  He isn't getting real feedback because NBA executives aren't holding workouts or giving feedback. That's not likely to change any time soon.

Really hoping this doesn't lead to most of UK's players coming back and forming another super-team like the lockout caused in 2011.

A lot of kids returning would make for a great college basketball season.

I know it would, I just don't want another season of them lording over everyone while ESPN ponders if they're the greatest team of all time.

That 2011-12 UK team was pretty darned good. And we get to say we beat them once and have them a heck of a game in the Sweet 16. But I don’t think they’ll be returning any Terrance Jones type talent.

Didn’t work out the greatest for him. All of his numbers went way down the second year. Guessing Cal is warning them on his mistake.

He also won a championship, SEC title(16-0) and went 38-2. I’d say that’s a good reason to return.

He played 8 seasons in the NBA and is still playing professionally. Not sure what's so bad about that.

Terrance Jones has eight years in the NBA if you count each of the three years that he played five games or less.

No NBA team wants him at age 27 because he has the mentality of a crazy five year old, so he plays in the Philippines, where this happened:

Absolutely if you don’t care about the money he left on the table. I don’t think Cal is teaching that. I absolutely agree with you with how my mentality is. But not many kids do that.

Ok, so he's immature. Going pro a year earlier changes that...how?

Sending an immature 19 year old with no college degree into the world with unlimited spending money is generally a bad idea IMO. Tends to reinforce and cement the immaturity.
