Word on the street is that one of our players has not been available for some games this year because he is ineligible to play, as he has had contact with an agent (but has not hired one yet). Many Bruin fans feared the day this might come, but we all knew it was too good to be true to hold onto Kelvin Kim.
It turns out that there wasn't a roster limit for the Pac-10 and NCAA Tournaments. Kim propagated that story in order to hide the fact that he is going to be the next big thing in the NBA.
In an individual secret workout at the Men's Gym, Kim dunked 76 consecutive times from a standstill, made 172 three-pointers in a row, picked quarters off the top of the backboard (and left 25 pennies, all heads up), and scored a 97 on the Wonderlic test, which is astounding because 1) the Wonderlic test is for football, and 2) it is out of 50 points.
Kim said that he feels comfortable with all aspects of his game except for "consistently dunking from the 3-point line," which he was only able to do 6 times in the workout. Scouts, however, did not seem as high on him. An anonymous NBA scout said, "His talent far surpasses that of anyone in the league. I'm not sure it would be fair to him or to anyone else if he were in the NBA." Because of this, it seems unlikely that Kim will get drafted.
Kim said that if he does not think he has a chance to be drafted, he will have to sit out a few games next year, in accordance with the NCAA's policy.
