    Best part about that dunk is that Davis was the one on his back trying to slam it in, too.

    Still using the “Davis was a point guard in high school” line even in the NBA

    Davis has gotten stronger!! It’s funny cause point guard is like “can I have the ball” and Davis is all like NO!! and takes it all himself, haha. And he tries to get the putback over Wall, his own teammate.

    5. I know. Every single game they mentioned his growth spurt. It was super annoying. They still do it, and it’s still annoying.

    Anthony Davis took the 5th most shots in the national title game.

    Who invited Chandler Parsons?!? Apparently somebody who didn’t know how much he sucks. Wow.

    Willie Cauley-Stein was a wide receiver in high school.

    Parsons has been incredible in the NBA. Maybe you should try paying attention.

    Davis, Cousins, and Wall should all make the team. Other than Rondo and Rose (when hes playing) are there any better PG In the league than Wall? In 5 years the All Star game roster will be 50% UK guys. Wall, Davis, and Cousins are all the future of their positions.

    davis was about to give 100% and then took a little of the gas after wall went sky high

    14. I agree, Wall is my guy any day of the week. But id put Kyrie up there….he and Wall are the best young PGs in the league getting to the rim….and Kyrie looked like the Truth in that scrimmage.

    They way Wall reacted, you would have thought he just did something important like cure cancer instead of just dunking a stupid ball.

    17) Linda, good point.
    Painfully good point…

    Wall oblivious that Davis would have just done the same but without the “me” celebration. That’s what made Davis so unbelievable in today’s basketball culture. Guys like him only come along once in a lifetime. So glad he came through here.

    20 – You maybe right. God forbid John Wall get excited about playing basketball. Shame on him.

    14) CP3, Rose, Irving, Rondo, Wall. In that order

    Based on last night I take the 2012 team over the 2010 team in the upcoming scrimmage. MKG and AD looked very good. AD still needs to get stronger, but was knocking down all kinds of outside shots.

    Cousins and Wall had a couple good plays, but overall did not stand out during the game. Neither could make a shot and aside from the first quarter the blue team was pretty much taken apart while they were on the floor. And Cousins body language is still pretty bad. Always looking at the ref for calls and hustling about half the time.

    Kyrie was clearly the best player on the floor, and it wasn’t close.

    It’s amazing to imagine what kind of team we would have had in 2012 if we had Wall as a senior (along with Bledsoe and Boogie), and A.Davis as a freshman. You could have easily had A.D. moving out to PF with Boogie in the middle.

    22. Ty Lawson and Mike Conley both looked better than Wall last night as well. If he doesn’t develop an outside shot he’s going to continue to struggle as d’s lay back and cut off his drives to the basket.

    24. A lot of teams would be better if their players stuck around… Duke w/ Irving, UNC w/ Barnes, OSU w/ Sullinger and Conley, etc. UK would be a top 5 team, but as Irving showed last night, he’d be tough to beat.

    17, I think it would be the most restrained researcher ever who cured cancer and yelled for a half a second about it as the total celebration. Most would take a victory lap around the planet that would last YEARS, and essentially be the guest of honor at parties for the rest of their lives. Their life could be a non-stop celebration from that point on and no one would blame them. Meanwhile, John Wall, admittedly did a small thing in dunking a basketball, but his celebration, once you think about what celebrations for major accomplishments ACTUALLY look like, was also small. A brief, excited yell that didn’t appear to even last a full second. It may be a small feat, but it was also a small celebration. Sometimes people should take joy in the everyday, y’know?

    Kyrie is really good, but he’s a ball hog. He’s what Austin Rivers wants to be.

    Is that DeAndre Jordan he slamming over? Maybe a little payback for Brandon Knight!

    I gotta say, Wall takes the celebrations after a good play to ridiculous levels and he always has. Go back and watch the tapes of him at UK. He had to pop his jersey or beat his chest or yell after EVERY SINGLE MADE SHOT, or dunk, or good pass, etc. (If he did something good, he let everyone in the building know about it) Playing armchair psychologist, it’s almost like he is low on self confidence and he has to validate for himself how good he is after every play. (That last sentence is why non-psychologists shouldn’t play armchair psychologist!) At the end of the day, I have no problem with a celebration or jersey pop after a big play, but Wall just does it way too much if you ask me. If you are the man, your play will show it, you don’t have to gesture, or mouth off, or yell after every good play to tell me how good you are…

    Which of these two “One and Done’s” does Jeff Sheppard wish Cal had not recruited? Where does he wish they had gone? I rest my case.
