WATCH: Isaiah Briscoe crosses one defender, dunks on another

(Photo: Martin Ahven)

Isaiah Briscoe is a star over in Estonia in his first season as a professional basketball player. The former Wildcat averages almost 20 points per game to lead his Kalev-Cramo club, and he was recently named MVP of the Estonia/Latvia All-Star Game after dropping 50 points.

It has helped that Briscoe has gone back to his natural position, point guard, and he appears to have slimmed down quite a bit. He looks much quicker and light on his feet, as you can see here in this NASTY video of him crossing over one defender and then dunking on another.

Who is that guy????

    Clearly he just needed some Estonians to go up against last year. Ha!

    Any idea what Briscoe is making over there? I couldn’t find anything on Google. I’m betting it’s off the books in cash as that’s how the Ruskies like it.

      Best player on that team made a little over $4100 a week last year. Briscoe being one of the 3 Americans they signed is probably in the top category as that is how he expected to perform.

      They play in 2 leagues plus the post season so their season is around 8 months.

      He’s also not paying for anything like rent or utilities and lives in essentially a tax haven.

      He has some local endorsements too.

      So he’s probably making 3.5 times what he would have made in the D’League and still has the option of playing summer league and NBA Preseason… Hes doin okay.

      If he’s making 4k a week over 8 months he’s making close to 4 1/2 times what D league players would make. I think they only get like $25,000 a year.

    He gained weight to play small forward of us. He’s one of the most underappreciated of Cal’s players

      Thank you, people really didn’t appreciate what he did for us. He made a lot of personal sacrifices

      Bulking up really hurt his game offensively especially his shot. But we needed him to rebound and gaurd the other teams best player. He never complained about that either even when all the fans were attacking him.

      Very underappreciated.

    He has been ballin over there. I keep up with Euroleague ball. Hes definitely lived up to his teams expectations which is hard because those teams in the smaller leagues expect every American they sign to be MVP caliber.

    Always like Brisco thought he took alot of flack from the fans. Hope he makes a NBA team next year he deserves it.

    It sucks people hate on him so much, they have no idea how much he sacrificed his game for the team.

    I’d rather listen to that announcer than Chris Webber.

    Good for Isaiah! Man, he elbowed that guy in the face…

    If he indeed is making $16K a month for about 8 months, AND, housing/utilities are provided, plus some endorsement $$ coming in, AND he still has NBA scouts in contact, etc., interested, then that sounds like at least a decent gig.

    Not trying to be a prick but getting an update about Briscoe is like getting an update about Archie Goodwin so when I see a post like this and he is killing it compared to his Kentucky days just infuriates me. Like where was this at when he played here. He did give Kentucky a triple double so I give him that. All I’m saying is is that if he says Kentucky is in his past and he doesn’t want to to talk about Kentucky why should we talk about him?

      EXACTLY. He’s an ungrateful punk….should’ve gone to a D-II school, instead of wasting UK’s time and money.

      KYFan4lyfe, ungrateful punk ? You sound like an ungrateful punk. As far as going to a D-2 (or D-eleven)school, there are quite a few schools between UK and there. Why dont you go fan one of those schools and take 1991 with you ?

      KYFAN4LYFE’s school specializes in wasting time and money.

      ukkatzfan, it’s called a Roman numeral, you fvcktard, and it’s the most common way of denoting divisions in amateur sports.

    I don’t give a #$% about Briscoe, as he left UK, and immediately turned his back on the fans, not even wanting to acknowledge questions at the NBA combine that weren’t about the NBA. What a joke.



    • blackmilk23
      4:19 pm March 29, 2018 Permalink

      That quote was taken out of context. He wanted the same questions all of the other prospects were getting

      A couple of UK bloggers were there asking him a bunch questions about incoming is recruits and Lexington resturaunts and stupid BS. One of the questions was litterally about space aliens.

      He wanted to be taken seriously in the interview process. “I don’t want questions about Kentucky” doesn’t tell the whole story.



    • KYFAN4LYFE
      4:39 pm March 29, 2018 Permalink

      Who said anything about a quote? I saw the #$%*ing video, direct from the combine. Every time someone asked him ANYTHING about UK, he acted insulted.

      Kyfan4lyfe, the difference between you and Briscoe is “you know who he is”.



    • blackmilk23

      He answered all the relevant questions but then they just kept asking him silly questions. Again one of them was actually about space aliens.

      Maybe he should have worded it differently but I think it was fair for him to ask for relevant questions in what essentially amounts to a job interview for him.
