It’s Friday night. Dwight Howard took over my television and Twitter. Let’s do this…
The news of the day is that there was no news. None. Nothing. Nada. Most of the country was still out celebrating America’s DOB and that group included everyone with ties to University of Kentucky athletics. But the KSR show doesn’t stop, and that’s why we’re here tonight rambling about nothing. Thanks for coming, I guess. This wedding party really appreciates your enthusiasm.
We did learn on Thursday that the highly anticipated 2010/2012 showdown is tentatively scheduled for September 9th. That is a Monday night, so be sure to set your DVRs to record Monday Night Raw if you plan to attend the game. Most people are siding with the 2010 team in the game, but the 2012 Wildcats could give them a run for their money with Brandon Knight on board. It’ll be exciting to watch either way, a dream game for Big Blue Nation.
Kyle Wiltjer got stuck in an elevator. Yeah, that’s how slow the newswire was running Friday.
UK wide receiver target T.V. Williams will announce his college destination Tuesday. The three-star pass catcher is believed to be leaning toward Kentucky or Nebraska with the edge going to the Wildcats. Yahtzee on the way?
Your boy Eloy Vargas signed with the New York Knicks for the NBA Summer League, according to Nation of Blue. New York opens up the summer against the Pelicans next Friday. Anthony Davis isn’t on New Orleans’ roster, but Eloy will get to see his former teammate, Darius Miller. He’ll see Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller on Monday, July 15.
Let’s play a game! Describe John Calipari’s shirt in four words…
Holy floral, Coach Cal.
Draft Express released its incredibly early 2014 NBA mock draft on Friday. It looks like this:
1. Andrew Wiggins
2. Julius Randle
3. Dante Exum
4. Aaron Gordon
5. Marcus Smart
6. Jabari Parker
7. Andrew Harrison
8. Mario Hezonja
9. Glenn Robinson
10. Montrezl Harrell
11. Mitch McGary
12. Joel Embiid
13. Isaiah Austin
14. James McAdoo
15. Willie Cauley-Stein
24. Aaron Harrison
26. Alex Poythress
Is Dante Exum that good? Third pick? I didn’t realize he had it like that.
That’s exactly right, Emmanuel. Big Blue Nation is the best.
BBN probably has the craziest fans ever!
