Less than a week ago, five former wildcats made their dreams come true by getting drafted to various teams in the NBA. You may have heard of this. Now you have a chance to be the guy that is too old to wear jerseys, but does it anyways. Not wanting to miss out on the proud tradition of printing shirts for whatever reason shared by the University of Kentucky, The NBA has already started merchandising our former players.
If you’d like to get a Wizards Wall jersey, you can order one from their store. Funnily enough, as Wall hasn’t decided what number to wear yet, the picture of the jersey is still a generic ‘draft pick,’ one. So for the next week or so, you can still pretend like it’s going to be your name showing up on the Wizards active roster. Unless your Gilbert Arenas.
There are similar jerseys available for Patterson and yes, even one for Daniel Orton, but due to the nature of the trades in the NBA, the Clippers have yet to release a ‘soon to be official replica jersey,’ for Bledsoe.
For those of you that want to support our Cats, but don’t want to have to follow the strict no-bathing regimen that goes along with wearing a sports jersey in public, over at the Sacramento store the Kings have produced a quick Cousins shirt, something much more appropriate for a fan to wear. But if you insist, they have replica jerseys, too.
