BBN Ambassadors in Action

Who you got?

The NBA season officially got under way yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited. I know that most of you are staunchly anti-NBA and that’s understandable, but while it’ll always be second to college basketball in my heart, I can’t get enough of the professional game. If you happened to sneak out on Christmas family time and catch the games, you would have seen two young point guards with close ties to Kentucky program put on impressive performances.

There is no longer a big three. There is Rondo, a group of old men and Marquis Daniels. Without a doubt, Rondo is the most important player on the Boston Celtics. He nearly brought that team back from a huge deficit in New York against the Knicks without the help he’s had in years past. While the Celtics ended up losing, none of the blame can be put on Rondo, who finished with 31 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and five steals.

While Rondo’s performance was one of the most impressive of Christmas day, the title of most impressive might belong to Derrick Rose. Rose finished the night with 22 points, but none more important than his go ahead floater in the waning seconds of the game. Coach Cal’s most notable protege and the reigning NBA MVP is picking up right where he left off last season.

    Derrick Rose is no more an ambassador for BBM than Tony Delk is for Louisville because he played for Pitino. Quit making UK fans look pathetic by trying to claim what isn’t ours. If anything, Rose is partially to blame for Cal’s national image as a cheater. I want no part of him.

    Rose helps Cal’s recruiting. He doesn’t help Memphis’. In that sense he is an ambassador to UK. Recruits care about who coached him, not what dumpster fire in West Tennessee he suited up for.

    Rose helps Cal’s recruiting? So the person that got Cal’s FF appearance vacated is a help? Cal has no ill will toward Rose, but Rose should NOT be linked to UK, imo. He stands for what is wrong in the recruiting process. Cheating, lying on tests. No thanks.

    Rose has no link to the BBN. As a matter of fact, the BBN would be well served to stay as far away from him asa possible…

    10) Would you not think it kind of pathetic if Minnesota fans were posting the nightly box scores for Rondo and calling him an “ambassador for Minnesota basketball”? We don’t need to try and claim Rose. We have enough true ambassadors out there to root for.

    Noobdy cares about the NBA. When are the bloggers of this site going to get that. If this is such a high profile NBA town then we would have a team. Nobody gives a rats ass about the NBA. I think the bloggers are losing sight of what made this a neat site. Mr Jones and crew do not speak for the BBN and they need to remember that. I suspect that he will slowly lose support he once had, beginning with mine…..

    *** Blogger Edit ***

    Who gave you permission to speak for everyone?

    You don’t like the NBA. That doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t.

    Not sure if 16 and 18 actually talk to any other UK fans outside of their inbred families, but I have always enjoyed and appreciated the NBA, and I know plenty of other cats fans who do to. So blow it out your asses, you barely have the presence of mind to speak for yourselves, and you sure as hell don’t deserve to speak for the rest of BBN or even just the readers of this site

    derrick rose? r u serious. bad connection to have concerning college bball. nba sux and is boring, yes blogger some like it, but go ahead and take one of the ksr polls and see who cares about it. you cannot even hardly follow former players if you even did like it due to who they always show on tv. any washington games on tv last year? any sac kings games? didnt think so. derrick rose is a known cheater and associated with cal. not a good choice to be an ambassodor for anything except how to cheat to get into college

    Rose? Come on, man. Why not Jorts? He held back a fellow knicker from going at it with kg.

    16-18-20….What are you all talking about? The NBA is a league for the best players in the world. Regardless of their effort or anything else, these are the most skilled players together in one league, IN THE WORLD. If you truly enjoy the sport of basketball, you should enjoy the NBA because it provides the best players playing in meaningful games.

    Rose? Get Real! In other news BBN ambassador Shawn Kemp fathered another child.

    If Rose is an ambassador, so are we!



  20. F*** Rose

    Until Rose mans up, admits he cheated, and apologizes to Memphis and the fans…..he doesn’t deserve an ounce of respect or BBN recognition. I suppose we should all look up to laptop stealin’, pay for play Newton as well.

    Please quit including anything remotely related to Rose and cease linking BBN with a world class loser who’s happens to be good at basketball.

    wow, derrick rose no matter what is NOT an ambassador of BBN. maybe of those fans who wish to adopt him, but that cheater is Not apart of this brotherhood.

    As a firm Celtics fan I must question something. Old people, Rondo, and Marquis? What about Brandon Bass, I’d hate to be on the wrong end of one of those dunks.
