With supposed 2022 superstar Emoni Bates sort of saying he’ll play for Michigan State if/when he saddles up for college basketball, SLAM Magazine jumped all over another opportunity to promote one of basketball’s young flames. Bates recently won the Gatorade Player of the Year award given to the best men’s high school basketball player in…

Ever since he broke into the coaching world, Kentucky head coach John Calipari has been consistent in two aspects of basketball: winning games and tormenting rivals. So, with that in mind, I decided to look back at four of his funniest and wildest ‘beefs’ in the basketball world throughout his career. John Cheney The earliest…

John Calipari fits rules around him like a belt. Wherever the market is for top players, Calipari owns it. But Reid Travis and Nate Sestina just don’t ring like “John Wall.” Following Wall in 2009, Anthony Davis and Nerlens Noel also took the top spot in 2011 and 2012 – three of Calipari’s first four…

Kentucky’s best basketball player since Anthony Davis is entering her junior season. Coming off a consensus first-team All-American selection as a sophomore, 6-foot-2 superstar wing Rhyne Howard enters her third season as perhaps the most accomplished and exciting women’s player in the nation. And her peers are all leaving. As mentioned, Howard was a sweeping…

What’s your favorite regular season memory from the John Calipari era? Was it in a thundering Rupp Arena against a rival? Or in a vacation spot against a blue blood? Or maybe complete domination? Calipari is better known for his postseason wins (and woes, as of the recent past) but there are a handful of…

Kentucky’s Biggest Basketball Rival: Louisville or Tennessee?

Are we tired of Louisville? They cheat and still don’t win. Before the cheating, they hadn’t been winning, and the Cardinals don’t look to win big anytime soon with underwhelming recruiting and a six-player 2020 offseason overhaul. Did I mention they have NCAA infractions flying in semi-annually? Perhaps Louisville is no longer Kentucky’s finest rival…

Keion brooks

Keion Brooks Jr. is the rarest commodity in college basketball: a patient five-star. A level-headed former blue-chip recruit with the understanding that top-25 recruiting status is all but a promise to play significant minutes at Kentucky; that Brad Calipari’s chest is a mantra to live by as a hooper in Lexington: “Earned Not Given.” As…

Diallo, a second-year member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, is sequestered…

Ashton Hagans

Ashton Hagans is a complicated basketball player, but a disclaimer first: He deserves to be beloved. Dude left e-v-e-r-y-thing on the court and is the best defensive guard to pass through Kentucky in my lifetime. He also exits for the NBA in a world currently befouled by a pandemic. But despite COVID-19, Hagans’ NBA stock…
