    Damn! Very nice to see ๐Ÿ™‚
    Marcus Smart’s dunks were amazing as well.

    I’m not gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but every time I see Randle play, and I start to think about the upcoming season…I get a chub. (รขโ€”โ€˜_รขโ€”โ€˜)

    Randle reminds me of Dominique Wilkins

    Love randle, but he better be shooting about 100 free throws a day — he’s gonna get fouled a lot!!

    Love the smile, not only is he good, everyone around him has a good time. Reminds me of Derrick Anderson’s smile.

    We will need him to be a machine, especially if the Young rumors prove to be true.

    #2, with a comment like that, please go ahead and spell out your last name, or at least put in the second letter, because my name too is kevin c and you’re embarrassing me

    My first reaction is that’s really impressive. Then you notice how small he is in this video compared to how ripped he was in the picture of him that was posted the other night, you have to believe that he’s really shown improvement since this was taken.

    Tall, athletic people dunking. Not that a couple of the dunks weren’t nice, but I’m generally unimpressed with stuff like this. Rather see some impressive free throws or jump shots from randle.

    Matt, can you give an update on the Harrison’s and Young’s situation? Throughout the summer, I’ve not worried about this as the NCAA tends to take their sweet time, but they’re only 2 weeks out from the fall semester starting. Are they going to be on campus starting the semester?

    I am sorry that the real world has passed me by. But I also wish they still used a peach basket for the hoop. And I still have a black and white boob tube. By the way, has anyone seen my dentures?

    Geez, he is amazingly quick, agile and athletic for being 6’9 and 240+ pounds…and I think #12 is right that he looks like he’s getting even stronger and fitter. I think that we are indeed lucky to have guys like Randle, Wiggins, Gordon, Smart and Andrew Harrison in college BBall this year….it is a loaded class with some real upper-echelon NBA athletes. I just hope that we’re not going to lose Young, as that would be a big blow-I was really looking forward to seeing him.

    Both the twins and Young will be on campus in a little over a week. Please quit worrying people, their high schools go longer and they’ve just been waiting to get cleared.

    #6 not to disagree but Derek Anderson was skinny and didn’t have the face up game Randle does. Randle reminds me of Jamal Mashburn, because of his ball skills and all around game. He’s not as good from deep as Jamal but better at taking his man to the basket. his face up game is un match haven’t seen a big guy so skilled at taking his man off the dribble in quite some time. Remind you of LeBron James don’t get me wrong he’s not LeBron James, but he might as well be in college with those skills.it would have been nice to see him in the dunk contest at the McDonald’s All American game, would have been one more guy to beat out the next LeBron James that Wiggins kids. You know the one the guy that went to 2 All American Games, and with all his greatness brung home no hardware. Leaving that for his so called inferior competition Randle / Parker / Gordon. You know the ones, the ones that have No chance against the great Wiggins hahahaha !!! BBN ILF#9

    #18 thanks I hope you heard that from a reliable source, I’ve been freaking out not really a little worried though

    That is in the University of Texas at Arlington gymnasium, they’re playing at Rupp on November 19.

    Wow! Can’t wait to see him in a game. How would you feel being one of those schmucks in the gym with them that can’t dunk. Haha

    Pat Forde is cross-eyed due to the constant staring at a blank page. Its tough to write about stuff other than his sweet sweet Rick.

    13. Impressive free throws? You probably wonder why a scholly hasn’t been offered to the 5’3 PG from Clay County.

    #2 you’re a class act

    Wow. Most of JR’s dunks would’ve received 10’s in the NBA dunk contest.

    Haha 25. Well sorry for not being excited by a 6’9″ guy dunking on an open rim. Unfortunately when UK plays this fall they will be playing against 5 other guys and with Randle being the beast that he is, getting to the rim won’t be an issue, but if you think teams are just going to get dunked on by us all year (and yes we’ll be doing a lot of dunking) without trying to make us earn it by fouling and putting us at the stripe then you’re crazy. So given the fact I already knew randle could dunk, yes I would have rather watched a video of him going 80/100 at the line.
