Almost immediately after Kentucky defeated Kansas in the national title game, the debate began of how to honor this team and it’s players. Depending on who you talked to, the case could be made that certain. Players deserved a banner in the rafters of Rupp for their role in this miraculous season. I’m not going to ignore the fact that Anthony Davis deserves some kind of individual recognition this year. But then so do Darius Miller, Michael Kidd -Gilchrist and Terrence Jones.
But looking at the banners hanging at Rupp, two things become obvious. First, lots of players who deserve banners do not have one hanging at Rupp. And secondly, there simply is not enough space to honor every individual that deserves recognition. I have come up with an idea that may solve those problems and keep the basketball purists and the fans alike happy.
