Apparently, it’s good to be the King. Or at least associated with him. According to Gentleman John Clay’s Twitter account, the latest whispers in a 72-hour period of pure Bluegrass recruiting chaos is that LeBron James called Marquis Teague himself to help him pull the trigger for the Cats. Clay tweeted thsi out:
“Big Blue world is abuzz that LeBron James called Marquis Teague to seal the deal for Kentucky.”
I’m not sure if there are any rules or restrictions on such acts or if Cal just took a page out of the book of Adolph Rupp, who was rumored to have made Wah Wah Jones deliver a singing telegram to Pat Riley during his senior year, but it’s at least a strong enough rumor to get put out by someone in the mainstream media. And, it points to Teague heading to UK. Therefore, I’ll take it.
