Marquis Teague on his rookie season in the NBA

Man, it sure would’ve been nice to have Marquis Teague back at Kentucky for a sophomore season last year. But we can’t think like that. Teague made the decision to turn pro and now his first season in the NBA is in the books after the Bulls were bounced from the playoffs in the Eastern Conference semifinals last week.

The Advocate-Messenger caught up with the former Wildcat recently to discuss life at the next level, his time at Kentucky and John Calipari’s incoming class. And because I know you don’t feel like reading a lot today, I took notes from the interview.

The highlights:

— His rookie season was a learning experience

— He plans to stay in Chicago this summer to prepare for next season

— Playing with NBA players in Lexington prior to his freshman season helped build confidence and chemistry

— Though he hasn’t seen much of Cal’s new class, he thinks the 2011-12 team would win head-to-head

— The Bulls will be good when Rose is back

Read the entire interview here.

Great stuff from the Advocate-Messenger.
