University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Overanalyzing the Harrisons’ tweets last night

Big Blue Nation can be a little crazy at times, often when it comes to rumors surrounding a recruit’s decision, or most recently, who is staying and who is going after the season. That’s pretty evident right now as several fans spreads rumor after rumor about the Harrison twins, trying to read into their each and every move throughout the decision making process.

Let’s join in on the paranoia today as we await the final decision by overanalyzing the twins’ tweets from last night. Judging by these tweets, they’re absolutely going pro.

*****

Oh no. Aaron wants to be drafted by Houston, his hometown team. Houston will have a late first round pick and an early second round pick in the draft. Houston needs a shooting guard to back up James Harden. Aaron is currently ranked No. 33 on Chad Ford’s Big Board, a late first-rounder or early second-rounder. He’s begging Houston to draft him! He’s going pro!!!

 

How does he know LaMarcus Aldridge is nasty? Did he work out with Portland recently? Why would he know that? Portland’s in the playoffs, that can’t be it. Maybe he wants to play with Aldridge in Portland because he’s nasty, like good nasty. Plus Aldridge grew up in Texas, too. Aaron’s tweeting about the NBA! The NBA is on his mind! He’s going pro!!!

 

What does that mean, pointing fingers? Towards the door? Towards the NBA? He said take responsibility. He wants to live on his own and be independent, financially responsible. He’s giving Kentucky the finger and taking action. NO. He’s going pro!!!!

 

HE WANTS NBA GROUPIES TOO! HE’S DEFINITELY GOING PRO!!!!

 

Sushi? Malone’s serves sushi. I bet he met with that agent again to finalize the paperwork they went over Tuesday afternoon. No. NO. It’s really happening. They’re leaving!

Think about it…

(S)o long
(U)niversity of Kentucky!
(S)orry But I
(H)ave To Put My Name
(I)n The Draft!

They’re so gone. These tweets support every single thing that guy wrote on the message board about the twins leaving. His friend shared a chile con queso with Aaron Harrison Sr. at the Chili’s Too! while waiting for a flight to Dallas and he knows the whole story.

It was a good run, guys.

    I prefer Tyler Ulis as the starting PG. The problem is I’m not sold on Devin Booker making an immediate impact, so there will be a void in the backcourt obviously if the twins leave. The team will really miss the scoring James Young provided during the slow starts. He kept the team in 5-6 games they would have lost.

      You are crazy if you think size has anything to do with it… Tyler is a “true pg” which is what this year’s team needed… that was Calipari’s first so called “tweak” was getting Andrew to get his teammates more involved… that won’t be a problem with Tyler… The kid has game, and is a threat as a scorer too… don’t pay too close attention to size, Look at Shabazz Napier and Russ Smith… you don’t have to be 6’6″ but in the end if you are you will have a better career most likely… I’m hoping the Harrison kids stay too but if they do go, don’t get too down, BBN is gonna love Tyler… The kid has handles like I’ve never seen before… and has sick passing skills… potential to be the next
      .. dare I say Rondo… best part Tyler is a 4 year player!

    Wait, now I get it. Napier was great in the first half but didn’t do much in the second half. It took to the twins time to adjust. Not having WCS underneath as a rim-protector (wish I had one of those in jail) made it easier for Boatright and Napier. Maybe the twins aren’t the quickest, but they did adjust. Aaron did a good job defensively on Napier in the second half. He also did a good job shooting over 50% from 3 in the tournament. Both of the twins were our most reliable free throw shooters all season long. If they do return we’ll have depth in the backcourt. I don’t seriously believe Hawkins is better. Also, when I said Willis would be better at the 2, that was just me being a little special. That’s all. I still love you guys. I need someone to hold me.

      Joe, Willis knows with the talent that already exists and with the talent coming he will not see any minutes. I know the spots are different but even with last year, a superb talent (Lee) didn’t see any time until a major injury happened. I like Willis, watched him play, but he is moving on to greener pastures. He won’t hang around like Hood. I hate it, but I don’t blame him. It will be an exciting year

    11:58 am April 24, 2014 Permalink

    If the Harrison Twins come back, Ulis & Booker will be backing them up from the bench. There’s no way they are taking the starting spots from Andrew & Aaron. As for the reason for the delay, it could be that it’s been a tough decision. It could also be that they are preparing for finals week because they do go to class. They have made their decision and will announce when Coach gives them the go ahead. My hope is that they do come back, but they have to make the best decision for them personally. The reason people go to college is so that they can have a career. What I don’t understand is why people have to criticize them and why people can’t just give them space and let them make their choice without feeling stalked and harassed. Why over analyse their every move? They were watching the playoffs last night. They want Houston to win because that’s their home team. Andrew had sushi for dinner. So what?

Pay attention, the NBA is a far different level than the twins played most of the year. Just watch the playoffs… I’d hate to see them try to take a contract too early and lose out on money. But, either way, I wish them luck. I am sure BIG BLUE will be just fine!

    Andrew and Aaron could both make a roster this year, so if they’ve seen enough of each other, they’re off to bigger and better places…..D-League callups are in their near future should they decide. Perhaps they should ask PJ Hairston.
