Come back next year and lead the Zags to the Final 4. IMO some things are more precious than money. And what is one year out of the many years you will have left to play in the NBA? Good luck in your decision, and talk to people (basketball players) who have been where you're at now.

"WOOT! 3rd Gonzaga All American in 11 years. Fantastic!!!"

Actually, if you're talking about NABC All-American teams, he is the fifth overall, and the fourth in 11 years:

"Adam Morrison received first-team All-America recognition in 2006.
... [T]hree other Bulldogs have received NABC All-America team recognition. Frank Burgess was a third-team pick in 1961 after leading the county in scoring with his 32.4 ppg. Dan Dickau in 2002 and Blake Stepp in 2004 were second-team honorees."

Congratualtions, Kelly! Since the first time he stepped on the court in a Gonzaga uniform, Kelly has been one of my favorite players. His transition from perimeter player to the dominant inside player he has become is one of the remarkable stories in Gonzaga lore! Making any kind of change in one's life is never easy....and his willingness to work and persevere makes this kind of recognition even sweeter. All Gonzaga alumni and fans are thrilled for you and wish you only the best in your future endeavors!

God bless!

Kelly is really deserving of the recognition he is getting. There is no better center in the country. I was really hoping that we'd get a chance to see him play against Zeller, Withey or Plumlee. I think that would have been fun.

That would be one hell of a team... I wonder what the over under would be for points in one game? 105? I would say over if that were the mark.

Congrats to Kelly, he is a smart kid and will make the best decision for himself... good luck to him.
