Devin Booker gets it

ulis-booker

For the second time today, incoming freshman Devin Booker sent out a tweet that has the BBN smiling and nodding its head:

Oh, Devin. You’ll learn soon enough that it’s because the national media is lazy, and it’s easier to hate than admit you’re wrong.

But, calling out the national media for their hypocrisy? You’re really a member of the family now.

      Jeff Goodman specifically said players won’t be happy next year.

    I’m thinking he’s just talking about fans. If that’s the case does that mean the writer calling out other media for laziness might actually be…

      Young Mr. Booker, when I was your age I was often confounded whenever adults spoke. You know where you’re headed, you know who your team is, you know what you can do in the next 11 & 1/2 months. Learn to ignore what people say, just play ball and enjoy the ride. Welcome to UK.

      He might. A lot of people thought Young would come off the bench too. Shooters find a way to get on the court. I think it will be Alex’s at first. Booker will definitely get some time at the 3 regardless if the twins return. Remember, it is possible to play 3 guard line-ups.

      Yeah he’ll see a ton of minutes at the 3 if the twins come back.

    Jeff Goodman tweeted: “WCS, Dakari Johnson, Karl Towns, Trey Lyles, Marcus Lee, Alex Poythress. Someone isn’t going to be very happy next year.”

      At this point I feel pretty bad for Montreal Harrell

      Ya think Goodman gives a rats a** about playing time for these guys? He is just mad because so many of them are coming back. If the twins come back this dude will be on suicide watch.

      Cal will figure out how to make this work. Besides, these guys seem to be more worried about winning over an exact projection of minutes played.

    It’s time to give Calipari more ketchup and mustard bottles. Play a 2-3 zone and just rotate and wear out the other teams.

    I’ve never seen a fan base so happy so many months away from the start of practice. I love it. Goodbye Julius and James (thanking you both and wishing you success), welcome back Willie, Dakari, Marcus, Alex, Derek, Sam, Tod, EF, Dominique, Brian and good luck to Jarrod and Jon. Hope the statewide tour goes well. Welcome aboard Devin, Trey, Karl, and Tyler.

    That’s a lot of great kids.

    Go Cats

      Hmmm…choice 1: get drafted in the second round and spend they year riding around in buses playing D-League ball or choice 2;return to UK and drive quite possibly the most talented team in UK and possibly NCAA history, win #9 and become UK legends then get drafted in the 1st round in 2015.

      Why is this difficult to decide?

    Great reasoning Booker, if everyone comes in and plays like they’re capable, playing time, championships, & success for all will follow, ask AD & MKG!!!

    Good tweet Devin!
    All of the Coach Cal haters that said he will leave UK for the NBA should be worried about what he will still do at UK.
