LOOK: The Kentucky Basketball team meets Justify



From one blue blood to another, right? This afternoon, John Calipari took the Kentucky Basketball team to Churchill Downs to meet Triple Crown champion Justify, resulting in this fantastic photo:

Some questions and observations, because I’ve got them:

  • Where is Quade?
  • Why does Brad look like he’s about to cry?
  • So that’s what Zan Payne looks like.
  • What is so interesting that PJ isn’t looking at the camera?
  • Jemarl Baker and Immanuel Quickly showing off some edge with their ripped-knee pants
  • EJ Montgomery looks taller than Nick Richards (not counting hair)
  • Damnit, there’s that checkerboard jersey.

Some more photos, from @KentTaylorWAVE:


This is probably the only photo that exists in which Keldon Johnson looks scared of something.

In the background of this shot, you can see Zan Payne’s knee brace, which he’s wearing as he recovers from surgery:


And Nick Richards being a little bit of a tease with the carrot:

I’m happy the team got to meet Justify and all, but this does not bode well for breaking that connection between Kentucky Basketball and horse racing. Or maybe we’ll switch to stars to honor Justify’s silks?

    Can you people quit with the “I hate the checkerboard” mantra? It’s childish and pretty embarrassing at this point. The checkerboards look completely fine and forgive me for not thinking that uniform designs are very important in the world of sports. Oregon looks stupid.

      They are important to the people who wear them, and the players have openly said that they don’t like them.
