Check out this website that UK has started in hopes of marketing Jodie Meeks. Likely he won't win (Blake Griffin has that locked up even if he's currently not available to play). However, this kind of marketing could get Jodie on the First Team All-American list, which is equally impressive IMO.

Go Jodie! And, thanks for the memories, that I hope are still forthcoming. I'm not sure we'll see another guy who scores like this for decades. It's definitely something to tell your kids about.

Check out the website... pretty snazzy.

Meeks is a baller. I love watching him when its not v UF. Honestly, I think he is the best back court player from UK in a while. That says a lot given guys like Crawford and Rondo. But Meeks has another level.

I don't disagree at all. I'd take it one step further and say he's been our best player since maybe Tayshaun Prince, regardless of position.

Blake Griffin has it locked up IMO. He is the most unselfish, well-rounded player in the country.

Is Meeks leaving or returning next year? How is his NBA stock looking?

I think Jodie is coming back, but his stock is as high as it will probably get right now. He translates to being a "Ben Gordon" kind of player in the NBA IMO.
