Just realized: 2017 Tarheels = 2015 Royals
After coming ridiculously close in 2016, they get back and take care of business in 2017. Good for them. (And bad for KU. On all accounts. Why does Roy start winning titles AFTER he leaves KU?! And why in the eff can’t KU get there?!)
Coaches can be like wine - they get better with age. Wooden and Roy are examples of that. Also, you have to have length, athleticism and balance to beat the opponent multiple ways. Roy had that the last couple years. We might have it next season.

I wish this were true… because Kevin Ollie is quite the exception. Billy Donovan too.
All I know is that my main thought this evening is what @chriz said: Why does Roy start winning titles after he leaves…?
Zero in 15 years at KU; three in 14 years at UNC. Painful disparity.
