Randolph Morris: The latest subject of CoachCal.com's "Where are they now?" series

In the latest installment of "Where are they now?" at CoachCal.com, I talk with former UK big man Randolph Morris.

I've interviewed around three dozen former UK football and basketball players over the last four years, and to a man, they all have been very accommodating and willing to share their thoughts, but Morris opened up like few others. Morris talked forthrightly about leaving UK after his junior season, his time with the Knicks and Hawks, and most recently, his tremendously successful China Basketball Association stint, as well as his love for Kentucky basketball.

Here's an excerpt:

"Leaving UK for the NBA was one of the toughest decisions I've ever had to make," Morris said. "There were so many factors that I took into account when coming to that conclusion (to leave for the NBA). First, Kentucky had become my home for the last three years. The relationships that I built in those years I still have to do this day. It was very difficult to leave all my friends behind so suddenly."

Also weighing on Morris' mind were his Wildcat teammates, and the bond they formed through rugged practices and competing together on the hardwood.

"The level of unity that you develop when playing with your teammates will never be experienced again," Morris said about playing for the Cats. "My fondest memories of life happened while playing basketball for Kentucky."
