    I will be honest..we wanted to enter the draft but it wasn’t in our favor. We are glad to return to BBN for one more year and we hope to improve over the summer to become the best PG and SG in the country next year. In doing this we will provide a really good shot at a National Championship. FYI: All the haters from this year please don’t jump on the wagon…we would rather you keep your distance..that’s when we play our best. No more TWEAK the TWINS are here! #BBN #INDYFINAL4 #BBN9 #NEWSHOESALLYR #ULLISBAKUPPG #YESSIR

    So whether or not he wanted them to leave, I hope some people apologize for the way they were talking about Aaron Sr.

    Man alive, we’re going to be insane next year. We’re returning 3 of 5 starters from a title game plus WCS, Poythress and Lee, and adding 4 potential stars. Add in a foreign trip (assuming Cal doesn’t save it for a less experienced year) and this should be Cal’s best team ever. That’s scary. I’m not saying 40-0 win by 20 scary because we’re still youngish, but scary. Hopefully the guys that came back all get better and can go pro if they want. We should have enough returning from next year’s squad so we won’t be bare.

    The crazy thing is you can ask 10 different people and get 10 different starting line-ups:

    I think it will start as Twins, AP, Lyles, and WCS and end as Twins, AP or Booker, Lyles, and Towns.

      Think we’ll need a second person that consistently shoot from 15 feet out in that line-up. Therefore a freshman will start.

    I just really felt they’d come back when all was said and done. But wasn’t 100% only 95%. GREAT news from Texas. Go BBN !!!! UL fans just going to get drunk now. Well they probably would anyway. And quit saying 40-0 people. Let them play and no more pressure than usual being at UK.

    Just wondering now that we know the Harrison twins are coming back if we could split up and have a Varsity and JV squad that would compete in the NCAA tournament next year. The possibility for a National Championship and a National Runner-Up from the same school would be very real! Go Cats!

    Cut it out with the 40-0 stuff. And the #9 banner hanging. You guys are giving the trolls the wrong idea. This team is going to be good, yes. Let’s just take one moment to remember for a sec: Our run through the tourney this year put us up against Three of the Four teams that were in last years final fou: Michigan, Wichita State, and Louisville. Let’s not jinx ourselves early, because a bad loss can happen and they would never be forgiven for it, a la Tubby Smith when UAB upset UK.
    It’s great that this team is going to be very good, but lets not start hanging banners just yet.

    • I agree on the 40-0 talk, but the NC talk is not new. I remember the 1978 team had a lot of pressure to win it all because of the 4 seniors we had. Nothing short of a NC was acceptable that year either. The big difference today? Internet and talk radio.

      Not to mention the 1996 team and then 2012 recently. I do understand, as this team is definitely going to be good, let’s not put all the pressure on them so soon. It hasn’t even been a month since we played UCONN…..

    Thought it would be fun to recap some of the recent comments on KSR:

    -“He sealed the conversation with a couple of hugs.” If true, that means bye-bye….

    -Good bye UK, hello D League

    -IF ITS THAT HARD TO DECIDE THEN OBVIOUSLY THEY SHOULD JUST GO! I DONT WANT ANYONE ON MY TEAM THAT DOESNT WANT TO BE HERE!!! [my fave]

    -I think they are going. I think Tyler Ulis may have been the deciding factor. He is going to get playing time. He brings an element missing to the team, unreal quickness, ball hawking ability that will bring 2 or 3 steals a game. With everyone returning this team will be expected to win it all. Lot of that pressure will once again fall on the Harrison’s, If the team doesn’t produce, they again will take the brunt of the heat, if the team does win they will get little credit, because the team was expected to.

    See? Being rational doesn’t make you right. The world doesn’t work like that. Let’s try to remember it next time. It’s all a big guessing game, and frankly, a waste of time. But I guarantee you this: We won’t learn a bloody thing.

    I think it is safe to say that this years team is the most loaded we have had in Cal’s time at UK. I can’t believe that only 2 went pro after this year. Three 7 footers?!?!?! ( Towns-Stretch 7, Cauley-Stein-Shot Blocker and Hyper Athletic, Johnson- True big man in the middle) We have time to let the new guards develop and take the burden off of their shoulders. This year will be crazy. Will have leadership, experience and talent plus depth! Its time to take no. 9! I think if Cal gets 9 this year and the 2 year rule is passed, then he will stay and go in the history books trying to pass UCLA national championship record.

    Next year’s team will go 51 and -11. They will be so talented that not only will they go undefeated, they will form a rift in the space-time continuum that will allow them to go back and also win every game they lost last season. And then they will defeat Chuck Norris in any contest of his own choosing.

    I remember saying in the middle of the season this past year that next year will be the year. Because they struggled and I thought this years team might mix with next years team to make a super team. Losing Julius and Replacing him with T.Lyles and losing Dakari (I think he is going to bolt to the league) and replacing him with K.Towns is addition by subtraction. We now have 2 shot blockers (Willie and K.Towns), 5 shooters (Twins, Booker, Ulis and Towns), We got defenders rebounders, passers and a hellafied back up point with Tyler Ulis! This is team is going to be fun to watch. This is officially a J.Calipari DYNASTY!
