Something about Kentucky guards lately just make me fall in love (no homo of course). The next phenom sacred line of Calipari point guards, Knight will have no trouble carrying on the tradition. Not only will this guy be the best driver, shooter and facilitator on a young but very talented Kentucky basketball team, he possesses the basketball IQ at a young age of a veteran. This guy will rip through the SEC, and land nice and softly into the hearts of Big Blue Nation. With big shoes to fill, let's just hope this kid can dance.
Guard- Kemba Walker
At 6'0", Walker is arguably the fastest guard in all of college basketball. After a breakout Sophomore campaign at Connecticut averaging 14.6 points and 2.1 steals per game, Walker returns as the best point guard in the Big East, and top 3 in the nation. Walker seemed like the only guard all year that actually presented a challenge to future number 1 over all pick John Wall, when Wall and Walker absolutely went at it in a showdown between their two teams. Walker is the type of player that will score tens points on you so fast that you won't even have a chance to catch a breath and will pose a great challenge for anyone going head to head against him. Even with Connecticut on probation, look for Walker to have an All-American type year and be one of the top guards selected in the upcoming NBA Draft.
Forward/Guard- Travis Leslie
There's nothing more exciting in the game of basketball then highlight reel dunks.. and there's no player more exciting then Travis Leslie. This 6-4 junior wing for the Georgia Bulldogs has the speed to go around defenders, the strength to go through them, and the hops to literally go over them. Leslie became a YouTube sensations after his absolutely posterizing slam on Kentucky's 6'11" Demarcus Cousins, (just check out the picture to the right). This kid jumps so high he has to call in to air traffic control every time he takes off. At one point in the season Leslie had 3 different plays in just one Sportscenter Top 10 clip... all from the same game! After averaging 14.8 points per game in a break-out year, Travis Leslie is poised to use his uncanny athletic ability to propel himself to be one of the best players in the country. Look out below, Travis Leslie is flyin' here!
Forward- Kyle Singler
Given the nickname 'Warrior', this kid is nothing short of Mel Gibson in the movie Braveheart when he takes the floor. With a midrange game so nice that it'll make you wanna go outside and practice bankshots during halftime, Singler without a doubt has the best all-around game of anyone in the nation. After leading the Duke Bluedevils to the 2010 National Championship with his fiery leadership and hard-nosed, tough play, Singler kept his name from the NBA Draft for one idea in mind... back to back national championships. Dont let the long hair and fair skin of this nerdy lookin', straight out of the movie Hoosiers appearance fool you, this white boy can flat out play!
Forward/Center- Jon Leuer
A 6'10" big man with a smooth perimeter game, Leuer is a very tough matchup for anyone that is to guard him at the college level. If you put a smaller, more athletic player on him he'll use his dominate post skills and wide-array of hook shots and fade-aways to dominate his defender. Well, since that didn't work I guess you'll try and put a center on him, which will leave Leuer no other choice then to complete embarrass his defender with his ridiculous perimeter skills and sweet outside touch. Leuer's fundamentals are so ridiculously good he will make any NBA scout slobber at the mouth. With a high level of basketball IQ, Leuer only averages a low 0.08 turnovers per possession, the second lowest in college basketball. Watch for Leuer to have a special senior year, I'm talking conference player of the year and All-American level stuff.
