Julius Randle was born just two years before Kobe Bryant was drafted into the NBA. Ten years later the Lakers were in full dynasty mode with Shaq, Kobe, and Phil competing year in and year out. As such, Lil’ Julius Randle was a fan of the showtime Lakers and Instagrammed a picture of himself wearing a Kobe jersey on Friday. Pretty cool that he will be able to play with the guy whose jersey he wore growing up. On to the links:
ICYMI: The Cats picked up two major football commits yesterday with the additions of Darius Fullwood and Jabari Greenwood.
Former Cat Pat Riley now has his hands full in Miami. Wade, Bosh, and Haslem all opted out of their contracts in a move to restructure and resign Lebron. If things go south in South Beach next year’s Heat roster could look as bad as IU’s.
Brad Keselowski may have won at Kentucky Speedway last night but it was the track who got the last laugh when Brad sliced his hand open celebrating.
Kentucky now leads all college programs with the most NBA picks since 2000. With a record number of guys potentially going pro next season the Cats are showing no signs of slowing down.
