now all of you should go back to the live blog and see how stupid you look. you are all in your upper 20′s and 30′s. it’s time to grow up. when you thought nerlens would go to g-town you would complain that you didn’t like flat tops. next time try to not be a tool
32) We’re done with Oriakhi now… unless we miss on Bennett. Oriakhi can’t really play the 4 and he wants to get 30 plus minutes a game. He really has trouble defending the 4 and Cal wants a guys that can do that. We got Cauley as a back up center… a great back up center at that.
we really just wanted Oriakhi because if we didn’t get Noel we would be SUPER thin at C. Now you can almost pencil in Oriakhi to Mizzou
51) We want Bennett the most. He can very effectively play the 3 or 4. Amile is a very small 4 but I would still love to have him cause of his Motor. We’re all out after Bennett now and we’ll probably hope to land 1 out of the Pollard/Jefferson mix
I’m confused, does Nerlens block shots with this hands or his hair? If Kidd-G comes back, you’ll see that undefeated season. And wasn’t it nice to have a BBall event where that guy with the short erotic attention span wasn’t mentioned?
Dang it! We have to wait 7 months!!!! I heard a lot of “I” with Shabazz, I heard a lot of we when they interviewed three of the new UK players! Cal does not get enough credit for the “WE”, that is what won this years championship. Also, it is easier to teach a big man offense than it is to teach him defense, Noel already has the defense down! I still think we are going to get one nice suprise from this years team, one of the guys will be back! Approximately 210 days to wait! I was also impressed with Bennett when they interviewed him, he may come if all of this years team goes! WOW!
Nerlens, welcome to without a doubt the most exciting place for college basketball on the planet. You are going to learn more, develop more and increase you opportunities more here then you could have possibly imagined. Be smart listen to what coach Cal tells you, trust your teammates and most of all have fun kid. You just made everyone’s day in the BBN!!!
@114 Show some class man. He made his decision. Time will tell if he was right or not, and likely either way he’ll be fine. Either place was just a layover to his NBA career. Would have loved to have him, but all the same Kentucky isn’t for everybody.
I saw Nerlens in Nawlins (La.)…walking down the street…said hello to him as he past by….at the time was walking beside some Buckeye fans…they said, “who was that”…i said “see, that’s the difference between us (BBN) and everyone else….we know who that is…he’s the number one prospect in the nation” and that is likely why he will be at Kentucky next year”.
147- You know your team is good when the only thing you can brag about is beating UK in the regular season, while watching them win number 8 this 8pril. Stay hyped, we’ll just keep winning championships. Go Big Blue!
Watford got it handed to him when it really mattered. Cheaters? The only reason you guys are where you are is because Adidas is funneling through Indiana elite right to you.
You made a sweet 16. Whoopty doo! and you barely pulled that off. it is so rare for you to beat us that you rush the floor. win something that matters and then come talk trash to a school with 3 straight elite eights, 2 straight final 4s, and reigning national champs.
P.s. We won the game that mattered…. By 12, and hung triple digits on ya
So Noel is going to be a threat of breaking Davis’s shot blocking record. Does it count if his flat-top blocks a shot? That seems very likely. Nerlens Noel averages 3 blocks per game, Nerlens Noel’s flat-top averages 1.6 blocks per game. Winner, winner chicken dinner!
