Things We Learned from Bam’s Late Night Twitter Q&A

Kentucky’s next great power forward was feeling froggy last night on Twitter, opening it up for questions from fans.  We’ve seen him dunk the ball a lot, but we haven’t heard much less from him.  Last night we got a sneak peak of what it will be like to have young Edrice on Kentucky’s campus..

His Number at UK is a Mystery

He ideally would like to be #4, but Charles Matthews is currently holding it down.  After that was brought up, his next option is “2-5-2.”  Does that mean #2, #5, #25?  Your guess is as good as mine.

He’s Been Dunking for a LONG Time

We’ve seen Bam do stuff like this plenty of times, but when did it all get started?

He was 13 years young when he threw down his first dunk, about 7th grade.  I’m sure the dunk was much better looking than the “banked-in, pulls down the rim” dunk I first pulled off when I was 16.

His Favorite TV Show is The Game


For those that have never seen “The Game,” it’s a sitcom/drama on BET about professional football players and their wives.  The shenanigans they got themselves into were pretty funny, but unfortunately for Bam the show just ended last August after a 10-year run.

His Favorite Movie is a No-Brainer

His favorite pair of shoes are the Jordan XI’s.  Maybe he’ll rock the “Space Jam XI’s” next season?


He’s Bringing an Appetite to Lexington

Obviously basketball is priority number one when he gets to Lexington.  Next on this list — Lexington’s fine dining.  When I say fine dining, I mean pizza, his favorite food.  Lucky for Bam, there’ plenty of competition for the best pizza in town.  For fast service and thick crust, I’m a fan of Jet’s Pizza.  He can also sit down at a Mellow Mushroom or throw it back to classic Joe Bologna’s.  The personal pan route at Pie Five or The Blaze is a tasty alternative.  However, you can never go wrong with a $6 Papa John’s Student Special, especially when there’s one right next door to the Wildcat Coal Lodge.

His Favorite Basketball Player will Surprise You

Even though he’s a big fan of Kobe, and he loves watching the former UK guys in the NBA (especially Boogie), the🐐 is Maya Moore.

    No mention of Pazzo’s for Pizza?

    Jet’s Pizza? You lost all credibility, on all issues, forever!

    The 11’s are the best looking basketball shoes ever produced

    Players can’t eat at Joe Bologna’s unless that has changed recently. They got in trouble for giving players free food some years back. I agree with Matt though- Pazzo’s is the place!

    Pazzos is by far the best pizza in Lexington. Any UK student who gets out would know this. Went there weekly when I was a student. Mellow Mushroom is pretty good. Jets? Eh. I am a fan of Old Chicago pizza too (especially when talking thick crust) but it is not close to campus. A buddy of mine is a huge Puccinis advocate. Had Pie 5 for the first time last night. It is fine. Nothing special. It is more like a pizza snack. But if I am in the mood for pizza I am going all in.

    Space Jam XIs are coming out in December I think, so that will work out nicely for him. Otherwise they’ll be an old pair.

    Papa John’s is absolute garbage. He can find better pizza in the campus dining halls.
