I WROTE THIS ON DRUMMOND AND LAMB AND DRAFTS

25

Sorry to stop by just to pimp my own piece but, back off, OK?! It's my annual draft-day rambling, this time on Drummond and Lamb's struggle to fill Kemba's void, how that affects their pro futures, and whether or not they'll be Calhoun's final first-round picks.

Not sure if this has been brought up here before -- probably not seeing that it's virtually invisible -- but UConn has added a third star to its sorta-see-through back design thingy to signify the third title. (via the incomparable Uni Watch)

HoopSpeakU: What a difference a year makes

Here's my first piece for the gents over a HoopSpeakU, where I'll be stopping by from time to time, mostly to write unnecessarily long things and cover stuff some of the other guys have already tackled. This one is on UConn's struggles the past two games and how things have changed since last season. Enjoy.

Can Jeremy Lamb fill Kemba Walker's shoes? He sure looked up to the task in UConn's season-opener.

Yeah, he calls himself that. No one else calls him that.

Well, this was inevitable: UConn should fire Pasqualoni sooner rather than later

"The past several days have magnified the period of instability that exists today in the world of college athletics. I want to say thank you to all of our loyal supporters and fans of UConn and our athletic programs for their patience during this time. "Please know that we will always do what is in the best interests for the University of Connecticut. "We remain committed to our ideals and principals in intercollegiate athletics and will continue to achieve excellence academically and athletically."

UConn president Susan Herbst, with the least unified-sounding statement ever.

With Andre Drummond in the fold, there's little doubt that Jim Calhoun will be back on the bench next season.

One down, three to go. Not much of a shock here: Box, who wanted to play now, had already fallen behind Nebrich and McEntee, per media reports, and Cochran will be in the fold next season.

NBA Playbook: Kemba Walker scouting report

Some good analysis on Kemba from one of the best in the biz on this type of stuff. Agree with most assessments, although the usual caveats of UConn's uneven offense apply. (For instance, I'd argue that a lack of legitimate options sometimes led to some of his poor decision making on PNRs).
