Is this year's UK team better?

There are 6 comments on the Aiken Standard story from Jan 26, 2011, titled Is this year's UK team better?. In it, Aiken Standard reports that:

John Calipari had better players last season. He has a better team this season. Kentucky is again led by freshmen, but give me Team JKL - Terrence Jones, Brandon Knight and Doron Lamb - long before John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe.

This team has a lot of growing to do and they are not better in fact they are presently over rated. Harrellson does not shoot near enough and Jones trys to do too much. If it was not for Harrellson's rebounding and blocked shots these so called great freshmen would have less points. It's about 5 players at a time not 3!!!!!

It's really hard to even compare last years team to this year. It is a completely different team that is lacking leadership and veteran players. There is just not enough experience. They all need to stick around and Cal needs to make sure they stay and build a championship caliber team. This is about what I expected out of this years team, still hard to watch them lose in the sec hope we bounce back against the vols!!!

Different and short-handed is what I call this team-- but they will be VERY VERY GOOD come March.....

Could the 3 man offense be a coaching carry over from Cal's tenure with the NJ Nets? The scheme looks like a copy of an NBA offense. 3 shooters, a ball defender, and a rebounder.

Not to beat a dead horse, but this happened in Memphis as well under Cal.

If Cal can get Memphis to the championship game, he can UK the trophy, let's say, in a few years.....or he's gone!!
