In basketball. In football, it’s entirely different. The NFL isn’t looking to draft high school kids or freshmen because they aren’t ready. And again, look at the percentages.

He'd have had more first-round draft picks. Might not have as many titles. Now ask yourself this: If instead of 26 first-round picks, Saban had coached 226 in that period. Because that's roughly the same percentage of first-rounders to scholarships that Calipari has had.

My only point was this. Calipari's 26 first-round picks during his Kentucky tenure equals 22.2 percent of the scholarship players he could have. Nick Saban's 26 first-round picks represent about 2.5 percent of the scholarship players he could have. Carry on.

I wasn’t really arguing which is tougher. I was just saying that elite players can make a bigger difference in basketball. Their impact is magnified.

Not sure about the difficulty argument, but the value and impact of a basketball first-rounder should be doubled. In football, a single player making a championship impact is more difficult, and because there are no 2-way players, even if he does, it’s only in half the game.

Would love if relegation were a part of MLS. They’ve resisted up to this point.

Former basketball coach David Padgett is still looking out for his guys. Padgett believes Raymond Spalding is "the steal" of the 2018 and also discussed Deng Adel, Quentin Snider & Anas Mahmoud.
