Rondae Hollis-Jefferson incites Kentucky basketball fans

Ready for the couch fires!

It all started off with an innocent enough comment that isn't exactly ridiculous.

As you might expect, some non-Arizona fan bases are going to be rubbed the wrong way about Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's comment, much like the Syracuse fans did last season whenever someone pointed out that Arizona could be the better team though they weren't ranked No. 1 -- or vice versa.

We'll close this with a nice zinger from respected college basketball writer Michael DeCourcy of Sporting News:

Arizona's starting lineup -- if we project it to be T.J. McConnell, Stanley Johnson, Hollis-Jefferson, Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski -- has age, experience, versatility and the defensive edge on the Wildcats. That's arguable but not foolish to say.

Kentucky certainly wins the depth argument, if you'll take a quick look at a projected depth chart where a guy like Karl Towns is listed as a member of the third unit (this is copied from Wikipedia but the point remains).

Anyway, something tells me this is only the beginning of a recurring argument between two pretty rabid college basketball fan bases.

Also, apparently Stanley Johnson decided that he'd like to pick up LeBron James during The King's skills camp. Apparently LeBron took notice.
