Archie Goodwin discovers Vine

What a jokester!

Over the weekend, I introduced my friends to Vine, the new social media app that allows you to take short videos and share them with friends. While many of them rolled their eyes at the latest “hip” social media fad, some were pretty intrigued. As they should be. Like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and countless other apps before it, Vine is all what you make of it. You have good “Viners,” who will take creative videos that tell a story, and you have your bad “Viners,” who post videos of their food or a drunken night out. Most of us fall somewhere in between.

I haven’t quite decided what kind of Viner Archie Goodwin is yet. Archie added the app on Friday and has taken 14 videos so far, most of which are just him talking to the camera. The result is both bizarre and hilarious. Here are some of my favorites:

New Geico spokesman?

Singing in the car:

Archie has always been a little mysterious. From his sassy wink during the All-Access intro to his sometimes out of control play on the court, it’s been a little hard to get a good read on the talented freshman. Like any other player, we were desperate to love him. When he dunked, we burred. When the rest of the team had seemingly given up on the season, Archie was one of the few players to stand up and actually show some heart on the court. After the season ended so tragically in Moon Township, Archie said that none of the players were ready to go to the NBA and pledged to return, only to change his mind a few weeks later. Based on the unique situation presented by this year’s weak draft, you can’t really blame him for going after his dream, but the decision still stung, especially when Archie angrily defended it on Twitter. Regardless, we wish him the best of luck, and please, Archie, keep Vining. I only wish you had started sooner.

Oh yeah, he has one last message to all the haters:

    I wish him the best and hope he makes his dreams come true, but Archie is probably my least favorite UK player in history.

    I didn’t like him earlier on, but liked him more and more as the season progressed since he showed some energy and flashes. He did play selfish at times, but they didn’t have many scoring options or aggressive players around him. Good luck to him. On to next year’s team..

    I wish any former Cat all the best but Archie should be using this time to work on his outside jumper.

    Archie made the biggest improvement in his game this past season than ANY other UK player did.

    #6 No he didn’t, he didn’t learn to pass it after he drove the lane to the wide open player. I’m happy he left because I felt like he would of killed team chemistry next year doing the same thing. Nice to see others not just looking at PPG.

    I wish the kid well, I hope he has a productive NBA career. I just don’t see it happening though, at least not for a while, he just can’t handle the ball that well.

    Why do you give this clown more air time? If you people think he gives 2 shats about UK, you’re delusional. He could care less about UK or his teammates. He was NBA all the way. Good riddance, thanks for the NIT loss.

    Is there anyway to link to vines instead of embedding them? They auto-play and it slows my computer waaaaaay down.

    My hope for Archie is that he finished his Spring Semester clases in good standing and doesn’t hurt our APR. If he did that for us, then I wish him well,

    Least favorite player at UK since Rod Rhodes. Couldn’t shoot finish or pass…selfish in everyway. Huge break for UK with him leaving. Totally uncoachable.

    I would never wish any bad luck to any former member of the BBN nor should any real UK fan but it was very hard to root for him this year because I do think he is a selfish player and very uncoachable but I wish him all the best and good luck in life-but better figure out how to be team 1st and individual 2nd.

    Numbers: 1 (he’s mine also), 4 (I agree with you for agreeing with #1),6 (What games were you watching and who was this player you refer to as Archie? The games you saw certainly were not the ones I saw and the Archie you refer to certainly is not the player named Archie who I saw play! Maybe you should change your moniker to ‘dontknowathingaboutbasketball’. Just saying), 7, (can you believe #6 said what he just said?), 13 (IMO, best comment thus far), 15 (he should be forgotten), 17 (but I doubt it), 18 (he will & it won’t take long to get there), 19 (you said it). Great comments. Arch, by declaring for the NBA draft, what you really did was to trade a 2nd year playing with what could be, I said could be, one of the best teams in not only UK history, but in all of college basketball thus far, just to play in the D-League. Yes, the D-League. But before you get sent down, the playing time that you will actually see in the NBA will be very minimal. But having said this, I still believe that your NBA playing time the first year will still be more then what you would have gotten for UK this year. It seems to me at least, that you never learned anything from UK’s previous team, the NCAA champions. What made them the champions was their unselfishness. This meant that they valued team accomplishments over individual accomplishments. Having played this way the whole year, they accomplished both. . .collectively, they became NCAA champions, and individually, of the 6 players who entered the NBA draft, 4 went in the 1st round, the other 2 in the 2nd round. They also did something which had never been done before. . .the #1 and #2 players drafted from the same team. It doesn’t seem that playing for the good of the team instead of self hurt any of them, especially Anthony Davis & Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who were drafted 1 & 2. If you need an example of an NBA player who, in my opinion plays selfishly, then look no further than Carmello Anthony. Sure, he scores a lot of points, but then he also takes a lot of shots. I doubt if he even knows what an assist is. He probably thinks it’s where he throws the ball off the backboard to himself before he shoots. Although he was this year’s NBA scoring leader, he did so with an assist from Kevin Durant, due to Durant sitting out the last game which allowed Anthony to surpass him in that category. But this is all Anthony did. And as long as he remains selfish, this is all he will ever accomplish in his NBA career. It was also that Davis, Gilchrist, and the others were very coachable, something which this years team did not seem to be. IMO, the only players who were better at the end of the year than they were at the first were Noel,Cauley-Stein, and Mays. Anyway, I hope that your first year in the D-League is far better then your year at UK. But if you play the same on the pro level as you did on the college level, I doubt very seriously that it will be.
