Kansas basketball: Ben McLemore Update

Former Kansas basketball star Ben McLemore is playing very well as a rookie in his first preseason campaign. As a Sacramento King, he is showing he was very deserving of the seventh overall pick in the 2013 draft.

The “other” Kansas Jayhawk freshmen

Much has been made about the arrival of Andrew Wiggins on the campus of Lawrence, as it should be. The Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year is extremely gifted.

However, it takes more...

Kings draft Ben McLemore at 7th overall; Ray McCallum at 36th overall

Well. Alrighty then. Yeah. I just wrote that. Get over it. Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum as the first two picks of the Vivek & Co. era. That's nothing if not anything but an asset collection as far as I can see.  Are either of those players automatically better than Tyreke Evans? No. What about Isaiah Thomas? I'd say McLemore of course is, but by how much...

Ben McLemore: Number One Overall?

Should the Kansas shooting guard be rising up NBA Draft boards? (Photo credit) An NBA team earns the first overall pick by being a certain mix of bad and lucky.

NBA teams should avoid drafting Ben McLemore as though the Kansas shooting guard is akin to anthrax

ESPN reports former Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore looked lethargic and “struggled to keep up” in recent workouts with the Phoenix Suns and Orlando Magic.
