James Young Sleeps Throughout History

VVa9K.AuSt.79

The picture above was taken by the Herald Leader’s Mark Mahan at the UK Basketball Picture Day. It showcases James Young catching some shuteye while his teammates go through the picture process. From the moment of its release, the potential of it being iconic has grown and now it is finally here. Just like the famous John Wall Dance Photoshops from 2009 (still some of the internet’s finest work), UK fans have taken to the message boards to create their own “James Young Throughout History” photoshops. I am not sure anything will match the Wall creativity, but this has been some strong work. There are a number of them on the Cats Illustrated site (where the movement started) and many of you have sent them in to us as well. While Drew Franklin is, and always will be, the king of photoshop, the range shown by the UK fans is impressive and after searching through, we have selected our favorite ten:

10. Sleeping Through an Ali Knockout:

6. Sleeping His Way For Freedom:

3. If Coach K Can Do it, So Can James (particularly creative in my view):

Strong work by all the fans. If you have a better one, stick it in the comments section. And please stay quiet…we don’t want to wake up James.

    “showcase” – the most overused word in the history of KSR.

    Figured Titanic would get in there, but I was anticipating the “laying on the couch for Leo’s sketch” scene.

    #1 Even Leonardo DiCaprio realizes he can’t compete with a UK basketball star for the girl!
    #2 Let’s hope those dudes on the skyscraper aren’t U of L fans cause it’s a long way to the bottom!

    Ali picture reminded me of “4.1 James”. He can flip the light switch and be in bed before the room
    is dark.

    I would like to request one with the clown guy who is scaring everyone in that small town in England. I suck at photoshop or I would do it myself.

    Matt, please make it your mission to get either a UK station or UK radio program for morning and afternoon drivetimes up and running in Louisville. I have to suffer through two UL programs in morning and one in the afternoon. Aside from your 10-12 show, we have nothing. With arguably the largest UK fanbase in the state, we need more UK (and less UL).
