Your first 2013-2014 team picture

You’re looking at the first 2013-2014 team picture. Coach Cal tweeted today that he had the guys over to “talk to them about the traits of some of my best teams”…and presumably, have some grilled meat.

Six observations:

— Is there ever a picture in which Dakari Johnson doesn’t smile?

— Cal’s dog is not having any of this, is totally out guys.

— The Harrison Twins must have heard Matt’s challenge on the radio to pose separately last week. Andrew’s the one on the right, he has slightly longer hair than his brother.

— Of course Marcus Lee is wearing Chucks.

— Brian Long, Sam Malone, Dakari Johnson, and EJ Floreal are going to wear socks with their sandals, and the rest of us will just have to deal with it.

— That is one big team.

Leave your observations below.

    The team is taking a picture together and Julius Randle is isolated and not smiling. This does not bode well for Kentucky and can only mean one thing: the rumor that him and the twins not liking each other must be true. As you can see he looks aggravated, annoyed, and angry and is not smiling, which can only mean one thing, he is upset that the twins are in the picture with him. Cats fan, worry no more about this rumor, as of today it has been proven to be true.

    Still waiting for a readable font size- like before the “improvements”. Otherwise, progress to you is regress to me. You have some great writing. Please make it readable.

    Great after last year to see a team with so much comparative depth. The most striking thing about this team is the overall size at every position. If they make a commitment to playing defense every possession, and hustling for every loose ball/rebound, I think there will be only 3-4 teams who have any chance of competing with them for forty minutes. With their size, depth and athleticism the only thing standing between them and glory is commitment to defense and rebounding-mark it down.

    The twins look big. Of course Marcus is wearing chucks, he’s from the west coast. I hope he toughens up to play east coast ball! Big team size and number wise. Cal got embarrassed last year, mainly because he had no bench at all, I don’t think a lack of bench will be a factor this year. This might be the tallest team in division 1 this year. Good to see them all together…..finally! BBN

    Hey look, it’s our 40-0 basketball team to go along with our 0-11 football team.

    Funny how small the twin next to Dakari appears and how monstrous the other twin looks next to Brian Long

    11: The same thing that stood out to me. Also Cal looks to be 6′-6″ sitting down next to Poy & Lee.

    Notice how small Long and Malone look standing next to one of the Twins. Then look how tall
    Young is. The UL guards are roughly the same height as Jones/Russ Smith. They get to guard
    our guys and they will have a 6-7 “rim protector” in Harrell.

    #2. wishful thinking you would love for there to be a problem. I see that most Cat fan’s didn’t respond to your trolling ass, but if you look at the pic only one was smilling dakari Johnson. So we must be in for a terrible season based on your way of thinking (not)!!! Prediction if this team doesn’t go 40-0 they will scare the shit out of it. So believe it little brother we’re bringing home #9, and on our way we will leave behind the remnants of teams that wish they were. So like the snake you are bring on all the venom you can loser. BBN OWNS YOU YA YOU

    James Lee and Harrison twin #1 look to have shoulders as wide as Dakari’s. Troubling. We need some more big butt big men!

    This pic represents our recipe for success this season: it begins and ends with the talent of Randle and Andrew Harrison AND Poythress and Willie must be in the middle as the heart/leadership of the team

    I don’t know what to respond on first, what are we clothes and shoes critics or are we talking basketball good god you people crack me up. #35 don’t know how much wider Johnson’s shoulders could be the guy weighs almost 270 lbs. And if I did miss on my earlier post my bad, but still don’t make the connection with his name being a Kentucky fan.

    #35 you don’t know the players names let alone how brod someones shoulders are. His name is James Young and Marcus Lee is beside Cal. You need to follow more if your a true fan that’s ridiculous.

    Will you please make me a sandwich?

    @dsmaggard.. I’m pretty sure he knows their names and just forgot to put commas in between them.. I hope so anyways. I think he meant it to read as James, Lee, and Harrison Twin #1… I could be wrong, but I doubt it. Who wouldn’t know their names this close to the season?

    Brian Long wearing a humungously too big long sleeved t shirt with sleeves rolled up and tucked into similarly ridiculously oversized basketball shorts. Try again, Brian.

    Does anyone know the white kids name on the right three spots from the end up front. the reason I’m asking you can watch a YouTube video that comes up under James Young, and I’m almost positive he is in that scrimmage that last like 10 minutes, and he’s making like every shot while at the same time Young makes absolutely no shots, hope that doesn’t contain you lol.
