This might be where some readers and fans disagree with me. Or, maybe this isn’t the only position that fans have questioned and that’s okay.
You know how Kentucky would do the five on and five off deal with ten of their players? I figured that the Vols could do something like that too with all the talent. So, that’s why Harris is starting over Slay at the four position.
Now, that isn’t to say that Harris wasn’t impressive in his time with the Vols. In his one season, he was selected for the All-SEC Second Team and All-SEC Freshman Team as he averaged 15.3 points per game.
Ron Slay could arguably be one of the best players in Tennessee history. And, a fan favorite at that. Slay was a difference maker when he was on the court and could get the team fired up with his ability to score quick.
In his senior season, he scored a team-high 21.2 points per game and was voted the SEC Player of the Year. In our all-century team situation, Slay would be the go-to guy off the bench and could really do a lot of damage in that role. Even with all the talent, he could still average of 20 points a game.
