    How cool would it be if the former Cats came out in their respective home UK uniforms?!!?

    The game is at 7:30, not 7.

    And if Rajon Rondo is really gonna be in it, then this is officially going to be the absolute coolest thing ever in the world. Him playing alongside John Wall and Cousins is awesome. Not to mention it is huge in terms of him re-connecting with UK.

    Why can’t Patterson and Hayes play? Some Rockets/China deal or something? Why only 8 guys? They should add Sheppard and Stevenson, plus Crawford and Bradley to fill out the bench.

    Crawford and Bradley both had surgery not that long ago. They may not be able to play.

    I really hope the presale is tomorrow not Friday, I work weekends so I was counting on it being tomorrow so I could get tickets

    They’re called the “Kentucky Pros” – so I guess that’s why there’s no Sheppard, Stevenson, Crawford, Bradley, etc.

    1. This is awesome Calipari at his finest.
    2. I really hope it is on TV.
    3. Why only 8 guys, would love to see patterson, hayes and bogans all play in this game.
    4. Tipton will probably write something negative here in a day or so about this event.
    5. Are they paying the NBA guys or are they just coming in to play some ball?
