After the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, if you didn't already know how bad this draft class is, you should by now!
A weak draft class had a weak opening weekend of the tournament. Could this be the worst class since 2000?
It's another reason McLemore has to go. There are at least a half dozen guys who are HS seniors right now that would be drafted ahead of him. In a year, he's a year older, has a year where the media starts picking him apart, and has a bunch of legitimate competition for top draft slots. I don't think anyone on this site is arguing he should stay, but I've seen it on TFS and elsewhere.

Exactly. He would likely be a better player if he stayed, but he would struggle to be a top ten pick a year after he will go top three.
The argument I guess is if he (McLemore) will be able to work on his weaknesses, like agresiveness and ball handling better with an NBA team or with the Jayhawks.
It stands to reason that if he emerses himself in the game, like he would do in the NBA he can develop faster than the limited time he can spend with coaches and trainers in college.
It's obvious Ben has to take the step now... but emotionally I think another year of maturity would help a lot, but financially he has to go now... like Aaron says he has to take the money while it's there, next year the 1,2 and 3 spot in the draft will all most likely be guys from the Kentucky Wildcats and maybe even the top 5.

I think there is very little question that Ben would be a better basketball player if he came back, but there is almost also no question that Ben would be a lower draft pick in 2014 than he will be in 2013. It's probably not the right decision for the long term, but it's unquestionably the best decision for Ben and his family for the next three years.
