Ramel Bradley: My One Year Plan


Ramel Bradley started a new website this week and has a new plan for the next year. He tells it to the fans on KSR below:


You must believe in a DREAM before it can become a reality. The Big Blue Nation carries on this belief better than any program in the nation. Anything short of excellence is not an option. We strive for the best because we want to be the best. Year in and year out, the Kentucky basketball program moves forward with the mindset of being the elite standard in college ball. Over time this positive energy keeps building and that momentum is what we call Bleeding Blue.

The Kentucky program wants to take players that believe in being the best. The tradition is created and carried on by individuals that are striving to make dreams come true. As a player, I feel the most important part of this game is heart. If somebody truly wants something bad enough in life, it is the fire inside that drives them towards that goal. This passion is born and lived through Kentucky basketball every year.

I feel I left it all on the court regardless of any situation. No matter the size or speed of the man I was against, I played with all I had. During my four years, I hope I was seen as giving Kentucky all I could. This same passion lives on today and I realize more now than ever before that I want to continue representing the BLUE & WHITE positively into the future.

As a UK graduate, it’s my job to push myself and carry on that Big Blue Spirit. Over the summer I’ve been focusing on what I can do to become a better player and I’ve put myself on a “ONE YEAR PLAN.” I had a sit down with my agent, Andy Miller, and asked if he believed in my dream. I explained to him I want to surround myself with people that have confidence and share my belief and he’s 110% on board. I told Andy I didn’t want to get on a summer league team this year because I want to go back overseas this next season and focus more on my game. Next summer I’m coming back with one goal and that’s to get a spot on an NBA roster. The journey never ends and for me it’s just starting. At the end of this I’m driven by my passion to represent two places deep in my heart – BROOKLYN let’s go hard and KENTUCKY let’s bleed blue.

It should be an interesting year. I wish all the new guys entering the league best of luck and for all the new players on campus I hope their dreams are lived. For me, I’m in New York City until August and then I’ll be going back overseas for this season. I launched a website this week and will be posting a few different things in the near future. I’m doing some video talks with a few of my old coaches in New York and I’ll post footage of some upcoming street tournaments in the City. I could use that Big Blue Nation support as I’m trying to create this buzz over the coming year. I’m working harder than ever and the goal is to be representing in the league starting next season. Stay in touch, check out my website and I appreciate the love!
