I'm saying that Knight's team was still stacked with at the very least NBA role-player caliber talent at every starting spot (which is a lot more than other college teams can say). That team still does well without him. Not final four of course, but it's not like Knight was a complete monster who put a terrible team on his back.
Besides, what about Kemba? He carried a worse UConn team with only one other draft pick to the national championship WITHOUT ANTHONY DAVIS AND MKG. So Kemba > Knight correct?
Really? How often do late first rounders and early second rounders become solid NBA role players?
The whole point of talking about the tourney was to show that Knight can run an offense, which you said he couldn't. You can't make it to the final four if you don't got a guy to lead the team. Knight led his team to the final four. Kemba led his team to the championships. In terms of talent, both teams had relatively the same amount. And in a tourney where it's not a best of seven series, anything can happen.
Knight can run an offense, which is why he was able to lead his team to the final four. He was the FACE of that team. Good job trying to get off topic bro.
