You had me for a moment there. I always figured Kofi would go and Giorgi would be pushed aside by an unnamed recruit.This is for the best. Giorgi couldn't play on the floor with him so this opens us lots of minutes for Giorgi next year.
in case it isn't obvious
I agree. My first reaction was NOOOOOOO!!!!, but then I realized this is probably the best thing for him. Kofi will get critical, honest feedback, and he can use that to focus his development over the next year. My guess is that not even Kofi expects to go pro this year, unless he's told it's money in the bank, (i.e. a first round lock), and I don't think any of us expect that.Everyone calm down, there are hundreds of kids declaring. He is just getting feedback and it has been confirmed that he is possibly returning. Ayo and Kofi both may be back next year.
If he gets drafted, congrats to him! I would love to see him in orange and blue again next year but will support him in his decision either way. If he and Ayo return for one last dance, I'll be ecstatic.
