From the Archives: LeBron James visits UK

Way back in 2010, the King himself made an appearance at Rupp Arena. Not only did LeBron James serve as the iconic “Y”,” but he also spent time with the team and coaching staff before and after the game.

A few days ago I stumbled across an old video depicting the visit made by our friends at KY Wildcats TV, and it’s too good not to share. Watch the full video for lots of buried treasure, including LeBron with hair, commentary from Mark Krebs, a shot of a very young Brad Calipari, the longest and baggiest basketball shorts you’ve ever seen and a maxed-out Swaggy Cal saying stuff like, “you all know LeBron, right?”

Talk about a trip down memory lane.

    BEE-rad’s photo op with Lebron was earned, not…oh never mind. That joke is totally played.

    The irony. Arguably, the greatest individual player. Frustration. Decent team. Just shy. LeBron will be an incredible coach.
