The story of this Kentucky team isn’t just a story of the most talented team in college basketball. It’s a story of a coach who has gotten his absurdly talented players to play as a team, which any college coach can tell you is one of the greatest challenges in the profession. People are complicated; people change. And so the public narrative about a person should be just as nuanced as the person himself, and ought to be able to change, too.
Preach it, Reid. More where there came from, so go check it out. [FoxSports]
