Nobody is. Fair or unfair, Elijah is going to have to live with that being his legacy as a KU player. But I certainly have no intentions of being a dick about it considering how much he cared.
EJ was a good enough player miscast in a role out of necessity. He was perfect as a role player. What really sucks is, I believe a solid (even if unspectacular) point guard would have made KU team a legit final four team. That would have allowed EJ to rotate in to a more comfortable role, which is basically to get an extra perimeter shooter who you can really ride when he gets hot.
