Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Kentucky Pros vs. UK Villains? Yes, please.

WKYT is reporting the most awesome thing you’ll ever hear. An exhibition game between the Kentucky Pros and a team of UK Villains could be coming in the near future.

Rajon Rondo, Nazr Mohammed, Tayshaun Prince, Chuck Hayes, Jodie Meeks, DeAndre Liggins, Josh Harrellson, Eric Bledsoe, Patrick Patterson and Kelenna Azubuike have all agreed to play in a game against the “UK Villains.” The Villains team could potentially include names like Kemba Walker, Rudy Gay, Tyler Hansbrough, Nolan Smith, Eric Gordon, Terrence Williams, Joakim Noah, Kenneth Faried and Shelvin Mack.

It’s all talk at this point so don’t get too excited. We can still hope, though.

Please let this happen.

    A bunch of millionaire NBA stars will play an exhibition game in front of 23,000 people who will probably verbally abuse them during the game and their time in Lexington. I”m sorry, but I just find that hard to believe.

    Plus I don’t consider Nolan Smith, Kenneth Faried, or Shelvin Mack “villains”. Smith never even played us (although I guess his dad was a Card), and I actually like Faried and Mack.

    this will never happen…and i think the villians may take this one. Besides tho, Faried is a card villian

    Do Matt Walsh and Anthony Roberson have the sack to step up?

    I’d pay to see any one of those Cat greats take on Joakim Noah 1-on-1.

    Noah has to wear his Florida jersey.

    Nazr has to wear the ’96 denim. Ha!

    What are the chances we could add Laettner to that lineup…?

    What about Taquan Dean, David Lee, and you have to include D-Wade. Mack, Smith, and Faried are not really villains. Sean May

    also I really think Randolph Morris should be on the UK villains team also

    I doubt this will ever happen. But if it did, Wall and Cousins need to play.

    Which team will Daniel Orton play for?

    Yea buddy

    The Pro players are desperate to find games to play in to stay in shape; with the NBA cancelling preseason games last week, and no hope of the NBA starting anytime soon, time to come play in Rupp.

    NBA players might as well just come stay in Lexington; UK has an NBA training facility, more than enough good competition to play against, and since UK is the center of the basketball universe, why not just come to Lexington.

    I think the picture is misleading – I think that the UK team would only play against men.

    I’m sure a lot of these guys have their own indoor basketball courts at their homes. Not to mention the means to hire personal trainers if they are that worried about getting out of shape.

    Agreed. Saul Smith really needs to be the villains pg. They will also be coached by BCG and uniforms sponsored by Pearls wholesale grocery company.

    Miles Simon, Mike Bibby, Bobby Hurley and Saul Smith

    As #1 said… Gotta have DWade in there. He is definitely a UK villain after he single handedly whipped out butts in the NCAA tourney.

    In no way should Faried and Mack be on a Villains team. Also, if this game happens, we have to get Wall and Cousins on board (Enes, maybe?) or risk losing.

    Can we really never post another Joakim Noah photo on here ever again, unless he is found dead in a transvestite whorehouse with a needle in his arm! That would be the only defendable reason!

    Noah, Horford, Wade, The guy at UAB-Squeaky?, Simon, Bibby and I know he’s in jail but #FreeLaettner, Kemba Walker coached by BCG and Pearl

    Faried just tweeted to Nolan Smith and Kemba Walker: “Look how funny this is.”

    They wouldn’t do it just to stay in shape. I’m sure these guys would get paid nicely for their time.

    Faried & Mack aren’t villains. I love those guys. I want them on our team.

    Is it too late to get Danny Ferry

    Devan Downey and that ogre from UGA that knocked out Ramel need to be on the team

    We would have to get Maglorie to come back and get Wojciechowski on the other team!!

    Laettner and WOJO would be a plus and let Billy Clyde coach the villains!!!!!!

    Nolan Smith never played a game against Kentucky… that’d be an odd guy to include.

    villians coached by bruce pearl who will also grill out for everyone?

    I would add the Shermanator, Nick Calathes, to the group of villains. Couldn’t stand that little weasel.

    Laetner is out of shape. The only muscle he’ll be working out in the near future is his sphincter. Hopefully, but not soon enough, he’ll be receiving hard personal training from coaches Rod, Peter, and Johnson. Hopefully, he’ll continue to feel stiff throughout his incarceration.
