Cliff Alexander will make you feel old…

Do you want to feel old? Just listen to 2014 5-star prospect Cliff Alexander talk about Kentucky basketball and the fact that it was his dream school growing up. Steve Jones of the Courier-Journal caught up with Alexander after his AAU game today. Alexander talked about the fact that Kentucky basketball was his dream school growing up, and that he looked up to players like John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and DeAndre Liggins as a young player.  I don’t know about you, but that made me feel pretty old to think of those guys as being his heroes as a kid growing up. John Calipari is still very interested in Alexander, and he says he hears from Calipari often.

    Why would that make anybody feel old? That was only 3 seasons ago. Now if he says Taysaun Prince you gotta case there.

    Because he says growing up players that inspired him where from only the four years that coach cal has been at kentucky. He is still a kid and kid’s these days don’t know who Taysaun Prince is.. they only know 2 or 3 years ago.

    #6. Maybe he dont know who Prince is. I was just picking a random guy from a little further back. 2-3 ago shouldnt make anybody feel old. And when I say who I followed as a kid, I go back to 5 years old (Sam Bowie), so its alk relative to when you started watching ball too.

    9. For us it was 2-3 years ago, but for him it was his growing up period. That’s what can make someone feel old. He was just starting high school when Cal came to UK.

    I remember looking up to Prince, Bogans, Hayes, Cliff Hawkins, Shepard, Mohammed, Turner, Walker and others.

    Yep, I feel old. But then again, age is a relative thing, and I myself looking up to those players would make people feel old too. lol
