Hey, did you know CJ Leslie is playing in Lexington this weekend? I thought I should remind you in case it somehow slipped your mind. To continue the CJ Leslie-themed week here at KSR, I thought I’d share this little gem with you from last night’s ABC 36 News.
The ABC 36 video focuses on the Word of God star’s interest in Kentucky and how Lexington fits into the equation. In the interview, Leslie says, “I’m definitely feeling Kentucky” and “they have some of the best fans around.” It seems that the future could be very bright for Kentucky in the race for the fifth best available player in the 2010 class. Just don’t tell his coach that CJ is the fifth best player available. Coach Erasto Hatchett, a Lexington native, says CJ Leslie is the best player in the country despite his ranking. Let’s hope that’s true, and that “Baby K.G.” ends up at UK.
