

I was travelling last night, so forgive the late update. You may have seen the news in our comments sections, but here it is to discuss.

Kentucky center Randolph Morris, who played his best basketball as a Wildcat in the three weeks leading up to Tubby Smith's departure, is now a New York Knick.

Morris inked a two-year deal worth a reported $1.6 million on Friday, leaving behind the NCAA and his odd, troubled Kentucky career.

I have long thought Morris talented enough, especially offensively, for the NBA. His will to win and compete, however, are certainly questionable, his last few efforts notwithstanding.

His absence leaves a gaping hole in the Kentucky frontcourt, with the roster currently featuring a grand total of five true forwards/centers: redshirt sophomore Jared Carter, true sophomore-to-be Perry Stevenson, second-semester sophomore Ramon Harris, incoming frosh A.J. Stewart and walk-on Mark Coury.

Not exactly scaring the life out of the SEC.

Good luck to Morris. I happen to be one of those blue-tinted "Once a Cat, always a Cat" fans, with the only exceptions being LeRon Ellis (my least favorite Cat of all time) and Chris Mills.

As for next year, at this point who can know what to expect. Suffice it to say, Tubby's golden parachute is looking even shinier now that we're looking at 30+ minutes of Perry Stevenson a game.
