Its the end of a long night, but I have to say once again that the atmosphere at Memorial tonight was something special. I have never really been in an environment where we saw what we did tonight, players interacting with fans, Coach Calipari mingling with the fans, the UK band playing in the background, fans universally excited and having fun…it was just a great environment that I havent been part of prior. I will have much more about this on Saturday and Sunday, but suffice to say that the highlight was once again Demarcus Cousins. The guy has the most personality and is friendlier with fans than any player I have seen since Ramel Bradley. Wait and see, he has fan favorite written all over him.
More details tomorrow night and Sunday. Some pics:
