How it would warm my heart if Roy had K’s number as both their careers wound down after K sold out for the one-and-done strategy.

Like Adrian said about the second game after the first one, neither team is likely to stop the other for the whole contest. If one team can clamp down and hold the other to 10 points in 15 possessions or some such in the mid-late second half, that could be the game.

Hate to say it, but Kennard is pretty amazing. He could be the next Redick, the guy about whom you wonder at first “How is this dude sticking around in the NBA?” and wonder later “How the blank has this dude actually become an important NBA starter?”

And Meeks only honorable mention all-conference is pretty funny. And not “ha ha” funny. The Sean May comparisons started early and they continue until now, as Meeks is jilted for an honor on account of not playing huge minutes like Sean was cheated of a NPOY he clearly earned.
