I'd wait till he makes the team first. The concerns that caused him to go undrafted still exist and he should dominate the summer league, as a fifth year senior he's much more of a finished product than most of the others.

I'm pulling hard for him since he's such a great representative of our university and I do believe that he'll find a role on an NBA roster but a good run in the summer league doesn't guarantee a spot on Phillys roster.

RE: SK is Back!
The way he's playing in the summer league makes it clear that he's ready to contribute to an NBA roster now. If Philly doesn't want him, someone will.

Last I checked Miami only has 4-5 guys under contract and is still in win-now mode without much cap space. That's a situation that begs for a guy like SK to come in at a low salary and contribute quality minutes off the bench.

That's like saying a young guy that hits the cover off the ball in Spring Training is ready for the majors. A lot of times it just isn't the case.

One man's experience with Sean Kilpatrick

This is an anecdote that Michael Perry, former Enquirer sports editor, UC beat writer, and a good friend, shared with me. I thought I would pass it along to UC fans.

Michael has updated his 2004 book "Tales from the Cincinnati Bearcats Locker Room," to include the best stories in the last 10 years, including the Mick Cronin coaching era and Andy Kennedy's stint as interim head coach.

In Michael's words, the following story tells of his experience in dealing with Sean Kilpatrick:


"When the publisher first sent me books after they were printed, probably around the end of September/early October, I emailed Sean to let him know I wanted to send him a book since he was on the cover. I asked where he was and he said in Cincinnati. He was rehabbing and working out at UC. I called and talked to him. He said he would be in town for about a week. His father also got on the phone and said he wanted to buy five copies to take back to New York. Sean and I agreed to meet so I could give him a book. (I had never met him in person.) I had just ordered 100 books from the publisher that were due to arrive Oct. 6. I emailed Sean on Oct. 4 and asked whether he would consider coming to my home to sign the 100 books and in exchange I would give his father the five books he wanted at no charge. Sean said that was perfect.

"On Monday night, Oct. 6, after coaching my daughter's soccer practice (which was cut short by a rain storm), SK, his father and uncle came to our home. They could not have been nicer. They sat down and Sean chatted with my kids, asking them all about the sports they played. He filled us in on his progress since his surgery and the rehab he was doing at UC. Then he sat down at our living room table and signed the 100 books. Along the way he took photos with me, the book, my kids and was posting to Twitter and Instagram. They were there close to an hour, maybe less. Sean, his father and uncle could not have been more kind, more humble, more gracious. I have not encountered many athletes as appreciative as Sean of the support he received from this city and the university. He has nothing but great things to say about Mick, the fans, UC. I had watched him on TV and read articles that always portrayed him to be an exemplary ambassador for the Bearcats. He certainly lived up to that. And when you meet his father, you can see where Sean gets it from. Just nice people."


If you want a copy of the book you can get one signed by SK at ucbearcatsbook@gmail.com. As of yesterday, Michael had two dozen of those remaining. You can also order an unsigned book at http://www.sportspubbooks.com.

The cost is $19.95 plus tax ($21.30), with an additional $4 if you want it shipped.

Michael will have a book signing with Corie Blount and Ruben Patterson at The Booksellers on Fountain Square this Saturday from 3-4:30 p.m.

RE: SK is Back!
When Mick was on with Lance, he talked about how he didn't like how SK's agents handled his injury and that it essentially prevented him from landing on a roster in time to make a team. It's great that the Warriors saw enough value in him to secure his rights - hopefully he will prove himself in the D League and get a call up this season or next.

Fortson and Logan are definitely ahead of him in line.

Which one of them scored 2,000 points?

You won't get any argument from me that Danny was a better player than SK and I have no idea why his number hasn't been retired but for whatever reason it hasn't been done. For my money Danny is by a good stretch the best player of the Shoemaker 5/3 era.

I'd take SK over Logan but can understand arguments for Lo. SK's character, as evidenced in the article, makes him an easy choice for me as far as a guy who's number I want hanging at 5/3.
