briscoe450 I'm going to preface this by saying I'm in the mindset that if a kid can go get his money and reach his dream of playing in the NBA then go do it. That being said, I'll be more than happy to welcome Isaiah Briscoe back with open arms. Maybe it's the fact we've both lived in New Jersey or remembering how Briscoe ended the season and how he can grow even more at Kentucky. The beginning of the season Briscoe looked out of sorts, especially on the offensive end and in discussions with a high school coach who coached against him a lot of that had to do with him growing into his new body and getting comfortable playing more off the ball. That being said Briscoe showed toward the end of the year that he can be productive on the offensive side of the ball while still being a menace defensively. With limited depth at guard next year, Briscoe gives Calipari the ability to tweak - yeah, tweak - the lineup. He can go small with Briscoe at the three, thanks to his rebounding and strength or he can move Briscoe to the point spot when Fox needs a break. So if it's true Briscoe isn't getting invited to the NBA Combine and likely won't be drafted, come on back to Lexington. He's gifted enough to turn into an NBA draft pick whenever he wants to.
