Former Mizzou Guard Kim English Praises Bill Self, Kansas On Twitter

Former Missouri guard Kim English, who was drafted by the Detroit Pistons in 2012 but has since taken his skills over to Europe, is putting aside the rivalry between his Tigers and the Kansas to throw a little bit of praise at the Jayhawks. English took to Twitter Sunday to make a statement about how impressive it is that head coach Bill Self and KU have won the last 10 Big 12 men's basketball titles.

Sadly, the two schools no longer play after Mizzou's move to the SEC, but back just a few years ago when English was still suiting up, they were the fiercest of rivals. It's pretty cool to see English put things in perspective, even if it means praising a hated foe.

As for Self's streak, it certainly is impressive. You can argue that KU consistently gets the top recruits in the country, but to win the league every year in a decade is still absurd.
