    Happy for the young man I do hope he chooses Minnesota and plays for Richard Pitino. Jamal Mashburn is and always will be my favorite Kentucky player and I still am confused as to why he didn’t attend the Utah game at Rupp last year when the 1993 final four team was honored. He sent no video either. GO CATS!!

      He loves RP.

      Mashburn, And Rick Pitino are business partners along with Rick Avar – in the company MAP. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Mash Jr plays for little Rick

    It’s going to take a couple years, but this kid will be a hell of a player by the time he’s a junior and senior. We only have ten players every year anyway and I just don’t understand why Cal doesn’t try to get kids like this that can develop, become really good and contribute as they get older. It’s just hard to understand not filling the scholarships every year and give the top 50-100 kind of kids an opportunity to play for Kentucky. If nothing else but to have some experience and older guys who will have some excitement on the bench.

    I’ve always been in the group who would love to get at least one Ky kid every year. At most you’d have four kids on the team who bleeds blue and white. We always have a few kids who turn out to be pretty dang good players and blah, blah, blah! Lol. I know I’m rambling, but I think it should be a state law!! I’m only joking about the law but I want more Kentucky on this team. I do love Dontaie and when he gets healthy, I really believe he’s going to help us this year. He’s a bucket, as the kids say nowadays!

      Oh. Yeah, To the azzholes, of course I know this kid isn’t from Kentucky. So no need to try and act like a big shot after you’ve waited all day to correct someone. My post stands

      I’ve been saying this for years. It is absolutely indefensible to leave 2-3 unfilled scholarships EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

    3. JASUN74

      Agree 100% Delray cat! Like I said just one Ky kid, ( mind you a really good basketball player), a year and we’d have a max of four players filled. He leaves that many sometimes. Lol. It could make a huge difference in practice and the overall positivity of the team. Just my opinion of course.

    Mash is my fave all-time, still bothers me he isn’t around the program much. Dude was an absolute monster and one of the greatest ever here, UK needs to bring him around the program

    1. mashburnfan1

      and he came here when all other top guys were running because of our probation. He helped Rick get UK back to elite quickly and we should all be forever thankful this guy played for UK. Nothing but class on and off the court. Shame he had so many injuries in the NBA as he would have been an all time great.

      The real shame is you using his name while criticizing and spewing lies about Cal and the program. You on the other hand show no class at any time the basketball threads.

    He is a 6’2″ shooting guard with limited point guard abilities.
