— That’s Dr. Mashburn to you —
Quick, call your primary care physicians and fire them, because it looks like there is a new doctor in town. UK announced today that Jamal Mashburn will receive an honorary doctorate degree from the university. And don’t forget to request that they transfer your file/records to your new doc. Such a hassle if you forget that part.
This decision was the call of the UK Board of Trustees. The degree will be in the area of “Humanities.” This honorary title will make Mashburn arguably the most professionally diverse to ever wear the Kentucky Wildcat uniform. Apart from being a retired NBA player, he is a part owner in 38 Outback Steakhouses, 39 Papa John’s joints, three Dunkin’ Donuts, multiple car dealerships in Kentucky, plenty of real estate, and even thoroughbred horses.
That, my friends, is what you call of
Jack Jamal of all trades. And yes, that horrible pun is what I will be leaving you with this evening. Enjoy your Sunday night and you better be tuned into either Wrestlemania of Mad Men tonight.
