Nazr Mohammed teams up with Marquis Teague

Marquis Teague was two years old when Nazr Mohammed moved to Lexington to play basketball for Kentucky. Now, the two Cats who had a hand in three of UK’s eight national championships will be playing together in Chicago.

It was reported a week ago that Nazr, a Chicago native, would join the Bulls but it didn’t become official until today when he signed the deal. The terms of the contract were not released.

The only thing left to do is pick a number. Can my man get lil’ help?

Go Bulls.

    Thanks for your time as a UK wildcat player and your time in the NBA as UK wildcat bball program ambassodor. You wear whatever number you want big guy but based on the two ideas from your tweet, I like 48 to represent where your from. Obviously, there is a possibility that this could be your last stop in your pro career (you’ve already had an impressive career by anybody’s standard) so I think it would be cool to go out with a number that pays respects to where it all started for you. Either way, BBN wishes you nothing but the best in all you do and keep repping the Blue/White so well like you always do. Peace

    54 is my number and should be retired. If Nazr takes it he might as well wear the goggles too.

    48…on another note, as member of the BBN living in Oklahoma, you made this a better state by your presence Nazr. You’ll be missed!

    Wear #48 to honor Mr. Wildcat & the BBN, as well as where you came from.
