One informed opinion on the subject comes from Matt Jones, a lawyer who does a sports talk show for Kentucky sports radio. He compares the money Kanter received from Fenerbache to what an international student who plays for a prep school power like Oak Hill Academy receives - a scholarship worth $31,000 and personal expenses up to $10,000. The NCAA sees such expenses paid by European basketball teams to be similar, as players play and learn in basketball academies that are the equivalent to prep schools in this country. ---Thanks to reader djamyx for calling me out on not knowing about this new relaxed position by the NCAA. Someday, if I ever do this for a living, I won't blindly make assumptions in regards to a new rule that I ignorantly glossed over.

Kentucky coach John Calipari not linked to two past vacated Final Fours, but is still scrutinized
