When he’s not looking after his sons, KSR videographer Bradley “B-Roll” McKee is spending his time at home catching up with former Kentucky players. Yesterday, Bradley chatted with Marcus Lee, who played at Kentucky from 2013-2016 before transferring to Cal for his final year.
Right now, Lee is back in Lexington working for Tailor Made Compounding until the coronavirus pandemic is over and he can get back to the G-League, and hopefully, the NBA. He said he’s planning to reach out to his former teammate Karl-Anthony Towns, whose parents have been diagnosed with coronavirus. His father is recovering at home, but his mother Jackie has been placed in a medically-induced coma.
“It was hard hearing that about him because, if anybody’s met Karl, you’ve met his parents and they’ve got the biggest hearts in the world,” Lee said. “My message to him is, I hope he keeps a whole heart and I hope God touches his family as best as He can and keeps them in His arms. I really do wish the best for them and I hope to get in contact with him as soon as possible so I can give him some of the love he’s given to me.”
On a much lighter note, Lee relived his favorite moments at Kentucky, talked about his career in the G-League, and what it meant to come back to Lexington last summer for The Basketball Tournament (TBT) and play in front of Kentucky fans again.
“I think it was kind of just a way to give back to Kentucky. I love this place so much. I know a lot of people took it hard, me transferring, so I just wanted to show it was nothing but love and how much I truly love this place and Kentucky Basketball and the University of Kentucky.”
Back at ya, Marcus.
