Well, we got some unfortunate news this morning, as Kenny Payne, long-time assistant for the Kentucky Wildcats, will be leaving for the assistant coach job for the New York Knicks.

It’s a massive blow for Kentucky, as KP had been one of the driving forces behind Kentucky’s massive success in the past ten seasons. KP was beloved by every player that had walked through the program since 2009, and was a force on the recruiting trail, being one of the best in the game.

Bruiser Flint, a long-time friend of John Calipari, will be the man charged with the task of replacing Payne. It’s no easy task, but I am eager to see the job that Flint will do in Lexington.

Let’s see what social media had to say about the duel announcements:
