Reason #2: Anywhere fromto $3.4 to $4.6 million in his first year. Reason #3: Harrison Barnes. Why he should return to Kentucky: He loves everything about playing for Coach Cal and UK. If he returns for his sophomore season, he could work on that outside shot and possibly be the No. 1 overall pick 2013. Chance of a return: Slim to none. MKG loved every minute of his time at Kentucky and he doesn't want to leave, but in the end, there is just too much guaranteed money out there. KSR prediction:  We love you. Go make us proud.
