Shabazz Muhammad says he has no leader, UK gets the first official visit


shabazz

And so it begins.

Today at the adidas Invitational in Indianapolis, Shabazz Muhammad said that while he doesn’t have a leader yet (hear that, UCLA?), Kentucky will get the first official visit. When asked why he likes Cal, Shabazz reportedly said: “I like that Calipari supports players who want to be one and done.” With Cal and Kenny Payne watching, Muhammad dominated, scoring 39 points in his team’s win over Indiana Elite. Jeff Goodman was also watching, and was clearly impressed:

Here’s why:

Feeling the #TheKentuckyEffect, Shabazz?

  1. me too

  2. Poling Willie

    Dude didn’t go right one time in that video…scares me

  3. hersheyisabear

    2. He actually went right at 0:39.

    This kid could play with his right arm tied around his back. And that is not a compliment. He has no right hand whatsoever. Unless he changes that, teams will figure it out midseason like they did with TJones. IMHO Drummond is the best in this class.

  5. Emmert still sucks

    He didn’t need to go right in any of these. He is left-handed so why go right if no one makes you go right? Way too critical. Again, Trust in Cal!

  6. Dumbledort

    3) He didn’t go right, he shot with he right hand. Big difference

  7. Dumbledort

    5) Maybe he should have gone right when he threw himself into double and triple teams because he didn’t go right

    UK gets his 1st visit? Sounds like he has a leader to me. Or he will after the visit. When recruits visit UCLA, do people there even notice? Do they have anything close to the Craft Center?

  9. tyrus

    Top recruit says he has no favs…what a suprise.

    8- Obviously you’ve never been on UCLA’s campus.

    Are you morons really complaining about this kid going left!?!?! Maybe we should go after Vinny Zollo instead… I’m from KY and love it, but Jesus people, be positive.

    You guys are idiots. Seriously.

    We went from being desperate to criticizing consenus number overall players.

    I guess we dont want him because he is raw with his right still. Unbeleivable

  14. Emmert still sucks

    7) This is a freakin highlight reel. He blew past them all or went over them and slammed the ball. Just because he prefers the left side of the court doesn’t mean he can’t go right. If he never went right, don’t you think that all the scouts would be all over it and mention that in their assessments?

  15. Hestkuk

    Why even waste a post on this guy? Matt says there is no way he comes to UK.

  16. Poling Willie

    You guys get defensive much? Pointing out the obvious here really pisses you off that much?

    ME: “Brandon Knight is good at basketball”

    YOU: “What the hell? Just because he didn’t take us to the NC doesn’t mean he isn’t GREAT at basketball!!” **Spits, drools and breathes heavily**

    the kid’s not even in his senior year in hs … i’m sure these guys work on their game’s weaknesses … come on, guys!

    drummond – needs to work on footwork (yeah, he grew to be 7 ft tall at a young age, i would think so)
    mcgary – needs to work on his right hand (yeah, also a lefty, you guessed it)
    purvis – needs to work on his jumper (awesome athlete who’s always been able to get around guys)
    goodwin – needs to add weight and work on jumper (yeah, again, he’s just a hs junior)

    every guy has a weakness as a hs junior … look at the profiles of the guys that were just drafted, a lot of the same things being said in those profiles, too … hell, there’s a lot of guys in the nba with the rep of always wanting to go one way (dominant hand) or drive cuz they’re jumper isn’t that great yet

    2) It doesn’t scare me, but I’m a grown man.

    im with 21 on this one.

  23. BigAbes4UK

    This guy gets better and better every time I watch this video. CrazY!!

  24. WillCorbett

    If he could go to his right as well as his left then he would be perfect. The kid is still in highschool (Not even a senior). Of course he has things to work on, but Bazz admits his weaknesses and is fixing them one by one. I hope he picks Kentucky, and no one knows where he will end up. But to say, “We dont want him cause he can’t go right” is just ignorant.

    Shabazz will not leave the west coast.
