Love the defense, rebounding, and running. He made a nice 3-pointer against Arkansas, wide open and with a smooth stroke in rhythm, which I hadn't really seen out of him before. Still, I don't want him hunting SHOTS except maybe on the break, but I want him hunting BALLS all the time he is out there. I DO want him to stick free-throws!

Armani was the fastest player on the floor in the Ky game..I would have liked to have seen him pressure the Harrison that hit the 3's full court..this guy would make some kind of wide receiver in football..he would have a better chance playing in the NFL than in the NBA..he is one tough competitor..somebody tip off Butch Jones about how many ex basketball players are in the NFL..S Car has one that I think will be a huge success in the NFL..Ellington...since sports is all about money Armani..hope you read this..

That's not a bad idea, but I hope he still has some productive basketball ahead of him. Not only does he have a chance to play an important role in a title drive, he will be one of the "old hands" on next year's team. He will need to make at least as big a jump on offense next year as Richardson made this year. Richardson not only needs to play big today and the rest of the season, he needs to become at least half of a Jordan McRae next year. Some of those basketball players turned pro football players never played college ball at all. He can give football a try after he graduates.
