Eyes down here, guys…
Do I have your attention? Okay, good.
There was a time when Isaiah Briscoe and Jamal Murray did not care for one another. They were competitors on the Nike EYBL circuit and in junior men’s national team competition. As Briscoe tells it, “It wasn’t like ‘I hate you. Don’t talk to me.’ It was like ‘That’s it. That’s all you get is the what’s up. Now go away.’”
Things are different now that they’re on the same team, however. Briscoe told WTVQ’s Alex Risen that Murray is one of his two closest brothers at Kentucky.
The thing that brought them together?
“Blame it on the chicken,” said Briscoe.
Wait… Hooters has chicken? I never noticed. I go for the scenery.
