Daniel Orton is doing nothing to endear himself to the Big Blue nation.    His latest comment that will upset the nation was made to nbadraft.net in an interview.  Here is what Daniel said…

“NBADraft.net: With the lack of opportunity this past year at Kentucky, if you had to do it over again, would you have gone to a different school?

Daniel Orton: If I had done it differently I would have gone to Kansas. But with the way things have worked out, in the end, no I wouldn’t have done anything differently. “

I’m going to be interested in seeing how the Orton troop spins this into him being “misquoted”…Oh well…

Update: I just read another site, and they are of course saying Daniel did not mean what it sounds like he meant.  I might have believed this if there had not been so many instances were Orton seemed unhappy at UK.  He did not have a great relationship with cal while at UK according to everyone I know close to the situation and the fact he dropped out to head out to Cali shows he could not get out of Lexington fast enough.  It has been said that he did it to prepare for the draft, and I am sure that is the reason, but none of the other UK guys did it, so it was not a necessary move in order to be drafted.  If John Wall or Demarcus Cousins were interviewed today by the same reporter with the same question, I bet you a dollar to a bucket of dirt neither of them mentions another school when asked that question, I’m just sayin’…
