You won't find Lakers guard Jodie Meeks traveling around Europe or sitting on a beach somewhere a few weeks into the offseason after a tough 2012-13 campaign.

He's too busy in a University of Kentucky classroom.

 

After making himself eligible for the 2009 NBA Draft after three seasons at the University of Kentucky, Meeks vowed to return one day to finish his degree, and is once again working towards that goal in Lexington, Ky.

 

"When I was making my decision if I was going to leave school after my junior year, I told myself and my family that I was going to return to finish school," Meeks explained to Lakers.com over the phone. "I still have 18 hours left. I took a class in the summers of 2010 and 2011 and am taking one again, trying to chip away so that in a couple more summers I'll be done."

 

After completing the course he began last week in marketing that will last a month, he'll have four more classes to complete until he can graduate. Marketing is Meeks' major, and it's been a good area upon which he can focus.


(further on)

"Right now I'm still taking it easy because of my ankle, which is still bothering me," he said. "The swelling is going down and it's feeling better, but not good enough to start working out."

He should've stayed four years. Would've won a national title in 2010.

PG Wall/Bledsoe
SG Meeks
SF Darius Miller
PF Patrick Patterson
C. Boogie Cousins

All UK was missing that year was a good shooter.

When  UKUGA was talking he was talking about the college game and how they(UK) would have won the National title in 2010 if they all had stayed.

Meeks was a scorer in college.  As was Morrison.  So showing Morrison doesn't help your argument.    As his statement has nothing to do with what they did in the NBA.
