Kentucky’s checkerboard initiative has frustrated many fans. At first it was tolerable, until they covered this year’s basketball uniforms in the blue and white “Secretariat” checkerboard.
De’Aaron Fox is not a fan either.
“I’m going to be completely honest…eh, I don’t really like ’em. I‘m not gonna lie to you, I don’t really like the new uniforms,” he said.
“I just, I don’t like the checkers all the way up. You see a lot of checkers on the side of the shorts, not necessarily the top. I’m going to wear them anyways. I’m going to try to make them look good.”
Maybe next time Nike should consult the players before turning the Kentucky Wildcats into the Kentucky Checkerboards.
