    Rex is my favorite of all time. Didn’t realize he was such a cut up. Seems like a cool guy.

    I can still remember… “Welcome to Rexington”! on the newspaper headline.

    Kid put “jump” into the white boy academy.

    Could have been the “Favorite Cat” of all time if he had stayed 4 years.

    #6 why does staying 4 years make him more likeable? I loved Knight last year and wished he had stayed for this season but it doesn’t make me like him anyless because he didn’t…..staying another year wouldn’t have vaulted him up on the list just would have been more memories. Personally Rex is right there with Macy, Dirk, the Unforgetables and Chuck Hayes to me.

    Rex, thank you for always representing BBN. We appreciate the love and humor you bring to everyone’s lives on a daily basis. I always enjoy your spots on The Jim Rome show. Visit Rupp and be the “Y” as soon as possible.

    I know he use to work with Denver Nuggets, just didn’t know if he was still there.

    Great video. Never knew King Rex was so funny until recently. I am thrilled to see him associating with UK. I use to think he did not like UK very much. I still have not seen a more popular player than King Rex and there have been some great ones.
