    Might as well start it now that it's mostly populated. Kentucky's top seven scorers declared today. The Harrison twins, Towns, Cauley-Stein, Lyles, Booker and Johnson.

    Can't wait to see how the Knicks eff this one up. I particularly like how a couple weeks ago, Phil Jackson was asked about Okafor and said that he reminded Jackson of Tyson Chandler and said that's the type of player they want to build around. You know, the same Tyson Chandler who Jackson dumped last summer.

    SEVEN players from one college team entering the draft on the same day, ain't that crazy? That's gotta be a first.

    Underclassmen maybe.

    Their other option was continuing with classes. Anyone want to bet how many of them bother to finish the semester?

    It's probably a real good bet none of them have set foot in a classroom since December.

    Typical, ain't it, Tony?

    That's a bizarre comparison on so many levels. Okafor is a guy most have compared to Al Jefferson, like a really good offensive big who will probably only be average on defense. Excluding his first couple years when he was getting used to the NBA as a high school draftee, Chandler has been a good to great defensive anchor in the middle. The Phil Jackson era has not been especially impressive to me so far, between the team and Fisher's performance this year, and the rumors that they'd be willing to trade the pick for a veteran. (A real #hottake on my part, I know.)

    How many will have any kind of an impact as NBA players?

    Can you post a photo of him before I decide whether he's a shrewd businessman making a decision about his future or, alternatively, a shiftless, malingering ne'er do well who has never attended a class?

    Dekker can always find a job if the NBA doesn't work out.
