Bobby Portis is saltier than Rupp Arena popcorn

Joshua Lindsey | USA Today

The news of Malik Monk committing to Kentucky didn’t sit well with former Arkansas forward Bobby Portis. Portis tweeted, “I didn’t need Kentucky to make it to the NBA but thats none of my business.”

It’s a fair point, because Portis is indeed in the NBA. Good for him. Dream come true and all that.

But may I remind you, Bobby — you didn’t have a scholarship offer to play basketball at Kentucky.

    Saw somebody else tweet (forgot who) that He probably would have been a lottery pick if he went to UK. Which is absolutely the truth. Portis had some solid talent which is what got him drafted. but he would have had a lot more exposure and success at UK.

    True. Bobby is a great talent and hates to lose. He has anger issues though. His comment may have meant he didn’t want KY to be an NBA team next year because they will have the talent! !!

    You’re arguing with a kid on Twitter. Way to show him who’s boss.

      You’re arguing with him in a comment section. Way to show him who’s boss.

    I love when the Franklin apologists pile on. It’s still worth the backlash to point out that this is Drew’s life. A 30-something male who still uses the social references of a high school kid. As you were, kids.

      I see your argument, but I would counter that he’s not arguing with a kid, he’s arguing with a high-profile basketball player who is now in the NBA and is legally a man. If you’re of a high-profile, you’re going to open yourself up to more arguments online than a normal 19-20 year old would.

      What part of “in the most ridiculous manner possible” don’t you understand?

      Yeah a guy in his 20’s making fun of another guy in his 20’s. I’d say your comment says more about your life than Drew’s. Troll on troll

    Arkansas has only had 4 players drafted in the NBA in the last 15 years. We had that many taken in the lottery last year.

    You would think with his NBA millions, Popeye Portis could get that eye condition diagnosed and treated.

    BBN please remember how this stuff looks from the other side the next time that a homegrown Kentucky boy chooses another school. It sucks, it hurts, but doing this stuff makes us all look like idiots.

    Portis is just one among the UK hater are out there,, I’m sure with this commitment of Mr. Monk , those ranks will swell even bigger.., And then UK makes Duke look bad last night on national TV , I’m very sure the Duke crazy’s are seeing Red this morning…always remember this, …Its Kentucky against the World…..also, UK should move to a solid #1 recruiting class now..

    Kentucky’s 4th player drafted in 2015 (Booker) will make approx. $800,000/year more than you, Bobby. At least from 2015-17, but who’s counting.
