Wait, what Illinois?

That is the most Michael Kidd-Gilchrist looking Michael Kidd-Gilchrist I’ve ever seen. I know he’s a passionate guy and all, but Nike…he didn’t go there. You know that, right?

    So we are loaning out former players to do add. As Cal Said “WE ARE THE GOLD STANDARD”

    Speaking of Illinois, how the HELL does a team with a sub .500 conference record make the tournament ?

    I hope they are paying MKG for using his face.

    Im a professional photographer who has photographed a lot of KY talent -Nichole Scherzinger/Jennifer Lawrence – this is an obvious use of a photograph of MKG being obscured enough to sell as a STOCK photo. Stock photos you can buy from the photographer or the photos agent and use for anything you want.

    This kind of creepy photography is hitting Lexington hard as photographers want to fatten their portfolios with NBA players.

    For all we know MKG may have colluded with the photographer after the photo became classic. It’s a great photo but it is iconic, and MKG should be compensated, and NIKE should know better than to piss off BBN.

    Are you implying that all black people look alike? That image doesn’t faintly resemble MKG, except that both are black athletes.

    @nikebasketball (Which is an official twitter account) has been the one posting them. MKG isn’t the only one they’ve done this to.

    3 – because they play in the strongest conference in America, and have beaten Gonzaga, Indiana, Ohio State, Butler, and Minnesota (twice) this year?
