Vivek Ranadive, the owner of the Sacramento Kings, and Vlade Divac, the Kings’ VP of basketball operations, flew to Lexington to support DeMarcus Cousins and Willie Cauley-Stein in the UK alumni game. The two sat courtside as they watched their prized big men do work against North Carolina in the exhibition game.
I sat across from them in the second half and I spent most of that time watching Vivek. He was cheering like some little kid who was attending his first basketball game. I’m pretty sure I saw him beg for a free t-shirts when the cheerleaders threw them out, too.
Pretty cool of them to come to Lexington for the game and I believe Vivek is speaking to a class at UK tomorrow.
