Diallo will be Elite. I do not see green losing the job but who knows.Diallo will be among the best 5 players in the country. Knox will not be far behind. Team is so young, the youngest I've ever seen at UK, but at the same time are super talented. Quade Green is the key, unless Shai Gilgeous-Alexander beats him out for the PG spot. I guess it's possible both could start, but the other would likely play the 2, and if anyone is a lock to start, I would think it's Diallo at the 2. Should be interesting season. I expect growing pains early but they should be a final 4 contender come March.
Not a UK guy, but I went to Cal's coaches' clinic last week and I agree with this. They have some question marks at this point, but they have tremendous potential defensively with their size and athleticism. At some point I'd expect Cal to start mixing in some 1-3-1 as a change of pace for maybe 8-10 minutes a game. I'd expect them to look pretty rough at times early in the year, but by the end their defense and length/athleticism should make for a deep tournament run.Should be interesting season. I expect growing pains early but they should be a final 4 contender come March.
