Marquis Teague, Doron Lamb, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, and Anthony Davis will hold a joint press conference tomorrow to announce their basketball futures. A time has not been set but we’ll let you know as soon as it’s released.

NBA GMs are licking their chops.

Go Cats.

    Wait so they’re announcing their “futures”? As in there is a chance that one of them might not go? or more? that’s worded as if to say they’re each doing something different. otherwise it’d say they’re announcing for the NBA, not just “futures”

    Rumor has it that they’re all coming back to form the Greatest College Basketball team ever!

    3 – Yeah that’s what I’m thinking. It wouldn’t make sense for one of them (Lamb) to have a different decision than the others. But hey, anything can happen!

    Will Wiltjer make his announcement tomorrow too? His stats do look better than Orton’s from 09-10…

    I have a feeling that one of them will surprise us, not sure which one, but I really think one of them will be back!

    4, if that happened the NCAA would cancel the season and just mail us the trophy!

    Best wishes for all of them. They take BBN with them wherever they go.

    Know what’s coming but it will still be hard to face.

    Thanks for the memories & for the Banner!

    If they are holding a joint press conference, I cannot see any of them staying. I imagine it is an all for one and one for all.

    Are they going to have hats? One with the UK logo, and the other with the NBA logo. One by one, they make their choice. I think that’s the way to go.

    Does it say anything that all 5 aren’t waiting for the April 29th NBA deadline? Thinking maybe a couple know they are outside the lottery and will return?? Okay, I know they’re all leaving..wishful thinking’s a bit**.

    If even one of them comes back, I’m going to choke Digger Phelps, then throw a chair through Jimmy Dykes head.

    Probably all leaving… but if not
    1-Teague, Harrow
    2-Lamb, Goodwin
    3-Gilchrist, Poythress
    4-Jones, Wiltjer
    5-Davis, Noel
    Cauley, Beckham, Polson, Malone

    First Undefeated Team since ’76

    More like “one for one, all for themselves.” This is the biggest group of selfish players I have ever seen. Go ahead and “get yours” in the NBA. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, you can’t win a national championship with a bunch of sophomores who won the championship ad freshmen. It’s just never been done legitimately.

    presser tomorrow at 2:00 per UK



  27. too soon
    4:40 pm April 16, 2012 Permalink

    If Lamb were planning on coming back, I don’t see him making his decision so soon. I may be off on some of this, and don’t know deadlines, but wouldn’t he wait longer before announcing that he is going to stay? Or does it make sense to announce that he is going, and then in a few days (after feedback) decide to return? I just think if they’re all going in together, before the deadline, that they’re all gone.

    In a surprise move, the player no one is talking about will be coming back for another year — Darius Miller is seeking an appeal from the NCAA to give him another year of eligibility, on the grounds that his first year under BCG was so traumatic that we should forget it ever happened. It’s the seldom used “emotional hardship” rule. Miller for #9!

    I can’t remember anyone ever announcing they are coming back at a press conference so they’re all gone. Thanks for everything fellas and good luck in the future.

    The question is not if they’re all leaving. The question is, do they all go in the first round+ Miller?

    After they all declare tomorrow, do you think that makes Bennett more likely to commit to Kentucky?

    These young men have earned their chance to make it in the NBA and we should all be thankful that we had a chance to see them play as Kentucky Wildcats and wish them the greatest of success in the future no matter what they do.

    No matter that I already know they’re all gone….

    No matter that they deserve it….

    No matter that it makes top recruits want to come here….

    IT STILL SUCKS A BIGGUN!!!

    If they all go – we have 6.75 players in next years rotation as of right now. (.5 Hood; .25 Beckham)

    We need to add at least 2 more.

    All of them will anounce they are coming back to repeat as champions. If they do, I guarantee that unemployment will not go above 8%. BTW…I prevented Wiltjer and Hood from leaving.

    No matter how much you ponder the scenarios, you really never know what’s going to happen. Sources say this and that, but they are just people who are trying to get to the emotions of us fans. Sit back and relax. Enjoy the ride. Whether they leave or not, I know as BBN faithful, we will cheer for these young men next year. They have poured their heart and soul out for the tradition that is Kentucky Basketball. It would be great to have them back, but great to see them go and follow their dreams, just like the many of us are doing, sitting at our office computers.



  49. What if
    4:55 pm April 16, 2012 Permalink

    I really don’t think it will happen, but didn’t Florida’s starters have a joint press conference in 2006 to announce they were all coming back? We know how that worked out for them…

    The CAT’S will be great next year and these guys gave us #8. Lamb is as good a guard as there is. He desreves to go in the first round

    They are all announcing they will file for an extension on their taxes.

    In all seriousness. Thanks for one of the greatest seasons in UK history

    Here’s what scares me…we know Davis will make it; we THINK Jones will make it but since he took an extra year, we’ll still look good even if he doesn’t; we HOPE MKG will make it but I hope he stays another year a la Jones. Lamb is a tossup – another year would help him and Teague. At a point, the success of these kids when they do leave UK is a critical element to Cal’s pitch. If they all go pro and none of them are successful but Davis, I can see opposing coaches using that against us. JMO.

    I think Teague would be better served to come back. With his brother in the league, it’s not like he has to go to support his family.



  56. Stingbass
    6:10 pm April 16, 2012 Permalink

    Looks like they’re all gone, BUT if Lamb or Teague go and get bad reviews back they can still come back if they don’t hire an agent. Here’s to hoping!

    54) It doesn’t matter what they do in the NBA, Cal prepares them better than any other coach for the NBA but once you’re there it’s up to the player to make it happen. Cal is the best coach at getting players into the league, period.
