DeAndre Liggins lands in Orlando

 

DeAndre Liggins is off the board at #53 to the Orlando Magic.  That about wraps it up.

Go get ’em, DeAndre.  You should know though that the guy with the mustache and unbuttoned shirt isn’t on the custodial staff.  He’s the coach.  And tell Daniel we said hello.  Maybe help him with some coursework.  Congratulations.

    YES!!! Once again, Kentucky OWNS the NBA Draft.

    The only thing left to hope for is that Scotty Hopson goes undrafted…..Those dirty, rotten, snitches.

    I didn’t expect all 4 to get drafted. I was iffy about Liggins and thought there was no way Jorts got drafted. AMAZING GL GUYS.

    Should I watch the rest of the draft just in case someone takes Polson?

    When asked if he had called former teammate Liggins to congratulate him yet, Daniel Orton was heard to say:

    “I can’t mother f#%@&!!”

    With 4 cats drafted, was tonight the 2nd greatest night in the history of kentucky basketball?

    So….over the last two years, every 11th draft choice is from UK. And there are 350+ D-1 schools and a dozen or so foreign countries regularly introducing players into the league. I know this is ridiculous but if Cal stayed for a dozen or so years, and the rate of Cats going in the draft continued as it has been; then a decade from now, the league would be almost 10% UK guys.

    So after tonight UK players in the NBA (assuming retention):

    Nazr Mohammed – OKC
    Jamaal Magloire – Miami
    Tayshaun Prince – Detroit
    Keith Bogans – Chicago
    Kelenna Azubuike – New York
    Chuck Hayes – Houston
    Rajon Rondo – Boston
    Jodie Meeks – Philadelphia
    John Wall – Washington
    DeMarcus Cousins – Sacremento
    Patrick Patterson – Houston
    Eric Bledsoe – Los Angeles (Clipeprs)
    Daniel Orton – Orlando
    Enes Kanter – Utah
    Brandon Knight – Detroit
    Josh Harrellson – New York
    DeAndre Liggins – Orlando

    That puts us with 17 in the NBA (assuming no past players make rosters and all currents/draftees do). As of 2010-2011, UK was #2 in active NBA players with 13. UCLA had 14. We also had the most players through this post, 4. Under the same assumptions, Duke will have 15 and UCLA will have 16. So we’ll be tied with UCLA if you don’t count Enes (which, of course, we do).

    Scotty Hopson, this is what happens when you leave Kentucky to go to Tennessee. Can you say “undrafted”?

    ESPN doing its best to not respect Enes’ wishes to be from UK. Did you know there were only three Kentucky draft picks tonight? Assholes.



  36. SuperTroy

    Jennings goes undrafted too. Cats got FOUR in, and a vol and a card go undrafted. Priceless.

    Its official ESPN hates UK. No Enes-Kentucky even though he dedicated his career to UK fans, and put Brandon Knight-Florida on the recap on SC.

    Awful…

    Best of luck Liggins. Wish we had you another year, but I have to admit it was better timing this year than what should be a crazy talented pool next year. Hope Orlando treats you better than Orton’s misfortune. We’ll be watching for you.

    When I poop, my stools are black, for some reason. Do I need to go to the doctor?

    If they have a tar like look and texture, yes. You are bleeding internally. If not, you’re just a pud wacker.
